The Ultimate Guide To Eyebrow Shapes

What Is The Best Eyebrow Shape For Your Face?

There are numerous eyebrow shapes available, but not all of them will look good on you. Many women tend to make the same mistake when it comes to picking eyebrow shapes; they want their eyebrows to match the shape of their eye- rather than matching the shape of their face. You probably have an idea about what looks best after browsing around for a while, however, your brows must follow the natural shape/contours of your facial features.

Cara Delevingne’s arched eyebrows combined with her triangular-shaped face gives her a great looking brow. I would recommend she take up an “H” or rounded arch if she was willing to go bolder.

Same brow, different face shapes. Heart-shaped faces suit a straight brow while oval and diamond-shaped faces suit an arched brow.

The Best Eyebrow Shape For Your Face

  1. If you have a heart-shaped face: You should go for very thin eyebrows or else your features may look even more narrow than they already are. Generally speaking, if you want to get the most out of your eyes, it is best to keep everything below the eye clear of any stylistic distractions (such as sideburns).
    As well as keeping the rest of your hairline cleanly shaven, that also means that your eyebrows need to be fairly thin too (so that none of them shows when looking at you directly from the front; “eyebrows are sisters, not twins”).
  2. If you have an oval-shaped face: Your eyebrows should be fairly straight so that they are parallel to the top of your nose. You shouldn’t have any arch in them or else it will look like they are heading downwards and this may make your eyes appear droopy rather than open and wide.
  3. If you have a square-shaped face: Your eyebrow should be slightly curved inwards near the tail end since this will give you an adjusted version of the “Oval” eyebrow shape which is best suited for your facial features.
    However, if you go for a super deep arch then it might create too much of an angle with the forehead when looking at someone directly from the front, so it is better to go for a shallower arch than what you might think looks best.
  4. If you have a round-shaped face: Your eyebrows should be evenly curved and compliment your natural features perfectly without looking too rounded or boxy at all (think of how white “windows” are cut into buildings).
  5. If you have an oblong-shaped face: You can choose any eyebrow shape that appeals to you as this will still work well with your facial structure, however, if you were to completely ignore everything else in this article then at least make sure that your eyebrows are not straight across!
    As mentioned earlier, the straight horizontal eyebrow shape is best used on people who naturally have that type of expression (since it will enhance their look more than yours).
  6. If you have a diamond-shaped face: Your eyebrow should be fairly straight and slightly curved inwards towards the end where the beginning point of your eyebrow meets the arch (similar to how eyebrows are shaped on Oval-shaped faces, but just with more definition and curvature).

The Worst Eyebrow Shape For Your Face        

  1. If you have a round-shaped face: You should avoid an eyebrow shape that makes your face appear even fuller. An excessively arched eyebrow is best saved for someone with an angled or Heart-shaped face (since it enhances these features rather than downplaying them like what happens when someone with a rounder facial type attempts such a style).
  2. If you have an oval-shaped face: You should avoid straight eyebrows, as this will make your facial features appear less open and therefore more elongated than they already are.
  3. If you have a square-shaped face: Straight eyebrows aren’t the best option either (as mentioned earlier), so maybe keep them thin to avoid having any weird unbalanced areas on your face when looking at someone directly from the front.
  4. If you have a diamond-shaped face: The way I see it is that straight eyebrows suit Diamond-shaped faces even worse than Oval ones since it just accentuates the angles of their features even more! This might be worth trying if you’re after high fashion looks though…
  5. If you have a heart-shaped face: The way I see it is that straight eyebrows aren’t the best for this shape either, since they just add extra weight to the lower half of your face when looking at someone from the front. It would be better to avoid any type of eyebrow style that makes your chin look much wider than what you already have going on, so stay away from excessively heavy or dark brows.

How To Find The Best Thickness For Your Eyebrows         

  1. If you have an oval-shaped face: You should opt for medium width eyebrows (so ones that are not too bold and not “thin”) but make sure they are not too thick either (otherwise people might think of them as “bushy”.)
  2. If you have a round-shaped face: Thin eyebrows can make your cheeks look even plumper than they already are, so keep the width of your brows on the thicker side (otherwise people might try to find ways of insulting you by mentioning that you look like a hamster with such thin eyebrows).
  3. If you have an oblong-shaped face: Keep the thickness of them in check (though not as much as if they were on someone with a rounder face type), and go for medium or thick widths at most. This way they can balance out how long your features already are without making it any worse or distracting from their natural shape too much!
  4. If you have a diamond-shaped face: Medium to thick eyebrows (ideally shaped in the way that they are wider towards the temples and get thinner closer to the arch) are best for this shape since it will help to balance out how much narrower your forehead area looks when compared with your cheeks.
  5. If you have a heart-shaped face: Don’t attempt very bushy eyebrows unless you know what you’re doing, since too much hair detracts from the appearance of your already delicate chin that should be highlighted rather than concealed! Instead, go for medium or thin eyebrows, but only use them if you think they might bring out more beauty in your facial structure rather than downplay it.
