Just as the shape of a mustache can drastically change the appearance of a man’s face, the shape of the eyebrows greatly affects the appearance of the eyes.Finding the right eyebrow shapes for your face types

The overall appearance of the eye area is defined by the arch, length, and thickness of the eyebrow.

Knowing your face shape is the first step to understanding which eyebrow shape best suits you. Start by pulling your hair back from your face, and with no makeup on, look closely in the mirror.

There are six basic face types:

Eyebrow advice for a oval face shape.OVAL SHAPE

  • Your forehead is wider than your chin.
  • You have prominent cheekbones.
  • Your face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin.

If your face is oval you can flaunt that coveted high eyebrow shape like a pro. Thinner high arches are “an attention-grabbing power brow” for oval faces because it suits the proportions.

Shaping eye brows for a round face type.ROUND SHAPE

  • Your face is almost as wide as it is long.
  • Your face is widest at the cheeks.

A round face adds a bit of flexibility when it comes to your brows. A slim medium arch is the ideal shape because it thins out the face, but how slim can be up to you.

Eyebrow advice for a long face type.LONG SHAPE

  • Your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all about the same width.
  • You may have a prominent chin; and
  • Your face has an elongated appearance

A straight, medium thick brow with a very subtle arch suits your long face by drawing the attention outward instead of up and down.

Shaping your eyebrows for a square jawed face.SQUARE SHAPE

  • Your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all about the same width.
  • A squared jawline is the most obvious feature

You should try moderately thick brows with a subtle arch. The goal is to make your forehead space look wider which will help to balance out a strong jaw line.

Eyebrow advice for a heart face type.HEART SHAPE

  • You are similar to an oval shape but your chin tapers to a point.

Your heart-shaped face looks best with fuller brows with a medium arch, which looks young and polished. The round arch also helps to soften your pointed chin.

Eyebrow advice for a diamond face type.DIAMOND SHAPE

  • You have a face that is highly angular
  • Your forehead is somewhat short; and
  • Your face is widest at the temples

Not as common as the other face shapes. The use of curves will both soften your face and make the widest portion look less wide.
