Brow Shapes…. What Shape Suits Me?

So I have been reflecting back to before I had my brows done and I was pencilling and shaping them in the style given to me by my brow beautician. But did this suit my face shape and enhance my brow? Being the serial over thinker that I am, I had thoughts like were they too thick? Too Thin? Too Long? Too Close together? Too Flat? The list goes on. So I thought I would share some knowledge regarding ideal brows for your face shape.

That said, if you are happy with what shape you have and just want an enhancement, this is perfect too. I am here to guide you and give you as much information as possible and we arrive at the outcome together. So here goes.

Rectangular/ Oval Face

Long and slender and the same width at the forehead and cheekbones. With this brow it is recommended to create a slightly flatter brow with length and not so close together.

Round Face

This face shape is as long as it is wide. The widest points are at the cheeks and ears. The chin and the hairline are usually rounded. An angled brow will slim a rounded face. 

Square Face

A strong square jawline is present with a square hairline although the horizontal and vertical aspects the face are similar. A bigger, longer brow with height is recommended however not too angled. Soften the face shape, widen the arch and lift it. Avoid flat or rounded brows.

Heart Shaped Face

Wide cheek bones and/ or a wide forehead. The face narrows to a delicate chin. These face shapes have length.  Add height to the brow and never lift the tail.

Triangle Shaped face

The opposite of the heart shape. The jawline is prominent and the widest measurement of the face.  The face is narrower at the temple and cheekbones with a smaller forehead.  Create a longer brow with a shorter tail.

Diamond shape

Forehead and jawline similar width with the cheekbones being the widest measurement of the face. Cross between a heart and an oval shape. Make the arch wider here and lift the tail to create symmetry. Occasionally drop the bulb.
