If we know one thing to be true in today’s day and age of makeup trends it’s that, above all else, eyebrows stand center stage. From instantly framing your face to being the ultimate finishing touch—or even standing on their own altogether to complete your makeup look—eyebrows have a way of tying everything together. Which is why we’re sharing how to find the right eyebrow shape for your face as well as how to pick out the best eyebrow makeup (including eyebrow mascara) to style your eyebrows.
WHAT’S THE BEST eyeBROW SHAPE FOR YOUR FACE?
First and foremost, it’s important to realize that like jeans, shoes, and the perfectly complementary shade of red lipstick, not every eyebrow shape will flatter every face. From accentuating your facial structure to framing your well-manicured smoky eye, a tailored set of eyebrows can make or break your look. Below, find out what type of eyebrow shape will work best with your facial features.
The Best Eyebrow Shape for Square Faces
If you have a square face, gently curved eyebrows are ideal. This eyebrow shape works for more angular facial structures because they can help soften your facial features.
The Best Eyebrow Shape for Round Faces
If you have a round face, angular eyebrows are your best bet. The same way curved eyebrows offer the perfect contrast to a square face, angular eyebrows are best for round face shapes. When your eyebrows have just enough of a strictly styled arch, they can lend to the illusion of a more defined bone structure—which is nothing short of eye-catching.
The Best Eyebrow Shape for Heart-Shaped Faces
If you have a heart-shaped face, well-groomed eyebrows are the way to go. This face shape is characterized by a wider forehead followed by narrower jaw. Since your forehead is a bit more expansive, the last thing you want to do is try to rock an ultra-thick brow. Instead, head to the salon or pick up a pair of tweezers to create a well-groomed, not too-thin arch. Be sure to only pluck from the underside of your eyebrow to keep the top of your arch in tip-top shape.
The Best Eyebrow Shape for Long Faces
If you have a long face, slightly extended eyebrows will look awesome on you. If you feel like your facial features are a tad elongated, slightly extended eyebrows can create a new focal point. When you style your eyebrows past the ends of your eyes, instead of focusing on the vertical span of your features, eyes will be drawn to your horizontal characteristics.
