PERFECT EYEBROW GUIDE

March 17, 2016


Hello loves, I hope you are having a lovely and fruitful week.

In the course of learning how to do my own makeup I have suddenly become very obsessed with eyebrows. Every time I flip through Instagram I keep lusting after someone’s perfectly done eyebrows. And amazingly they’re of different shapes, sizes and also vary in color intensity, its so wondrous.
So in search of the perfect eyebrows for my face I came upon this little guide which makes general sense, however if you like your brows however they are. Girl you keep doing what your heart desires!

Oval face:
This face usually has a wider forehead with prominent cheekbones and it tapers towards the chin. In other words it the perfect face because we contour ourselves to achieve this illusion.
For people with this type of face the goal is to maintain its ‘ideal’ shape. So the brows are preferably supposed to be soft angled nothing like upside down Nike logos or so.

Long face:
This face shape is generally elongated and gracefully tapers towards the chin and some individuals have a prominent chin. 
The goal for such faces is to make it appear less elongated hence the eyebrow shape will be flat. The horizontal ‘line’ of the eyebrow will give an illusion of a shorter face by stopping the viewer from seeing the elongated face.

Round face:
This face has a width and length of almost similar measurements and is usually widest at the cheeks.
The goal is to make the face appear longer therefore the preferable shape of eyebrows is a high arch. The arching lines will draw the viewer’s eye up and down therefore making your face look lengthy.
Do avoid rounded brows as they make your face look rounder.

Square face:
The forehead, cheekbones and jawline are almost of the same width. The face is generally square/ boxy and the jawline is a prominent feature.
The goal is to soften the strong jawline hence start with a curved eyebrow shape then add more angle to create the balance needed. The stronger and bony a jawline is the more angled the brow shape.

Heart face:
The faces tapers strongly towards the chin which tends to be ‘pointy’ and the forehead can be a prominent feature.
The goal is to soften the pointy chin and perhaps the prominent forehead. Therefore start with a low arch, round curved brows and add volume to it as it creates the illusion of length to the forehead and balances the chin.

Diamond face:
The face is widest at the temples and sort of bony as well as very angular.
Your goal is to soften the whole face and make the temples look less wide. Hence curved eyebrows shape will soften the angles of the face and create an illusion of a ‘narrow’ temple area. 

I hope you've learned a thing or two and have a look to experiment on, I know I do.
Have a lovely day.
