Wondering how to shape your eyebrows? There’s a wealth of information online but it can be confusing to know what’s right for you. It may sound simple but there’s no one way to get the perfect brows. Like haircuts, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Knowing the basics of eyebrow shaping is crucial but you should also take into consideration the types of eyebrows that would suit your particular face shape. Different eyebrow shapes suit different people, so it’s important to know which shape is right for you.
If you’re a beauty lover, creating perfectly sculpted brows is a must. The right eyebrow shape will open your eyes, enhance your features and you can wear minimal makeup and still look amazing! But how do you achieve the perfect look for your face? Here’s a short tutorial explaining the best eyebrow shapes according to face types, so you can choose what’s best for you!
1. Round-shaped Face
If you have a round face, go for structured brow with longer ends and angled arches. This eyebrow shape will make your round face appear slimmer and more oval, adding instant definition and dimension to your look. Try to create a higher arch to define bone structure that’s lacking. Make sure your brows are well-balanced and contoured for a perfect look.
2. Oval-shaped Face
This is considered the perfect face shape so consider yourself lucky if you have an oval face! All of you have to do to get the best brows is to get the thickness right. If you have small facial features, go for slimmer arches whereas those with large eyes, lips and a high forehead would look well with thicker brows.
3. Heart-shaped Face
If you’ve been blessed with a heart-shaped face, go for rounded, soft brows with a natural color. Complement the sharp angles of your face with brows that create curves and fluidity rather than angled arches.

4. Square-shaped Face
If you have a square face, try and create eyebrows that have a less boxy look. The secret lies in the arch of the brows. Create a soft look by adding angle to the peak, giving the appearance of having a narrower and longer face.
5. Oblong Face
For those with an oblong face, try and achieve a fuller effect to make your face look plumper. Pay attention to where your eyebrows end and try to go for shorter brows. Use an angled pencil to achieve this and you’re good to go!
6. Diamond-shaped Face
If you have a diamond-shaped face, go for linear brows. Don’t create high arches as they will make your face appear longer. Instead, create a flat brow shape for the best and most flattering results.
