How To Shape Your Eyebrows To Suit Your Face

How To Shape Your Eyebrows To Suit Your Face

With the emergence of more relatable celebrities and influencers, excessive brow plucking and over drawing has become a thing of the past, giving way to more full, natural looking type of brows. However, just like everything in life, brows are not a one size fit all, and finding the right brow shape to flatter your face, although not simple can greatly improve your facial symmetry and even make you look younger.

So, in order to learn how to shape your brows, we’ve written down a list of face shapes along with tips for how to shape them to flatter your face.

How to Shape your Eyebrows

Eyebrow shaping in Dubai, is a major skill. It’s all about accentuating the angles and proportions of your face shape. When shaping your brows, try to keep them as balanced and as symmetrical as possible, also use two shades to shape your eyebrows, giving them more dimension. Start at your natural arch using the same as your hair or one shade darker and begin filling in the arch before using a lighter shade to fill in the front of your brow.

Shaping your eyebrows to suit your Face Shape

  1. Round-Shaped Face

With round face shapes, the goal is to elongate your face, so go for high arched brows as they will provide a vertical point, creating the illusion of a slimmer face.  Start filling in your brows at the arch, darkening them slightly to accentuate the shape, and finish up with a little highlighter to your brow bone for even more lift.

  1. Oval-Shaped Face

With oval face shapes, the cheekbones are high, and the forehead is slightly wider than the chin. So, the goal here is to help balance the facial features by going for softly angled brows.

Although people with oval face shapes can wear almost any brow shape, a soft-angled look with a slight arch will add dimension to your face without being too harsh.

  1. Heart-Shaped Face

For those with heart shaped faces, soft rounded brows will look best as it’ll help soften the more angular areas of your face, and unless you have a short face, avoid high arches.  This is because your forehead is wider and your chin a lot sharper. So, a well-groomed brow will help balance your facial features.

  1. Square-Shaped Face

If you have a square shaped face, go for thick, flat brows with a slight arch that will soften the angles of your face and add depth since the forehead, jawline, and cheekbones are all the same width.

  1. Diamond-Shaped Face 

With a diamond-shaped face, the primary goal is to shorten your face, and the best way to do this is by creating a curved brow, which lifts your face upwards, making it appear rounder. Feel free to also lengthen your brows as you see fit, it’ll helps soften the sharp jawline.

  1. Long-Shaped Face

Forehead, cheekbones, and chin are a similar width

With long face shapes, the main goal is to add width. So, drawing them out horizontally will help rebalance your face. Aim to draw them flat with an elongated downward curve, to give you a slight arch without elongating your face.
