Oval Face forehead is wider than the chin prominent cheekbones face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin - This is considered the ideal face shape. The brows play no role in making the face appear "more oval" -it already is oval. The perfect eyebrow shape is widely considered to be the soft angled eyebrow shape. The soft angled shape goes straight up and then gently curves round at the top and down. The majority of women (known for their beauty) in our study, with an oval
face shape had a soft angled eyebrow shape
Round Face is almost as wide as it is long face is widest at the cheeks
The Goal- Make a round face appear less round by making the face appear longer.
The Solution- Apply lines that go more up and down the face. This helps draw the eye up and down and lengthens it. Create as high an arch as you can. The Eyebrow- A high arched brow accomplishes this. Look for a brow shape that
follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and creates more vertical lines.
Stay away from a rounded brow shape. This makes a round face look very round.
Many customers prefer the soft angled look - presented below. Consider also
angled brow shapes and the higher arches.
Long Face forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all about the same width face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin
The Goal- Make a long face appear shorter The Solution- Apply straight horizontal lines that stop the eye moving up and down the face
The Eyebrow- A flat brow shape accomplishes this. It's horizontal shape makes
the face appear shorter.
Square Face forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all about the same widths
the squared jawline is the most obvious feature
The Goal- A square jaw is a strong feature. Balance it with a strong brow or soften it with curves. The Solution- A thicker stronger color and shape balances a heavier jawline. A defined sharp peak at the top of the brow makes the brow appear stronger. The Eyebrow- Angled brows create this balance. Also consider the curved brow
shape suggested for diamond face shapes. The curves soften stronger features.
Heart Face similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point
The Goal- Soften your look with curves and create a beautiful heart shape using the point of your chin as the heart bottom and the brows as the top of the heart. The Solution- Apply rounded brows. The curve of the brow is soft, feminine and attractive and also creates the heart like look of the face. The Eyebrow- The best eyebrow shape for a heart shaped face is rounded. A low
arch rounded brow creates a natural look, while a highly arched brow can add
length to a shorter heart shaped face or create a dramatic look.
Diamond Face not as common as the other face shapes
typically the face is highly angular the forehead is somewhat short and face is widest at the temples.
The Goal- Soften the angles in your diamond face shape and make the widest portion of the face appear less wide. The Solution- Curves will both soften your look and make the widest portion of
your face look less wide. The Eyebrow- The curved brow shape does this. Notice that many beautiful
celebrities that have a diamond face shape also have curved brows. A second
popular choice are round brow stencils- also suggested for the heart face shape.
