We’re here to help you understand how to shape eyebrows depending on your face type. What are you waiting for? Read ahead to frame and highlight the beautiful features you have with ease.
Eyebrow shapes for different face types
1. Eyebrow shape for round face
The best way to shape eyebrows for a round face is by lifting everything upwards rather than outwards. Use an eyebrow pencil to create a sharp arch and make it slightly darker here than the rest of your eyebrow. Take the arch as high as possible, without making it look unnatural. Groom your hair well so that they point upwards and avoid rounded brow shapes.
2. Eyebrow shape for square face
The idea is to create soft and curved eyebrows to make your face look longer. While doing so, you must create a dip in the centre and a subtle rise above the eyebrow bone. The arches should be drawn in such a way that grabs the attention from the jaw to the eyes and soften the jaw.
3. Eyebrows for a heart-shaped face
If you have a heart-shaped face, the trick is to balance your chin as the focus is already on your eyes and forehead. So, go for a soft, straight, rounded, and low arch to balance your features. Flaunt full, fluffy eyebrows as your forehead is the widest part of your face and can handle the attention.
4. Eyebrows for an oval-shaped face
You are blessed if you have an oval face as there are no rules that apply while doing your eyebrows in this situation. All you need to do is use your brow pencil to create a natural, soft, long eyebrow with a lower arch at the tail. However, an oval-shaped face can pull off any eyebrow shape so feel free to pick your favourite eyebrow shape as you won’t go wrong.
5. Eyebrow shape for diamond face
Have a diamond face shape? Go for a straight brow without a peak to achieve the desired effect and widen the appearance of your forehead. Keep the arch rounded to make your face appear shorter. A pro tip to clean up around the brow and sharpen your face is to use a concealer. Make sure that you choose the right concealer shade and go for a shade or two lighter to create a brightening effect. You can now find your ideal concealer shade match on the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool in just a few clicks.
6. Eyebrow shape for rectangle face
Thinking about how to shape eyebrows for a rectangle face? Non-structured eyebrow shapes are what you need to create as a rectangle face is long, with a defined jawline. Try a shape with a slight curve at the end to flatter your features. Avoid peaked eyebrows as that will make your face look even longer.
7. Eyebrows for triangle shaped face
You have a triangle face if your jawline is wider than your forehead. In this situation, you must add volume and fullness to your eyebrows as that will help soften the features. So, keep the arches curved and low and do not narrow the tail of the brows.
