Choosing the Eyebrow Shape for You

Choosing the Eyebrow Shape for You

Eyebrows are one of the most important part of your body, as they are essential to convey emotion. It can be a daunting task to know which shape suits you. It doesn’t matter if you have thick and bushy, or small and neat eyebrows, with proper technique you can ensure that they’re accurately tailored to your face. We’ve narrowed down face shape into five categories, explaining the best way to complement them with the help of a well groomed pair of brows. We’ve also added certain names of famous faces for you to use as brow idols, and some instructions on how you can live up to your full brow potential, with Veet.

 

 

 Long

Long

The long face shape just radiates elegance. When shaping the brows to suit this shape, the goal is to avoid making it look longer than it is. This can be achieved with thick, flat, horizontal brows. These break up the face, and prevent the eye from wandering up and down.

A squarer jaw is a striking feature, reminiscent of classic Hollywood beauty. The thing to keep in mind however, is that because of its strength it can sometimes draw focus. Either balance this with a thick strong brow, or soften it with gentle curves.

 Oval Or Round

Oval/Round 

This face shape is made up soft lines, and as such can often look very sensual. Because of this it was often idealised in classical paintings. The ideal eyebrow shape is a soft angled arch, to contrast and complement the curves.

This face shape is often seen as being the cutest, but beauties such as Grace Kelly have proved that this can also as striking as any other shape. A thick shallow curve of a brow contrasts the angles of the jaw, and softens the effect.

The diamond face shape can often give its owner an exotic air, and has been gifted to some of the most striking beauties in history. Because with this shape, the brow is on the widest part of the face, this can be broken up with soft curves up and down, which also softens the angles.
