“Put your best face forward”.
In today’s world, first impressions are important, and little things like your haircut, makeup, and eyebrows can make a big difference.
Just like haircuts, brows are not “one-size-fits-all” and finding the best way to shape them can depend on your face shape.
Getting your brow shape right can help with your faces overall symmetry, and make you look younger, better rested, and healthier.
Let’s look at some tips on how to choose the best eyebrows, based on your face shape.
Once you’ve chosen your ideal eyebrow shape, give us a call at Jiva Spa Toronto to book a Calgary's eyebrow treatment to give you the most gorgeous eyebrows on the block.
GENERAL BROW RULES
No matter your face shape, there are some guidelines for brows which everyone can benefit from knowing.
Start the head of the brow at the bridge of the nose.
Hold a pencil vertically against your nose to find this point.
When arching your brows, avoid a “rainbow” by creating the arch two-thirds of the way out, and not in the centre of the brow.
Avoid making your brows too short, by imagining a line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the eye.
Lastly, be careful the tail doesn’t end lower than the head, as this can cause the eyes to appear “droopy”, rather tapering the tail to a fine point helps to lift the eye.
Here are some eyebrow shaping tips depending on the shape of your face.
IF YOU HAVE A ROUND FACE
If your face is round, you’re in good company – Beyoncé, Mila Kunis, Penelope Cruz, and Debra Messing are just a few of your compatriots.
Like them, it’s a good idea to keep your brows angular to contract the roundness.
Angular brows add definition and an angular brow can help to define brow structure where it may be lacking.
IF YOU HAVE A HEART-SHAPED FACE
Those with heart-shaped faces can claim sisterhood with the Olsen Twins, Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, and Halle Berry, among others.
Keeping your brows groomed and under control, but not bushy is the key to enhancing a heart-shaped face.
This means going against the bold, bushy brow trend which is becoming more and more popular, however not all trends were meant for all people, however, be careful not to go too far in the other direction, leaving you with brows that are too thin.
A petite jawline means the emphasis is already on the upper half of the face, so you’ll want to create a shape that will add balance to the smaller chin and jawline.
IF YOU HAVE A SQUARE FACE
If you have a square-shaped face, you’ll want to aim for softly rounded brows, to contrast the angular look that a square-jaw creates.
Avoid angular brows, and be careful not to over-pluck or make your brows too round, which can lead to “rainbow brows”.
Celebrities with square faces include Rihanna, Natalie Portman, Lady Gaga, and Demi Moore
IF YOU HAVE AN OVAL FACE
Oval face shape is well-proportioned and works best with a classic, balanced brow.
For brow inspiration, look to women like Salma Hayek, Tina Fey, Julianne Moore, Jessica Alba, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
IF YOU HAVE A LONG FACE
A long face means that your features are vertically stretched out, so you can extend the tails of your brows across your face to enhance horizontal features.
The tail of the brow should extend past the corner of the eye, however going too far can cause the eye to appear droopy.
Victoria Beckham, Raquel Welch, Carrie Underwood, Courteney Cox, and Liv Tyler all have long faces too.
