The Ideal Eyebrow Shape for You
The Lavoom Brow Studio,
we are experts in semi-permanent eyebrows and eyebrow tinting. Before even considering starting the process, we plan out the shape and style of the client's brows to ensure they are perfectly suited to their face. This means we can visually estimate the outcome and make any necessary changes prior to starting.
How we Measure Your Face Shape
To achieve the ideal eyebrows shape for your face, our brow experts will identify the four sections of the face you will need to determine your face shape:
The main five face shapes are round, square, heart, long and oval. Once you have each measurement, use the following guide to discover your shape:
If your cheekbones and face length holds a similar measurement and then your forehead and jawline also have a similar length, your face shape is round.
All sections of your face hold a similar measurement.
The measurements of your face go from the longest to the shortest in the following order: forehead, cheekbones then jawline, the jawline is generally in a pointed shape.
Your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are a similar shape, but your face length is considerably longer.
If you hold an oval-shaped face, then your face length will be a larger measurement than your cheekbone and your forehead bigger than your jawline.
Eyebrow length is key to perfect eyebrows. After we define your face shape we can then measure your perfect eyebrow length and pinpoint where your arch should peak.
Here is a simple step by step guide that our eyebrow specialist uses to measure your eyebrow shape:
Grab a makeup brush; a thinner, longer brush would work best
Place the brush against the edge of the outside of your nostril and hold it horizontally up
The spot in which the brush touches is the start of your brow
Next sit straight, looking directly into the mirror, measure from the same starting spot, but this time pointing towards your pupil
This is where the highest peak of your brow arch should be places
Lastly, again start from the same spot but point towards the edge of your eye
This is where your eyebrow should end
Measuring The Perfect Eyebrow Length
Match Your Eyebrow Style To Your Face Shape
Now that we have identified your face shape and perfect eyebrow length we need to decide on what style of brows are right for you. The style and shape of your brow are important to compliment your face shape, while enhance your natural beauty and highlight your most prominent, distinct features.
For a round face shape, an angularly shaped eyebrow is best. A higher arch with a solid definition, angled at the corners is the best way to create the appearance of a more noticeable bone structure.
Generally, people who have a square face shape have stronger natural features, so eyebrows should be used to soften up the face. Try to go for a rounder shaped brow with a lower arch and stay away from thicker eyebrows.
Those with a heart-shaped face are thought to possess more feminine, delicate features, so this should be suited to the brow. Go for a soft, round and petite eyebrow with a slight curve to suit the heart shape.
Compliment the theme of longer face shape with flat, straight looking eyebrows. Having a long face shape gives you the opportunity to extend your eyebrows further. however, you do opt to extend your eyebrows, ensure they do not curve at the end as it could cause your eyes to look droopy.
Luckily, if you have an oval face, you are seen as having the most proportioned facial features meaning you can get away with naturally shaped eyebrows without the need for much additional work.
