How to Find the Perfect Shape of Eyebrows for You

Eyebrows are a very important part of a person’s face. They are so powerful that they can change the whole facial expression. By shaping them properly, you can look younger, more attractive and your eyes will look more open. So, choosing the correct shape that will fit your face perfectly is very important, and here is how to do it. 

Choosing the Shape

Visiting a professional is probably the easiest and safest way of choosing the right eyebrow shape. If there are any good eyebrow technicians in your area, visit them to shape and style your brows correctly and according to the shape and structure of your face. After that, you just follow what they had done and pluck new eyebrow hairs to keep the shape.

After a while, however, your eyebrows may lose shape and you will have to revisit the brow technician. If this is too complicated, keep reading to find out how to do it on your own.

Shaping Sparse Eyebrows?

Sparse, thin brows are hard to shape because they lack hair strokes. So, there are other options to make your eyebrows look on point. You can dye your eyebrows, which will make them look fuller, but this only lasts around three weeks. If you are looking for a more permanent solution, you can choose microblading. According to PhiBrows Canada microblading trainer, this treatment is very high in demand and more and more people are choosing it.

Microblading is a form of a semi-permanent brow tattoo that adds additional hair strokes thus filling the gaps in your eyebrows and making them look fuller and denser. Big, prominent brows are super trendy at the moment, so if you follow the trends, microblading is the thing for you.  

How To Find the Best Eyebrow Shape, Based on Your Face Shape? 

Every face shape requires a different brow style. Here are recommendations by makeup artists:

Oval face shape

This face shape is the most common. To balance your facial features, go for natural, soft-angled brows, just like Jessica Alba’s brows. But basically, any brow style will complement this shape of the face. 

Long face

With this shape, eyebrows should provide width. Therefore, the arches shouldn’t be very prominent and high. The best brow style, in this case, is straight brows, which will visually shorten the face. So, lower the arch, and go for more straight brows that are longer and it will be perfect. You can also “Purchase a Henna Brows Kit and Enhance your Eyebrows For the Perfect Eyebrow Shape”

Round face 

A more round face needs brows that can make it look longer. This can be achieved with a higher and slightly darker arch. Your face will look longer and slimmer, your eyes more open and your cheekbones higher. It is not a good idea to make your eyebrows too thick, if you have a round face, because it will make it look even smaller. 

Square face 

Your eyebrows should make the jawline look less prominent if you fall into this category. So, the best way to treat and reshape your brows is to avoid a sharp arch and go for slightly angled brows. Also, avoid thin eyebrows and choose a bold brow style, just like Keira Knightley.

Heart-shaped face

In this case, you should avoid high arches and go for a soft, rounded arch and straighter brows, to balance the facial features. Also, try not to make them too thick or too thin to get the best shape and results.  

How to Determine the Shape of Your Face

If you are unsure of what shape of face you have, there are some easy steps to find out. First, you should measure your face for length with a ruler. Then, simply divide the total length of the face by 3 and measure the length of your face from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. Longer faces usually get results of the last number being larger than the first one. For round ones, the last number is smaller than the first, and oval faces have those two measures that match.

For some people, the shape of the face is more prominent, but with so many shapes that exist, it is often hard to immediately recognize yours. That is why you can always measure your face yourself, compare it with pictures, or visit a professional that you trust to help you. With all that done, it will be easier than ever to find the right shape of eyebrows for your face. And maybe your natural eyebrow shape is the best solution, just build on their style and thickness.


Eyebrows that are not the right choice for your facial structure, may change your overall look. That is why you should be careful when deciding to redo your eyebrows. Always follow the guidelines on shaping your eyebrows according to your face shape and you will be fine. Otherwise, you can trust professionals to make those decisions for you.
