Step 2 Picking The Right Shape

So now that you know what your face shape is,let’s move on to what are the eyebrow shapes you should try and you should avoid.

Long Face

If you have a long face, your aim would be to make it look rounder. Avoid the arch eyebrows; It will only make your face longer. Keep your eyebrow shapes flat. Flat eye brows with a slight downward curve or no curve at all, tens to reduce the length of the face making it seem rounder. This is the perfect choice of all the eyebrows shapes for long face.

Oval Face

If owner of oval face, you are lucky. This is considered by many makeup artists as the best face shape. Go for a soft angled look.


You can pick a slight arch to add more dimension to your face but no matter what do not pick dramatic eyebrow shapes. You already have nice a sharpened out features, this only make the face look more sharp and honestly, it will not be a pretty sight at all! 

Square Face:

Squared faced beauties have a square jaw which is a very strong feature. Your jaw and forehead are at the same distance making you seem squarish. You need to adopt a look that will soften your look and even elongate the look of your features a little if your looking for a more feminine look. Try a rounder shape or a low soft arch with medium thickness. You don’t want to go too thin or too thick with this face shape. This will tone down your otherwise strong features. 

Heart Shaped Face:

In heart-shaped face shape, you have a pointed chin. So in order to soften that look, go for a round brow shape. A low arch round brow will give you a natural look, but if you have a shorter heart face shape, then ask your beautician to give your brows a sharp arch. 

Diamond Face:

If your face is shaped like a diamond with stronger and wider cheekbones, soften down the strong features with a curved brow. 

Having the right shape is the definitely a given for good looks but then how good is that going be if we don’t groom our eyebrows well enough? The right thickness and shape make all the difference and for that the right grooming from the right person is a must.
