The Most Suitable Eyebrow Shapes For the Face

The Most Suitable Eyebrow Shapes For the Face
By Karen Caruso

Eyebrows are an important feature of the face because they give the face its shape and frame the facial features of eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and chin. The eyebrows are one of the few facial features that can be shaped to enhance the beauty of the face.

To achieve the most flattering effect it is important to consider both face shape and eye types. The perfect eyebrow shape is closely related to the actual shape of the face. The basic eyebrow shape is also determined on the bone structure of the face. Below are descriptions and illustrations of eyebrow shapes which are most appropriate for different shaped faces.

Oval – A perfectly balanced face shape

Round – Well-rounded full cheek and chin area; face length is relatively short

Oblong – Longer than wide; face has same width across the forehead, jaw line, and cheekbone

Square – Width of the cheeks and forehead are similar; width of the jaw line and forehead being alike as well

Heart – Fuller and wider at the forehead tapering down to the cheeks then down to a pointed chin

Diamond – Widest at the cheekbones and equally narrow at the forehead and jaw line

Discover the Shape of the Face

OVAL Face Shape

The oval frame is considered to be the perfectly balanced face; the top half balances the bottom half. The oval face is characterized by being slightly wider at the cheekbones than the forehead or jaw-line. It also appears slightly wider at the cheek-line and tapers slightly to the chin.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for an Oval Face

Oval face shapes can get away with just about any eyebrow shape. Oval is the ideal face shape and any natural shape of the eyebrow works well with an oval face. Oval is the perfect model frame.

ROUND Face Shape

The round frame has a large-curved forehead with a rounded chin, thus making the face look full with very few angles. The cheekbones are undoubtedly wider than the eyebrow bone and jaw line. When measuring a round face there is little difference between the width of the face and the vertical measurement. The face is almost as wide as it is long.

Objective Proportion – Create more definition. Flatter your round frame by creating an oval appearance that will lift the facial features and lengthen the face shape to give an image of a thinner look.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for a Round Face

Apply an eyebrow line that goes up the face by arching the eyebrow high and leaving the tapering part small. The center of the arch should move out towards the end of the eyebrow while the end should be short. A high arched eyebrow shape will draw attention away from the width of the face.

OBLONG Face Shape

The oblong frame is longer than it is wide and close to the same width across the forehead, jaw line and cheekbone. The oblong shape may have a very narrow chin or a very high forehead. Having a prominent chin also characterizes an elongated appearance.

Objective Proportion -Have the oblong face appear shorter and broader.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for an Oblong Face

To make a long face appear oval one should apply horizontal lines to the face. Apply an eyebrow line that is flat and keep the arch low; this stops the eye from going up the face. A flat eyebrow opens the eyes horizontally to give the appearance of an oval face. This eyebrow shape will draw the eye from side to side and stop it from going up and down.

SQUARE Face Shape

The square frame has a broad forehead and jaw line and tends to have sharper angles in the corners of the face. The width of your cheeks and forehead will be similar. The width of your jaw line and forehead may also be similar, thus giving an angular overall appearance with the rectangular face being longer than it is wide.

Objective Proportion – Create an illusion of length. Soften the angles giving the illusion that both the forehead and jaw line appear narrower.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for a Square Face

A thick eyebrow is best suited for a square frame face with a strong jaw line. The peak of the eyebrow is most effective when positioned exactly above the square of the jaw. This eyebrow shape will balance out the square appearance of the face and soften the facial contours.

HEART Face Shape

The heart frame is fuller and wider at the forehead tapering down to the cheeks, then down to a narrow and pointed chin. The jaw line on this facial shape is not usually prominent. This facial frame has a narrow chin that leads up to a broad forehead and the cheekbones are very visible.

Objective Proportion – Create an illusion of a narrower forehead and fuller jaw line. Diminish the width at the forehead and create a wider, fuller jaw effect of the face.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for a Heart Face

Rounding the eyebrows with softer peaks is best suited for a heart shape face. A rounded shape helps by adding curves to soften the face plus emphasizes the lovely heart shape.

DIAMOND Face Shape

The diamond frame is a cross between a heart and dramatic oval shaped face. It is widest at the cheekbones and narrow equally at the forehead and jaw line. The face is highly angular with a short forehead and being widest at the temples. The cheekbone is clearly wider than the forehead and jaw line.

Objective Proportion – Create an illusion to reduce the width around the cheekbone line.

Perfect Eyebrow Shape for a Diamond Face

There are two suitable shapes; rounding the eyebrows will soften the angular face or keep emphasis on the center arch of the eyebrow to balance the width of the face or a peaked eyebrow will help narrow the width of the distinctive diamond wide face.

Stay Warm and Cozy in a Ladies Winter Coat!

It is not cool to look hot but freeze your butt off while doing so! Winter coats are often over looked. I know for awhile…I had maybe 3 coats. A full length coat for dressier affairs, a slightly shorter version or the full length coat and a jacket. These coats always seemed to be black. I felt that with black I was safe pairing it with anything I wore.

Boy was I wrong! Coats are available in an assortment of lengths, materials, styles and cuts! If you are decked out in a winter white pants suit, you may not want to pair that with a black pea coat. Nah! Instead, you would complete your look with a full length winter white wool coat!
