Finding Your Brow Shape
Face shape is just one factor that goes into choosing the right brow shape. Each person’s individual facial features and brow bone structure will help to define the perfect brow shape, rather than just face shape alone. However, natural brows can be accentuated to achieve your dream brows, and get the “World’s Best Brows”!
By using the right brow products, you can achieve any brow look you want! To give a round face a bit more dimension, Christopher Drummond of CD Brows NYC suggests a structured brow with angled arches and longer ends, which will add instant definition and give the illusion of a more oval appearance. “Slimming down a round face can be as simple as extending the length of the brows a few millimeters past their natural shape,” he says. To do this, "use a micro lining pencil like our Skinny Brow Pencil to make a few hair-like flicks at the end of each brow for an uber-believable look.”
An oval face (think Julianne Moore, and Kate Middleton) is what most women are chasing, through contouring and brow design (and hair cut). “For those lucky enough to be born with this face shape, it’s important to make sure you have the appropriate thickness to your brow,” explains Drummond. “Let your facial features be the guide here. If you have larger eyes, a higher forehead, or bigger lips, you want to balance them out with thicker brows.
If your facial features tend to be a bit smaller, then you’ll want to err on the side of a slimmer brow.” The biggest thing to remember about eyebrows is to follow the natural shape of your brow. Don’t try to over-exaggerate your shape, or make it look too different than your brows normally look. By doing this, you risk looking fake or “painted on”.
