Eyebrows play a very important part in enhancing your eyes and balancing your face. For the longest time, fashions in eyebrow shapes have come and gone.
The thirties saw movie stars with no hair and only a penciled thin brow line. The sixties brought in a heavy un-kept look and women around the world conformed to the latest trends, irrespective of whether the pencil thin look or those bushy brows suit their face shape or not.
The shape and size of the eyebrow should depend solely on the shape of the face and the effect required. Years of endless tweezing, plucking, waxing or threading take a toll on your poor eyebrows and then they do not always grow back to their original hey-day shape or fullness. It is, hence, very important to choose the shape most suitable to your face early on and maintain it throughout one’s lifetime. Here you go and understand the eyebrows shapes for different face types:-
The eyebrows should be shaped almost horizontally and only as far as the outside corner.
e.g. Straight eyebrows
Arched eyebrows are needed to create an illusion of narrowness extending as far out to the cheekbones as possible. The shaping commences immediately above the inner corner of the eye.
e.g. Arched eyebrows
The eyebrows need to be highly-arched on the outside to try and create an oval impression.
e.g. Angular eyebrows
Extra width is needed at the forehead and eyebrows should only be slightly arched, extending low.
This shape requires a low arch.
This shape requires a high arch.
