Shaping your Eyebrows; Part 2

Last week I wrote a how to on concealing your male eyebrows for those that cannot wax or pluck. This week I thought it would be useful to show you some different shape eyebrows and how to choose one that will compliment the shape of your face. After you cover up your eyebrows you then have a clean canvas to work with, where you can draw in your ideal eyebrows.

 Find what face shape you are below to see what type of brow you should be creating. 



Oval: If you have an oval face you want your eyebrows to be on the thinner side with a softer angle. Oval face shapes do have the most flexibility when it comes to your eyebrows but a softer, less dramatic arch will work the best for you. 

Long: If your face is long you want your eyebrows to give the illusion of a shorter face. In order to do this you want less of an arch and more of a flat eye brow shape.   

Round: For round faces you want a higher more dramatic arch to elongate your face. 

Square: Square faces have a prominent jaw bone and curves,  so you want your eye brow shape to balance out your jaw. You don't want your brow shape to be too angular but also want to avoid it being to round. Go with a softer angle to soften your jawline. 

Heart: Like the square face, heart faces also have strong curve so you want to soften the face with rounded eyebrows. Create a softer angle to soften the strong curvature of your face. 

Diamond: Diamond faces are the widest at the temples and cheek bones. To soften the face and make it appear less wide you want to create a curved eyebrow. 


Creating an Arch

No matter which eyebrow shape you are going for it is important to know how to create an arch. 

For your right brow, place your pencil on the right side of the nostril, using it as a ruler to see where you will start your brow. The start of your brow should line up with the tip of your nostril. 

To create the arch, take your pencil and place it at the tip of your nostril again, but instead of going straight up you want to go diagonal. passing through your pupil. This is illustrated below where it says B. 

The end of your brow should line up with the end of your eye. As you can see in illustration C, you again want to use your pencil as a ruler to line up your nostril and the end of your eye to where you should stop your eye brow. 



Creating the perfect eyebrows takes time and patience, it is not something that will be perfected immediately. If you are new at this, it will help to schedule a professional makeover and have the makeup artist walk you through how to create your eyebrows. After watching them, you will have a better idea of where to start and will have more confidence in doing so. If you are not located near to a facility that has a makeup artist who specializes in CD/TG's then look for simple solutions like the Affordable Eyebrow Stencil Kit that includes different shaped stencils and color to re-shape your brow easily.
