Eyebrow Face shape

Tips on how to choose eyebrow shape according to your face!

Rounded, full, thin, gull-winged, you name it! The history of eyebrows has been punctuated by very different trends from the 1920s through the new millennium. If in the last century it was the stars who dictated the principles to follow when it came to make-up, hair and eyebrows, today we are finally talking about customization. In what sense? Beyond what is proposed by models on the runways of the world’s most important fashion shows, what matters is creating the right proportions with one’s face.

We are no longer in the years when to be trendy one had to necessarily follow a particular shape or style, finally, dare we say it! In fact, the study by professionals is directly proportionate to the type of the face and its features, its colors but also the general appearance of the person. This is how the eyebrows are drawn and then made following a very precise pattern, perfectly in line with everyone’s expectations. There are, clearly, different shapes from which to take inspiration: you know, although it is the features that make the difference, what matters is to be able to recognize the shape of one’s face in order to frame it in a certain category, so that you already know what will be the most suitable eyebrow shape! Let’s discover together the various combinations.

Secrets to choosing the perfect eyebrow shape

As mentioned, the eyebrows define the structure of the face, and more specifically of the eyes. Reason why, their shape should be chosen by following very specific rules! For example, in case of a very low forehead, the eyebrows may not be thick, but thinner to increase the depth of the face! So too, a round face will not have to have straight eyebrows because they would spoil the harmony of the features. In short, extreme precision is needed, which is why we will provide you with the right cues so that you do not make mistakes!

How to calculate proportions

Generally, we start from the point of the single eyebrow parallel to the line of the bridge of the nose. You may be wondering, how do you find the right point? Just draw an oblique line starting from the nostril of the nose and crossing the corner of the eye until it touches the eyebrow. The next step, and the most decisive one, is to calculate the highest point of the eyebrow arch. For this, you will need a pencil or brush: looking straight ahead in the mirror, rest them in front of the outer part of the iris. To make sure you have found the point where the eyebrow should end, rest one end of the pencil along the nose and the other toward the temple, so as to form a point of intersection.

Types of eyebrows

After you get the tracks to follow, you only need to fill in or thin your eyebrows according to your taste and features. But how many types of eyebrows are there?

Straight ones are mostly thick and natural, the arch is distinguished by being barely noticeable, and they are generally very long. For this reason, they are perfect for those with elongated faces and/or high foreheads, or to those who have very small eyes and wish to highlight them.


This type of eyebrow is among the most popular because it can recreate a curve above the eye, even if the arch is not well defined. Ideal for softening the marked, angular features typical of a square face, such as a pronounced jawline.


Beautiful to reproduce on those with a heart-shaped face: the arch of the eyebrows is well defined but in a very soft way, so as to reproduce a super natural effect. Perfect with a slightly pointed chin and prominent cheekbones, but they also match those with a diamond face shape.

Sharply arched

The classic gull-wing eyebrows are made with a sharper, more subtle curve than the soft shape. They marvelously marry the round visa shape because they optically lengthen the face so that it appears less plump.


More commonly known as S-shaped brows: they stand out because they start at the bottom and then rise at a sharp angle, simulating the lines of a snake. We suggest them for those who want to focus attention on the cheeks and for those who want to enhance small cheekbones.
