Eyebrow sculpting - what is the perfect shape of brow for my face?

Like haircuts, eyebrow shapes aren’t one-size-fits-all. Your perfect brows depend on the dimensions of your face, and by going for the right arches, you can take years off, accentuate your best features and wear less make-up elsewhere.

Once, most women would take their mascara as their desert island beauty product, but as the bold brow proves it’s beauty prowess, more of us are dropping lacquered lashes in exchange for defined and strong eyebrows. By choosing the right brow-shape the entire eye area can be opened up and work to improve your face’s symmetry. The perfect brow for you can make you look fresh, rested and healthy.

Sound good to you? Then read on.

But with so many options—thick, thin, arched, straight—how do you know which eyebrows are right for you?

For starters, your unique face shape plays a role in determining which brow shapes will work best for you. We agree with Cynthia Chua, owner of Browhaus salon (based in Asia, NYC and London) who gives her advice on how to get the perfect brow for your face shape.

Square Face: Demi Moore. Bigger is better when it comes to square faces like Demi's. Chua recommends thick eyebrows for this face shape, which is best achieved by waxing or threading. It gives a more natural brow shape as it removes the hair strands in a row, ensuring the result is natural and neat but not overly defined.\

Square Face: Katie Holmes. Since square faces already have a strong appearance, it's best to make your brows complement your face instead of contrasting with it, like Katie Holmes. Chua advises to align the peak of the brow with the widest angle of the jaw to balance out the strong jaw line.

Round Face:Fergie. For those with a round face like Fergie-Ferg, Chua recommends an arched eyebrow to create a more oval look. The high peak opens the eyes vertically to elongate the face.

Long Face: Sarah Jessica Parker. For long faces like SJP's, Chua recommends flat, straight eyebrows.

Heart-Shaped Face: Reese Witherspoon. Reese has the perfect brows for those with a heart-shaped face: a round arch to help soften her pointed chin, says Chua. 

Oval Face:Cameron Diaz. Have an oval-shaped face like Cameron Diaz? You're in luck! Chua says that oval faces can handle most brow types. Because of the proportionate shape, it's easy to pull off a variety of brow shapes.

So there you have it! We all know it’s true: amazing brows can make or break your entire look – so hopefully the above has given you some tips and tricks!
