How to get the perfect brows for your face shape


The ideal shape of your brows has a lot to do with the shape of your face, the positioning of your features, the distance between them and the shape of your eyes. Let’s face it, eyebrow shapes aren’t one-shape-suits-all. Perfect brows depend on the dimensions of your face, and the right arches can not only emphasize your eyes and make you look younger, they can even let you get away with wearing less makeup.

Here are the basic rules to consider when getting your brows done:

No matter what face shape you have, there are three golden rules to follow when it comes to your brows.

1. The head of the brow should begin at the bridge of your nose.

2. The arch of your eyebrows should be about two-thirds of the way out.

3. Don’t cut short the length of your brows. The tail should end on an imaginary line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the eye. Make sure your tail is always narrow to a crisp point to best lift the eye.

If you have a round face then you must go for sharp angular brows. As there is a lack of definition in a rounder face, a perfect angled brow can bring out and define facial bone structure that is lacking.
