While eyebrows seem like harmless little patches of hair, in reality they are so much more. Eyebrows alone have the power to transform a face. Their shape accentuates our eyes and compliments the contours of our cheeks.

How to get a perfect eyebrow shape? We’ve got three easy steps for you.
Step 1. Determine the right shape for you
A perfect brow has a certain length – it begins above the inner corner of your eye and ends above the outer corner. Draw imaginary lines and mark the dots using an eye pencil.
Determine the right brow shape for you based on the shape of your face. This is a defining step.
- Round face
Angled eyebrows with high arch and a short end is your best bet. But don’t make the arch overly sharp – this will only emphasize the roundness of your face. Steer clear of curved eyebrows.
- Triangle-shaped face
To compliment your face, go for slightly high eyebrows with a soft curve, medium length. Straight thick eyebrows is not the best choice
- Square face
Choose curved shape, medium length, thicker brows.
Step 2: Fill it in.
Bushy eyebrows are in, so don’t pluck your brows too often. Thick natural eyebrows will make your face look younger and your eyes visually bigger. If you have fine, light hair, fill them in using a gray or brown brow pencil.
Step 3: Choose the right shade.
If you like to experiment with hair color, don’t forget to change your brow color accordingly to complete the look. Emphasize your brows using specifically designed tools, like brow pencil, brow shadow, and styling gel.
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyebrows are the curtains that frame these windows. Be sure to make them nice!
