The best eyebrow shapes to flatter your face
Like haircuts, eyebrow shapes aren't one-size-fits-all. Your 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.
"The right brow will help open up the entire eye area and work to improve the face's overall symmetry," says celebrity eyebrow stylist Joey Healy (Kyra Sedgwick is a client). "The perfect brow will make you look fresh, rested, young, healthy, and overall, more attractive." Do we have your attention yet?
So how do you go about achieving this Holy Grail of facial features? For starters, your unique face shape plays a role in determining which eyebrow shape works best for you. We asked Healy to break down the best brows for a range of different face shapes, so you can find your own golden arches.
All Face Shapes
No matter what face shape you have, there are three golden rules to follow when it comes to your brows, according to Healy.
1. The head of the brow should begin at the bridge of your nose. "This point can be easily found by vertically holding a pencil up to either side of your nose bone."
2. The arch of your eyebrows should be about two-thirds of the way out, Healy says. "One of the biggest mistakes I see day to day is a centered arch. This gives the dreaded 'rainbow' shape!"
3. Don't cut your brows short. "The tail should, at the very least, end on an imaginary line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the eye," Healy says. "You can allow it to extend slightly further as long as that tail doesn't end lower than where the head begins (this can make the eyes look droopy). Make sure your tails always taper to a crisp point to best lift the eye."
