How to find the best eyebrow shape perfect for your face? It’s not as hard as many folks lead you to believe.
Eyebrows frame the eye, add expression and create structure on the face. Well done eyebrows can even give you the illusion of a more lifted, youthful face. So having the perfect eyebrow shape to balance your features really matters more than you might initially think.

Learning your face shape will actually help you determine the eyebrow shape which will balance out your features. Take a look at this handy chart below to give you some guidance.

Understanding the Basic Shape For Your Eyebrows
The beginning point of your brows should start parallel to the inner corner of the eye. The arch is best placed and most lifting on the outer 2/3 of the eye. Generally that’s right above the outer edge of the iris.
The ending point is very important for completing the frame of the eyes. Typically it’s longer than most women think it will be and rather than curving down it does a gentle slope towards the top or middle of the ear. I go into more detail with a demonstration on this in my eyebrow workshop.
Thicker = Youthful
Your eyebrows can be the key to an instant eye lift and softening of the face.
The “trend” of full brows that showed up on the runway several years ago, hasn’t gone away yet – and likely isn’t any time soon.
You might be tempted to get your eyebrows tattooed or microblading done so you don’t have to worry about it…so you must read this article before you take the permanent plunge!
Of course not everyone has full, thick eyebrows, so you have to work with what mother nature gave you, how your brows may have changed through various life stages, and whatever hair removal damage you may have done in the past.
Women lose thickness in their eyebrow hair as they age, so it’s essential that your eyebrows are well-defined and any “naked” spaces are filled in, creating the illusion of youthfully thicker brows with an eye-opening arch.
That’s why it’s important to learn how to wield a brow pencil or a thin brow brush to create the illusion of fullness and add a modern, flattering shape to your face.
