Eyebrows are unique to every person—think of them as the fingerprints of the beauty world. Even on an individual face, brows can vary; as Abbi says in Broad City, eyebrows are often "sisters, not twins." Since every pair of brows has their own unique personality, there’s no one way to get the perfect shape.

Figuring out how to get the perfect brows for you all comes down to your face shape. Eyebrows can complement and balance out the angles and curves of your face, whether you’re an oval, square, diamond, or heart-shaped gal. These tips will help you discover the perfect brows for your face shape, maintain them, and find the right products to keep your brows looking bomb every day.
 

Heart-Shaped Faces Should Stick With Rounded Brows

Heart-shaped faces are characterized by cheeks that are wider than the hairline, with a narrow and pointed chin as well as a widow's peak. If you need a celebrity visual, think Ruby Rose or Scarlett Johanssen. With these features, it's best to keep your brows rounded. The roundness of your brows will match the heart-shaped curves of your face perfectly!

Round Faces Should Create Angles

If your face is just as wide as it is long and you have a rounded jawline and chin, then your face shape is considered round, just like supermodel Chrissy Teigen. The goal with your brows, then, is to add some angles to your face. Opt for an sharp, arched shape that gives your look a little lift. 

Soft Arches Work Well For Oval Faces

Oval faces are shaped like an upside down egg—they're a little longer than they are wide, with a rounded point at the chin. If this is your face shape, make like your celebrity twin Jessica Alba and sculpt your brows into soft arches. You don't have to make the arch particularly sharp or dramatic—just a little lift will add some nice angles to your forehead.

Square Faces Benefit From A Soft, Rounded Brow

To find out if you have a square face, take a look at the length and width of your face. Are they about the same? If so, and you have a strong, angled jawline, then you're a classic square. Since your face is all angles, you can soften your look with a rounded brow. Don't worry about defining an arch—just opt for a natural, smooth shape.
