- Eyebrows with a kink – suitable for a round face. They balance the proportions, make the face more elongated. A clearly defined break in the eyebrows will also be good for an oval face. And so that the face does not look arrogant, soften the contours of the eyebrows.
- straight eyebrows the head and tip of the eyebrow are on the same level – ideal for an elongated face. They will correct its proportions. In all other cases, straight eyebrows are not the best choice.
