The correct shape of the eyebrows: the main types
Eyebrow architecture is a whole complex of actions aimed at creating perfect eyebrows. Where to begin? Definitely with choosing the right shape!
Thanks to idols and K-pop, straight eyebrows are one of the trends of recent years. True, they are not suitable for everyone. This shape looks best on girls with an oval face. Another important nuance: if by nature your eyebrows have a different shape, it will be difficult to “straighten” them at home.
A soft arch with a slight curve is considered the most natural form. No sharp corners or breaks! There are two main dangers: a too rounded arch will give the face a surprised expression, and a low “tail” of the eyebrow can make it sad.
Eyebrows with a kink
The most “fatal” eyebrows! They can give the face a bold and even arrogant expression. To prevent this from happening, do not overdo it with the degree of the corner and correctly determine the place of the break according to the diagram at the end of the article.
Let’s reveal another important secret: eyebrows with a kink are not very popular now.
Curved eyebrows – the arithmetic mean between arched and kinked eyebrows. Fairly straight at the bridge of the nose, closer to the temples they are smoothly rounded.
How to choose the shape of the eyebrows according to the type of face
How do you know which eyebrow shape suits you? First of all, take a closer look at the “clues” that nature has left. The natural shape of the eyebrows and the oval of the face can be a better guide than the dictatorship of trends.
In addition, by choosing the right eyebrow shape for the type of face, you can slightly adjust its features and proportions.
In the stop list, definitely eyebrows with a kink! Straight or curved will look much better. Try not to round your brow too much, as this can make a thin face look even longer.
In the case of eyebrows, the rule of contrast works perfectly: if the face is angular, they should have a rounded shape. Medium thickness and long ponytails will help to slightly expand the upper part of the face and divert attention from the heavy chin.
Round on round is not the best combination, but eyebrows with a slight kink and a sharp tail will add missing sharpness to the face.
As with a rectangular face, avoid straight lines. To visually stretch your face slightly, you can try rounded arched eyebrows of medium width. It is better to lower the “tail” down: this way the face will appear narrower.
In the proportions of a “triangular” face, the forehead always dominates, so it is better to refuse thick straight eyebrows (the upper part of the face will seem even wider). The ideal option is arched or curved eyebrows, it is possible with raised “tails”.
Diamond shaped face
Angled cheekbones and chin can be softened with rounded eyebrows of medium width. Too wide eyebrows make the look heavy.
How to choose the shape of the eyebrows for different types of eyes
To choose “your” eyebrow shape, consider the distance between the eyes. This detail of appearance is also important. And it also lends itself to a little correction!
The eyes are considered close-set if the distance between them is less than their width. Long eyebrows will help visually “push apart” them: arched, wide enough, with a soft bend. Try slightly increasing the distance between them.
Accordingly, wide-set eyes are called, the distance between which is greater than their width. To narrow it, you can slightly shift the eyebrows to the bridge of the nose.
The correct proportions of the shape and size of the eyebrows: step by step instructions
Following the rule of the “golden section”, determine where the eyebrows start, the top point (the place of the bend) and the tip.
- Place the pencil on the wing of the nose to make a straight vertical line. Mark the beginning of the eyebrow.
- Look straight ahead and turn the pencil so that it passes over the edge of the iris. Where the pencil intersects with the eyebrow, there should be a bend.
- Without lifting the tip of the pencil from the wing of the nose, slightly lower it so that it crosses the outer corner of the eye. The mission “to find the point where the eyebrow should end” is completed!
Repeat the procedure for the second eye. This will help not only to figure out how to choose the right shape for the eyebrows, but also make them symmetrical.
