Armed with a brush, pencil and tweezers, we learnt how to map out our eyebrows. Your face also tells you something about the right 'angle' your eyebrows should take. We are going to listen to these suggestions...

The right eyebrow is essential to give depth to your expression as well as balance. Find how the perfect brow shape balances every face and can even correct it.
Square, heart, oval or round. As beautiful as your natural face is, we know you secretly wish to sharpen those cheekbones or soften your jawline. Here again, the right eyebrow will do the trick. Every face shape has a perfect eyebrow match. To find it, seat straight in front of your mirror - again - and look at your 'oval'. Your face might not be a perfect oval, so follow our guide to find the eyebrow shape that can create harmony.
If you have an oval-shaped face, your lines are symmetric and balanced. Your eyebrows should have a slight arch and a softer shape. There is not so much work to do. Just remember to start and end them at an equal level.
If you notice that your face has almost the same width and length, then your face is round. To sharpen and lengthen your oval, opt for a lifted arch.
The main feature of a square face is a defined and angular jawline. The width and length are almost the same. Lift your eyebrows with a defined yet soft arch by keeping the body of your eyebrows fuller and natural-looking.

In this type of face, the length is prominent, almost double the width. To give more space and breathe to a long face, elongate your eyebrow and keep the arch low.
A rectangle face is long but has a more defined, squared jawline. Focus on the body with full and natural eyebrows with a soft curve.
If you have a diamond face, your forehead is short, and your contours are well-sculpted with high cheekbones and a pointed chin. Make your face more delicate, choose softer and rounded eyebrows.
If your forehead is narrow, but your jawline is strong, then you have a triangular face. Here as well, it is all a matter of adding sweetness: your best-friend eyebrows should have a low, curved arch and a full body.
If your forehead is larger than your jawline and your chin is pointed, you likely have a heart-shaped face. Keep your eyebrows straight and a rounded arch without playing too much with your pencil. Do not over-change this shape.
You can also take celebrities with a similar face shape as an example to style your eyebrows. This beauty task is a fine game of balance.
