If we know one thing to be true in today’s day and age of makeup trends it’s that, above all else, eyebrows stand center stage. From instantly framing your face to being the ultimate finishing touch—or even standing on their own altogether to complete your makeup look—brows have a way of tying everything together. Which is why we’re sharing how to find the right brow shape for your face as well as how to pick out the right eyebrow makeup product to style your brows.
First and foremost, it’s important to realize that like jeans, shoes, and the perfectly complementary shade of red lipstick, not every eyebrow shape will flatter every face. From accentuating your facial structure to framing your well-manicured smoky eye, a tailored set of brows can make or break your look. Below, find out what type of brow shape will work best with your facial features.
If you have a square face…gently curved brows are ideal. This brow shape works for more angular facial structures because they can help soften your facial features.
If you have a round face…angular brows are your best bet. The same way curved brows offer the perfect contrast to a square face, angular brows are best for round face shapes. When your brows have just enough of a strictly styled arch, they can lend to the illusion of a more defined bone structure—which is nothing short of eye-catching.
If you have a heart-shaped face…well-groomed brows are the way to go. This face shape is characterized by a wider forehead followed by narrower jaw. Since your forehead is a bit more expansive, the last thing you want to do is try to rock an ultra-thick brow. Instead, head to the salon or pick up a pair of tweezers to create a well-groomed, not too-thin arch. Be sure to only pluck from the underside of your brow to keep the top of your arch in tip-top shape.
If you have a long face…slightly extended brows will look awesome on you. If you feel like your facial features are a tad elongated, slightly extended brows can create a new focal point. When you style your brows past the ends of your eyes, instead of focusing on the vertical span of your features, eyes will be drawn to your horizontal characteristics.
Now that you know which brow shape is right for your face, it’s time to find the best eyebrow makeup to achieve your sought-out look. To save you some time, we’ve rounded up our best eyebrow makeup options. Get ready to create brows that look show-stopping with one (or more!) of the following eyebrow makeup definers.
For gently curved brows...try the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender. Looking for a little added brow color without any harsh angles? This soft, creamy brow definer crayon glides on smoothly to create a soft brow shape. After filling in your brows, flip the crayon and use the kabuki brush to blend for a softer, more natural-looking finish.
For angular, sculpted brows…try the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Frame & Set. In search of super-styled brows? This creamy brow definer comes in the form of a pomade and designer double-ended brow brush and spoolie that work together to create the perfectly manicured brow shape you’re trying to achieve. The lightweight formula glides on smoothly to fill in brows for a look that lasts. Plus, it’s available in four hues: light brunette, blonde, warm brunette, and deep brunette.
For well-groomed, slim brows…try the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil. In need of some extra shaping support? This triangular tip eyebrow pencil precisely outlines, easily shades, and evenly fills in brows. Use the soft spoolie for extra blending definition.
For soft, slightly extended brows…try the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set. Designed with a precise angled skinny brush to style brow hairs, this gel mousse formula easily glides onto brows to boost volume and set for a natural to thicker look. Use the angled skinny brush in short, upward strokes to boost volume and build to your desired intensity and shape. Then use the gel mousse formula to set your brows.
