The shape of your face plays a huge role in determining how your permanent eyebrows should be shaped. The right shape of microbladed brows can make your eyes appear more open, accentuate your best features, and even take years off your look. The wrong shape, on the other hand, will not do your facial features justice.

There are many different face shapes, and it is quick and easy to figure out which one resembles yours most. From there, you can get a great idea of how changing your brow shape can change your overall look.

Square faces typically have strong jaw lines and prominent angles. With that being said, it is best to avoid any overly angular eyebrow shapes, which can make a square face look too harsh. A soft shape will frame your angular features nicely, directing attention to your temple area and highly sought after cheekbones.

Round faces need a little assistance to create definition and balance out the face, which is where eyebrow shape comes into play. Creating a brow shape that is angular toward the tail of the brow will highlight the cheekbones and widen the eye area, creating nice balanced angles.

Long faces have features that are naturally stretched vertically. Eyebrow shape can be used to counteract the length of your features, by adding the illusion of width. Flat, straight across brows with extended tails are great for highlighting and exaggerating the areas around the eyes and the cheeks, adding to the overall balance of your facial structure.

Heart-shaped faces are wider from the cheeks up, with very delicate jaw lines. Because the top half of the face is more prominent than the bottom, overly thick eyebrows will do your delicate jawline no favors. While you never want very thin brows, a neatly groomed, soft arched brow will help you put your best face forward by balancing out your chin and jawline.

Oval faces are the most balanced of all the shapes. A well-balanced, slightly arched brow is perfect for oval faces. The head of the brow should align with the outer bridge of the nose, while the tail should extend slightly beyond the outer corner of the eye. If you have an oval face, but a slightly smaller or larger nose, you can adjust where the head of the brow begins to change the appearance of your nose.

A professional can help you achieve the perfect brow look for your face. If you think your face would benefit from completely changing brow shapes, consult a professional and keep in mind that it may take several grooming sessions to achieve your desired look, though the end result will be well worth it!

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible. If you’re ready to take the next step toward perfect brows, visit
