How to find your perfect brow shape

How to find your perfect brow shape

Let's talk brows. They frame your face, lift your features, and, basically, dictate your entire vibe. The perfect brow shape isn't a one-size-fits-all deal. It's about finding what complements your unique features. Forget chasing trends – we're here to achieve brow enlightenment, not just the next viral look.

Step 1: Find your face shape

First things first, understand what you’re working with. Here's a quick rundown of brow goals based on your face:


Like Zendaya, you have a wide forehead and sharp chin. Opt for full and fluffy brows to balance your jawline.


Is your jawline square like Kylie Jenner's? Go for brows with a defined arch or slight curve to soften your face. 


Is your face as wide as it is long? Just like Selena Gomez’s, high-arched brows will elongate your face.


Do you have a longer face, similar to Gigi Hadid? Laminated brows add width and break up features with their sleek, brushed-up look.


Straight brows with a slight angle create a modern, sophisticated look that flatters longer faces. Think Victoria Beckham's cool, edgy vibe with slightly thinner brows.


So, you have a high forehead and long jaw? Rounder brows will add a nice curve to your features like Kim K.

Step 2: Brow mapping

Brow mapping is a way of figuring out where your brows should ideally start, arch, and end. Here's the lowdown:

  1. Starting point: Hold a pencil along the side of your nose. Now angle 
  2. it from your nose to your inner eye.
  3. Arch: Pivot the pencil through your pupil to meet your brow.
  4. Tail: Angle the pencil from your nose to your outer eye.

If this step feels too high-stakes, it’s worth consulting a specialist like the experts at Brow Theory.

Step 3: Embrace your natural brows

Remember, the goal is to enhance your natural beauty, not completely reshape your face. If you are going to experiment with a different shape, use brow tweezers sparingly to remove any strays outside your mapped area. And for the love of all things fluffy, avoid over-plucking.

Remember, brows are a journey, not a destination. Experiment, find what works for you, and don't be afraid to rock a bold brow if that's your vibe. After all, confidence is the ultimate brow accessory.
