Most redheads have extremely light blonde eyebrows that are almost invisible. This means we need a lot of guidance, especially when it comes to eyebrow shape. If you’re a redhead discovering the world of brows for the first time, you might be wondering what a good brown shape is for you. After all, there are so many eyebrow shapes. What is best for you? Here are a few tips and tricks:
Step 1: Know your face shape
Your natural brow shape and your face shape is extremely important to keep in mind. You can only alter the shape so much before it looks forced. Try incorporating your natural shape with the shape that looks best for your features. If your desired brow shape doesn’t match your natural shape, try training your brows by slowly shaping them overtime for a less drastic look.
If your face shape is round, go for a higher arched brow to create dimension.
Think: Emma Stone
If your face shape is oval, go for a soft angled brow to help balance your features.
Think: Amy Adams
If your face shape is square, go for a thick, flat brow with a soft arch.
Think: Sophie Turner
If your face shape is heart, go for a softly rounded brow to counterbalance the sharpness of your lower jaw.
Think: Julianne Moore
If your face shape is diamond, go for a curbed brow without harsh lines to soften the angles of your face.
Think: Bryce Dallas Howard
If your face shape is elongated, go for a long, flat brow to add width to your face and make it more proportional.
Think: Nicole Kidman
Step 2: Seek help from a professional
If you’re looking to change your brow shape, or just have them shaped for the first time it’s best to seek help from a professional. They will be able to help you achieve the shape you want and give you tips on maintaining the shape. You can shape and tint your brows at home, but it will take some practice, so it’s best to get them shaped professionally the first time and then just do the upkeep at home.
