  1. [Eyebrows for a round face] should be raised higher, but do not give them a strong, pronounced kink. A high arc with a slightly lowered tip will emphasize the softness of the outlines and will not contrast with the image.

  2. The oval face will be given charm by eyebrows of straight outlines, almost without lifting, lying horizontally.

  3. Triangular faces are not so frequent, but here you should avoid a straight line, a rather low, restrained arc.

  4. For a heart-shaped face, the eyebrow pattern is simple โ€“ short, thick straight. Lengthening will only emphasize the contrast between the lower and upper parts of the face.

  5. The oval face corresponds to eyebrows short, thick and straight. Softness and roundness will give a not very pronounced, slightly curved tail.

  6. Eyebrows of a rounded shape, but without a strongly emphasized arc, will suit a square face. Usually in people with this shape of the face, the eyes are located far away, and eyebrows closer to the bridge of the nose will help to correct this.
