Over recent years, eyebrows have risen in prominence when it comes to the beauty industry. Gone are the 00s trends of plucking our eyebrows into non-existence; eyebrows are in, and more and more women are coming to understand the importance of good brows to how their face looks.
 
As important as eyebrows are, it's important to remember that eyebrows are incredibly subjective. There's no one style of eyebrow that suits everyone; what works for your friends or favourite celebrity may well not work for you.
 
Different eyebrow shapes
 
To provide some guidance on how to find the perfect eyebrow style for you specifically, you first need to ascertain your face shape. These six primary face shapes are the first port of call when learning to ascertain the eyebrow style that will suit you best. With your face shape in mind, you can then begin to explore which of these styles will work well for you.

    Triangle Face Shape
     
  • Your jawline is wider than your forehead and cheekbones
  • Your chin is square or flat in shape
