Hello all you beautiful darlings! As we all know everyone is their own unique person - with their their own unique facial structures. Learning how to compliment your natural facial structure is extremely important for your makeup routine. Another important part of our makeup routines is our eyebrow structure. In this week’s blog we are going to talk a little bit about how to shape eyebrows to properly accent round facial structures
But First… Make Sure You Have a Round Face Shape
Let’s start by making sure you have a round face structure. Round faces tend to be soft with non-angular features and full cheeks. It may be the case that you have more of a round face when you carry a little extra weight, but keep in mind that many round-faced women are thin but just carry non-angular features.
If you have a round face, the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal. Perhaps you have soft features in general. The difference between a round face and a square face is the lack of angles.
Eyebrow Shapes for Round Faces
Now, if you do have a round face let’s take a look at your eyebrows. There are six main eyebrow shapes that we generally go by, even though every face is a bit different. Out of the six, only three brow shapes we’d recommend for a round face.
Because of the curviness if your face it is best to stick with hard angled brows or soft angled brows. You can also use S-shape if it works with the frame of your face. You should be careful in shaping your brows, because a wrong shape can ruin your entire look. You need to be sure to choose a brow shape, which would slim down and highlight the features on your round face.
Hard Angled Brows
Round faces lack any sharp edges or bones so applying a hard angle on your brow can help give you more structure. With this shape, you want to brush the eyebrow hairs up towards the forehead. This will pull the arch of the brow up. Be sure to fill your brows in to define the shape even more. Pulling the arch of your brow high upon the brow bone will lengthen out your face and that sharp upper angle will add some edginess to your look.
Soft Angled Brows
If such aggressive angle is too bold of a move for you, take a softer approach. The soft angled brows still thin out the face and are a great fit for round faces.
The shape is straight and curves softly around the top and down corners of the brow. Angled brows provide such a good sophisticated look to faces - especially for round faces. Be sure to fill your brows when changing you shape so that it is noticeable- but not too thick. Unlike the hard angle a soft angled brow can look a bit more natural when it comes to shading.
The final brow shape that works well on a round face is the S-shaped brow. An S-shape is a very unique brow and should be executed carefully. It looks similar to a soft angled brow, but with another curve at the beginning of the brow near the nose.
This look can be very glamorous or cartoonish so be careful if you are attempting this look on your face for the first time. Do not over exaggerate the arch or the fullness, as you are trying to accentuate your natural beauty.
Your eyebrows can be a useful tool when it comes to creating illusions with the shape of your face. We want to create a feeling of a longer, thinner face when you have a round face so sharper and taller brows are the best option. Try to steer clear of flat or curved brows as these only widen the face.
There is no perfect one size fits all eyebrow and you may have to take some time to find which option works best on your face. Remember to also take into consideration your eye shape and how you tend to wear your hair. All of these factors affect your overall look and should flow together. By learning the correct methods and techniques for shaping your eyebrows, you’ll be able to create the most flattering appearance for your face.
