Will it look flattering on your face shape? Read on to find out.

Figuring out the right brow shape can often be a daunting task, with beauty trends constantly changing and redefining our culture of cool. So here's what you should remember: Good eyebrows should lift and flatter your face shape, whether it be Korean-inspired straight brows or Nike-shaped arches.

To learn more about brow shapes and how they can enhance our natural facial features, we consulted brow artist and Strokes Eye Beauty Studio COO Keighty Wong. Keighty has worked on the arches of Bela Padilla, Nadine Lustre, Sofia Andres, and many more. Below, she shares her insights on three different brow styles, plus which face shapes would suit them best:

The Best Brows for Your Face Shape, According to an Expert

According to Keighty, the perfect brows for your face shape is also dependent on your age, facial features, and the vibe that you want to give off. With these in mind, read on to find out the best option for you!


1. Straight Brows

Many Koreans have straight brows because of their preference for a petite face and almond-shaped eyes. It also presents a younger and more youthful look, which is why Korean celebrities such as Song Hye Kyo and Shin Min Ah sport this shape.

According to Keighty, straight brows would look best on those with round and oval faces, while those with square shaped faces might want to avoid it. This is because straight brows will make the angles on square-shaped faces look sharper, when your brows should soften and complement your mug.

2. Arched Brows

Celebrities like Lily Collins, Janine Gutierrez, and Cara Delevingne are known for their arched brows. Like them, you could either opt for a soft, natural arch or a high arch.

Keighty recommends brows with a soft arch for all face shapes, as they help enhance defined jawlines and high cheekbones. On the other hand, brows with high arches are not recommended for square or heart shaped faces as they could look too intense.

3. Rounded Brows

Rounded brows are recommended for those who have oval and round-shaped faces. It gives the face a more mature look, which would be perfect for those who have baby faces! This brow shape also complements Asian faces best since we generally have softer facial features. Though it's no longer a popular brow shape today, it was trendy in the past because of Hollywood stars like Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore.
