Trends come and go, but good brows will never go out of style and that is why we've developed this 'Brows 101 – The Perfect Frame' blog post for you.
At Belle Sorelle, we specialise in giving you your perfect brows. Whether through waxing and tinting, or cosmetic tattoo, we offer complete transformations that not only save you time getting ready in the morning, but also frame your face beautifully.
But how do we do it?
Our stylists are professionally trained to determine what brow shape would best compliment your specific face shape and various facial features. Below are the basic face shapes that give you an insight into what we look for when designing your perfect brow.
Oval: For this shape almost any brow will look good. Although your specific features will play more of a role in determining your perfect brow. If your face is a bit on the longer side it may help to not have your arch too high. Brows should be almost straight-across with minimal arch that's soft and angled. This will bring balance to a longer-shaped face.
Round: Most people with a round face shape tend to want to elongate their face. Don't be afraid of creating a higher angled arch. Half-moon brows can actually make your face appear more round. So lift those arches and give yourself a more youthful and slimmed appearance.
Long: If you have a longer face, giving the brows more of a horizontal, lined shape can help make your face look softer and more rounded. Avoid over-enhancing the arch; otherwise you will give the illusion of an even-longer face. But if you got it, work it girl!
Square: With square face shapes, the jawline is usually the most prominent feature. Focusing on angling the brow at the arch can balance out the jawline and give it a softer edge. Pro tip – for the perfect selfie, show off your sharp brow and defined jaw by angling your face to your preferred side. These are your best features, so show them off!
Diamond: A softly curved eyebrow shape is best for diamond-shaped faces because it will make the widest part of the face (your cheekbones) appear narrower. So shine bright like a diamond and follow the natural curve of your brows when styling them.
Heart: If your forehead tends to be wider and come to a point at your chin, focus on creating a natural, arched brow and slowly adding volume as you go. This way, you'll take more focus off the width of your forehead and your brows will be more in balance with your chin. We heart this trick!
So there you have it, a little insight into how we create your perfect brows.
