All your need to do is troll the Instagram accounts of Australian Makeup Artists like @fernandohernasmua to realise that Beautiful Brows are on trends and here to stay.
Everyone wants the perfect brows, but it isn’t just a case of one-size (or shape) fits all. Does the shape of your face determine what brow shape looks best, and can one shape look better than another? The simple answer is,absolutely. That is why we always say, don’t be a slave to fashionand trends,just wear the best and most flattering shape to create your own superstar looks.
The first step is to establish which face shape you have, this will give you a clear understanding of the best shape that works for you. There are six main face shapes which we discuss below – we offer you pro tips to identify which shape you have, plus highlight which celebrities are a match as a visual guide to create the perfect brow look to compliment your face.
The perfect brow shape will balance your face to achieve a youthful, glamorous and harmonious look. If your brows are uneven or too thin it can make your face look puffy, tired and unbalanced.
Usually has a high forehead, and tapers to a thin jaw and have narrow temples.

Brow For You: You want to envisage your face in 3 even sections, allowing your brow to be full and high into your forehead and follow your natural growth pattern and not be angular and make sure your tail is strong but not too thick for width.
We Recommend: For a prominent brow bone use ‘Taylor’ Brow Guide for smaller bone structure and ‘Kelly ‘ Brow Guide for larger bone structure.

This is where the forehead and cheekbones are wide and the chin tapers to more of a point – like a heart. This is a soft and feminine face shape, which looks naturally beautiful.
