The face shape looks different in this example:



Here a long face shape looks shorter with a flat eyebrow shape


Is one eyebrow shape better than the other?

The quick answer is yes.


A long face shape can look "too long"
• A flat eyebrow shape shortens the face shape


The Good News

Examples of women with long face shapes who have flat eyebrows:

Sarah Michelle Gellar Jessica Alba Claudia Schiffer Scarlett Johansson Victoria Justice

Note how the celebrities with characteristically long faces below all have a flat eyebrow shape. This creates an optical illusion and makes the face appear shorter, bringing it into balance.

"Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look" - Kevyn Aucoin

There are six basic face shapes:
Oval Face Shape
Round Face Shape
Long Face Shape
Square Face Shape
Heart Face Shape
Diamond Face Shape

Find your Face Shape

Start by pulling your hair back from your face, and look closely in the mirror. The features to look for are:

Oval Face Shape
• Forehead is wider than the chin
• Prominent cheekbones
• Face gracefully tapers to a narrow chin

Round Face Shape
• Face is almost as wide as it is long
• Face is widest at the cheeks

     Long Face Shape
• Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width
• Face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin

Square Face Shape
• Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width
• The squared jawline is the most obvious feature

Heart Face Shape
• Similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point

Diamond Face Shape
•Not as common as the other face shapes
• Typically the face is highly angular
• The forehead is somewhat short and the face is widest at the temples

Find your Face Shape




Step 1: Measure the length of your face with a ruler. (In this case the total length of the face is 8).
Step 2: Divide the total length by 3. (In this case 8 divided by 3 is 2.67).
Step 3: Measure the length from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin. (in this case 2 1/3)
If the last number is larger than the first number, chances are you have a long face.
If the last number is less than the first number, chances are you have a round face.
• If the last number equals the first number, chances are you have an oval face
