How to Find Your Perfect Brow Shape

Brow trends come and go throughout the years (remember those super skinny '90s brows?) but what truly matters is finding the brow shape that enhances your natural beauty. The key is to choose brow styles that harmonize with your facial features. Discovering the perfect brow shape for your face is a breeze with a few essential guidelines, paired with the right tools and our MaxeyBrow enhancement serum. Get ready to step into a new era of brow perfection!


When it comes to finding the perfect brow shape, a few fundamental principles apply regardless of your facial structure.


Hold a pencil or thin makeup brush against your face to establish the correct brow boundaries:


  • The inner edge of your brow should align with the bridge of your nose.
  • Your brow's arch should peak slightly above the outer edge of your iris, resting on your brow bone.
  • Envision a diagonal line extending from the outer side of your nose to the corner of your eye. This is where your brow's tail should extend to.

Now, let’s dive into complementing your face with the perfect brow shape!


  1. For Round Face Shapes, Try Arched Brows

For those with round faces, a higher arch can work wonders. It elongates the face and introduces a touch of definition that complements your face's softer curves. Achieve this look using your preferred brow-defining pen or pencil. Create delicate, hair-like strokes that form a gentle peak on your brow bone. Finish by brushing your brow hairs upward with a spoolie brush and using a brow gel to sculpt your arch to perfection.

  1. For Oval Face Shapes, Try Straight Brows

To balance an oval face shape, straight brows create the illusion of width, pairing beautifully with longer facial proportions. Use a brow pen, pencil, or gel to fill in your brows and mimic the appearance of natural brow hairs by applying short strokes. If you prefer, you can slightly extend the brows at the ends for added impact.

  1. For Square Face Shapes, Try Soft Brows

For square jawlines, soft and feathery brows without any sharp angles work wonders. Toss aside the pencil, and opt for a tinted brow gel. This will softly define your brows while filling in any sparse areas. Apply it with upward strokes, starting from the inner corners and moving towards the outer edges.

  1. Rounded Arch: Perfect for Heart Face Shapes

If you have a heart-shaped face, which is wider at the forehead and tapering to a point at the chin, a rounded arch is your perfect brow shape. Use a pair of tweezers to tidy up any stray hairs, ensuring your brows boast a natural curve that complements your features.
