A fuller eyebrow with a wider, more defined and higher brow arch helps to make the face look slimmer and more lifted. An elongated brow can make you look lost, while a round eyebrow shape emphasises the roundness.
Go for full brows with a wider and soft, curved arch to help soften an angular jawline.

Said to be the ideal face shape, any brow shape goes here, though soft-angled, curved brows look best.
Makeup artist Larry Yeo says: “If you have a skinny, oval-shaped face, you can also go with the straight and thick brows spotted by the Korean celebrities.” If your face shape is anything but oval, “straight brows will make your face look wider”, adds Larry.
Opt for a rounder brow with high arches to soften the sharp angles at your jawline and chin.
The goal is to create the illusion of a shorter face and you can do this by creating a straighter brow with minimal arch.
