All eyebrows are not created equal. Every time you fill in your brows on your own, you end up completely hating how it looks. You set out with all the right tools and intentions but it NEVER comes out how you want them to.

The biggest thing you’re missing is how you’re shaping them. Getting perfect brows is all about taking the natural shape of your eyebrows and then refining them. The brows you’re born with already compliment your face shape, which is why drastic changes don’t always turn out so well.

Get ready to boost your eyebrow game! Use our foolproof guide to get the best eyebrows for your face shape.

If you have a round face like Lily Collins, give your brows a high arch. Adding angles to your brows will make your face more defined. The higher and fuller, the better. Lily Collins always gives us major brow envy with her thick, angular brows.

If you have an oval face shape…

You have a well-proportioned face, so getting perfect brows will be super easy for you! All you have to do is give your brows a slight arch and you’re good to go. Cara Delevingne is the brow queen and pulls off this look effortlessly.

If you have a long face shape…

Because your face has vertical lines and isn’t wide, you can use your brows to broaden your face. Something as simple as extending the tail end of your brows will do the trick! As you’re shaping the tail, make sure it hits past the corner of your eye.

If you have a square face shape…

Slightly rounded brows will add curves to your already defined face. This is the best way to balance out your angular jawline and cheekbones. Just make sure you don’t go overboard with the plucking or your brows will lose their shape!

If you have an inverted triangle face shape…

Give your forehead a narrower appearance by making your brows longer. The best way to do this is by using brow filler (or eyeshadow!) to lengthen where your brow starts. If you want a longer look, slightly extend the tail end of your brow.

If you have a heart face shape…

You’ll want to go for a subtle, well-groomed look like Julianne Hough’s brows. This will balance out your smaller jawline and make your face look more proportionate.

If you have a diamond face shape…

Go for curved brows to soften your sharp facial features. This has the added bonus of making your cheekbones appear slimmer.

If you have a pear face shape…

The key to perfect eyebrows is creating more angles on your face. Use full, arched brows to balance out your narrow forehead and wider jawline.
