Popular eyebrow arching styles and shapes include full brows, straight brows, sharply angled arches and gentle curves. The individual should choose an eyebrow shape that complements her facial structure. For example, longer faces appear more oval with straight brows, while arched brows minimize facial roundness.
Among iconic celebrities, Audrey Hepburn often sported full, upward-tilted brows, while Lauren Bacall preferred a sharp, angled style. Marilyn Monroe had curved brows that accentuated her eyes. Classic brow shapes such as these remain popular today.
To shape brows, use an eyebrow pencil to draw guidelines, placing the arch three-quarters of the way across the brow and tapering the end in a way that complements the eye shape. Pluck stray hairs sparingly to avoid bald patches and other consequences of over-plucking.
