  • Eye Shape: Eye Shape Try higher arches for hooded eyes and softer arches for deep-set eyes.
  • Eyebrow Thickness: Eye Shape Opt for thick and longer eyebrows for a structured jawline and thin, short eyebrows to make your face appear longer.
  • Pencil Color: Eye Shape For light hair, match the pencil color to the base tone of your hair. For dark hair, pick a dark brown shade, and for red hair, pick ashy shades of the darkest shade of your hair.

How to Identify A Square Face?

Square faces usually have the same width at their jaw and fore head with sharp square jaw line. This means that there is a harsh square jaw line on the face which makes it look broader than usual. A round face also has the same width as the forehead and the jaw. But in the case of a round face there are no strong angular features and the chin is not pointed. Whereas for a square face the chin is pointed.

Square faces usually have a very prominent jaw line and pointed chin. Also they usually have a high forehead. But this can be quickly fixed with the help of a few tricks and tips.  Here we discuss some eyebrow shapes for square face which would look great upon square faced beauties without making their face looking broader.

Eyebrows For Square Face:

We suggest three eyebrow shapes for square face which usually look flattering. These shapes would work great on them without making their face look broader: See the picture above for the reference.

1. Angled Eyebrow Shape:

There are two angled brow shapes ─ soft and hard angled. The soft angled shape has soft curves and peaks. The shape can have low, medium and high arches. High arches slim down the face. The hard angled brow shape would make your face appear young. This shape makes the face appear long. So, people with short faces can try them. Yet, this shape would create a harsh look on a few.

How To Achieve This Shape?

The soft and hard angled brow shapes make the face look delicate. The shape is straight and then curves gently around the top and down the corners of the eyebrows.

A highly angled eyebrow helps to soften the sharp angles of a square-shaped face. However, avoid taking the end of the eyebrow too low as it may bring the eye shape downwards.

2. Curved Eyebrow Shape:

The curved eyebrow shape is also called S shaped. This shape is slightly similar to the soft angled brow shape. It generally makes the face look longer than usual. The shape begins with a slight curved line, and is rounded at the angle of the brow. It is a blend of a curve and an angle. The shape makes the brow resemble the alphabet letter ‘S’. So, the shape is called S shaped.

How To Achieve This Shape?

The S brow shape has a medium to high arch. A slight curve should be created for this shape. The brows should be kept straight towards the nose to create the curve. This shape goes perfectly well on a square-shaped face. The soft, curved shape balances square facial features. Create a gentle arch to add definition without overwhelming your eyes. Avoid overly angular shapes as they can emphasize squareness. Soft, natural brows are more likely to complement this face shape.

Curved eyebrows are a perfect fit for anyone who does not want too much softness to their features.

3. Soft Angled Eyebrow Shape:

The soft angled brow shape is a well-defined one, but it is kept rounded at the beginning. The angles are soft, and not too sharp. You can have low, medium and high arches, as per your preferences. You can also have a thin or thick angled brow shape. For a dramatic look, choose a high-angled brow shape. However, a soft angled shape with small arches is considered the best. This shape adds more femininity to your face. Choose a thick eyebrow shape for a square face, if you have strong cheekbones to complement your face structure. It is best to avoid high or sharp angles for your brows.

Justine, a YouTuber, documents a guide on eyebrow shapes based on various face types. For a square face, she suggests balancing out a strong jawline and pointed chin by attracting attention towards the upper part of the face. She further adds, “Square face, I think, can really get away with super thick brows, which are totally on trend at the moment: think Cara Delevigne. She has an angular jawline as well, she’s a good reference for you if you are looking for an example and you have a square face (i).”

How To Achieve This Shape?

The soft angled shape makes the face look soft and delicate. It also tends to make your face appear long. The shape is straight with soft curves at the top and bottom of the brows. A light color brow pencil or a brow brush can help you to achieve this shape. The brow brush can make the sharp edges soft, and make the brows look natural. This shape would be flattering for square-faced people.

Tip: For a square face with hooded eyes, shape your eyebrows to soften any strong angles and draw attention to the eyes. Create a gentle arch to add curvature to the face. Focus on a slightly thicker brow that may better complement the square structure of the face as well as help define the eyes. Consider creating a gradual arch to uplift hooded eyes.

We also suggest staying away from both the round and the flat eyebrows. Eyebrows for round shaped faces make your face look rounder and the flat ones also add to the roundness.
