If anyone has mastered the art of creating the perfect eyebrow shape at home, we want your secrets. For most of us, it's an ongoing struggle that usually involves over-tweezing a few times and using brow products in the wrong shades. That's why we turned to Kelley Baker, celebrity brow artist and owner of Kelley Baker Brows, for help.

Baker, who counts Khloe Kardashian and Zendaya among her clients, recommends starting slow when you want to try a new shape. "You want to remember that we are always trying to make the brows be a different shape than the face so that the two will go together," she says.

In general, the natural placement of your arches tends to be the most flattering brow shape regardless of your face shape. However, the best brow shape for you will be the one that will make you feel the most confident.

Before reaching for your tweezers, read through Baker's breakdown of the best eyebrow shapes for every face shape. Keep scrolling to find your perfect match.

Baker suggests sticking with a slight arch if you have a round face shape. "This will give this face shape's brow a lift, which will add more definition to the face," she says.

When it comes to your brow shape, think balance. Baker recommends a shape with a high or low arch that has an elongated tail. "This will help balance out the features," she explains.

Because square faces have defined features, Baker says to go with a soft shape that will make your brows appear rounder and less severe.

If you have a heart-shaped face, further enhance your natural shape by working with it. "I like to give people rounded or low arched brows because the curve of the brow will create a heart look, which will flow with the face," Baker says.

Oval Face

When you have an oval face, don't go too hard on the arch. "A soft-angled brow pairs nicely with an oval-shaped face," says Baker. Raising the arch too much will exaggerate the length of the face.
