We have substantial proof that defined brows can instantly make you look polished and put together — if they’re sculpted to suit your particular face shape. Yes, brows aren’t one-size-fits-all: they come in a variety of shapes, angles, and lengths that enhance different features. To help you on your quest, we’ve included a full-size Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel in every April Birchbox x Cath Kidston box and put together this handy guide on how to use it…
The Face Shape: Oval
How to Shape It: Since an oval face is what most women are chasing through contouring, your natural brows don’t need much work — just focus on making them fuller to break up your features. After grooming your brows by tweezing any stray hairs that fall below your brow line, brush Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel through to add instant fullness and draw attention to your eyes.
The Face Shape: Round
How to Shape It: Using the tip of the Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel, mark the start and arch of your brow out. Then, connect each point using short, hair-like strokes. Apply a little more product to the arch to add volume and amp up its height. Apply just a touch of highlighter underneath the peak of the arch for extra definition.
The Face Shape: Square
How to Shape It: To make your arch appear higher, apply the brow gel along the top of your arch then softly blend it into the rest of your brow to keep the overall shape more rounded. For extra oomph, apply a touch of highlighter just below to emphasise the arch without making it too angular.
The Face Shape: Heart
How to Shape It: First, fill in any sparse areas to build a rounder shape. Normally, we would suggest using a quick setting gel to comb hairs into place, making sure to avoid any hard or blunt angles when styling and setting your brows – but Beautaniq Beauty’s Fill + Tame Gel does this all for you!
The Face Shape: Long
How to Shape It: Shortening brows should be left to the pros! Instead, try lowering the arch of the brow, to shorten this face shape. Use short stokes to apply the brow gel just underneath your natural shape, avoiding any harsh angles. Then use horizontal swipes at a slightly downward angle around the arch to give the shape a straighter look.
