Diamond Face Shape

This kind of face is widest at around the cheek bones. The aim is to soften and balance out the face. A curved eyebrow solves this purpose, it makes the widest part subtle and the arch elongates the face so that it looks balanced and not strikingly angular. Choose a curved brow to soften your angular face or keep emphasis on the center arch of the brow to draw away from the width of your face.
