Studies show that the shape of your eyebrows speaks volumes about your inner self. Whether you've got a full, natural look or a sharp, manicured arch, you're telling the world who are before you ever say a word. Read on to discover the secrets your brow reveals!
If your eyebrows are…
Natural: You’re a Down-to-Earth Nurturer
A deep-thinking intellectual, you’re everyone’s go-to advisor and confidante. Even those outside your inner circle infer this much about you, because the unfussy, unpretentious shape framing your eyes points to your genuine, compassionate nature. Your preference for au naturel lines also reflects a bold, confidant spirit, as you’re completely comfortable in your own skin.
Thin: You’re an Alluring Introspective
Your barely-there style is a delicate reflection of your less is more aesthetic, signaling that you’re a minimalist in more ways than one: Just as your thin brow is a soft whisper, so are you a person of few words. You keep things close to the vest, but when you do open up and reveal your inner world to a select group of friends, it’s worth the wait.
Rounded: You’re a Generous Idealist
Those soft curves above your eyes mirror the softness in your eyes. A subtle, smooth shape is often associated with sweetness and sensitivity. Big-hearted and empathetic, you’re always gifting others with your time and talents. You're blessed with an optimistic outlook and embrace the possibilities of the present moment, even as your gaze is firmly fixed on the future.
Straight: You’re a Laser-Focused Planner
According to body-language and face-reading experts, your linear brow shape signals an even-keel, pragmatic temperament. You know that the fastest route between two points is a straight line, yet, thanks to your detail-oriented nature, you’re able to methodically focus on each step you take along the way, ensuring big-picture success.
Arched: You’re a Charming Leader
The pointed pinnacle of an inverted “V” is an apt symbol for your lofty ambitions. A born leader, you exude equal parts strength and charisma. And, according to one study, people perceive your stylized brow shape as a sign of sensuality and glamour. In short? You’re as feminine as you are formidable.
