The Perfect Shape
1. The highest point of the eyebrow, the arch, is placed as far to the side as possible. In other words, the first part of the eyebrow should take up about 70%, and the tail 30%.
2. The top part of the brow base points slightly outwards, or in the very least, the highest point of the base should never point inwards.
3. Make sure the beginning of the brow goes from light to dark when you tint the brows (or apply make-up) to prevent a too heavy, block-like front.
4. Always make straight lines, especially on the underside of the brow, when you are shaping and especially with epilation, waxing and tinting. A useful tool for this is Brow Mapping Thread.
How does brow mapping work?
Creating perfect eyebrows is not only about measuring well, but much more about insight and feeling
At Mrs.Highbrow we believe in brow mapping, to a certain extent. You can put two identical eyebrows on someone's face, but hardly anyone is completely symmetrical! When drawing, you have to take into account that one eye can be higher or deeper, or that the other eye is simply a fraction larger. Two precisely symmetrical eyebrows can actually give a strange look! In such cases, you need to shorten or raise one eyebrow slightly to get the best result. Creating perfect eyebrows doesn't only have to do with good measuring, but much more with insight and feeling. A good brow specialist has a carpenter's eye for these kinds of details. The secret? Practice! You really only develop a good eye for this by practicing, practicing, practicing, and seeing a lot of brows.
