Determining your eyebrow shape is a major key to natural eyebrows. You don’t need any fancy tools to make a good set of brows, but they can be helpful.
I was taught to draw brows with bone structure, a popsicle stick, and a pencil. I was given the knowledge, teaching me where the brows were supposed to lay on the face and how to use those few tools to my advantage.
Once I had this fundamental technique down, I was able to expand and learn about other tools to make my work easier, more precise, and faster. When measuring brows, you decide the placement of the front, arch, and tail with the eyes and nose. You also decide the thickness and height of the arches, all according to the facial structure of your client.
What tools do I use?
I use a Brow mapping sticker that is measured out specifically for brows, along with thread and a very thin pencil. All of these tools are specifically made for Microblading mapping and are safe to microblade over.
How it works:
Once we’ve decided where your brow will start and end, we will then determine how high we want the arches, how thick we want the brows and where the center of the face is. I will have three horizontal lines across the face deciding where the arch, the top of the brow, and the bottom of the brow are. Then I will make a vertical line down the center of the face.
After this, everything will be measured from the furthest corner of your nose and three points on the eye; the tear duct, outer rim of the iris, and the outer corner of the eye. I use the measurements of the brow ruler to make sure the brows are symmetrical as possible. I will get all these points and figure out how high/low I want the tail and will connect the dots with my pencil.
As an artist this is where I can bring my insight on what I think would look best on you considering your natural brow and face shape. It is important to note, even if two artists have the same points, the brows they produce could be completely different. This is due to artist having different styles. To me this is a good thing because this shows creativity within our field.
The lines I make will look very thick and square, especially within the fronts, so you have to remember I will be filling in the brow with strokes that are following your natural flow of hair. The fronts and arches will not be blocky, I promise. The outline is exactly that, an outline, so when you are looking at your brows, you may be thinking these are way too thick, but you need to look at the negative space inside the lines. The hair strokes will just touch the top and bottom lines.
Something to consider:
Almost every new client feels like their brow will be too bulky and we decide to go a little smaller for the first session, but they always want to go bigger the second session.
I’m okay with that! I understand that Microblading is a big change for most people, so starting a little thinner and a little lighter is never a bad thing. We can always build things up!
All artists have a certain style, so it’s important to check out a portfolio of their previous work to ensure that you love the brows they create. I want to stress that in all forms of art, you will never find two artists the same, and that is the same with microblading. Microblading is Artistry, so you should find an artist that you love, just as you would for any other tattoo or painting you put in your house.
