What is the Perfect Eyebrow?

IMG 9841

Gone are the days of the ultra-thin eyebrow that is basically non-existent. Today, we are in the age of the fuller, thicker, darker brow. But how do we achieve this look when our eyebrows are thin, sparce or just not as dark as want them to be?

Well…you have a couple options. Of course, you can pencil in your eyebrows every day to make them appear richer and fuller. But, you run the risk of losing your perfect brows when you go swimming or wipe your face after a hot sweaty yoga sesh. Option B, and my personal favorite, is to undergo microblading. This will create the most beautiful, natural looking brow that you don’t have to worry about penciling in yourself ever again!

OK, so you’ve decided to give microblading a shot. But how do you determine the perfect brow for your face. Well, first, take inventory of other people’s brows and find someone with a similar face shape whose eyebrows you love and start there. From there, you can work with your microblading artist to come up with the perfect brow for your face.

What is Your Face Shape?

As you start thinking about achieving the perfect brow, whether its through a pencil or if you are going to seek out microblading, it is important to keep in mind what looks good on someone else may not look good on you. So, the first step to finding you YOUR perfect brow is finding YOUR face shape. You can do this easily by looking in the mirror and asking yourself if your face is round, oval, long, square, heart shaped or diamond.

Perfect Brows for Round Faces: if your face is round, you can use the shape of your eyebrows to make it appear less circular. To do this, you want to lift the arch and spice up the angel. By lifting the arch, it will lengthen the look of your face, giving the illusion that your face is more oval than round.

Perfect Brows for Oval Faces: if your face is more oval, you will want to create a brow that has a soft angle and small arch. This look is softer and more feminine. You can still create a gorgeous thick and full brow with a soft arch.

Perfect Brows for Long Faces: if you have a long face, you want to create a flatter brow (one with less arch) to create the illusion that your face is shorter or more oval.

Perfect Eyebrows for Square Faces: a square face means you have a strong jawline. This is a gorgeous feature that you can balance out with an equally strong brow. The perfect brow for someone with a square face is one that has a defined arch.

Perfect Eyebrows for Heart Shaped Faces: if your face is heart shaped, you may consider going with a strong brow with a higher arch to extend your face.

Perfect Eyebrows for Diamond Shaped Faces: diamond shape faces are rare, but gorgeous. If this is you, you will want to create a softer look by going with less of an arch.

Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know before microblading.

1

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.

2

Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.

Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.

6

There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.

Discomfort is minimal, although a numbing cream is applied to alleviate any discomfort.
