Microblading Image
You’ve tried every solution known to man to remedy your brows, and you’ve finally decided that microblading was the best solution for you. You find a reputable specialist, schedule your consultation and you’re all ready to go. You arrive at said location, eagerly ready to flaunt your news brows, and after a few minutes of talking with your specialist you realize one big problem: your specialist doesn’t trust your opinion and you don’t trust theirs.

When it comes to microblading, trust is one of the biggest factors in achieving a flawless, natural look, if not THE most important factor. And it’s not just clients trusting the specialist, it’s the specialist also trusting the client.

Since microblading is considered an art, it’s easy to understand why there can differences in opinions. Your client may want arched brows to a degree you find absurd, and your specialist wants to give you brows as dark as Groucho Marx.

But art after all, is a highly debatable subject.

So how do you come to compromise?

It’s important to remember that each party brings a valuable asset to the team: the client knows the look they want to achieve, however your area of expertise is to craft and eyebrow that they didn’t even know was possible.

Therefore, when sitting down with a brow specialist or client, it’s important to keep an open mind and try to not let preconceptions or stubbornness guide your adjustment. In doing so, you’ll ensure that you both have a smooth and fun process.

When it comes to square faces, the jaw line is the strongest feature. Therefore, it’s priority to balance a strong jaw with a strong brow, or to soften the appearance of the jaw
with soft curves. Angled brows, for example do a great job at creating this balance.

Round Faces

As mentioned in the name, round faces create a rounded, more widened look, and the last thing you need is for your brows to make your face look any rounder.

To give your face a longer look, create a higher arch and stay away from arches that have a more rounded look. Think Kate Upton.

Oblong Faces

Opposite of the round face, the oblong face appears to long in length, therefore the idea eyebrow look will be take make the face appear shorter. To achieve this look, aim for a brow that has more of a flat look (not to high of an arch, but not a extremely low arch). Creating a flat look will give balance to your face and make the jaw line appear smaller. Think Jennifer Connolly.

Heart Faces

Heart faces have a lot of curves, especially near the jaw area. To balance the shape of the jawline and to feature your beautiful heart shape, it’s best to round out your eyebrows. In doing so, you’ll achieve a beautiful natural look that creates a very soft and elegant look. Think Reese Witherspoon.

Diamond Faces

Diamond faces have sharp angles at the highest peak of their faces; the cheek bones. The goal with diamond faces is to make the face appear less wide.

To do so, curve the eyebrow and it’s widest point, to make the face appear more slender. Think Halle Berry.

Oval Faces

The Oval face is one of the most universal shapes and can virtually handle any eyebrow shape. However, be mindful that because the face is already oval, you want to stray away from brows that will make your face look more rounded. 

Soft angled eyebrows are idea in creating a soft balance and bringing out your best features. Think Jessica Alba.

Number 4: Australia

A trend that most likely started in Australia and is making its way to Europe, the “beach” eyebrow consists of lightening the shade of your eyebrows without bleaching them. The key to achieving this look is to comb your brows with eye primer to coat the hairs and then fill in with a brow pencil that’s a shade lighter than your hair.

Correcting Bad Eyebrow Tattoos

 • 

I was always against eyebrow tattoos because I believe that a great eyebrow shape can be attained naturally through patience, proper grooming, and upkeep. And also because so many permanent makeup (cosmetic tattoo) companies are not experts in achieving the most appropriate eyebrow shape for their clients.

For example…

Companies advertise a permanent solution, but the shape is inappropriate for most people

Companies advertise eyebrow tattoos as a solution for people who have no hair growth in the eyebrow region.

I can sympathize with those clients and see why this offer is attractive…

 

 

Regardless of how long the tattoo lasts, the most important thing is achieving the correct shape for your unique face and enhance your unique beauty.

Most permanent makeup professionals do not know how to achieve the correct shape. Just like you see in the image above, clients do not end up looking so much better in the AFTER than BEFORE.

I have seen over hundreds of clients who come to me to correct their permanent makeup eyebrow shape. I have usually succeeded in doing this with the use of eyebrow pencils that have a similar color to the client’s hair. This often requires a lot of education and explanation and upkeep for the clients.

To help my clients I have studied and got certified as a permanent makeup professional.

I will now use my skills to improve the appearance of my client’s eyebrow tattoos to achieve the best shape possible for them.
