When we think of eyebrows, we think of beautifully shaped and thick arches.

In the meantime, we are left with certain methods such as 3D microblading and brow penciling. Take a look below at some of the eyebrow shapes trending around the world. Maybe you can adopt one of these styles that works best for your unique features and complete the look you’ve always wanted.

The feathered look is found mostly in Western Europe. It gives off an effortlessly chic vibe. These feathered brows are simply combed up and out with a few short strokes of brow powder and topped off with brow gel.

Middle Eastern well-defined eyebrows focus all the attention to the eyes

Number 2: Middle East and Eastern Europe

Traveling East, we will find more of the bold and angular type brow. In the Middle East, the eyes play an important role as the focal point of the face, and therefore, the eyebrows must stand out. This look is also very popular on Instagram among makeup artists.

Beach eyebrows from down under

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.
