Eyebrows are one of those facial features that we don’t always notice yet play an enormous role in how we look. Perfect brows are, ironically, almost invisible as they quietly frame our eyes and add depth and interest to our faces. On the other hand, poorly done brows are jarring and tend to stand out as unpleasant examples of what not to do.
If you’re struggling with fine or patchy brow hair, or you’ve suffered complete hair loss through a medical condition and are exploring micropigmentation, there’s no doubt that you want to be sure that you achieve the perfect brow shape.
We’d like to help you to find the perfect and most natural solution.
Is Micropigmentation the Answer?
Micropigmentation, also known as microblading or semi-permanent makeup, is the go-to solution for many people. It offers a beautifully gentle enhancement of lips, eyes, and brows when performed by professional artists.
Micropigmentation of the brow area is one of the most practical, long-term procedures.
Suki Mezei says, “If you have little or no eyebrow hair or would like to perfect the shape of your eyebrows, creating a youthful lift to the eye area that emphasises your eyes, this is the treatment for you. Considering your face shape and colouring, this technique is achieved using fine hair strokes by hair simulation or a subtle colour mist infusion.”
It’s interesting to note that eyebrows are not just a necessary beauty feature. One article on the topic of the roles eyebrows play says, “Eyebrows are an important part of human expression and communication. They allow us to show our emotions. One raised eyebrow expresses scepticism or interest. Two raised eyebrows can express surprise.”
With this in mind, it’s no wonder that so many people are opting for a long-term solution to thin or missing eyebrows. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect brows, your specialist considers several factors, not least of which is the Golden Ratio.
What Is the Golden Ratio For the Perfect Eyebrow Shape?
Without delving into the maths of the Golden Ratio, it can be loosely defined as an equation found in nature that creates an organic, natural symmetry. When applied to the shape of the eyebrows, it’s interesting to note that each person will have a different result based on the same ratios.
In simple terms, your perfect eyebrow shape should follow these imaginary lines:
- The brows should start directly above the middle of each nostril
- The corner of the nose toward the outer corner of the eye should mark the end of the brow
- The centre of the nose to through the middle of the iris should be the highest point of the arch
The shape of the brow is the starting point of your micropigmentation journey. Several elements still play a part in the final, exquisite result.
Choosing the Best Brows for You
Once your micropigmentation specialist has mapped out the ideal shape, they will explore other essential factors with you.
The success of the final result comes from understanding how a millimetre or two here and there work with your unique face shape.
Complimenting the defining features of your face requires balance. Therefore, your technician may suggest a lower arch with an elongated tail if you have a longer, thinner-shaped face, as this widens the face. Alternatively, a high arch will open up and help to lengthen a round face, whereas a softer arch and less definition will work well with a square or more angular face shape.
We’re often asked if your eyebrows should be lighter or darker than your hair colour. Obviously, this is a personal preference, but the most natural and complimentary look comes with brows that are a shade or two darker than your natural hair colour.
Our overall tone is not based on one single thing. Rather, our skin tone, hair colour, eye colour, and even our age will play a part in determining the right colour for your semi-permanent makeup. Even the lightest blonde hair is complimented by a soft brown brow, but we would obviously want to avoid going too dark and creating a harsh and unforgiving brow that draws the eye.
Professional micropigmentation in this important area needs to be subtle and realistic. The fine strokes that can be achieved by a skilled technician, along with the correct and careful use of colour, offer a truly outstanding result.
Sometimes, you have to ignore what’s trending on Instagram and go with what suits you best and makes you feel beautiful. We’ve seen thick, bushy brows followed by thin, tweezed shapes and everything in between.
Communicating candidly with your technician will help toward the final result; one that you’re both happy with and that really works with your facial features. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different thicknesses while you’re deciding on the end look.
