Brow Mapping - The ins & outs
The Importance of Eyebrow Mapping
Eyebrow trends are always developing and changing, one month it’s all about thick and messy brows, the next thin and sculpted arches are all the rage! However, Brow Mapping is the one constant remaining technique, which pros often rely on to help create the perfect shaped eyebrow.
Everyone knows by now that eyebrows are a very individual trait and it’s most definitely not a one size fits all approach when it comes to shaping the eyebrows. So, when shaping brows, it’s very important that you work towards the correct brow shape for your face and your natural eyebrows and this is exactly where brow mapping comes into play!
What is Brow Mapping?
Brow Mapping is a widely used eyebrow technique that helps to find the ideal brow shape on your face. Brow Technicians take multiple measurements of your eyebrows and eyes in order to establish the correct brow shape for your face. Essentially it is the process of marking specific points on the eyebrows, which allows the technician to indicate where the eyebrows should start, where the arch should appear and where the tail of the brow should finish.
It is the best way to achieve a perfect brow shape that is tailored to your face shape. When it is done properly it can change the way your face looks by drawing attention to certain areas and away from others. So, while mapping is a universal standard technique across the board, it ultimately yields a totally customized end result. As it is dependent on the individual eye and face shape. Furthermore, it’s also one of the easiest ways to prevent major errors in brow shaping, such as the eyebrows turning out too thin or the arch being misplaced.
Why is Brow Mapping Important?
It is important to use eyebrow mapping as it creates the brow shape and size that is correct for the individual face. Unlike a stencil where you use a pre-shaped stencil to draw the eyebrow shape, or to free hand the brow shape, eyebrow mapping is specific to you! As it takes into consideration your features. Brow mapping brings symmetry to your face as well as balancing the eyes and defining the face, when done correctly, it can also create the illusion of a lift around the eyes.
