As we covered in module 3, brow mapping is a technique that is used to help find the ideal brow shape for a client’s facial proportions. When we are mapping clients’ brows, we are essentially marking measurements on their face to determine where the brow line should start (head), where the arch should be (body) and where the brow should end (tail). We are also providing ourselves with a guide for the lower and upper edge of each brow body and tail, as well as ensuring each brow is the same height on the forehead.
It is important to note that the markings left by your brow mapping process do not necessarily define the outer edge of your entire brow! It is up to you as an artist to create a set of aesthetically pleasing, symmetrical brows using your creativity and experience. This, of course, will come with practice and time.
