You started with a clear plan for flawless brows. The next you thing you knew, your brows are gone! Here’s what to do to rebuild sparse eyebrows.
So, you over-plucked your brows? The first thing to do is to calm down. In less than one month, your brows will be back to normal. Even the craziest, most overzealous plucking won’t do any permanent damage.
In the meantime, you’ve got to do what you can to cover up those bald patches. Here's how to fix your over-plucked brows.
Accept No Fast Fixes
There are a ton of brow-growth potions and crazy home remedies out there. Ignore all of them! Nothing is going to make your hair grow any faster. While conditioning oils can make your eyebrows look healthier and prevent breakage, nothing on earth speeds up the rate at which hair actually grows out of your body.
Know Your Shape
Now is as good of a time as any to establish a new brow shape. When you're considering your best brow look, keep your face shape in mind. If you have a round face, go for a bold, strong brow. If you have an angular face, opt for a rounded, delicate brow. Your goal is to create contrast between your facial shape and your brow shape.
Use a brow pencil to draw on your dream shape. Then pluck away any hairs that fall outside of the lines. And keep your cool! You don’t want another over-plucking incident, but you do want to get a basic shape established.
Want to update your brow game? Grab the essentials! A good quality tweezers will make it so much easier to shape your brows. We love the Tweezerman Slant Tweezer for a painless and easy pluck.
Fill In Your Brows
Once you've created the best foundation you can, start filling in the missing pieces. While soft pencils and eyebrow powders can be great for your brows, you need something more serious to cover bald spots. Go for waterproof eyebrow products so that you don’t wind up with patchy coverage at the end of a long day.
Lancôme Sourcils Définis Precision Eyebrow Pencil is a great pick for a natural look. Not only is it an easy-to-use waterproof pencil, but it also comes in a wide range of colours to match your brows perfectly. Lancôme offers this product in blonde, red, black, two browns, and even grey.
Hate shopping for separate products? Grab a kit! The Clarins Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette has everything you could possibly need for perfect eyebrows. This professional-grade set includes brow stencils, a precision tweezers, a pair of brow powders, a brush, and clear brow gel.
