We all have faced this trouble of over-plucked eyebrows at some point of time. But don’t panic …. ”wait till the egg hatches”… is the ultimate solution but you can hide the secret of your over-plucked eyebrows from the world easily.
Here are some tips to help you out:
1. Bounce Back
It usually takes about three to four weeks for eyebrows to grow back from a shaping, good or bad. But, if you have thin brows, it can take up to three months to get back to square one, says Ramy Gafni, brow expert and founder of Ramy Cosmetics. Just stop tweezing and give your brows a chance to grow back. Seeing scary patches of skin? No te preocupes, it takes consistent over-plucking or waxing to do permanent damage.
2. Grow Faster
For more hair in a hurry, try a growth serum, like Ramy Eye Grow Brows!, $25. You will see a difference in about 10 days.It also thickens the hairs for instant gratification. If you’re more of a DIYer, mustard oil has been used in India for centuries to make hair grow. “Rub some on brows before bed, and you should see results in a couple of weeks,” dermatologist Heather Woolery-Lloyd says.
3. Shape Up
But great brows aren’t just about thickness. You have to work the shape. Balance a round, wide face with a high, center-arched brow. If you’re more angular, a round soft brow is most flattering. Got a long face? A straighter brow will make it feel more oval. The brow should follow your bone structure, with the arch peaking right where your brow bone protrudes the most.
4. Go Sleek
For a sexy, fuller look, use a pencil or gel, which will last longer than powders and tame brows at the same time. Choose a color that’s two shades lighter than your eyebrow hair and brush the product through to blend and remove any excess, Gafni says. Try Maybelline Eyestudio Master Shape Brow Pencil, $7.99, which has a waxy texture that adheres to brows. Another good option is Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Brow- Volumizing Fiber Gel, $22; it has a small wand that’s easy to maneuver and fibers to make brows look fuller.
