How To Fix Over-Plucked Eyebrows

Your eye brows frame your eyes, and they are a major part of your overall look. When you get a bit too zealous with the plucking of your eyebrows you can end up with a look that is, shall we say, not too pleasing. Do not Tweeze Your Browspanic! While you wait for your brows to grow in there are some cosmetic fixes available to you to correct your sparse brows.

One thing you can try is a brow powder to use as filler. The most important thing here is to make sure it closely matches your natural brow color. You do not want to use black filler for blonde or light brown brows! Put the product on the brush, and then be sure to shake off any excess powder. You can do this easily by blowing on the brush. Your best tool for application is your angled eye brush. Apply the product by brushing upward and following the natural arch of your brow. This should provide you with a somewhat fuller look for your thin brows.

In the event you do not have brow filler on hand, an eye shadow will work in a pinch. Follow the same rules as far as color and application guidelines that your would for the brow filler.

You can also achieve the same effect with an eyebrow pencil. Work a similar shade into your brows and brush upwards with a brow brush to distribute the pencil through your existing brows. There are many brands of pencils available both in your local drugstore and in department stores.

There are also products known as brow extenders, and these are formulas, usually a gel, that contain tiny microscopic fibers that cling to your eyebrows. You apply the product to your brow, and it really plumps up your brow. If you do not want to use a pencil or filler, you should definitely try these extenders.

Patience is a virtue, as they say, and you will need some patience when waiting for the missing brows to grow back. You may want to try a hair and skin supplement and see if this can speed up the process. There are many brands of supplements that contain biotin and other minerals and nutrients that claim to help nails and hair grow, and these would also be beneficial for eyelashes and eyebrows.

For those of you who have nice full brows, you can avoid a brow disaster by investing in a visit to a salon to have your brows professionally shaped and trimmed. Then, only pluck the occasional stray hair outside of the shape that your technician has built for you. Do not attempt to tweeze out the hairs and change the shape of your brow with tweezers on your own unless you are very skilled at this craft. There are times when hiring a professional really is the best way to go!
