- Step 1: Stop tweezing Stop tweezing immediately. Highly arched, thin brows can actually age a person, so put down the tweezers and back away. Study your face to see what brow contour works best with your features and aim for that shape.
- TIP: Eyebrow stencil kits -- available at beauty supply and retail stores -- come in a wide variety of shapes for perfectly sculpted brows.
- Step 2: Grow according to plan Look into the mirror and observe the regrowth. There's no need to embrace a hairy unibrow while growing back your eyebrows. Pluck judiciously, allowing brows to fill in underneath the arch first.
- TIP: It can take six months for eyebrow hair to grow back.
- Step 3: Be patient Be patient. Fill in sparse areas with an eyebrow pencil or a powder in a color similar to your natural brow shade. Apply the pencil or powder in light, swift strokes rather than in a continuous line. Hold unruly hairs in place with a light brow gel.
- Step 4: Hide brow stubble Hide dark eyebrow stubble with eye shadow that is slightly lighter than your eyebrows' color. Apply it underneath the arch and blend it into the brow bone.
- FACT: Mexican artist Frida Kahlo famously included her hard-to-miss bushy unibrow in her self-portraits.
