Over-plucking can result in uneven, patchy eyebrows. Fuller eyebrows help to widen eyes for a more youthful appearance. Transform thin, highly arched commas into perfectly sculpted luscious, eyebrows faster with these tips.
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.
