Overplucked eyebrows – Help!

by Emma Peters February 10, 2015

Recently I’ve gotten emails from a few women asking me how they can grow their overplucked eyebrows back.

Unfortunately the eyebrows seem to be the only hair on the body that does not grow back…

To my knowledge, there is no creme that will make them grow back either.

But, I do have a great way to fake it!

Once mastered will look really natural and you will have those important frames for the eyes back again.

Here’s how to do it;

From an art shop, get a very fine pointed synthetic brush, (less expensive than a makeup brush) you will want it to be fine enough to be able to draw little eyebrow hairs.

Then get an eyeshadow that is close in color to your natural eyebrow color. Err on the lighter side though and note that
eyebrows generally don’t have too much warmth to them, so stay very neutral.

Get some hair spray and spray your brush so it is wet and mix it with the eye shadow creating a water resistant paint which will last all day.

Then create little strokes of hair to fill in the gaps.

If that still sounds a little too fancy and technical, The Brow Gal do a great eyebrow pencil in six different colors. One end is a pencil with a built in sharpener for getting those fine hair like strokes and the other end is a spoolie to soften off the look and comb the brows into place.

Also, really useful are eyebrow stencils, just hold it in place and fill in the shape with your little fine hair like strokes. Remember to draw them in the direction that the hair would grow and you might want to practice a bit on your hand first.

Once you have got this technique down, you will have brand new natural looking brows that will last all day long!!
