It happens to the best of us, we start off with good intentions of cleaning up those strays when we get a little carried away and the next thing we know, we are sans half an eyebrow!
There are solutions to over plucking however, quick and long term.
Pick up an eyebrow pencil, shadow in the same shade as your eyebrows and a short haired angled brush, it's important to buy good quality for all these items, otherwise you might see smudging or fading over the day, which is never a good look. To apply the brow colour, follow the natural shape of your eyebrows with the pencil, be careful not to press to hard, you don't want to see the pencil line - use short strokes. Then fill in the sparse areas with the shadow, using the pencil first will help give the definition you want and the shadow softens the pencil for a natural look.
Long Term Fix:
Over plucking means that you now have to wait for the eyebrows to grow back, to help boost the growth you can pick up an eyebrow growth product or use a natural product such as castor oil which will help encourage the hair to grow. Also, once your eyebrows grow back you may want to have a professional ( The Brow House
or Gee Beauty
) reshape them.
When plucking your eyebrows at home, remember to never try to change the natural shape of your brow, because they have grown to fit the shape of your face. Always use good tweezers, Taylor Byers Makeup Artist recommends a slanted tip for accuracy. ( read more of Taylor's tips and trends on eyebrows
