Not only are fuller eyebrows in vogue, they also frame your face and can take years off your look. Over time, however, it’s very common for our eyebrows to get thinner – especially if you have been known to pluck them over the years (um, guilty as charged!).
To give your brows some TLC so they are thick and luscious (hello, perfect salon-style eyebrows at home), here are some of our simple tricks to get your brows back in their best shape possible.
1 // Stop plucking and waxing
This might be hard at first, but it’s best to go cold turkey for several weeks and give your brows a chance to make a come back on their own. Hide the tweezers if you need to!
2 // Start exfoliating
Grab yourself a fine scrub and give your eyebrows a gentle once over. You could even try using a very soft toothbrush. This will stimulate blood flow, and remove any dead skin cells that block new growth.
3 // Grab some serum
Visit the chemist or department store and find yourself some brow oils or serums that are designed to promote hair growth. There are many brands available within a variety of price ranges. If you’re willing to spend some cash, we can’t talk highly enough of RevitaLash – get set for beautiful bushy brows (and it can be used to promote long lashes, too).
4 // Fill in the gaps
While you are waiting for the new growth to occur, you can use your eyebrow pencil or some eye shadow to complete your look.
If you need some help with shaping your brows, you can also buy some eyebrow stencils. These allow you to select the shape of brow you like, and then simply follow the guideline of the stencil with your pencil or powder.
5 // Keep things dark
Too-light brows can add years to your look. If you’ve got some super blonde or grey in your brows, try a tinted brow gel, which will help to hide the lighter hairs.
