At-home plucking usually results in you wishing you could stay at home. Till your over-plucked eyebrows grow back, that is. But, you can’t do that, even if your brows do look like fraternal twins. And while the best way to avoid over-plucked brows is not to over pluck, it’s a bit too late for that. So for now, put down the tweezers (you’ll just make it worse) and pick up these practical tips on plucking eyebrows and how to full them.
Plucking Eyebrows-Tip One: Get a good eyebrow stencil. Find a stencil that closely matches your eyebrow shape or if you really over plucked, your desired eyebrow shape. Swap them until you find a stencil that has most of your brow hair inside the cut-out. If you are struggling to pick one, find a picture of yourself (the bigger the better) before you took that plucking plunge. Then, place each stencil over the picture to see which one matches your eyebrow shape. Try the incredibly natural stencils from e.l.f.’s Eyebrow Stencil Kit for just £1.50.
Plucking Eyebrows-Tip Two: Fill in the eyebrow-shaped cut-out. After placing the stencil over your brow, you’ll notice the bald patches around your over-plucked eyebrows. Fill them in with your fave brow powder, our top choice, or brow pencil for day. Remember, draw hair-like strokes.
Plucking Eyebrows-Tip Three: When you start to see eyebrow fuzz, fill in the entire eyebrow-shaped cut-out with a contrasting pencil colour, such as white or blue. Then, pluck the non-coloured hairs. After you are done plucking, wash or wipe away the pencil. This is the best away to know what to pluck and what not to pluck.
Plucking Eyebrows-Tip Four: To cut hair-regrowth waiting time, try an eyebrow serum. RevitaBrow, £87 for 3ml, www.skinbrands.co.uk, uses a brow hair-boosting formula, including peptides (proteins) and botanicals, such as ginseng root, which helps support fragile hair growth, and more. Perfect for a so-not-pretty, over-plucked pair.
Another beautiful bonus, RevitaLash is donating 10 per cent of its in-store profits from RevitaLash Advanced 3.5 ml and 2.0 ml to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. RevitaLash was developed by American ophthalmologist Michael Brinkenhoff, M.D., for his wife, Gayle, a breast cancer sufferer who had lost most of her eyelashes.
