If you have ever fallen into the rabbit hole that is over plucking eyebrows, then you know it can be a scary thing to come out of with little to no brows leftover. So what do you do in this situation? Is it too late to recover from, or is there anything to be done about your tweezing failure?
Lucky for you and the rest of us that have been victims of this mistake, there are a few ways to help fix this issue. Don’t have your meltdown quite yet. Let’s talk about the most effective ways to fix tweezed eyebrows that went a bit overboard.
One of the main issues when trying to grow your brows back out is a poor diet and health. This has a huge impact on the speed and amount of hair that is growing on our brows. If we aren’t taking proper care of our body, then it does not work up to par.
Work on fixing your diet to be a more balanced meal of carbs, protein, and fat and maintaining a steady sleep schedule of around 8 hours a night . These two components are the biggest perpetrators to a healthy or unhealthy lifestyle. Master these two, and I guarantee your body will start functioning better, including your brows.
2. Fill in Brows
First things first, you will need to try and fill in your brows until they grow back, or you choose a brow procedure. Depending on your natural brow color, other options will work better for others. Some prefer powders and others prefer brow pens. There are other options as well, but these are two of the most common options.
Powders are a lot less detailed, so if you are looking for something to fill your brow while it grows, it would work well. On the other end, pens are a lot more precise, so if you are shaping your brows from scratch, then you will have more success with a pen.
Whichever option you choose, be sure to go a bit lighter in terms of color. I know it can be tempting to go super dark, but the lighter you go, the more natural and less obvious it will be that you filled your brows in.
2. Brow Procedures
For longer effects, a brow procedure is a great solution to help prevent and fix overplucking. There are loads of options when it comes to brow procedures: brow lamination, brow tinting, microblading, microshading. Each has their own unique qualities that would be good for certain goals.
If you’re looking for a more permanent option, try microblading or microshading. These are cosmetic tattoo procedures that will give you a year or more of perfectly shaped brows, so you can let your natural brows grow in and stay away from the tweezers for a bit.
If you aren’t ready to take the more permanent leap, you can try out brow lamination or brow tinting which can last weeks or months, depending on the maintenance. However, both of these options will be more noticeable as your natural brows grow since there is little to any definition in the brow other than laminating the hair you already have or adding a tint over the whole eyebrow.
A vital step that many of us fail to complete is incorporating a serum into your daily routine. There are loads of options, and you can choose a hair and nail vitamin instead of or paired with a serum, but this is what will make your brows grow back quickly and full on top of your diet.
Serums help give your brows the extra kick of nutrients and necessary vitamins to keep your hair growing and speed up the process. Apply this onto your brows and even lashes every night to have the best results. This has been a game changer for my eyebrows, so don’t forget it!
Next time you pick up the tweezers and are tempted to go to town on your eyebrows, remember the time and effort it took to get them to the point they are at now. Staring at your brows and nitpicking each imperfection will only make small details stand out more, so rock your natural brows. Pluck the outliers and call it a day! Your eyebrows will thank you.
