In this brow-obsessed era, it's normal to panic over sparse brows. But whether you weren't genetically blessed with Cara Delevingne-esque arches or your eyebrows were a victim of over-plucking, we've got the tricks to make your arches full and fabulous below.
1. Let them grow first.
Stay away from tweezers and waxing salons to help your brows bounce back. It normally takes three to four weeks for your brow hairs to sprout, so leave your arches alone.
2. Make them grow faster.
Speed up the process by using a lash or brow growth serum every morning and night. A brow serum like Revitabrow (available at dermatological clinics) strengthens and conditions each follicle to stimulate healthy growth.
3. Shape sans the tweeze.
The downside of growing your brows out is that they lose their shape and look unruly, but of course, you have to control yourself from tweezing! Hide stray hairs with an easy-to-use concealer pencil like Covergirl’s Trublend Fixstick Concealer (available at department stores).
4. Be a brow artist.
To make your arches look naturally thick, carefully draw tiny hairs using an eyebrow felt tip pen on sparse areas instead of drawing a whole block of brow. We are partial to K-Palette’s Real Lasting Eyebrow Liner (P795 at Beauty Bar branches) because the pigment seamlessly blends with your real brow color and lasts for a long time!
5. Volumize each strand with eyebrow mascara.
Apart from softening your eyebrows’ tint, brow mascara coats each hair, making the strands appear thicker and 3D—not drawn-on and flat. We recommend Nars’ Brow Gel (P1,250 at Rustan’s branches) because it also helps your brows stay put all day long.
