Like the shape of your face and color of your eyes, each eyebrow is also unique. Some are thin and some are thick some are straight and some are heavily arched. Understanding your natural eyebrows are important and avoiding the most common mistakes are even more important!
Here are some of the top brow mistakes you can avoid:
Removing brow hair using a magnifying mirror
Being able to see every single eyebrow hair is not important. A magnifying glass usually causes over plucking and could lead to bald spots in your eyebrows!
Shaping eyebrows after they are professionally done
Trying to maintain your eyebrows between visits seems like a good idea. However, many are unsure about the amount of hair to be plucked or removed. Over plucking could completely ruin the shape of the eyebrow which is difficult to fix later o. So, don’t try to fix something yourself – get professional help!
Removing too many hair between the brows
Getting rid of the uni-brow effect by yourself might lead to over plucking and could ruin the shape of your brows. Try to hold a pencil vertically across the nose to get an idea of how much you need to pluck. Use it as a guide.
Now maintaining brows while growing them out
While you wait for over plucked eyebrows to grow, make sure that you use brow makeup to create the desired shape. After they grow, you can get them professionally shaped.
Using the wrong brush with brow products
Having the right tools is of great help. Wrong brushes can lead to unnatural lines.
Filling the brows with too dark pencils
Using too dark pencils could give a harsh look to the eyebrows. Using a dark brown pencil instead of brown gives a much more flattering look to your eyebrows.
Not using brow measurements
Never use guess work when filling your eyebrows – always use measurement. Outline the shape and then fill it carefully.
Skipping brow gel
The finishing touches are important. They help keep the eye brows in place and give them a groomed appearance. Use the right gel – do not skip this step!
Thinking brows should be identical
Brows are sisters – not twins. So, give them similar shapes don’t worry about identical. Make each brow perfect!

Admit it or not, we all have had at least one eyebrow disaster and the shapes and sizes of our eyebrows kept changing each time we used a plucker or tweezers. When an eyebrow disaster strikes, there’s only one thing to think of – what now? Here’s what you could do in this case:
1. Let your eyebrows grow back completely before shaping or grooming
Do not be let down by an eye brow disaster, because there are ways to fix it! Well, the very first step is to leave your eyebrows alone – at least for some time and let them grow as much as possible. It’s important to stay patient and resistant to the urge to wax, thread or pluck.
2. Use a fine pencil or powder to fill in the sparse areas
In order to fill out bald spots in eyebrows, you can use a thin pencil or powder. Both of these tools are precise and natural looking. During the summer, powder is a better pick as the skin tends to get moist from the humidity. During winters, a waxy pencil can create the same effect.
When you are ready to groom again, go to a pro, who will shape your brows without removing too much hair If you have been patient and have let your hair grow again, it’s important to let a professional artist groom it for you.
3. Step back from the mirror
It’s important to understand that you must stand at least two feet away from the mirror and map the exact path that you need to remove the hair from. You will need to pick the hair that you can see from that far.
4. Microblading can be a great option for sparse eyebrows
Microblading is an excellent option for filling in eyebrows. When your brow hairs no longer seem to grow, microblading is a semi permanent way to fill them. The process uses a small blade to deposit colored pigment just under the skin’s surface. The results can last up to a year or even longer. Getting it done from a professional ensures that you get attractive results in the end.
