Beauty How-To: Get Through an Overplucked Period

How to Get Through an Overplucked Period:
We’ve all been there. It starts with one stray hair and a tweezer-rampage later it look like you took a John Deere to your eyebrows. Luckily it’s nothing a little makeup, and a lot of time, can’t fix.

Draw on eyebrows:
Elizabeth Arden’s Dual Perfection Brow Shaper and Eyeliner comes in two shades and retains your brows’ shape until it grows back in. Another option is to grab an eyeliner that matches your brow color and fill them in with soft, light strokes, checking the shape in natural light.

Keep existing eyebrows in shape:
Use a brow brush or comb to brush over-plucked eyebrows into place. Think of it as an eyebrow comb-over. Use a clear eyebrow gel to keep them in place.

Try an eyebrow stencil:
Purchase an eyebrow stencil. Place it around your eyebrows to see where your best shape lyes, and when you pluck in the future to avoid going overboard.

Camouflage over-plucked eyebrows:

Get professional help:
Visit a beautician to give you a lesson on how to properly shape your eyebrows so you don’t go through this again! It will be worth the financial investment.
