What Can I Do with my Over Tweezed/Waxed Eyebrows?

I got a message on Sunday from a follower saying that she has had the experience that many of us have gone through. She had her eyebrows waxed and the person who did it took to much off the inside of her left brow and now they look uneven and awful! When I was in cosmetology school one of my good friends gave me a brow wax and did the same thing! It was an accident of course, but until then I had never filled in my eyebrow before! Just like the author of this letter, I felt like every time I filled it in it looked horrible and fake.

So what is a girl to do? I had some ideas of m own, however I turned to my good friends Janely and Marcie for more insight. Janely is a licensed cosmetologist, who used to be an eyebrow waxing arch-expert and now is now a manager for a prestige cosmetics section at a beauty store. Marci is a licensed esthetician and skin care expert, who currently holds the job position of a brow waxing arch-expert. Both of these ladies had a similar opinion to mine and I am happy to share our collaborative insight!

1- Be Patient
I know this sucks but learning to fill in your eyebrows properly takes time, and is super tricky when there is no hair there to blend with. You may have to deal with a bad brow week until you figure it out. Don't give up on yourself though, you can do it! You also need to have patience with your brows growing back. It takes time.

2- Speed Up Brow Growth
There are tons of lash and brow building serums on the market. The one we are recommending is Rapid Brow (or Rapid Lash & Brow). This product works by using six highly effective ingredients that help condition and improve the appearance of eyebrows. It wont grow them back overnight, but will help them come back a little faster. I am recommending this brand over several others because it is the best one I know of that works for the lowest cost. You can by Rapid Brow at ULTA Beauty, or online.

3- Use the Right Products
After using the Rapid Brow Serum to fill your brows in you need one more amazing product under your tool belt. Brow Zings by Benefit. This small kit comes with a tinted gel and a powder, as well as a few brow tools. The best place to get it is at an ULTA Beauty store. this way you can pick up the Rapid Brow while you are there, and talk to one of the Benefit Brow Bar specialists about brow filling tips and tricks, and you can also test the colors look a lot darker than they are once they are applied to the skin. However you will be able to test them on your skin there. Also NEVER fill in just the part of your eyebrow that is missing. You will need to fill in both whole brows in order to get a decent look. You may fee like the look is heavy, and it will be heavier than what you are used to, but be patient with yourself and keep trying.

4- Finding The Right ExpertNext time the best way to ensure you are getting the best care for your brows is by either finding someone who has the same look you want for your eyebrows and asking them where they go. If you want natural and simple eyebrows don't ask someone with thick and sharp eyebrows, you want someone who you know does your kind of work. The other option is going to a ULTA Benefit brow bar. I know you are sick of hearing about it, however the brow bars are amazing. It is a whole new experience there! They don't just wax you and send you on your way. They start by doing a brow map, making a plan with you, waxing you, then filling in your eyebrows and showing you what tools you might like to use at home.
