Eyebrows. They really do make a difference to a person’s face. They shape and frame your face, balance your features and enhance your eyes… Yeah, they are all pretty important things. But, we have all been there, to that place. The point of what seems like no return. We have all had an eyebrow disaster.
These days people do seem much more brow conscious. With eyebrow inspo coming from people such as Cara Delevingne and Brooke Shields – type in ‘Famous Eyebrows’ on Google and they pop up straight away – there is a new found love and passion for perfecting those brows.
So, what do you do if you have gone too far? Well we have gone straight to the experts to find out how we can undo the terrible sin of over plucking. The amazing ladies at Medicine of Cosmetics and makeup artist Leah Metaxas may just have the answers, here are their tips to saving your brows:
Got yourself some thin, gappy or or over plucked brows, then this may be your new number one! Feather stroke brow tattoo embroidery is a semi-permanent tattoo technique. So basically that means that fine hair-like strokes are penetrated into the skin for a realistic hair look finish. Not the tattooed eyebrows you might have been picturing! The appearance is completely natural and blends with or without hair along the brow bone. After four weeks, a shadow of colour can also be applied to deepen the colour of the brows. This technique can even be used just to give your brows a new shape!

Sometimes it isn’t the middle that is the issue, it is the arch or the ends… Well this technique using a combination of featherstroke and powder look finish will sort out those problems, pronto!
Now these tips are totally amazing if you aren’t into the daily grind of putting on your makeup and worrying about filling in those brows (really, who can be bothered)? But if you do want to stick with the makeup option then you better at least get it right!
Leah’s tips are:
Fill in those brows with a powder that matches your eyebrow colour. Don’t go too dark or too light, the colour difference will be very obvious. The good thing about powder is that it is more simple to remove, making it easier to remove a little if you feel that you have gone too far.
Looking for something that will last from day to night – then an eyebrow pencil may be your answer. With its longevity comes the necessity to understand how to feather. You need to lightly flick the pencil into your brows, not draw lines heavy handedly. That will end up in that uber obvious ‘drawn on brow’ look. Leah suggests you do a little practicing at home.

Don’t go with the trend
You might love that heave eyebrow look on Cara but does it actually suit your face? Like certain clothes that might not suit you, a certain eyebrow ‘style’ is similar. If your face can’t hack the heavy eyebrow trend, then do what suits you. Your face will look all the better for it.
And there you go… eyebrows saved!
