Crazy Sexy Confident: How To Win At The Brow Game

We’ve all over-plucked at one time or another. These tricks will get you into shape.


Believe it or not, gorgeous brows aren’t only a result of hitting the genetic lottery. When it comes to brow maintenance, there’s a reason so many people leave it up to the pros. After all, the full process involves dodging a minefield of hazards like over-plucking and over-filling, not to mention selecting the wrong products. So, to help us craft exquisite Zendaya-esque brows, we spoke to local beauty gurus on all things brows.


Damage Control

It usually takes about three to four weeks for eyebrows to grow back from a shaping, good or bad. But, if you have thin brows, it can take up to three months to get back to square one. Stop tweezing and give your brows a chance to grow back. Seeing scary patches of skin? Don’t panic, it takes consistent over-plucking, waxing or threading to do permanent damage. If your brows need a little extra encouragement, Nisha Seneviratne recommends brushing on some castor or coconut oil every night. You’ll notice your hairs growing out quite quickly.

Shape Up

“Great brows aren’t just about thickness, you have to work the shape. I recommend that people take into account their overall face shape and natural brow growth pattern, rather than forcing brows into a harsh, specific shape,” says Namini, resident brow expert at Chopping Block.  Brows will naturally reveal their ideal shape when they haven’t been plucked for at least six to eight weeks. It should follow your bone structure, with the arch peaking right where your brow bone protrudes the most.

Go Sleek

“For a sexy, fuller look, use a pencil or gel, which lasts longer than powders. Choose a colour that’s two shades lighter than your eyebrow hair and brush the product through to blend and remove any excess,” suggests Namini. “I usually start filling in my brows in the arch, then lightly wherever else needed. I also love using a brow brush because it comes in handy when you’ve used too much product and want to soften the look.”
