Have tweezers taken their toll on your eyebrows? Read on for Savoir Flair’s top five overplucking tips, which will reveal how to transform your barely-there pair to brows rivaling those of Cara Delevingne in a flash.
First things first, don’t panic. There’s always a way to cheat fuller brows, no matter how tweezer-happy you got – you just need to pick the right product and use it properly. Regardless of what you choose to fill them in with, you want the effect to be natural – and not like you have literally just drawn on your eyebrows. To achieve this, draw on your product with short, upward hair-like strokes, following the natural direction of your brow.
Top tip: After filling in your brows, use a subtle highlighter (nothing too shimmery) beneath the arches of your brows and down along the curve before blending it into the top of your cheekbones. This will make them look more defined whilst subtly adding some shape to your features.
Choose Castor Oil
If your eyebrows are looking a little sparse, make castor oil your natural DIY remedy. Bursting with essential fatty acids, it helps encourage hair to grow faster and thicker, making it the perfect pick for getting bigger, more beautiful brows. Every night before bed, apply the oil directly on your eyebrows and massage in for a minute or so before leaving it to work its magic overnight. Repeat for at least six weeks to start seeing and feeling a difference.
Try a Treatment
If you took tweezing a tad too far, then this conditioning treatment is just the ticket. A blend of peptides, nutritive vitamins, and botanicals, it nourishes eyebrows to enhance their appearance whilst encouraging them to grow back thicker and stronger.

Feed Your Brows
To ensure your brows grow back thicker, faster, and more beautiful than ever, you literally need to feed them. “The popular saying about us being what we eat also applies to eyebrows,” says Dr. Ashsen Farooque at the Dubai Cosmetic Surgery clinic.
“If you’re eating an unbalanced diet or lacking key nutritional powerhouses, then you might notice aftereffects such as hair thinning, which also happens to brows. To curb this, you need to add essential fatty acids and vitamins to your diet. You want to include plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, and vitamin D, all of which will get your brows back on fleek.”
For a quick faking fix, book in for eyebrow extensions. Yes, that’s right – extensions are no longer just for your hair or lashes. Sister’s Beauty Lounge offers some of the best, and you can pick from a ‘Brow Touch Up’ if you only want a small area filled in, a ‘Half Brow Treatment’, or even a ‘Full Brow Treatment’ that corrects sparse, overplucked eyebrows and restores fabulous fullness in just 45 minutes.
