What Goes Wrong: Despite your meticulous efforts, your brows look crooked or too thin.
Beauty Fix: Put the tweezers down immediately! "Tweezers are not a magic wand — the more you tweeze, the less you have to work with," says Joey Healy, an eyebrow specialist in New York City. "It might be torture, but you have to give yourself three to four weeks of regrowth before you can fix your brows." He also warns against trying to balance any problems on one side by taking it out on your good brow: "It's better to have asymmetry than to have both messed up."
You can encourage new growth by using a brow growth serum to speed things along. And, says Healy, you can use a brow powder or pencil to correct a shape or disguise errors.
And next time you work the tweezers, use your bone structure as a guide. The bridge of your nose and the outer edge of your eye offer guides for end points. "Don't use a magnifying mirror," Healy warns. "It doesn't allow you to see the whole picture."
