3 speedy solutions to your biggest brow problems

 
Whether you went overboard with the tweezing or walked outta the salon with pink patches above your eyes, we’ve got quick fixes for common enemies of awesome arches.
 
The Prob: The urge to keep plucking.
Quick Fix: Once you’re two inches away from the mirror, it’s easy to go overboard and say “just one more hair...ten times” The next thing ya know, you’re stuck with two pencil drawings above your eyes. Avoid the urge by only plucking weekly (say, on Friday night). Otherwise, leave your tweezers in your beauty bag. And remember: natural-looking eyebrows are in, so only pluck stray hairs—not your entire arch.

The Prob: Tell-tale pink spots from waxing.
Quick Fix: Yanking hair off facial skin can leave reddish-pink patches behind. To soothe, apply a cold compress for a few minutes. Then, dab on a soothing product (avoid harsh chemicals on your sensitive skin, OK?). We like Clean + Easy Azulene Oil ($7, sallybeauty.com)
 
The Prob: Uh-oh. You (or your esthetician) was a little overzealous.
Over-plucking or waxing happens to the best of us. Use a brow pencil that matches (or is slightly lighter) than your arches to lightly fill a sparse patch. Don’t got all sortsa artistic on your face and completely redraw what’s missing. What you fill in should be light ‘n’ natural. Take a step back and look after every couple flicks of the pencil to ensure you’re spot-on. Try Shobha Brow Pencil ($16, myshobha.com)
