Why aren’t my eyebrows going in?

 

They are growing in; you probably just need more time.

If you’ve been plucking and waxing your brows for years it’s likely that it could take anything from 6 months to a year for them to return. In some cases it might even take longer. Hang in there for as long as you can, avoid tweezing close to your brow line and wait it out to give your hairs a fighting chance to grow back.

Also (1) avoid using cosmetic products that could block the follicles around your brow area and prevent new hairs from growing up out, (2) eat foods that are rich in keratin, like eggs, dairy and fish, to encourage healthier growth and (3) apply a growth-promoting serum over your brows once you’ve styled them to give them an extra nudge.

If progress is painfully slow and nothing appears to be growing back after years of over-plucking you might have permanent hair loss. But this doesn’t mean that all hope is lost when it comes to attaining those Audrey Hepburn brows you’ve been longing for! There are lots of trick you can try to create the illusion of a heavier set brow, such as getting your eyebrows tinted. A touch of colour instantly makes the brows look thicker and highlights those sparser and paler hairs that lie along the tail end of the eyebrows. Try colouring your brows once and you’ll be surprised by how much of a thickening difference it can have on a thin brow line.

Once your brows are tinted, go in with an eyebrow pencil to fill in gaps. Our Sculpting Brow Pencil is brilliant for creating fine, hair-like marks that look like the real thing, and the long-lasting formula means they’ll look perfect all day, especially if you use the fixing serum that comes on the other end to keep them in place.
