Over-plucking your brows isn't the end of the world!Many women have made the mistake of over-plucking their eyebrows. Sometimes you just happen to find the perfect lighting and all of those little stray hairs are exposed – which then leads to intensive shaping – which can then result in sparse brows. It's not the end of the world, however.

Cosmopolitan magazine has a few tips for fixing up over-plucked brows, and all it takes is a good brow pencil, a bit of powder and a clean mascara brush before your eyebrows look full again.

First, pick out a pencil shade that perfectly matches your brows. Too dark or too light will look obvious, so take your time finding the right shade of Too Faced – Brownie Eye Brow Pencil. When you're applying, make short strokes that mimic the look of your natural brow hairs. Be sure to fill in your entire brow – not just the bare areas. A bit of Paula Dorf – 2 + 1 for Brows will make them look softer.

Finally, use a clean mascara wand to feather your lashes and get rid of any harsh pencil lines. Comb them up and out for the most natural look.
