Kendall Jenner may have the bold brows of your dreams now, but the model admits that wasn’t always the case. Sharing on several occasions that she was a victim of over-plucked arches, we reached out to the pros for all the info you need on how to (successfully) groom your eyebrows at home.
Kendall Jenner, 20, revealed a surprisingly common beauty regret to Vogue during her “73 Questions” video interview in honor of her September cover. Sharing that plucking her eyebrows too much was the worst beauty trend she’s ever tried, Kendall has worked hard to get her brows back in shape (especially since she’s had to bleach them on more than one occasion for fashion shows!).
To help you avoid Kendall’s fate, we consulted with Marco Ochoa, celeb brow groomer and owner of EcoBrow Studio in Beverly Hills. If the damage is already done, and like Kendall, you’ve over-plucked, Marco says to invest in lavender or rosemary oil. “These are known for speeding the hair growth process,” he tells HollywoodLife. “All you have to do is massage either one into brows every night before you go to bed.”
If you’re shaping your brows at home (or simply cleaning them up in between appointments), Marco stresses that you should “never use a magnifying mirror! They make brows appear larger and can lead to over tweezing,” he goes on to explain.
To keep brows from becoming unruly, you may also want to use a tiny pair of eyebrow shaping scissors. “If you are trimming brows, make sure to brush brows upward using a spoolie brush, and cut only the hairs that go over the natural top line of the eyebrow,” Marco advises.
And of course, it’s always important to have a good brow-filling product on hand. Marco sells six different shades of his brow wax to fill in and define brows.
Have you ever over plucked your eyebrows like Kendall, HollywoodLifers? Will you be trying any of Marco’s tips at home?
