Just make sure to apply the gel in the direction of growth.
A DIY tweezing session can turn out to be your worst nightmare when you end up over plucking your brows. Ending up with bald patches in your brows or making them look too thin can be a very traumatic experience. However, you can take care of this situation by putting your brow pencil to good use. You can use it to fill in the brows, and try to keep everything as natural as possible. Using an angled brush to apply brow powder helps in achieving a softer and natural look.
Filling your brows to perfection can be one of the trickiest things to do, especially if you’re a beginner. Overfilled brows is one mistake most of us girls are guilty of making, and honestly, it can look too dramatic and extra.

If you are someone who likes to bleach their face every now and then, there are chances you might have accidentally ended up bleaching your brows, which can look very funny and scary at the same time. While there is no problem in bleaching your face at home, you just have to be extra careful around your brows so that you don’t end up bleaching them. And even if you end up slightly bleaching them, don’t panic, there’s a way to fix this mishap. The first thing you need to do is apply a layer of Vaseline on the outline of your brows. After you are done doing that, you will have to carefully apply the bear dye to the bleached part of your brow. You can apply some dye to your other brow as well to make sure that both brows look even. After letting the color sit on your brows for some time, you can wipe it off.
