Guide To growing eyebrows

Let’s face it, nobody really wants sparse eyelashes and bald spots in their eyebrow. But how can you grow back your eyelashes and brows?

Well, there’s a few options…

You might have heard about the lash and brow serums on the market. They’re clinically tested and proven to deliver results, meaning you can grow back those missing hairs with minimal effort. They vary in price from £24.95 for a 12 month supply, right up to £99 for a 6 month supply. And the truth is you don’t have to spend hundreds on growing back your lashes and brows – both offer the same results.

And, if you’d prefer, there’s always the DIY option – you can create your own serum. Granted, it’s not as easy as just buying a ready-made serum, but if you’re a keen DIY-er, you may prefer it.

If you’re interested, there are a couple of methods. Well-known beauty YouTubers Rclbeauty101 and Carli Bybel have their own preferred serum recipes. Rclbeauty101 prefers to use equal parts Vitamin E oil, castor oil, and coconut oil, whereas Carli Bybel opts for equal measures of castor oil and coconut oil, with a hint of avocado oil too.

Both advise rubbing a small amount into your lash line and eyebrows, and Carli Bybel says she prefers to use a spooly/clean mascara brush to really coat her lashes.

Whether you buy a serum or make your own, the minimum application is twice a week. But if you’d like to see results quicker, you can apply it every night. It’s down to your personal preference.

Finally, there’s the tried and tested method simply filling in your sparse areas. When it comes to your eyebrows, there’s a whole host of products available – from brow pomades to gels, powders to mascaras, you’re bound to find an option you prefer. There’s some great drugstore options available too, so you don’t have to spend a lot of money getting the best results.

However, if you’re struggling with shaping your brows, why not try eyebrow stencils? They make sure you get the brow shape you’re looking for, time and time again. You can either use them to fully fill in your brow with a powder (be careful to use a light touch and brush through your eyebrows with a spooly after to get a natural finish), or to create the outline, ready for you to fill in using a gel or pencil.

For your eyelashes, there are a number of mascaras available that have added fibres in. These help to lengthen and add volume to your lashes. There’s no extra steps to your make up routine either, simply coat your lashes like you would a normal mascara.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll get those brows and lashes looking great in no time!
