Fixing big eyebrows involves trimming and plucking rogue hairs, shaping the brows into a flattering arch and filling them in with an eyebrow pencil. The required supplies are tweezers, nail scissors, an eyebrow pencil, a mirror, a toothbrush and clear brow gel. This procedure takes about 10 minutes and works best for women.

  1. Brush your brows

    Gently brush your brows with a clean, dry toothbrush. Brush the hairs straight up.

  2. Trim long hairs

    Carefully trim any hairs that stick out or are significantly longer than the surrounding hairs.

  3. Pluck rogue hairs

    Pluck hairs growing below your brow bone. If you have eyebrow hairs growing between your brows, pluck those also. Pluck one hair at a time. Clamp the tweezers at the base of each hair, and pull horizontally.

  4. Apply eyebrow makeup

    Fill in your brows with an eyebrow pencil that matches your hair color. Make short, light strokes, and follow the natural arch of your eyebrows.

  5. Set your brows with gel

    Seal your brows with a thin layer of clear brow gel. Use light brush strokes to guide the hairs up and out. Try to keep the brush away from your skin so you do not smear the makeup.

  6. Examine your brows

    Examine your brows, and fill in blank spots with the eyebrow pencil.
