Eyebrow Shaping Tip #7: Reduce Redness
Immediately after tweezing, gently pat on an over-the-counter cortisone cream like Cortizone-10 Hydratensive Healing Lotion ($20 for 2; to minimize any resulting inflammation.

Eyebrow Shaping Tip #8: Brush Up
Style your arches with a brow brush or a clear, brow-gel wand, coaxing hairs upward at the start of your arch and brushing the rest toward the end of your eye. Try Sonia Kashuk Deluxe Lash and Brow Groomer ($8;

Eyebrow Shaping Tip #9: Fill in the Blanks
Color in sparse spots with a pencil like L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Professional ($10; or a powder. Brunettes should opt for a shade or two lighter than their hair color. Lighter blondes can go for golden shades, while darker blondes call for a taupe-y tone. Redhead? Reach for a warm, brown hue.

Eyebrow Shaping Tip #10: Grow Them In
Overplucked? Refrain from tweezing for at least three weeks so you can see the natural growth pattern and shape. If your brows need a little extra encouragement, brush on a growth serum like RevitaBrow Eyebrow Conditioner ($110 for a 3-month supply; every night.

BONUS Eyebrow Shaping Tip: Get the Tint
While pencils and powders are great for enhancing your arches day to day, consider brow tinting for a more permanent solution. "It saves time in the morning, since you don't have to worry about adding definition with the right pencil or powder daily," says Streicher. "You can just wake up and go." But don't try this at home! The safe way to color your arches, says Streicher, is with the help of a pro brow guru or colorist, who will likely use a semi permanent vegetable dye. Results last about three weeks; expect to pay $15 to $50.
