Beauty 911: Quick Fixes

Emergency #1: Over-plucked Brows

Fill in your brows with a brow pencil slightly lighter than your hair so that your brows look natural until they grow back. After penciling them in, fill in gaps with brow powder to soften your eyebrows and make them look more natural.

Emergency #2: Dark Circles

  1. Cover them with a creamy emollient concealer. The skin under your eyes is thinner than most of your skin, and it has fewer oil-producing glands you need a moisturizing cover-up to make it go on smoothly and adhere well.
  2. Apply a thin layer of concealer over the entire undereye area, using a concealer brush.
  3. Layer on a second coat to lighten the darkness. Concentrate on the darkest part (often the inner corner to the middle of the eye), and blend it up into the lash line.
  4. To keep concealer from slipping into the crevices of skin, set it with powder before starting on the other eye.

Emergency #3: Puffy Eyes

Place cold cotton balls or a cold gel eye mask over closed eyes for 10 minutes. This will drain accumulated fluids and reduce swelling. If you prefer, place cucumber slices on closed eyes for 10 minutes. You can also wet chamomile tea bags, put them in the refrigerator until cold, and use them as a compress.

  1. Thanks for the tips! I usually sleep 6-7 hours so my eyes are puffy sometimes! I'll try some of your ideas next time :) xx
