You’re about to leave the house for a big date or an important meeting and, in catching a glance of yourself in the mirror, you notice a big bald patch in the middle of one of your eyebrows. Don’t panic. While eyebrow hair loss can be caused by a number of reasons, including stress, hormone imbalance or illness, patchy brows can easily and quickly be fixed.

Things You'll Need

Groom your brows with an eyebrow comb.

Use a brow wax pencil over both of your eyebrows, to shape the base and groom stray hairs. If you don’t have a brow wax pencil, use petroleum jelly.

Dip a hard-angled brow brush into an eyeshadow color that matches your brows. You can go slightly lighter in color, but not darker, or it makes them look too intense.

Using light outward strokes, paint in the brows. Focus your attention on the bald area, without overdoing it.
