How to get thicker eyebrows in six simple steps

We break down how to let your brows achieve their “full” potential

How to get thicker eyebrows

The big brow trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon, so how to get thicker eyebrows is the question on everyone’s lips. So, what do you need to know?

First things first, step away from the tweezers. There’s grooming your eyebrows to find the perfect shape for your face, and then there’s plucking your eyebrows within an inch of their lives.

Whether you’re a tweezer user, waxer or threader, you may want to reconsider the strength of light you use when you’re grooming your brows. According to experts, brows are best tended to in soft dull lighting – too much light encourages you to over pluck.

When it comes to the best tools for the job, we love Rubis’ Classic Slant Tweezers (£21.50, Cult Beauty), which can extract even the thinnest and shortest hairs. These are literally used to make Rolex watches, so you know they’re good.

Keep scrolling for the best tips on how to get thicker eyebrows.

How to get thicker eyebrows with Vaseline

In order for your hair to grow, it needs to be in an environment that promotes hair growth. This means your skin needs to be well hydrated and nourished.

Enter Vaseline (£2.99, Boots). Known to create a sealing barrier, this jelly also locks in moisture to help speed up your skin’s natural recovery process. In fact, rumour has it that Marilyn Monroe used to employ Vaseline as her skin saviour and ended up with quite long facial hair; proof that it helps hair grow.

Simply clean and dry the area and apply Vaseline over your brows three to four times a day.

How to get thicker eyebrows with oil

Oil promotes hair growth much like Vaseline, by creating a barrier that locks in moisture. But, it also increases circulation while stimulating cellular metabolism. This, in turn, promotes hair growth. Any oil can be used, so try olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, even castor oil. Simply apply on your brows before you go to bed and let it go to work.

How to get thicker eyebrows using eyebrow growth serum

If you want to get really clinical, apply a brow growth serum daily. Elizabeth Arden’s Brow Enhancing Serum (£90, Lookfantastic)contains an exclusive triple peptide complex, boosted by vitamins, botanicals and hair conditioners, to support your hair’s natural renewal cycle. Within two weeks, you’ll notice a difference in the amount and strength of your brow hair.

Similarly, RapidBrow Enhancing Serum (£29.82, Amazon) is boosted with a unique blend of fortifying proteins, stimulating peptides and nourishing ingredients designed to help condition, restore and repair the appearance of your eyebrows in 60 days.

How to get thicker eyebrows with make-up

First things first, work out the best eyebrow shape for your face. Then, outline with an eyebrow pencil, like Benefit’s Precisely My Brow (£17.45, Fabled), by drawing a line underneath your brow. Using the same pencil, fill in sparse areas with small hair-like flicks.

Then, use an angled brush and a similarly coloured pressed powder to define the shape of your brows. Try to not fill in the inside corners of your brows too much, or make the end points too harsh.

Finally, brush through with a spoolie to pick up any excess powder, blend lines and create a natural look. Help define with a concealer on the underneath of your arch. Read our guide to the best eyebrow makeup for more of the best products for the job.

How to grow out your eyebrows

Brows grow in a three to four month cycle, so step away from the tweezers for at least 12 weeks. It might feel a bit weird at first, but stick it out.

Groom them daily with a spoolie to promote growth in the right direction. Then, after 12 weeks, you can pluck the ones that aren’t anywhere near your brow line. But leave any that are close to that area alone – even if you think you’ll pull them out later. Your brow hairs will then start to come in strong around the four month mark.

Taking Steps to Be an Athlete for Life

Kevin McManigal’s active lifestyle is measured by many milestones … starting from the time Bill Bowerman, the famed founder of Nike, specially made a pair of shoes for Kevin and his teammates on the South Eugene High School track team. (They won the state championship.)

In the years since, the now 60-year-old Kaiser Permanente nurse has summitted just about every Pacific Northwest peak, cycled and run tens of thousands of miles, and explored wilderness trails on horseback, cross country skis, and foot.

Bump in the road

Then came the proverbial “bump in the road.” He hiked deep into the Wallowa Mountains in northeastern Oregon, and came out a week later, hobbling in pain.

Over the next several months, he tried ignoring the pain. He ran less and cycled more. He saw an orthopedic surgeon at Kaiser Westside Medical Center, where an X-ray revealed that cartilage — the firm, rubbery material that serves as a “shock absorber” — had deteriorated in his right knee.

“The pain was constant and became more intense over time,” he says. “It felt like my knee would break, and I would collapse.” He thought that he was “too young and active” to be having joint issues, but he has since learned that it can happen to athletes and others at just about any age in their adult lives.

He wore a brace and walked with a cane.

“It was difficult, but you manage and adapt,” says Kevin, who works in the Medical Procedures Unit at Westside. But when it became too much to endure, he consulted with orthopedic specialists and scheduled surgery for last April.

Just do it

“My surgeon (Erik Kroger, MD), thought that I might only need a half-knee replacement, but he wouldn’t be sure until he actually began the operation. I was confident that he would take excellent care of me, so I told him to ‘Just do it.’”

After total joint replacement, Kevin spent one night in the hospital, and continued his recovery at home. He describes the entire experience from pre-op through recovery “as smooth as can be.” He credits the knee surgery, as well as two previous hand surgeries at Kaiser Permanente, with saving his career and ability to thrive: “I would be disabled now, if not for the excellent care I’ve received. I’d be working at a desk, instead of doing what I love – taking care of patients at the bedside,” said the 32-year Kaiser Permanente employee.

Riding high

Five months following surgery, Kevin experienced another milestone. He participated in Cycle Oregon, an ambitious bike ride that climbs 28,000 feet in elevation through northeastern Oregon. On the last day of the weeklong event, Kevin happened to chat with Eric Bosworth, MD, who cycled the course and months earlier, consulted on Kevin’s case.

Kevin’s conversation with the Kaiser Permanente orthopedic surgeon went like this:

Dr. Bosworth: “I saw you limping on the job all last year … and you’re here at Cycle Oregon?”
Kevin: “Yes, I completed all 400 miles!”
Dr. Bosworth: “You did the whole tour after having had knee replacement surgery in April?”
Kevin: “Yes, that’s right.”
Dr. Bosworth: “That’s great – but did you check with your ortho surgeon before you did this?”
Kevin: “No, because my knee was/is feeling great — and I needed the bicycle ride!”
Dr. Bosworth: “I can understand that. I’m an athlete, too.”

The next milestone for Kevin? He’s planning a multi-day canoeing and hiking trip in Canada and a dozen other adventures, thanks to his new knee and lifelong passion for staying active.

Jennifer Garner Is All Smiles as She Steps Out in N.Y.C for the First Time Amid New Romance

Jennifer Garner was all smiles strolling through the Big Apple.

The 46-year-old actress stepped out on Thursday in New York City for the Fast Company Innovation Festival in which she spoke about her baby food company Once Upon a Farm. This is her first public appearance after news broke that she is “casually dating” CaliGroup CEO John Miller.

Garner looked chic in a blue-green coat, white scarf and strappy blue heels as she bundled up against the city’s cool weather.

A source told PEOPLE on Thursday that “dating is just a natural step” for Garner after finalizing her divorce from Ben Affleck.

“Although the divorce was just finalized, Jen has considered herself single for a long time,” the insider said. “Jen will always care about Ben and help him be the best dad. She was very ready to move on though.”

“She seems very excited about the future and is in a great place both personally and professionally,” the source added.

On Thursday, a different source told PEOPLE Garner and Miller, 40, were “casually dating but it’s not serious.”

“He hasn’t met her kids,” the insider added.

Garner shares Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 with Affleck.

The friendly exes have continued to spend time as a family and co-parent after they officially filed for divorce almost two years after announcing their separation in 2015. They took the kids to see Hello, Dolly! on Broadway in mid-July, starring family friend Victor Garber, and spent Easter together in Hawaii where Affleck was filming.

Miller was also previously married before filing for divorce from celebrity violinist Caroline Campbell in 2011.

He and Campbell are parents to two school-age children, a daughter and a son. The businessman is CEO and chairman of holding company CaliGroup. The company owns the CaliBurger chain, which boasts a special robotics technique that flips burger patties.

High society: El Alto, Bolivia, steps into the spotlight

After landing at El Alto, canny travellers don’t go straight to La Paz but soak up the exuberant architecture, culture and women’s projects of Bolivia’s second city

Most travellers never give El Alto a second thought. Bolivia’s second city, home to the highest international airport in South America (and fifth-highest in the world) at 4,061 metres, it is a place visitors fly into before being whisked to La Paz, the de facto capital, 15km away and 421 metres lower.

Yet, El Alto is emerging from the shadow of its neighbour, thanks to its fantastic rebel architecture, new cable car routes, emerging culinary credentials and the trailblazing input of its first female mayor, Soledad Chapetón. It’s also proudly championing the Fighting Cholitas, female wrestlers who perform regularly at its sports centre, called El Multifuncional .

Sage’s Baby Steps Toward Health

Progress is measured in baby steps in the neonatal intensive care unit at Kaiser Permanente’s Downey Medical Center, where babies who need specialized support receive care.

That’s where Sage Lee Carlisle spent the first 7 months of his life, when he was born nearly 4 months early. Sage weighed just 1 pound and 11 ounces, and as his health improved, his parents and care team celebrated each milestone.

“Just the other day, we were able to walk away from the bed without any ports and hold him like a normal baby. That was awesome,” said his mom, Crystal.

A team of experts

Sage’s care team included neonatologists, respiratory therapists, NICU nurses, neonatal nurse practitioners and other specialists. They worked together to care for the tiny infant around the clock.

“When we couldn’t be here, (we knew) he was in good hands,” said Sage’s dad, Scottie. “I feel blessed.”
