For those not blessed with perfect brows, there are tricks and tools. We tested a few and here are our favorites:
Eyebrow Extender by Talika
If over-tweezing has you feeling exposed, try this easy-to-use tool from Talika. The brush-on gel contains tinted hairlike fibers that conform to your sparse brows. We were pleasantly surprised at how it instantly transformed our wimpy brows. It's good for 50 applications. Don't worry if you swipe on a fuller brow than you hoped. It easily disappears with water or eye makeup remover. How full can you get them? People magazine reported earlier this year that makeup artists on the set of TV's Ugly Betty use this tool to achieve Betty's bushy brows. $33 from www.skinterra.com.

Nu Brow by Anastasia
Help jump-start the regrowth of your brows with a touch of this enhancing serum, a colorless, greaseless gel designed to repair and restore puny brows. It's clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as four to six weeks. Better still, it also slows down excess hair loss, leaving behind fuller-looking brows. $35. Available at Sephora/Hurst and www.anastasia.net.
This doubleended pencil from Ramy (pronounced Rah-mee) has two easy-to blend pencil to-powder shades (one light, one dark) and a built-in grooming brush. Use the hues alone or blend them together to achieve your perfect brow color. Both pencil ends also can serve double duty as eyeliner. It's a pencil version of its big sister, the original Miracle Brow compact. $22 from www.ramy.com.
