Creating a too wide eyebrow gapTatiana Ayazo /RD.com
Because most women don’t want a unibrow and risk looking like Bert from Sesame Street, they’ll veer in the opposite direction and remove too many hairs between the eyebrows, which can look unnatural. There’s nothing wrong in wanting to tidy up shaggy ends, but do so with limits in mind. Hold a makeup brush vertically next to your tear ducts. Hands off any hairs from that line toward your eye; the middle area, however, is fair game. Check out these seven tips to help you achieve the perfect eyebrows.
Filling with the wrong color of makeupTatiana Ayazo /RD.com
While your initial instinct may be to match your brows to your current hair color, surprisingly, that’s not always the best choice.

As a solution, aim for a hue that’s two shades lighter than your natural color; this will help define shape without overwhelming the rest of your features.
