The quick fix: Tarte Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow Powder, $42.
This ultra-fine waterproof powder helps you fake fuller brows in under a minute.
It's made with Amazonian clay, which removes any grease on the surface of your brows so that the coloured pigments stay put for up to 12 hours.
The longer-lasting option: Brow Resurrection 2.4, $1,284.
This semi-permanent service uses a bladelike tool dipped in vegetable dye (reportedly safe for most skin types) to fill out sparse-looking brows.
Thanks to the numbing cream applied beforehand, the treatment is painless.
The results last for up to two years with proper care.

For fine or light brows
The quick fix: Stila Stay All Day Brow Gel & Brow Brush, $48.
This tinted gel helps darken light hair while filling in empty spaces on your arches. The brow gel comes with a double ended brush - use the curved brush to apply the gel, and the spoolie brush to spread out the gel evenly and tame unruly strands.
The longer-lasting option: Brow Tinting, $27.
The brow artist will study your skin tone and hair colour before custom blending a colour to tint your brows.
The waterproof tint lasts up to four weeks and is specially formulated to darken even the finest of hairs.

For full or unruly brows
The quick fix: M.A.C Brow Set in Clear, $31. (photo above)
If your brows don't need much filling in, just use a clear gel to hold stray strands in place. This gel keeps hairs fi rmly in place and doesn't stiffen up or flake throughout the day.
Neat brows that look wellgroomed, even if you've missed your last threading appointment.
The longer-lasting option: Erabrow Design, $50.
The therapist will analyse your face shape and features to fi nd a brow shape that suits you best, before whipping out the tweezers and shaping your brows.
She'll also fill them in with a brow pencil afterwards - so you can leave the salon with perfectly-groomed arches.
