Plucking perfect eyebrows to achieve that flawless, face-framing arch can be a tedious (and painful!) process. But since fuller, thicker brows are in style, you can (and should) spend much less time with the tweezers.
We all know that perfectly groomed eyebrows balance your features and frame your eyes. Read on for failproof tips on HOW TO TWEEZE YOUR EYEBROWS PERFECTLY?.
Choose the right tweezer
“Opt for a sharp, slanted style,” says Kristie Streicher, a celebrity brow expert at the Warren Tricomi Salon in NYC
The kind of tweezer you opt for has an impact on the process of tweezing and determines how effectively you can shape your brows. If your brows are soft, go for a slanting tweezer. These have an angled edge and are the most widely used tweezers. If your brows are extremely thick, you might need to opt for a thin point tweezer. They have the power to remove a splinter quickly, especially when you have coarse eyebrows. You can also opt for point-slant tip tweezers. These have a slant tips but are also pointed and since they aren’t as sharp as point-tip tweezers, they don’t even hurt much.
Bathe before tweezing
A lukewarm bath before tweezing will ensure that the hair follicles loosen up and it will be easy for you to tweeze out the hair. Oh and this will also make the process of tweezing less painful!
Ease the Plucking Pain
If plucking is too painful or it’s right before your period (when skin is most sensitive), dab on a numbing gel like Orajel-Baby Teething Pain Medicine before you tweeze
Ditch Your Magnifying Mirror
Use a regular use mirror in a well-lit room because magnifying mirror can make it look like there’s more hair to remove than there really is, says Streicher, which can lead to over plucking.
Know Your Arch Limits
Hold a pencil for guidance. Your brows should begin directly above your tear duct, peak in line with the outer side of your iris, and end at a point that falls 45 degrees from the outer corner of your eye.
Note: Be sure not to arch your brows too high or they’ll look unnatural.
Keep a spoolie brush handy
If you ask us we always rely on the spoolie brush, which basically grooms your brow hair and helps you spot uneven and extra hair. All you need to do is brush the brow hair upwards and if there’s any hair that looks out of place, you need to tweeze that out.
Say no to scissors
While tweezing, you might spot uneven hair in between your brows or on the sides. This might make you reach out for a pair of scissors in order to trim the brows. But truth is that this will make your brow growth rough and you’ll end up with bushy brows eventually. Also, if you happen to have unsteady hands, you may even do a bad job at trimming them. Worse, there are chances of hurting yourself too.
Finish out by filling them in
Always envied Cara Delevingne for her bold brows? After having used the tweezer, make sure you fill in empty spaces with a brow pencil. We suggest you use the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil that’ll help you finish out the power brow look.
