Ladies, never underestimate the power of your eyebrows, for they can make or break your look. The elusive perfect brows are as classic and timeless as the Little Black Dress. They frame your face, give it structure, and make a stand-alone statement. Now I get that maintaining your brows to achieve that flawless, face-flattering arch can be quite tedious, but it’s also worth it. Here’s how to tweeze your eyebrows at home and get them perfectly shaped whether they’re in need of some tweezing, grooming or filling in.
How To Tweeze Your Eyebrows At Home
Before you pull out your tweezers, you need to understand a few things about your beloved brows. These are a few pointers that you absolutely must keep in mind for perfectly shaped eyebrows.
Understanding which hairs you should tweeze and which ones you shouldn’t touch makes all the difference when it comes to getting the perfect brow shape.
Use a creamy brow pencil and outline an ideal arch once you’ve determined how your brows should curve. This way, you’ve created a stencil, and it’s easier to remove only the hairs that fall above or below it. Also, you won’t get carried away and over-pluck. Knowing your arch limits is also essential. An arch that’s too high will look unnatural.
Choosing the right tweezers makes a tremendous difference in plucking and also in the amount of pain you experience. It’s best to go for sharp, slanted style tweezers because they grab strays quickly and won’t pinch your skin along with the hairs.
Use a regular mirror in a well-lit room and ditch your magnifying mirror. It can make it look like there’s more hair to pluck than there really is. This will inevitably lead to over-plucking.
If you want to cut down the pain of plucking your brow hairs by half or more, the ideal time to tweeze would be after a shower as warm water opens the follicles and softens hairs. This helps them slip out far more easily.
Repeat this mantra. Don’t be over enthusiastic while plucking your eyebrows and don’t do it too often. It takes about six to eight weeks for your brows to reach their full growth potential.
