How To Tweeze Your Eyebrows Like A Pro
Getting your eyebrows done professionally can be costly and time consuming. If you’re one of the many women who shies away from doing your own brows because you feel that you’re not good at it there are some simple steps that can help you to get perfect looking brows in a short amount of time and with much less frustration. Here’s what you have to do.
1.Get a pair of quality tweezers from a brand that is known and trusted by your friends and throw out your old ones. It’s essential that you work with the best possible tools so that you get the best results because they will give you a firmer grip and better results.
2.You should also invest in a quality lighted mirror. This way you’ll be able to see each and every hair so that you can get a better idea of which ones should be removed and which ones you need to stay. The magnification will make the process much easier on your eyes so that you’ll be able to work faster and more efficiently.
3.Now that you’re about ready to start tweezing you should start by applying some clear mascara such as Tweezerman’s Browmousse onto your brow area. This will help to hold the hairs in place so that you can see which ones are too long and need to be trimmed as well as which hairs can be considered to be sparse hairs and should be removed. In other words, you’ll get a much cleaner looking brow line.
4.Use a brow brush to brush your eye brows and use your tweezers to remove the strays that are resting above, below and to the sides of your eyebrows.
5.Brush your brows upwards so that the longer hairs stand up. Using brow shaping scissors cut the hair carefully so that they line up with the border of the brow line.
6.Remove the clear mascara, brush your eyebrows one more time and reapply the clear mascara if you want to.
Here are a few additional pro tweezing tips.
- Don’t go too thin with your brows or you may regret it later on when they don’t grow out again or when your taste changes.
- Following your natural brow line will ensure a lot less upkeep later on.
- Take your time when tweezing your brows so that you don’t accidentally remove hairs that you want. Remember the hairs at the border of your eye brow should look clean and if they look jagged they will look messy.
- Tweezing more than one hair at a time can be painful and can cause you to remove hairs that you need to keep in place so stay with one hair at a time.
Good luck and stay beautiful.
