There’s no denying eyebrows can make or break your look! Eyebrow trends come and go, but for the most part having well groomed brows can make all the difference in the message you send when someone approaches you.
In recent years it’s become much trendier for men to go in and have their brows trimmed, groomed, or waxed. Unfortunately there are those cases where the person they went to got over-zealous and tweezed or waxed too much… and well, you get the idea.
Either lady or gentleman, remember the first rule when tweezing and shaping your brows, you can always tweeze more hair later, but if you tweeze too much now you can’t put it back!
The second thing to keep in mind is the old adage, “The right tool for the right job!” If you want to look fierce, using an old beat up pair of cheap tweezers, bad mirrors, and low lighting won’t get you there.
Be sure you invest in a pair of good tweezers. They don’t have to be expensive but I recommend tweezers at a slanted angle or tweezers that come to a point. I recommend Billion Dollar Brows Tweezers, or Tweezerman Slant Tweezers. Either of these tweezers will allow you to precisely remove one hair at a time versus stubby tweezers that may end up pulling out too many hairs at a time! For best results grasp the hair at the base next to your skin and pull outward in the direction of the growth.
Ladies if you’re not sure on what shape to go with, how thick or thin, try using Colorscience Voluptuous Stencil. Use this as a guide to shadow or pencil in you brows. Once completed, trim or tweeze all the brow hairs that fall outside your new brow shape.
When tweezing your brows don’t forget to use a 10X mirror to get you that close up detailed view. Don’t forget to take a moment and step back and view your results in a regular mirror at a distance as you go.
And always remember Eyebrows are Tweezed, Chickens are Plucked!
