Looking great comes with a price. Applying a full face of make-up takes an incredible amount of time and patience and then, to add insult to injury, there is the price of cosmetics. We all have days when it just doesn’t seem worthwhile.
The good news is that one way to look great is by maintaining our eyebrows. It only takes a few minutes a day and the only expense is the cost of a good pair of tweezers.
Many women make the mistake of assuming that all tweezers are created equal. The trick to getting perfect eyebrows is using the perfect pair of tweezers. Your tweezers should be easy to hold; the best tweezers have rubber grips that prevent them from slipping. Your tweezers should also be designed with either a pointed or slanted tips. Tweezers that have a rounded tip have a difficult time grasping individual hairs.
Lighting is an important part of creating a pair of perfect eyebrows. The better the lighting, the less likely you will be to over pluck your eyebrows or having two eyebrows that don’t quite match. The best way to make sure you have sufficient lighting while you are plucking your eyebrows is to invest in a vanity mirror that has lights.
Although there are several women who swear that they are unable to pluck their eyebrows without moisturizing them first, most beauticians advise against this practice. Moisture causes the skin to become porous and this makes if difficult to control the amount of hair you are removing.
The recommendation is that you should hold off on the lotion until you have completed your plucking project. If you have extremely sensitive skin and can not tolerate plucking your eyebrows without moisturizing first, try swabbing them with Anbesol.
The Art of Plucking
When you start plucking your eyebrows, you should always start at the bottom of the eyebrow and work your way up. Don’t get so caught up with the idea of creating the perfect pair of eyebrows that you forget to check your process, make sure you stop every few seconds and check your progress. Be very careful that you don’t over pluck your eyebrows. You can always take more hair off, but it is very difficult to glue a hair back on once it’s been plucked.
