Practice makes perfect the skill of tweezing my eyebrows.
The training over the years has taught me the following:
1. An affordable pair of tweezers performs the task as well as an expensive pair.
2. A good pair of tweezers has pinching ends that close up perfectly on each other and has it sides aligned.
3. As such, use a small hair rubber band or a little bit of tape to hold the pinching ends shut for storage if you do not have the Tweezerman.
4. Also, keep the pair of tweezers from dropping as the pinching ends shift once the pair of tweezers knocks hard. The ends will never align again.
5. Straight-cut or slant-cut pinching end is a personal choice that varies with habits and hand motion, not on the recommendation of beauticians, makeup artists, beauty gurus and the likes.
6. Use a handheld magnifying mirror when tweezing eyebrows so that the mirror can be held up as close as needed and angled for maximum comfort.
7. Pain is minimal when tweezing eyebrows.
8. Tweeze the brow hair out from the direction of its growth.
9. Look in the opposite direction of pulling the brow hair. In other words, do not look when plucking.
10. Ease the itch by taking a warm bath before tweezing and moisturising after tweezing.
11. Tweeze the stray brow hairs, not the whole eyebrows. Leave the full eyebrows to professionals such as beauticians or makeup artists to trim, cut, and shave.
Do you tweeze your own eyebrows? What is one challenge that you have overcome after practice?
