How to Tweeze Your Eyebrows


A pair of well-groomed and shaped eyebrows makes all the difference to your look. To get the perfect set of eyebrows, you don’t need to be a professional but you will have to follow some basic rules when you are grooming your eyebrows. This diagram is for tweezing or waxing.

For less painful tweezing, try to tweeze the brows after you have taken a hot shower. Hair follicles open up and hence pulling them out becomes easy and less painful.

Study the shape of your face. Know what type of eyebrows will suit your face, fuller, thicker or thin. The arch is an important part of the brows and care should be taken in shaping them; do not make it too high.

Choose the right tweezers, a slant tip allows precision and helps to avoid accidentally pinching your skin while tweezing. Use a creamy white or black pencil to outline the brows and mark the desired shape.

Shape is the most important feature in the tweezing or waxing process, in the diagram at the top of the post here is what you need to do:

Take a long pencil or a thin brush and line it along the side of the nose, the brow starts right above the tear duct.
Now, take the pencil/brush and with one end on the side of the nose and make a 45 degree angle. The invisible line should go right through the pupil and the spot where the pencil hits the brows will be the highest spot and will determine the arch shape and position. Place one end of the pencil at the nose line and the other end along the outer corner of the eye, both should meet the brow. Keep in mind that perfect looking brows have a slight arch so do not make it unnaturally higher or very arched. Brush the brows upwards with a brow brush/ toothbrush and see if you need to trim them.

Pluck the hair on or outside the line, start from below the brow. Do not pluck the hairs above the brow, they help to give you a nice arch.

Those who have gaps and uneven growth, can fill in using a dark brown eye shadow or use a brow kit to make your brows look more natural. Black looks unnatural, a shade lighter always helps.

Happy tweezing!
