Plucking your eyebrows is a pretty simple job, once you have the perfect eyebrow shape (preferably shaped by a professional) it’s just a case on keeping on top of the hairs as they grow back.
Here are three simple steps on how to how to pluck your eyebrows, finding where your brows should start, end and where the high point or arch should be:
How to Pluck Your Eyebrows
- Hold a pencil parallel to the side or your nose to find where your brows should start
- Tilting the pencil diagonal from the nostril and along the edge of the eye will give you the point where the brow should end
- To find where the highest point of where your brow should arch hold the pencil to the outside edge of the iris (coloured part) of the eye
To pluck brows you will need a mirror, some bright or natural light and a pair of good quality slanted tweezers. Tweeze out any hairs that are outside of your shapely brows, make sure to only pluck out one or two hair at a time as over plucking can’t be corrected as easily you may think, eyebrows take longer to grow back then any other hair on the body. When plucking you can hold skin taught with your fingers, this will ensure you can pick out the specific hairs you want to. Remember it’s always best to tweeze hair against the hair growth, this will make sure the root is pulled out with the hair and will
mean less plucking in the future. When you have finished preening yourself applying a moisturizer containing aloe vera will reduce any redness and soothe them.
