Eyebrow Plucking - Pluck your Eyebrows


Eyebrows should have an arch: in nature, it's rarely where it should be, which is a frustrating commentary on standards of beauty. Ideally, the arch happens over the iris, the colored part of your eye. Eyebrow plucking is an art. There is skill, patience and creativity involved in it. Eyebrow Plucking can make your eyes look larger and give your face a clean, polished look.

Eyebrow plucking tips to help you achieve beautiful eyebrows. It all starts with a good tweezer and an idea of what brow shape fits your face. Eyebrow plucking should ideally be timed just before hitting the sack as the sleep time that follows allows any subsequent redness to disappear overnight. Slant edge tweezers, which grip hairs easily, are best for shaping brows while combing hairs one way, then the other, helps remove loose strands. When plucking, pluck the stray hair underneath the eyebrow - not above the eyebrow.

How to Pluck your eyebrows

Sit near a window to get the best light.

Wash the area thoroughly so it's not oily.

Decide what shape you want for your eyebrows.

For styles change flip through fashion magazines for ideas.

Draw in a brow line on your eyebrow with a brow pencil to serve as a guide.

Follow the brow's natural line by conforming to the curve of your upper eyelid.

Pull the skin at the outer end of the eyebrow taut against the brow bone, and use the brow bone as an additional guide.

Use a pair of angled eyebrow tweezers to pluck the hairs below the brow; never shape your brow by plucking above it.

Pluck only one hair at a time. Start plucking in the middle of the eyebrow and pluck toward the outer end; then go back to the middle and pluck toward the nose.

Your brows should extend a little beyond each corner of your eye.

Use a cotton ball or pad soaked in pure tea tree oil or witch hazel to soothe your plucked brows.
