Getting Ready To Groom Your Eyebrows!
Before taking the tweezers to your eyebrows, a bit of preparation will help to ensure that the job can be tackled quickly and without unnecessary pain, plus, you will be able to get just the right shape. So, this is how you need to start:
Prep up that skin
The softer and suppler your skin, the easier it will be to pluck the hair out. Hence, the best time for the job is right after a shower. If this is not possible, at least wash your face with some warm water and soap. This will clean the skin and open the pores. Alternatively, place a washcloth soaked in hot water on your eyebrows for about 2 minutes.
Choose the shape
A thumb rule is to go for round arches if you have a slim face because these create an illusion of fullness while pointed arches are appropriate for round faces and flat brows are right for long faces. Also, angled brows suit mature skin and hooded lids. Heavier brows work for large eyes and if the brows are naturally set higher on the forehead with a good amount of space between the brow line and the eyes.
Where to start plucking?
There is nothing random about eyebrow shaping. In fact, if you are a newbie, you should let a trained eyebrow grooming technician shape them for you for the first time and then simply pluck out the new growth as soon as the hair become visible or use an eyebrow stencil.
Another way is to use the instructions below. For this, you will need a white eyeliner pencil and a ruler/any thin, long pencil.
- To mark the distance between the eyebrows, hold the ruler straight up with the side touching the outer corner of the nostrils. Imagine a line that goes up to the forehead and mark a dot where it touches the eye brows, repeat on the other side to get the distance between the brows. The hair in between these two points will have to be plucked first.
- For the top of the arch/round, hold the ruler diagonally, and line it up straight from the outer edge of the nostrils to the outer side of the iris and above. The point at which this line cuts the eyebrow should be the peak. Mark this with another white dot.
- Finally, make a line with the ruler that runs from the nostril to the outer corner of the eye. Mark the point at which the ruler intercepts your eyebrow; this will be the end of brow. Now, connect the three dots with a line above and below, while keeping the desired eyebrow thickness in mind. Repeat on the other side.
Get set and pluck!
- Note the direction of hair growth because this is the direction in which you will be pulling.
- Use a brush to comb the eyebrows before you start. Typically, this will immediately show the unruly hair that have to be plucked first.
- If your eyebrows are exceptionally thick or unruly, use some water or eyebrow gel to hold them in place.
- Hold your ëpîler Tweezers like you would hold a pencil, with a slight slant. Start with the angular tip tweezer and begin at the lower edge of the brows.
- Most of the plucking should be done in this area while the upper eye brow line should just be tidied by removing the hair outside the white line.
- Step back after ever few plucks to see how things are going.
- For finer hair, use the pointed tip of your ëpîler
- Make sure that you have the mirror up close when shaping your brows, but don’t bother with a magnifying mirror.
- As a final step, use small scissors to shorten the hair at the beginning of the brow line. Be very careful when doing this as you only have to take a millimeter or two off.
Cleaning your ëpîler Tweezers Before And After Use!
Like any tool that you intend to use on your skin, the tips of the tweezers should be sterilized before you put them to work. After use, wash with some soap under running water, wipe dry before storing. Another way is to dip just the tips in boiling water and hold them in there for about 1 minute. Rubbing alcohol can be used to wipe the tips and the body of the tweezers clean; it will remove both oil and skin debris.
Once completely dry, store your ëpîler Tweezers in the faux leather case.
