Creating the perfect brow begins with the right tweezers. Tweezerman offers the Deluxe Slanted tweezers. The tool is light-weight and well-balanced. The slanted tip allows for easy grabbing of each individual hair.
The first step in brow design is to know where to pluck. Take a straight edge and place it against the bridge of the nose, just above the flare of the nostril. Line the edge against the brow where it begins near the corner of one eye. Hairs on the outside of the line, those above the bridge of the nose, can be tweezed.
Take the same straight edge and move it to the center of the cheek, aligning it outside of the eye’s iris and within the brow’s center. That is the brow’s arch, its highest point. This part of the arch thins gradually from the center of the face.
Move the straight edge to the corner of the nostril and align it with the outside corner of the eye. That is where the eyebrow should end. Take off too much, even a few hairs, and the eyebrow will be too short. Leaving too many creates a droopy look to the eye itself.
Removing hairs above the brow remains controversial. Some people break out here. However, tweezing above the brow often leads to a perfectly groomed brow.
Doing this kind of detailed work alone generally requires a magnifying mirror. However, it is important that one should step back and view one’s work from a distant. Don’t make the magnifying mirror a habit. Getting carried away with a pair of tweezers can leave a person with no eyebrow. Sometimes, eyebrows do not grow back from an over-plucking. Generally, a hair that is plucked today, takes about two weeks to grow back.
