It takes effort to achieve a youthful model look. Some of us will have to work a little harder than others to achieve it. With the proper instructions and the proper tools we can achieve the perfect eyebrows. What works for one person is not always going to work for another person. Eyebrows, like people, come in different sizes and shapes. What we need to do is create the perfect eyebrows that will work with the shape of our face. A lot of times shaping the eyebrows can really change our look. I remember when I was in high school a girl asked me, “How do you get your eyebrows to look so perfect?” I felt I could share my knowledge with you on how to achieve the perfect eyebrows that will work for you. This article serves as a guide on eyebrow tweezers.
There are many different types of eyebrow tweezers
I use the Revlon pointed tip deluxe tweezers. They are now called the Revlon splinter tweezers. Revlon also has a Spotlight LED Slanted Tweezers. Revlon tweezers can be purchased at stores like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Target. They sell for about $2.24 to $9.97. I have read a lot of good reviews for this product on the Walmart website.

Rubis Swiss Tweeze Tweezers are feather light and perforated for a non-slip grip. The Rubis Swiss Tweezers are expensive and cost almost $40. Reviews for this product are really good on the Folica website.

LED Lighted Eyebrow Tweezers come with a light and finger grips. These tweezers come with a case and an extra battery. The case does not always stay closed. The original price is $6.95 but I have seen them on sale for $4. You can find them online at BH Cosmetics. The price is affordable and the reviews are good for this product.

Tweezerman’s stainless steel slant, mini slant and tweezerette tweezers use to be the best when they were made in Italy and owned by Dal LaMagna. He sold the company to J.A. Henckels in 2004 and now they are made in India. The new owner, Henckels, has really cheapened the product. These tweezers cost $10 to $20 before shipping is added. There are good and bad reviews about these tweezers on Amazon.

Eyebrow Tweezers that Pluck Perfectly
I could not find the perfect eyebrow tweezers. There are good and bad reviews for most of the eyebrow tweezers on the market. We all come in different sizes and shapes and so do our eyebrows. Tweezing our eyebrows can change the whole look of our face. One tip to remember is that our eyebrows should begin directly above the tear duct and end 45 degrees from the outer corner of our eyes. If you have large eyes you might want to wear thicker eyebrows. If you have small eyes you may want to wear thinner eyebrows. Looking beautiful takes time. If you do anything in a hurry it will eventually look like it.

Products Proven to Be the Most Efficient for Shaping the Perfect Brow
Make sure your lighting is very good. I worked at a TV station and I have seen female anchors tweezing their eyebrows right before they go on the air. The lighting at the anchor desk is very bright.
This is the routine I use when I tweeze my eyebrows. I wash my face before I begin tweezing my eyebrows to remove any facial oils. It is hard to tweeze your eyebrows without a clean face. Here is a list of the products I use: a Revlon pointed tip deluxe tweezers, Neutrogena 2 oz. oil-absorbing natural clay acne mask, natural bathroom lighting, an eyebrow brush, manicure scissors and a bathroom mirror. You can use tissue to put the tweezed hairs on and to wipe the tears. Tweezing can cause tears and it can make you sneeze.
How to Tweeze Even the Finest Eyebrow Hairs
I use the Neutrogena clay mask to put on in the middle between my eyebrows. I let the clay mask dry so that I can see the hairs I could not see but I could feel. Then I tweeze the hairs in the clay mask. I discovered this technique because I used the Neutrogena clay mask as a regular product to clean my face. When the clay mask dried I could see the finest and lightest colored hairs. Eventually I only used the clay mask between my eyes when I needed to tweeze the hairs that I could not see but I could feel. I suggest only letting the clay mask dry between your eyes for a minute, just long enough for the clay mask to dry. If you leave the clay mask on for a long time it will over dry causing flaking and you will not be able to see the fine hairs.
Products Not Worth Purchasing
Do not use a magnifying glass when tweezing your eyebrows. The magnifying glass will make it look like you have more hairs than you do and you will over tweeze. Thick eyebrows are in.
Think twice about waxing. I have seen so many people over wax their eyebrows. When you keep waxing your eyebrows they stop growing. If your eyebrows have been waxed too thin then you are stuck. The only way to fix over waxed eyebrows is to draw them in every day or have them tattooed on. You only get three hairs in each hair follicle. When they are gone that is it. If you do over pluck your eyebrows you will need to use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the holes.
Do not stencil in your eyebrows. Eyebrows need to be shaped to the individuals face. You cannot get that with a stencil.
Threading your eyebrows is removing hair using a string. It is supposed to be good for sensitive and thin skin. I have never tried the threading method and it does not look like something that I would ever try. For those of you who might want to try to thread your eyebrows I have included a link on How to Thread Your Eyebrows at the end of this article.
Some Things Consumers Should Look for in a Pair of Tweezers
Reviews say that slant tweezers are the best choice and they get the fine hairs. I do not like the slant tweezers. The slant tweezers have a tendency to tweeze extra hairs that you do not mean to tweeze. You have three hairs in each hair follicle. As you tweeze your eyebrows year after year eventually hair follicles quit producing hairs. If you see a bulb at the end of a hair you tweezed that means you have one less hair in that hair follicle. I like to use Revlon Tweezers.
During high school I wore thin eyebrows. That was the style back then. In my twenty’s I quit tweezing my eyebrows for about six weeks. I let them grow back so I could reshape them and wear them thicker.
Your skin is most sensitive during your period. The best time to tweeze your eyebrows is one week after your period starts. That is when your skin is least sensitive.
Women are not the only ones who have to tweeze their eye brows. Some men have to tweeze their eyebrows. When men go through puberty some of them discover that they have one eyebrow above their eyes. If a man cleans up the hairs between his eyebrows he will look more distinguished.
