Learning how to Properly Tweeze & Take Care of Your Eyebrows

Tweezing your eyebrows on your own is an inexpensive way to keep up the maintenance on your eyebrows without spending lots of money. Usually getting your eyebrows waxed or threaded can add up, especially if you do it every week and a half or so. Sometimes it's nice to get them cleaned up via waxing, but if you're on a strict budget or would like to put away some money to spend on your hair or beauty items during the summer, consider tweezing your eyebrows yourself a frugal alternative.

If you decide that tweezing is a good way for you to take care of your eyebrows, there are some tips and suggestions to keep in mind so that you know you are doing it correctly.

When plucking your eyebrows keep in mind that after you are done, your arch should  be the highest at the pupils outer corner. To know exactly where the brow should start, find a pencil and align it straight up from the inner corner of the eye. This will give you a nice line and an excellent guidance reference point as to where to start and stop when plucking your eyebrows.

But wait, there's still more instructions. To know exactly where it should end, holding the pencil diagonally from the outer corner of the eye to the brow bone will also be helpful.

The very first time you pluck your eyebrows, it could be painful. But over time you will get used to it. After two or three times you won't feel the pain anymore and it will get easier each time.

Another thing to keep in mind when you pluck? Your eyebrows should have a shape and the shape should have an arch for attractive looking brows. Ideally, the arch should be over the iris of your eye. But be careful not to overdo it because your eyebrows should come out natural and conform to each of your eyes.

After you are done plucking your eyebrows, it's important to sanitize them. You can do this easily by buying individual Alcohol Swabs. This antiseptic is perfect to use for cleaning your eyebrows. You don't want to get them infected or get ingrown hairs. This is painful and will take away from your beautiful arches and you don't want that to happen!

So now that you're an eyebrow shaping expert, save some money and get plucking!
