How to properly pluck your eyebrows yourself?

Tweezing your eyebrows can be a complex and delicate task. It is for this reason that it is strongly recommended to acquire a certain amount of know-how before embarking on this type of hair removal alone.

Plucking your eyebrows yourself is entirely possible, even if it requires a certain dexterity, which is not always easy to master the first time. This is also why many women will first glean valuable advice from a professional beautician before embarking on this adventure alone. For those who feel ready to give it a try, here are some helpful tips and tricks to help you pluck your eyebrows to perfection.

How to choose the right hair removal method for plucking your eyebrows?

To remove hair from this sensitive area of ​​the face, several techniques can be used. Generally, hair removal with tweezers remains the essential and most used method. However, it is also possible to pluck your eyebrows with wax (hot or cold), or with threading. These techniques sometimes used in institutes, however, require a certain amount of know-how to be truly effective.

For a first solo hair removal, it is therefore strongly recommended to opt for tweezers. This utensil is easier to handle and allows greater precision.

What accessories are essential for successful eyebrow waxing?

For successful hair removal, you will need at least the following accessories:

  • tweezers (preferably beveled),
  • an eyebrow pencil ,
  • a brush to clean and brush your eyebrows

Which eyebrow shapes should you prefer?

Each eye shape is unique, which is why the waxing of your eyebrows must be tailor-made according to the particularities of the lines of your eyebrow arches.

The 3 essential landmarks

To know how to define the beginning and end of your eyebrow, and how to properly draw its arch, start by identifying the 3 key points of your eyebrow arches:

  • the head of the eyebrow : To determine the perfect point where the head of your eyebrow should begin, take a pencil and place it between your nostril and the inner corner of your eye. Follow this guideline until it crosses your eyebrow.
  • the arch : To find the ideal place where your eyebrow should arch, take your pencil again and rotate it so that it forms a line that passes both your nostril and the center of your eye. Then go up this imaginary line to determine precisely the point at which your eyebrow should ideally arch.
  • the tail of the eyebrow : this point usually corresponds to the line which passes through the line which runs along your nostril and the outer corner of your eye.
  • To be more precise, you can mark these 3 points with an eyebrow pencil and then proceed to waxing while maintaining the eyebrow thickness you want.

Know the shape of eyebrows that will suit you best

Eyebrows can naturally have several shapes. Depending on the type of your face, removing hair in a certain way can help you harmonize the features of your figure.

For example, if you have a rectangular or square face, very accentuated eyebrows at the arch level are preferred. On the other hand, if you have a rounder face, straight eyebrows will be more harmonious. As for those who have a rather oval face, rounded eyebrows will certainly be the option to consider.

What steps should you take before and after eyebrow waxing?

Even though eyebrow waxing is not very difficult to perform, certain key steps should not be overlooked.

Clean your equipment thoroughly

Before any hair removal, disinfect your tweezers, as well as the area to be treated. Little tip, to suffer less during hair removal, you can apply a pre-depilatory cream to make the skin more supple and less sensitive to repeated actions of the tweezers.

Taking care of your eyebrow skin

A few days before waxing, exfoliate your eyebrows. This tip will allow you to remove all dead skin and thus avoid ingrown hairs, which often form unsightly red dots following hair removal.

Apply moisturizer after hair removal

Especially if you have used wax, do not hesitate to apply a moisturizer to the waxed area. This will give you more comfort and allow your skin to recover more quickly.

Is salon hair removal safer?

Plucking your eyebrows in a salon rather than doing it alone at home is the option favored by the majority of women. Indeed, hair removal is an act that must be carried out with precision. Additionally, even the slightest mistake is usually very visible and can take time to correct. Redrawing your eyebrows in an institute is therefore safer and allows you to benefit from the advice of an expert in the field.
