1. For a less painful experience, tweeze brows after a bath or shower when skin is supple.
2. Brush eyebrows upward and outward. Pluck hairs that fall outside the natural line of the brow.
3. Always work in natural light.
4. Pluck a few hairs from one brow, then stop and pluck a few from the other. This ensures that you can get an even shape on both.
5. Use a pencil, powder or gel to accentuate the shape, or to fill in any sparse areas.
6. Stick with products that are within one shade of your natural brow colour. If you have light hair, go one shade darker; if you have dark hair go one shade lighter.
7. A dull pencil instead of a sharpened one will blend more easily into your brows.
8. Use a soft wire brush, often found on the end of an eyebrow pencil, to blend the colour and define the shape.
9. A clear gel or wax pencil will help keep your shape in place, and prevent any product from smudging.
