We’ve all gotten sucked in to the magnifying mirror. The temptation factor is undeniably very high, especially when you’re holding a pair of tweezers. Getting up close and personal with your brows is fine — up to a point. Until you’ve tweezed your brows to what you thought was perfection, only to realize your brows are far too thin.
Avoid the temptation to over-tweeze by remembering this simple tip next time you pick up those tweezers: Step back from the mirror every third hair and alternate the eyebrow you’re working on when you do so.
This seemingly minor tip actually makes a major difference, helping you see your brows as whole — not just as individual hairs — and ensuring you don’t tweeze too much from one eyebrow before you’ve tackled the other.
Do you shape your own brows or go to a professional? Let us know in the comments.
