According to the beauty trend and simply what you see when you look in the mirror, brows are a BIG deal! They provide structure, dimension and expression to your face. It is imperative to keep up your brow appearance even if you want to have even the simplest of beauty routines. But in order to do this you must have some proper insight into a simple yet wonderful tool, the tweezer.

“Tweezers are one of the best beauty investments you’ll ever make,” says Hilary Foote, a brow expert, makeup artist and licensed esthetician with almost 20 years of experience. The self-professed Arch Empress swears by her Tweezermans and earned her royal title tweezing over 15,000 pairs of brows in 2011 alone!

If you want to step your tweezer game up, take a look at the tips below.

The Right Shape

Tweezers of both medical and cosmetic grade come in a diversity of shapes, sizes and finishes. Stainless steel is the best option to help avoid infection at the hair follicle.
