Step 5

Now that your outline is set, you’re ready to tweeze! Before you get started, apply brow gel and comb your hairs to catch any that are out of place.

Brush the brows before tweezing.

Step 6

Alright, now you can start tweezing. Be sure to always tweeze in the direction your hair naturally grows in (this is a rule of thumb to follow for all hair removal). If your hair is pointing upwards, angle your hand downwards in order to properly tweeze it.

Step 7

Fill in your brows with an eyebrow pencil. Fill your brows in a gradient – light at the beginning, darker near the end. For lighter hair, do light, wispy strokes.
