Using old tweezers

When you use old tweezers, you’re basically passing on bacteria to your skin. Moreover, tweezing your brows with an old tweezer will only make your brow area red and sensitive. So you need to make sure you keep changing your tweezers every six months.

Missing the top

While you remember to remove the obvious hairs below your brow, don’t forget to remove the tiny hairs on top of your brow. This will give your brows a clean look and help your highlighter makeup accentuate your brows.
