What's the best way to teach a teen to pluck her eyebrows correctly?

Watch the Eyebrows

Before your teen attempts to tweeze for the first time, make sure she knows the proper plucking methods. You don't want overplucked eyebrows that are too thin or spotty in certain areas. Here is the proper tweezing guidelines:

  1. Hold an eye liner pencil along the sides of the nose running vertical up and down the face. Use this line as a guideline to show where your eyebrows start and extend outward. Your eyebrows should extend a bit past the inner corners of your eyes.
  2. It's best to pluck just underneath the eyebrow (not above it) to maintain its natural shape. Investing in quality tweezers will help grab the brow hair easier. Tweezerman's Slant Tweezer in assorted colors is the easiest to use and the company offers complimentary sharpening. Pink or purple tweezers will at least brighten up a fairly boring beauty chore like plucking!
