These are used for plucking eyebrows and stray hairs from the face or body. JCH Respect Slant Tweezers are sold in cardboard packaging and made from rust-free stainless steel, with an angled tip. Ideally tweeze after a shower (when hairs will come out easier) or after numbing the area with ice cubes. Or just put a warm wet flannel on the area for a few minutes beforehand. To tweeze eyebrows:
- Make a straight line from the inside eye to know where the brow begins.
- Fan it out, so the brows end in a diagonal line, from the outer eye.
- Holding tweezers like a pencil, tweeze close to the root, following direction of hair growth.
- If you have large eyes (or brows high on the forehead), leave your brows thicker.
- Don’t tweeze too much, or your eyebrows may not grow back!
Bomonde Vegan Mineral Eyebrow Brush Kit is an alternative to traditional eyebrow pencils in plastic pots. This is presented in a refillable bamboo wooden palette, made with natural minerals to frame your eyes, and create a soft powdered look or more defined look (by using it wet or dry).
Fun Facts About Eyebrows
Giraffes are one of the few other creatures that have eyebrows!
We all have them, but how much do you know about your eyebrows? In fact, their main purpose is to keep dirt and sweat out of our eyes, and their shape is designed to stop water flooding our eyeballs! That’s why when it rains or you work out at the gym, the water runs down your face, and not into your eyes.
Most people have around 250 hairs on each eyebrow, although other people have more. Fashion has dictated over the years whether people plucked them to oblivion (like in the 20s) or left them big and natural (like Brooke Shields). Just like hair on our head, after a few months the hair on your brows falls out, and is replaced by new hair.
Eyebrows also help to show our emotions, and can even stop growing, if you feel very anxious or stressed (just like hair on your head).
My acting range has always been between two extremes of ‘raises left eyebrow’ and ‘raises right eyebrow’. Sir Roger Moore
