How do you tell yourself "STOP, that's enough"?

...with tweezer in hand?

 

Needless to say, I went a little overboard this morning.

But there's always just one more that needs to go! lol...I know what you mean. I'm guilty of this all the time...and sometimes I just have to quit looking in the mirror because otherwise I'll tweeze til there's nothing left!

I honestly have a bit of a problem when I start, I would say borderline OCD. One I tweezed the last half of my eyebrow because I just couldn't stop myself. (Yeah I am painting myself in a great light here) It doesnt help I ALWAYS use a 15x mirror, Anyway I now have a strict rule that everyday I can only pluck 5 hairs. 

 

So I look, and have to think thoughtfully what hair are the worst and take them out. Leave the rest for another day.


How bad did that all sound :s

I have the same problem, and sometime have that issue with my eyelashes..Even If I stopped I would continue it the next day. Then beat myself up about it, until it grows back

I think I just make a point to be really careful and take my time; I try not to get impatient and grab several hairs at once. I've definitely overplucked before, but I've been more vigilant lately because I read that sometimes the hair doesn't grow back, or doesn't grow back the same way. I like my brows, so that was enough to scare me! :smileyhappy:

I am so terrible at shaping my brows (I have asian brows, so the hair grows in several directions and can get quite long) and always over tweeze...so I gave up and leave it to the experts.  I found a threading salon in my neighborhood, they charge $7 to make my brows beautiful, and then I try to upkeep for a couple weeks by plucking hairs only as they grow in out of the nice shape.  I inevitably get lazy and forget to pluck for a few days, so then it is back to the salon for me! 

 

If you have a middle eastern or indian neighborhood in your area, you can probably get your brows threaded for as little as $5.  Also, I'm not sure if this is true, but I've heard it is better for the delicate skin around your brows than waxing.

I embrace my full eyebrows, so I really only tweeze the few stray hairs, and don't really try to shape them. 

I don't see a point in tweezing off all my eyebrow hairs & then drawing them on. Seems a bit counterintuitive to me. 

Some brands have brow stencils & I think using those before you tweeze really helps keep you from going overboard :smileywink:

I have had several traumatizing episodes where my brows were scary, so after those experiences, I realized that exercising restraint was something I had to learn. We all have different limits we reach before we have an eyebrow epiphany LOL.
