Tweezers are a small but mighty part of your beauty arsenal. They keep your brows in shape, your upper lip smooth and can even guide your false lashes on with ease. That’s why it’s important they have a good grip and the right amount of tension to work their magic quickly, precisely and painlessly.

The slanted tweezer is a classic and versatile design for in between eyebrow waxes and threading. They make brow shaping hassle-free, since the flat edge easily grabs hairs while the pointed tip handles the more precise plucking.

One of the most important features to look for in your tweezers is that the tip is made from stainless steel. Not only does stainless steel last longer, but it won’t rust or cause irritation when in contact with your skin. Plus, strong stainless steel tips will never need sharpening.
