Tweezers can be used for all sorts of things, but for myself and a lot of other fellow beauty bloggers out there, it's all about the brows. Even if you're not one to go and get your brows done professionally, you may still be guilty of plucking them every now and then to clean them up a little (I know I am).

Until yesterday, I had no idea that there were over 80 makes of tweezers out there. How can there be so many different types for so many different things? crazy right?

Some of the most iconic eyebrows belong to the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Cara Delevingne and Marilyn Monroe so if you want to achieve brows like these without the hassle or money to get them done professionally then tweezers may just be your answer. It's easy to pick up a cheap pair of slanted tweezers from near enough any of your local drugstores or supermarkets, but are they really any good?

Brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills are perfect when it comes down to plucking eyebrows as they cause no pain at all unlike a lot of brands out there. Although these tweezers may be expensive to some, they are worth the splurge! You can read more about the different types of tweezers and the ways to use them correctly here, this includes tweezers with a round tip, pointed tip, square tip, pointed slant tip and cricket point tip etc..

One of the biggest mistakes people make when using tweezers is pressing too hard. The harder you press on the tweezers, the more likely they are to release whatever you are trying to grip. So next time you are using tweezers, be sure to press gently.
It is also advised that you don't store your tweezers with your makeup brushes and clean them properly in boiling water after every use.

Do you use tweezers?
