Tweezer Type: Slant-Tip Tweezers

Nothing says 'classic' like slant-tip tweezers. The Tweezerman Slant Tweezer in Stainless Steel has been the gold standard for years. Some makeup pros have literally been using the same Tweezerman Slant Tweezer for their entire career.

Thanks to Tweezerman's exceptional warranty, you’ll never need to buy a new pair. All Tweezerman implements can be repaired and sharpened FREE forever. What more could you ask for?

Tweezer Type: Wide-Grip Tweezers

Have trouble grabbing brow hairs? You need to check out wide-grip tweezers. The easy-to-grab paddle makes it a breeze to tweeze your eyebrows. If you don’t have the steadiest hands, this design is a top pick. We love Laura Mercier Tweezers (by Tweezerman).

Tweezer Type: Pointed Slant-Tip Tweezers

In the tweezer department, you’ll find common slant-tip tweezers as well as tricky-to-use pointed tweezers. Looking for a middle ground? Pointed slant-tip tweezers are a perfect solution.

Tweezer Storage Musts

Been tossing your tweezers straight into your makeup bag? It’s time to break that habit. Having sharp tweezers is important. A dull pair isn't going to grip well.

If you’ve got a storage jar or glass, store your tweezers with the tips sticking upwards so they don’t get dull. If you prefer keeping your implements in a makeup bag, hold on to that little plastic tip protector that comes with your tweezers.

Tweezer Maintenance Essentials

When you're shopping for tweezers, be sure to grab a pair that's 100% stainless steel. Other constructions aren’t as likely to hold up.

Stainless steel tweezers are easy to clean. Just dab some alcohol onto cotton pads and wipe down your tweezers on a regular basis.

Attention, newbies: you don’t need to guess your way to perfect brows. Get yourself a brow-grooming kit with all the essentials, including a stencil! We love the Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow 5 Piece Brow Kit, which contains tweezers, brow powder, brow stencils, a brow brush, and clear brow gel.
