I use moom brand hair removal wax. About $7. It's all natural and does the job better than other brands out there in my option.
Microwave the jar of wax uncovered
It may take 10-15 seconds in the microwave depending on how much is left in the jar. Do not let it boil, which it can easily.
Prep your brow area by washing your face with and rinsing with warm water to open the hair follicle for less painful removal.
You can use a Popsicle stick or the end of makeup tool for dipping in the wax and applying :)
Give the wax a little stir to make sure it's evenly heated and the consistency of warm honey.
Quickly but carefully, while the wax is still warm, trace over the hair you want to remove by gliding the wax on the spots where you want it removed.
Immediately after applying the wax, place your scrap of fabric onto where you just applied and press firmly while rubbing over the fabric in the direction the hair grows.
I should mention that it may seem intimidating but this is called "sugaring" - not waxing. It does not hurt if you are used to regular tweeting. Sugaring grabs the hairs and not the skin. Pull it off.
Take your brow brush and first use the bristle side brushing the hairs upwards, followed by the comb in the next step.
Using the comb side, gently comb upwards and take your scissors and trim off any excess long hairs straight across. (only the ones sticking over the comb)
See how I'm not cutting into the actually brow? ;)
Follow step #7, 8 and 9. Trace the hair you want to remove from the bottom of your brows and wax it off.
DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. I used vitamin E lotion. It will make redness and puffiness go down in just minutes. :) you'll see.
Wait a few minutes then WIPE OFF :)
Here are my freshly done brows. And they're not too red either :) however they need to be filled in because naturally no ones eyebrows are exactly the same. If you want to achieve symmetry...
...Take your brow pencil or powder and lightly shade in the natural shape of your brows where you think the hair should grow.
And after! Thanks for watching!
