Have you been searching for the perfect Tweezers?
Throughout the years, I have looked everywhere for the perfect pair of tweezers. I have tried long tweezers, short tweezers, ribbed-handle tweezers and everything in-between.
I have tried so many now that I have become a tweezer snob, well maybe not a snob but I certainly know what I like and why. My preference for picking up lashes, is the 5.5” straight tip tweezers, and that same length in the bent-tip tweezers. This size is what I trained with and have used for close to12 years and always come back to. These tweezers are just the right weight and length for my comfort zone and they feel good in my hands and I’m happy to offer some insight as why these have become my best-tweezing-friend.
In my experience, the shorter tweezer (must be the way I hold them) often pinches my index finger. This was such a silly problem but completely annoying. So now, my short tweezers have found a home in my junk drawer.
Also for me, In some cases I have had issues with color-coated tweezers. Sometimes after sanitizing them as well as the use of acetone to clean the tips, the color coating flakes off covering my fingers with color. Needless to say, they are in my junk drawer also.
I do like to have at least 4-5 sets of tweezers ready before I start my day. I have dropped my tweezers before and ruined them. Be careful with how you store your precious implements. Always make sure a tweezer jar is lined with cotton or a piece of sponge before dropping them in, risking damage and bending to the tips. Once they have been bent, they will find their way to the junk drawer. There is no amount of tuning your tweezers once the vulnerable tips are bent.
My advice to any lash and brow artist is once you find your perfect fit, purchase several sets and stick with what works and what feels the best, feed your fingers! Tweezers are your tools for creation, care for them and they will take care of the rest.
