Choose the pair of tweezers that suit your needs. With the flat tip, apply or remove faux eyelashes or remove hair. The tip should always be held flat on the skin. The slant tip, on the other hand, is ideal for more precise removal of hair. By holding the tweezers parallel to the skin, the hair is removed using the outer end of the slanted tip. Finally, the pointed tip - this type is highly precise and allows for the removal of tiny or stray hair. Holding the tweezers parallel to the skin is important to prevent punctures.
