1. Eyebrows should never be plucked from above - false

Eyebrows are interesting creatures - no pair is the same and they all require an individual approach to grooming, which can often mean plucking a few stray hairs from above. "Every individual natural eyebrow shape, depth of colour and hair growth is unique to the individual - some of us are more hairy than others after all," points out Chase Aston, The Body Shop's international make up artist. "If you have overgrown brows, they will need grooming to achieve the perfect shape to compliment the eyes whilst adding balance and structure to the face, and this means that you may have to pluck from above to achieve this." For some precise plucking, look no further than the range of tweezers from Tweezerman. The slanted tweezers effortlessly grip and remove the tiniest of hairs. Prices range from $22-$25.
