Take a warm shower
Taking shower with warm water prior to waxing or plucking the eyebrows is also useful as it opens up the pores of your skin, relieving the pain. If you don’t want to take shower for this minor activity, then simply dip some cotton balls into a warm water and dab it on your eyebrows until thoroughly wet. Wipe the eyebrows dry and the wax or pluck them.

Pluck close to the roots of eyebrow hairs
If you are using the plucking method to shape your eyebrows, then make sure to pluck the eyebrow hair close to their roots. If you hold the hair from the tip, then you will have to exert more force to pluck it out which in return increase the pain chances.

Pluck in the direction of the hair growth
Either you are using the plucking method or waxing method, make sure to pull out the eyebrow hair in the direction of the hair growth. For example, if you are waxing or plucking your right eyebrow, simply pull the eyebrow hair in the right hand-side direction.
