Threading the eyebrows

I watched this Youtube post and tried to imitate it. I think I did something wrong, because my eyelids were seriously damaged after this. I mean - I could see blood, the tiny hairs were not pulled out at the right angle. My eyelids have hurt for two days now...
Glittering eyeshadows help to hide the puffiness, overall redness and incrustations. I presume it would have helped had I had just 2 more arms to hold the skin on the eyelids more firmly.
What the hell did I do wrong? On the videos the people just slide the thread on the skin and the hair is removed.
I'll stick to my tweezers...

(3 days later)

Uus või pigem igivana meetod kulmukarvade kitkumiseks: võtad veidi niiti, seod otsad kokku ja hakkad "vurri mängima". kahjuks ei tõmmanud see meetod mu kulmukarvu pärikarva välja ja jättis mu laud veidi veriseks (karv tuli ära koos tillukese naharibaga - ei soovita). Seda on vist parem lasta kellelgil teisel teha, sest mõistlik oleks laugudel olev nahk selle protseduuri ajaks pingule tõmmata. Karvaeemaldusmeetodina on see väga efektiivne.

Oh that sucks, girl!
I was actually planning on trying threading as well after watching the video, but now I got worried. Lol.
Have you tried putting some icecubes and antiseptic cream on it?

Just some antiseptic spray. It does not hurt so much anymore. Perhaps I should have paid more attention to the direction the hairs are growing :D. Keeping the thread from threading off all my eyebrows/lashes was my first priority at that time.
