Classic Bold Eyebrows

Thin or thick - what kind of eyebrows do you have?

I have a pair of quite sparse eyebrows so I don't know why for the life of me I ever got into over plucking them during my young and naive years. I've now wised up, became less attached with my tweezers and realized that thicker brows are beautiful and always have been. Just look at these beautiful women rocking their wooly brows.

I think some of us are still living with the notion that overly arched and overly plucked or shaved brows are prettier. Sometimes it is, especially when you're Angelina Jolie. Pluck the stray hairs but stay true to your natural brow shape. Otherwise it  can render you unrecognizable since eyebrows are such a crucial element to facial recognition according to this MIT study. Here's a visual to get my point across.

This is just to prove a point, Drew. You're always cute, ok?
And a friendly advice: don't go "tweezer happy". ;)
