Sure, eyebrows are important because they keep the sweat out of our eyes. But in the case of Anne Hathaway, they prevent her from looking like one of the aliens in “Mars Attacks.” [247Lol.net]

We’ve done some terrible things to our eyebrows in the past, but in recent years we’ve learned the key to great brows is leaving them alone. The less plucking, waxing and tweezing you do, generally, the better. Big brows are in –and hopefully are here to stay — and we’ve found some of the best eyebrows sported by real women. Click through to see their well-manicured brows in action.
Either GOP presidential contender Ron Paul was wearing eyebrow toupees during the GOP debate on Tuesday night, or the brown caterpillar nesting atop his eyebrows decided to go for a walk at a rather inopportune moment. Those are the only two possibilities I can think of to explain why Mr. Paul’s right eyebrow seemed to fall off his face onstage. The New York Times, always atop pressing political matters, called the Paul campaign spokesman, who huffed that the inquiry was “stupid” or “insulting.” Instead, the spokesman blamed “allergies” on the Dartmouth campus where the debate was held. The poor spokesman was just doing his job, but I am filing that baloney under Vanity-Related Excuses About As Plausible As Bristol Palin’s Plastic Surgery Splurge Being For “Medical Reasons.”
You can always count on Lil’ Kim to change up her
face style game. For a while she was looking a bit like Kim Kardashian’s distant, older relative, but all that changed when she got rid of her eyebrows. She didn’t need those things anyway. This particular trend would look ridiculous on me, but I marvel at women who can pull it off. Click through to see what I’m talking about.
Dear Anastasia Brow Wiz (or as I fondly call you, Stasi),
We’ve only known each other for a few months now, but you’ve already saved me from moments of embarrassment, and I love you for that. You’ve helped my brows look as if they’re groomed, even though it’s been months since I’ve had them done. After having to grow out my brows twice already this year, I’m wary of letting someone new shape my brows. The only problem is my beloved eyebrow threader is an hour-long train ride away. And that’s not a trip I’m willing to take regularly … But that’s why I have you, Stasi. Keep reading »
I certainly could never do it, but I do love the otherworldly, sort of feral look that shaving one’s eyebrows gives the face. Take model Guinevere Van Seenus in this Vogue Italia editorial shot by Tim Walker — her brows are so faded out they look nonexistent, and give her face a wild, alien quality. Model Lara Stone’s been rocking the minimal eyebrows look forever. Again, it’s not for every face, but on the women who can pull it off, it’s a very distinctive and daring look.

We’ve spent much time and money waxing, tweezing, and threading the hairs that grow between our two eyebrows (and we imagine so have you). But this process, it turns out, isn’t shared by all women in the world. Over in Tajikistan (a small country just north of Afghanistan), women pride themselves on their full-grown brows as a mark of beauty. And for those who don’t naturally have pronounced unibrows, one can easily purchase pigmented herbs to color in the space, much like an eyebrow pencil. Keep reading »
