It’s easy to underestimate the importance of eyebrows to the overall structure of your face. We all have them and they’re just sort of there, being eyebrows, naturally growing into whatever state they please. Some of us take it a step further by waxing, tweezing, or threading our brows, or maybe even all of the above. What many women don’t know, however, is just how much a tiny tweak of the brow can change your entire look. Spending a little extra time on your brows in the morning can take years off your face. It can make you feel prettier and look more put-together, even on your worst days. In fact, I find that if I do nothing else with makeup, simply grooming and filling in my brows makes me look worlds better than if I had left them be. Fixing them up isn’t hard — in fact, once you figure out what works for you, chances are it’ll become the easiest step in your makeup routine. Keep reading »
Got a thing for dudes with thick … brows? (What did you think I was going to say?) Then you’ll be into this gallery of hot celeb dudes who leave the tweezers to the ladies. Read more…
Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we’re talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next one to make its way off the runway and out into the streets. High fashion is high fashion for a reason. This is the reason.
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.
