Your lifestyle, your quirk
Should I wear my eyebrows bushy or thin? That is one of the burning beauty questions lots of fashionistas ask each year. For those of you lying awake at night debating this very subject, from what I am seeing on the runway and several other websites, the answer is bushy, and I could not be happier.
It’s a family trait to have bushy eyebrows in my family, and ever since I became interested in all of this beauty stuff, my full set of eyebrows have been a good thing…when they’re in style. Brows, just like other trends, go in and out of style, and the out years for busy brows can be troublesome for some of us.
It took me a while to figure out what was best as far as what to do with mine and add it to my beauty routine. One year when thin brows were in, I decided to experiment with Nair…which definitely gave me brows that wowed (in a Joan Crawford way). I eventually recovered, and even sought out professional grooming help, but it took me a few years to go more natural and stick with what worked.
I am not sure what kicked off 2012 as being an “in” year for bushy brows, but not only are we seeing fuller, more natural-looking brows that are highly defined, but we're also seeing eyebrows with theatrically decorative graphic lines, pretty patterns, and embellishments like sequins and stones.
Honestlywtf.com posted several pictures of one of the Chanel fall runway shows that features models sporting the embellished brows, and although it’s a bit over the top, I love the look. It’s a good thing we everyday gals won’t have to go that far for brows that wow.
Shawnadmakeup.blogspot.com echoes the words of most pros this year: “Let them grow.” In fact, to quote the blogger, “Have them cleaned up by a pro and leave them alone!” She also suggests you “drop the tweezers and back away from the mirror slowly.”
And I have to add, if bushy brows aren’t the best look for you, don’t be afraid to stick to your guns and go thinner, but by all means, stay away from Nair.
