It’s often said that your eyebrows are the frame to your face. This was one of the first beauty truths I learned. Luckily for me, I inherited what I lovingly call my dad’s “caveman” eyebrow. Yes, it’s a monobrow. When I was maybe 8 or 9, I started noticing that I only had one eyebrow instead of two. When my mom wasn’t looking, I stole her razor and wacked off the patch in between in my eyes. As you might imagine, she flipped out but then turned around and taught me how to pluck. Ever since then, I have had two eyebrows.
However, many people don’t take care of their eyebrows. Here are some examples:
Make these a monobrow and this is eerily similar to how I looked as a child.
These are just too thin. And the drawn on eyebrow pencil that’s the wrong color?
Oh, and please never wear that much frosted pastel eyeshadow up to your brow. Nothing screams “I still apply makeup like a thirteen year old” than too much frosted pastel shadow.
Again, too thin and penciled in wrong. Also, eyebrows should not resemble grammatical marks.
And oy again with the pastel shadow.
The shape is good, and so is the color. However, the pencil-in effect is too obvious. I can’t even tell if there’s hair on her brows.
