A Bobbi Brown representative was in the store, and there was a woman maybe in her mid-thirties asking her about eye makeup. The rep was very informative, but when they got to discussing eyebrows, the woman said, "My eyebrows hardly even show up, but I can never get them perfect with an eyebrow pencil." At which point, the rep said, "Eyebrows should be sisters, but not twins." She then went on to explain that too many people think their eyebrows have to match, but that is not the case. She pointed out that even naturally, your eyebrows are symmetrical, but not perfect.
I really liked that analogy. So of course since then I have been noticing people's eyebrows. I have come to the conclusion that you don't have to have them look perfect, like this:
and I think that most people even if they try for this, and don't get it, look OK enough that you don't notice. I'm a person who always notices someone's eyes, it's one of the first things I look at when I see a face.
And I have to say, I am always intrigued by this look:
where they are obviously drawn or tattooed, but in no way look natural. I realize that a lot of people have really light eyebrows (mine are nearly invisible without cosmetic help), or have tweezed their brows beyond repair. But having obviously drawn brows would make me more more self-conscious than having light ones.
Not a good look, if you ask me.
And even though I think this woman is beautiful, I can't get on board with unibrows.
Using the analogy the Bobbi Brown rep used, this would be conjoined twins ...
What about you? Do you notice eyebrows? I've always noticed them, but this week I seem especially obsessed with them ... you'd think mine were perfect or something! ;-)
