For something that is so naturally and genetically programmed to your face, eyebrows sure have become a huge commodity. From the ever-elusive strong eyebrow to the alarming plucked-into-oblivion eyebrow, the bleached/seemingly-nonexistent eyebrow to the shaved/ACTUALLY nonexistent eyebrow, or the eyebrows that are closer to being a unibrow than two separate entities, the options are truly endless and generally too plentiful to name in a coherent list.
However, we’ve taken the liberty to capitalize on the most notable and reoccurring eyebrow trends in recent years, so you may be VERY inspired and VERY enlightened as you embark on your next eyebrow-modification endeavors. At this rate, you won’t even need to buy makeup to cake your face with because your eyebrows will be doing all the talking! Think of this as somewhat of a revolution! The importance of eyebrows! You. Are. Welcome.
The natural eyebrow:
The perfect look for those who are too lazy to do anything to their eyebrows. Achieve this look by letting all your eyebrow hairs accumulate until you look sufficiently edgy and intentionally unkempt! Or, you know, become well-acquainted with an eyebrow pencil. Whatever works, really.
The drawn-on eyebrow:
You can be a /fierce/ chameleon with this fun fix to your eyebrow woes. Simply shave your eyebrows off and draw on your expression of choice each day for optimal confusion! Obviously we suggest trying different coloured eyebrow pencils so you can match your brows to your outfit in a totally practical (and not outrageous) way.
The thinly-plucked eyebrow:
Let us all take the time to reminisce on the days when we first encountered a pair of tweezers…yeah, okay.
The bleached ~I’m a supermodel~ eyebrow:
Supermodel Lara Stone got her claim to fame when she hit the scene with her barely-there bleached eyebrows. Ever since, this has been a perfectly acceptable/arguably-attractive trend in hIgH fAsHiOn. But like, as everyday people ourselves, we encourage you to try it out as well…because it is normal and not weird at all.
The contrasting/strong eyebrow:
To all you gals who have bleached every ounce of pigment out of your hair but have avoided creating contact between the burning chemicals and your face, worry no more! Because now, your eyebrows no longer need to play matchy-matchy with your hair colour; the darker and more implausible, the better!
The awkwardly-shaved eyebrow:
The quickest and most logical way to fool everyone into thinking you’re tough and get into street fights on the daily, etc, is to shave fun lines into your eyebrows. Look to eyebrow-aficionado Vanilla Ice for tips, and strive for asymmetry because symmetry is totes overrated.
The solitary eyebrow:
At one point, we’re positive that the unibrow was intentional and not just unfortunate…
Oh, and then this happened.
