The full eyebrow trend makes me so happy. So, so happy.
As you can see from this picture of me in 10th grade, full eyebrows are kind of my thing. I got them from my Dad. Thanks, Dad.
Full eyebrows were not AT ALL the thing when I was in high school. Back in my sophomore year in 1995, these were the eyebrows you wanted:
So it is an irony not lost on me that after spending most of my life trying to tame my crazy eyebrows into submission, I am now at a point where I have to fill them in or they look too sparse.
I still have to wax them too, though, because they don’t grow where they’re SUPPOSED to grow. Of course.
I bought a few eyebrow products recently that I really like. Thanks to these two products, I have full eyebrows, but not caterpillars-crawling-across-my-forehead, Bert-from-Sesame-Street eyebrows. Which is a good thing.
I’m grateful that full eyebrows are back in style. It makes my life easier for sure–far fewer waxing appointments, less time plucking, and two minutes of filling-in-and-gelling in the mornings. It also bodes well for B, who inherited my significant eyebrows (sorry, B, but at least they’re in style now!).
I hope this natural look sticks around for a while (or, you know, forever).
