Raising Eyebrows

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.

my eyebrows

#TBT to when my eyebrows were OUT. OF. CONTROL. And my cheeks were too.

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:

drew barrymore skinny browsSuper skinny, penciled-on eyebrows.  Which, clearly, I did not have.  Oh, the waxing and the plucking I endured in pursuit of these eyebrows.

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).

    I have the opposite problem. Mine are fading by the day. Had them dyed for the first time in the fall when I went brunette. It took a little getting used to at first but I plan to continue. #naturalblondeproblems
