The Cosmetic Ultralounge

Why Brows? Part Two

By Gunner Glam

In our series of explaining the significance of eyebrows, we thought we would share how important it is to have a well-groomed pair.

From an article on Yahoo written by The Pen, Brows are the first thing people will notice about your face, even if it’s subconsciously. A thick heavy brow will bring attention to just the brows. While a pencil thin brow will take attention off of the top half of the face and onto the lower part.

The place that you want people to focus should always be the eyes themselves, because they are the windows to your soul. Having a well groomed brow will do just that, bringing the attention to your eyes and serving as a frame for the entire face.

Even if you’re not big on makeup, maintaining your brows is essential. Having an unkempt brow is just out of the question. A brow that has too many stray hairs out of the natural arch line can leave its owner looking as if they don’t care about how they look, or have just given up.

A naturally thick bushy brow that’s left in its natural state can make even the most feminine face look masculine. And the dreaded uni-brow just leaves everyone looking frightful.

On the flip side, the thin overly arched brow of the past few years is just as awful a makeup crime. It can make a woman look outdated and washed out especially if her brows are blonde or light brown.

It’s almost a requirement that she wears makeup with that kind of brow, because the look is quite severe and will age every wearer, since people’s brows naturally thin as they get older.

The brow that is in now, falls somewhere in between the pencil thin brow and the one nature gave you. It follows your natural arch instead of carving out a whole new one, and takes away those stray hairs that grow past it. It’s simple and not as high maintenance as the overly arched brow.

It will also frame your face the best, because the arch you were born with is right will define your features best. Another perk to this brow is that you can run out of the house with no makeup on and still look presentable and fresh.

  1. I totally agree with this article because that is always something I notice when looking at people. Especially meeting someone for the first time. Good brows really do compliment and frame your face.
