Just saw an arinina grande video, only thing i can concentrate on is how dreadful her eyebrows look. Just awful.

The sugagabes used to have eyebrows about 2mm high and they always looked awful to me.

Is it me or do they look bad?

They're fine. People are a little obsessed with brows atm

YABVVVVU - from someone who grew up with the most monsterous monobrow grin

I'm with you on those.

Though, left alone, I have a uni brow. So I can't get on board with your thread title. grin

I hate the dark skin/blonde hair combo a la Rita Ora look. That's when the dark thick eyebrows bug me. Either go the whole hog or be more subtle.

If my eyebrows were left to their own devices I'd look like a cave troll

I agree that the sugarbabe brow looks very dated now, but we all had brows like this in the 90's. Thankfully mine grew back! I'm not a big fan of the drawn on brow look at the moment but I embrace the fuller more natural brow with a clean line. I keep mine reasonably full, have them threaded for a really clean neat line and use the lancome auburn gel with the brush to give them a big of jooj.

Her hair colour distracts me more, tbh. I do agree with you though, there's some amazingly awful Sharpie brows out there now.

I've seen a lot worse than ariana grande at school today!

DyslexicScientist Thu 26-Nov-15 20:40:18

S flake I think that's it. The light hair and thick dark brow just looks awful. Probably why i find ag's brow funny.

those thick drawn on eyebrows that are soooo popular right now are awful.
i'm sure there'll be a swing back to pencil thin eyebrows soon.

I had the pencil thin borderline sperminator brows in the 90's. I lay the blame firmly at Drew Barrymore's door for mine.

Thankfully I'm 'blessed' with thick, dark eyebrows, so with a lot of patience and hiding the tweezers for a few months, they grew back into a really nice shape. God knows why I plucked them out in the first place.

I do need to tweeze them a bit though or they'd ge out of hand. Very careful, patient tidying up once a week.

90's Drew <rests case>

I call them cartoon eyebrows, awful and so unnatural.

DickDewy Thu 26-Nov-15 20:55:29

Nothing, NOTHING renders someone more fugly than big, thick HD brows.

It is the most revolting trend. I see young women who could be moderately attractive and they have these monstrous brows and those big ol' buns atop their heads that pretty much no-one can get away with. Bleugh.

There are some really OTT takes on the fuller brow, they are never good. The over plucked tiny brows of the sugababes et al have long been left in the 90's,thankfully. But they should absolutely not just be left alone. Your eyebrows frame your face, a nicely shaped brow, subtly groomed with the correct products can make such a difference. Done right, they can make you look a lot more polished.

Have you ever Googled images of bad eyebrows. shock

megletthesecond Thu 26-Nov-15 20:59:03

Yabu. They should be tidy and frame the face. None of this hideous HD brow nonsense though. Pluck a little, trim the longest and brush in the morning.

MajesticWhine Thu 26-Nov-15 21:06:28

My brows need attention. If I leave them alone (which tbh I often do) they look a bit like this.

MadeMan Thu 26-Nov-15 21:08:28

"Have you ever Googled images of bad eyebrows."

I have now and it wasn't a pretty sight let me tell you.

Mintyy Thu 26-Nov-15 21:15:36

Yanbu, the basic shape of eyebrows should be left alone! Of course pluck or thread the ones that meet in the middle and tidy up a bit, otherwise leave them be.

All my life I have craved straight eyebrows like Brooke Shields. Instead I have mad arches with not much on the outer third (thanks thyroid) but you can't mess with nature.

I'd also like thick curly hair and to be 5'6" tall. But some things really can't be done.
