"I read somewhere that thin brows are seen as 'common', and royalty mustn't overpluck."
You could be on to something there, esp. considering the eyebrows of Wallis Simpson , p'raps that was the real reason they couldn't stand her. Also reckon Princess Margaret fond of a shaped eyebrow during her more wayward phase, over-plucked eyebrows must bring back dreadful memories for them...
I'd love to have my Brooke Shields eyebrows back, I was always careful not to overpluck during the 80s, then about 1994 I suddenly wanted to have arched brows like Lisa Stansfield.
I'v been using revitalash and revitabrow since January. (Mainly for my eyebrows which I had butchered since my teens ) I wasn't holding out much hope especially for my eyelashes but I'm very impressed.
I'm doing a 2-3 times a week maintenance now. I do wear mascara on non-work days and I'm really pleased (have to use eyelash curlers for maximum oomph) but I don't need to use eye-pencil now. Just comb with clear gel.
Revitalash and Revitabrow are available online but I got mine from QVC . It's ££ and it doesn't work within their 30 day moneyback guarentee.I was thinking "That's a crock of pooh" after 6 weeks , then it worked after maybe 8-10 weeks.
It's so strange isn't it, I HATED my eyebrows, now bushy is back.
Interestingly, although Kate Middleton isn't exactly a style icon, have you noticed her brows have thickened since getting engaged. I read somewhere that thin brows are seen as 'common', and royalty mustn't overpluck. Was studying photos of the Queen and Queen Mother and they have very natural brows, as did Diana.
I had enormous brows as a teenager and was teased mercilessly. They were like Cara's So plucked them too much. Also fashionable then I guess to have thin brows. I want them back!
Have not plucked for a week and they are growing back patchily and I use Browzings anyway so they look ok. But, has anyone used the eyebrow equivalent of rapid lash? Does it work? Have heard castor oil works too. Any experiences to share?
