Do you draw on your eyebrows??

I have seen many women with eyebrows that look drawn on, or are they tatooed?? Why do they do this?? I was just curious...

  • I think some women who don't have eyebrows draw them on. I don't know why else they would do it. I used to work with a girl who drew her eyebrows on and they looked like upside down Nike swishes. I couldn't look at her when I talked to her because I just couldn't help staring! They make stencils, though. I also just saw on Extreme Makeover some tattooed eyebrows that actually didn't look that bad.

  • Maybe they pluck them, or have the hair lasered off, then tatoo them on....

  • I pencil my eyebrows every day. They are NOT obvious at all. I have full brows but want a filled in look. They DO NOT look like the people that shave theirs and then draw or tattoo them on. I think they can look like clowns!! I think my brows are a great feature... hahahahah

  • LOL..the women who look like they are constantly in a state of surprise...insecure? cultural? who knows.

  • I think you may be right, maybe it is cultural. I have seen quite few asian women with eyebrows that are drawn on, usually older women too....My boss does that to hers...

  • I pencil mine in too, so it's not noticable. I have dark hair, but my brows are a bit lighter in color. I don't do it too much. One day I accidentally put dark blue on my daughter stopped me before we left for school and said "MOM your eyebrows are blue !"..that was too funny!! I quickly ran inside and wiped if off and filled them in with black...

  • I know you can't help but stare, because it's just not natural....Maybe that do that instead of getting a brow lift, they do their own....insta-lift...just draw it on in seconds, no pain, no stitches!! LOL

  • It is usually a Spanish, Latina or Mexican who shaves off the eyebrows and pencil's them back in. It looks BAD in my opinion, But they like it and it is theire body..... but then again a 400 lb woman in a bikini at the beach thinks she looks good too. It's all a personal choice I guess. Even if other people think it looks ridiculous
