What's up with women shaving off all of their eyebrows and penciling it on ?

makeuphow do you do yours ? i pluck mine, they are not super thin but i have a slight arch. too much of an arch looks too severe imo... when i used to get them done at the salon, they never got it right for some reason it was too arched or uneven.

  • I don't understand this either, most look so fake! After my son was born, one of his aunts looked like her eyebrows were drawn on her face. Trust me when I say that it didn't look natural. Anyway, everytime she picked him up, he cried!

  • I dont understand it either. God gives them beautiful eyebrows and they want to shave them off, pencil them in and have them look so fake. I have also seen women shave them off and then have a permanent eyebrow tatoo put on. The only reason I can see is maybe they didnt shave them but they have alpecia or have lost all their hair due to chemo.

  • I've never understood women who shave off all their eyebrows. I get mine waxed, they are thin and arched but not too thin.

  • I've always wondered how women think that looks good! I just tweeze the underside some and in between, keeping them full and arched.

  • Lol, I agree totally. When I see it, my 1st thought is, did you lose a bet? ( probably because my DD did ) She came home one night and both eyebrows were missing the center half. It was so funny and took quite awhile to grow out. I do the same and tweeze stray pieces as well as define a slight arch.

  • I don't either it looks stupid, especially when they wash all their make-up off and there is no eyebrows. Scary!!!

  • My mom's eyebrows are very thin and one doesn't grow in on the end at all, so she is forced to have to pencil them in just a bit but I couldn't understand SHAVING them off....I agree, a bit scary..
