Because baby, I was born this way.

Oh Gaga, how I love you!!

But well girlies, today's post is brow-related.  Indeed, I was unfortunately born with gigantic brows, which ironically are a tough match for my father's.  An 11 year old with a man's brows called for one thing... frantic over-plucking.  Sadly, my mother saw the first one and nearly crumbled at the eyebrow with 5 hairs (or so...)

So, over the years I've really toyed with my eyebrows.  The first stage was growing them into something that resembled an eyebrow.  I had them relatively err... slimline for a number of years, but in the past year or so I've been a huge fan of embracing the brow.  I love the look of HD brows, but personally think they're rather pointless.  With naturally gappy eyebrows, all you need is a keen eye and some make-up tools, of course!

At the moment I'm thinking of going for the heavier brow, but I'm not sure.  I don't want to go through masses of effort growing and grooming to find that once they've filled out I look like slug-face.  So, I'm asking for your opinion!  I realise that this photo makes me look like I'm naked (cringe) but I'm not!  I wear a towel until hair and make-up's done, then choose the outfit.  But aside from looking bare and bad lighting, what do you think about these brows?  I've filled in the extra bits where I'm thinking of growing and so far have small shadows!

Do you think they're too heavy for my face?  Too 'scouse-brow' to be considered acceptable?  My boyfriend's no help, all I got was 'you look different'...!

Your help is needed!!


Ps.  As an edit I will just let you know I use Boots Amazing Eyes in brown (admittedly it's not for brows, but works just as well on mine!) and e.l.f Eyebrow Kit in medium.


  1. i think your brows look perfect! they look just full enough & have such a nice shape!

  2. aww, thank you! i will keep growing them then! xx

  3. I think they look great, really nice shape :)
    I used to have insanely thin eyebrows, I think they were fashionable once [ahem..] xx

  4. they're such a lovely shape! definately think you suit them, not too heavy for your face at all :) xo

  5. @Celia, thanks :) and maybe we could have a 'back in the day' eyebrow-off! I'm sure we were the height of fashion.. ;) xx

    @BABYFACE thank you! growing them back is not an easy task though.. patchy brows are so much effort! xx
