Eyebrows

Okay, so part of the Tag post I revealed my lack of eyebrows and was disappointed with the lack of sympathy! boo hoo... So I'm putting it to a vote. Would you rather have crazy out of control eyebrows you have to constantly maintain, or would you rather have to draw them on every day because you have none?

First I'm going to whine. Let me just say that I wasn't born with nothing. Mine start and have a little color, but then they go very thin and blonde, almost like fuzz. In fact, my mom, dad and both sisters don't have hardly any but my brothers both have friggin forests growing on their foreheads. And it doesn't help that i have my dad's fat forehead. thanks dad. So because the beginning of my eyebrow does have some color, I'm still stuck having to pluck part of them to keep the shape of that part of the brow. And it takes a good 15 minutes to draw on. Not to mention how careful i have to be to put on or take off clothes so they don't wipe off. And then there are the pet peeve questions about shaving them... idiots. And then the question, how do you get them so perfect?? Oh.. i don't know... i guess from having to DRAW THEM ON FOR THE LAST TEN PLUS YEARS!! Duh! Seriously, you should see some of the prehistoric pictures of my adolescence when I was still trying to figure out how to draw them on and making them look real. I won't lie.. they're kind of disturbing pictures.

I got some minimally thick eyebrows(thanks dad)! I have to pluck everyother day and get them waxed every couple of weeks. It sucks! My mom used to draw her eyebrows on but now she had them tatooed on, and it doesn't look weird. So I can understand where you are coming from in some way.

I agree with Chelsea: post pictures. That will be the deciding factor. Because I'm sorry, but let's be real here: fuzz, or pubes? I mean, you can pick up an eyebrow stencil from any beauty supply store, but do you know what happens when you have Captain Hook eyebrows and you pluck just ONE too many? I'll show you sometime. I've done it. And as for having to carefully pull your clothes on? Do your makeup first. I do. 'Cuz if I DON'T, I have to be careful too, or I get lipstick everywhere. SOOOOO not convincing. Only the photos will tell.

Kudos to you for your effort...i haven't done anything to my eyebrows (aside from the occasional brow gel brush) since our wedding...
hmmm, perhaps a waxing is in order.

Sorry, no pics. You'll just have to catch me on an off day. haha. I guess for now I'll just settle to have no sympathy. And I'm okay with that now that I know the price. boo.
