Eyebrows. We all have them. Eyebrows are a necessary evil. Oh sure, they look nice. They frame your face and other stuff too. But eyebrows require A LOT of work. And these days if you are a girl or a bloke, you tend to put great value on maintaining your bushy brows. But if you don’t-that’s cool too. As for me, I have waxed, threaded and plucked myself silly. I no longer thread-it is way too painful. Plucking is out too, I get carried away. That leaves me with wax. In the past, I have been burned with wax. The scab made me look like a zombie. I kid not. I couldn’t leave my house for 7 days after that mishap. The struggle is real.
Pictured above is the British model Cara Delevingne. Apparently, we girls are supposed to have eyebrows like her. Check out Mae West’s eyebrows pictured below-back then those eyebrows were THE standard of beauty. Oh I just don’t know. Right about now am thinking a uni-brow would not be so bad. Yes. 1 long eyebrow. Connected in the middle. Maybe not.
Enter 2015. Enter botox. Say what? Yup. Botox has the ability to change your eyebrow shape, whether you want it or NOT. Check this out. Cosmetic experts say that when you use botox, you get a surprised look on your face. Good grief. This surprised look manifests itself with one raised eyebrow. LA dermatologist Laurence Osman said “this can happen when the small opposing muscles that pull each eyebrow UP and DOWN end up falling out of balance.” OMG. This occurs when Botox is placed at the tail end of the brow, but not in the forehead, meaning one brow can lift higher than the frozen one. It is important to note that not everyone with a wayward brow has used Botox. Maybe they were born that way. Unlikely. So, Botox can and does affect your eyebrows. They call it ‘highbrow.’ You can see this effect on a lot of celebs. Am not sure why they do it. They are already beautiful. But money lasts while looks fade. Anyway, I present you with the visual evidence. You are welcome.
I think you get the point. I think you’ve SEEN enough. I know I have. Grow old gracefully people. Wear your wrinkles, smile lines and crows-feet like a badge of honour. I know I do. For real.
