    It's no secret that Rita Hayworth is my idol. I pretty much want to be her. So I'm wondering if I can pull off her eyebrows. I'm not good at figuring out face shape and what looks good on certain shapes. I was hoping someone here would be better at that sort of thing. I haven't plucked my eyebrows in months because I was unsure of what I wanted to do with them. I really want the Rita look, but am afraid it will look horrible on me.
    So, here's Rita:
    And here's me today: (no makeup to show my current wild eyebrows and smile/no smile to help with face shape.)
    Now, I have had thin eyebrows before in high school and I don't think they looked terrible on me I think with a little pencil they could have easily ben Rita brows, but I never used pencil back then:
    I also tried looking for tutorials to help, but I didn't find any where someone was actually severely plucking down their brows like I would have to. Most of the videos were women that had already had their brows shaped and were just showing how they use their pencil/eyebrow products.

    I think it is worth a try. I would bring loads of photos, and ask for them to thicker than Rita's to start with really only because I find it better to start off a bit thicker as you can always go thinner, but there is no turning back if they are too thin.

    Your eyes are a similar shape to hers. I think they would work for you. Do you have one of those threading places near you? My friends swear by those. You could take that picture in.

    I would also take a lot of photos and go a little thicker. It's easier to thin out than it is to grow!
