I have Cosios Eyebrow book and it's a great resource for deciding what look to get, and how eyebrows evolved through fashion. But I want to sound off on the tattooing. I may be in the minority, but I know a woman who had this done and I didn't care for it on her. From a distance and front-on, it looked like penciled brows or even just natural brows. But from the side, and certain times when light from overhead hit her face, it looked like a purplish-brownish marker line drawn underneath baby fine hairs. She went to an expert tattooist and had it done in 2009. I suggest anyone considering this to take a look at a variety of real faces, not photographs, before you decide.
It's not purly a vintage shape it's a start, I been trying to find the courage for many years to have my brows shapped into a feminine look and last Saturday it finally happened.
there is still some work to be done in the future with the shap I think I not too sure what that will be yet.
My eyebrows are naturally shaped a bit like Audrey Hepburns which I love as I love a good strong eyebrow - they are pretty much horizontal and then going down to the corners of my eye (someone told me to pluck the ends off them - no way!!!!!!!) I don't have to pluck them really - I just fill them in with a MAC pencil and sometimes put that clear eyebrow gel in them to keep them sleek - great stuff!
My eyebrows are very sparse and fair and hard to see at all without make up, so I use an angled brow brush and pencil the rest in (quite a strong 40/50's shape). I had real trouble finding a brow brush, so I cut down an artists brush to shape myself.
Even if my house was on fire I think I would still stop to put on my eyebrows before evacuating!
I'm the same - they are the first thing to go on in the morning - in case I have to open the front door before I get a chance to put on the rest of my face. the moment they are "on" I feel I look so much better!
