BROW SHAPE You are born with a brow shape that works naturally with your eyes and face. Your brow’s own natural line should be your guide. I strongly discourage women from severe plucking, because, unlike eyelashes, brow hairs do not always grow completely back.
Like every other aspect of makeup, brow styles come and go. In the 1940s, women shaved their brows and then painted on thin black lines. In the early 1960s, a narrow brow line was again the fashion, but it was achieved through exaggerated plucking. Thanks to Brooke Shields and Margaux Hemingway, a stronger, androgynous brow phase took hold in the late 1970s. That was a big moment for brows. Since then, brow style has been generally more manicured. But, strange as it sounds, brow fashion today changes slightly almost every season. Models sometimes have a hard time keeping up. Many who have allowed their brows to be radically plucked take isolated, lengthy vacations for the unsightly growing-back phase. In some cases, eyebrows never come back quite the same.
Eyebrows have to work with your features and style. If you are small or have delicate features, your brow should have a finer line (think Michelle Pfeiffer or Linda Evangelista).
