How different do I look without the finishing touch of eyebrows that frame my face? I think without them I look a bit odd and unfinished.
I also think my eyebrows are an indicator of my age if they are left au naturel. Why is this? You may also be in the same boat – many of us are....
Eyebrows have their own styles and follow trends in fashion -I have over plucked them in the past and they have just simply stopped growing. I get the odd stragglers that need plucking out but they are distinctly lacking in length. The outer third of my eyebrows just don’t grow any more. (Apparently, this can also be an indicator of thyroid issues – not in my case though.)
Therefore, my pale insignificant eyebrows hark back to days when it was fashionable to have them relatively thin, this in turn gives away my age. Have a look around, there will be women with sparse over plucked eyebrows and they will probably be in their late 40’s and early 50’s.
