Open Thread: Is The Thick Eyebrow Trend For Everyone?

Beauty & Style | Melanie Yvette Martin | 07/01/2015 | 12:45 PM EDT

It's time to talk the highs and lows about the latest brow trend...

It’s been all over the place. The obsession with thick, lush brows that aren’t over arched or over-plucked. They’re dark, filled in with pencils or powders that bring your eyes to life. But, are we all really feeling this thick brow trend? And are they for everyone?


We’re thinking not. While all women look their best with brows that are shaped well to fit their face, having full lush brows may not be the best bet for every woman. For the record, having skinny, short eyebrows is never the trend (sorry, ladies). But, the key is to figure out what looks best fitting for your face. You don’t want to ever over grow your brows, but also don’t want to over-pluck your brows either. If anything, you want that perfect full arch that Beyonce has seemed to attain. They’re not too strong, not too thin, not too dark, and not too light. They’re just right.


“But what about my face shape”, you ask?


If you have no idea as to how your eyebrows should look on you, go see an expert. Do not try to figure this out on your own. You will mess up your brows and find yourself waiting months for them to grow back in, just so you can start over again. From Sephora, to MAC to your closest threading location, you’ll be sure to meet an expert who can help you reach your brow potential. And if they don’t recommend the thick, lush eyebrow trend for you, don’t worry. Just make sure your brows are on point for your face.
