Because it's Monday and we don't want to work yet.

Let’s Talk About It! JOIN IN
  • Hannah

    When it is natural, because you have sparse brows, I think it looks soft and beautiful. But personally I think over-plucking dark brows can look a little... unsofisticated

  • Suzie

    If this was entirely an excuse to post that Diva video, then I'm okay with it.

  • AsphodelJones

    No. Huge brows forever. However, #23 is as gorgeous as Kate Moss ever looked. I want to go put on a bunch of highlighter now.

    • Trudy Smock-Sample

      I've seen several trends in eyebrows over the years, and every one had its champion. Just wait; your day will come back around. Look at Brook Shields; She's seen multiple surges of the big brows.

  • ayla

    noooooooooooooooooooo

  • Alice Dennard

    I was re-watching ANTM's second season the other day and kind of swooning over a lot of the contestants thin brows. As someone who does not naturally have a lot of brows to work with this is fabulous inspiration! I also kind of want to bleach my brows but I think that's getting a little ahead of myself...

  • http://theconsciencefund.com/ Divya

    Only kate Moss can pull off a barely there brow! I'd look so evil!

  • Lauren

    Beautiful photos, but even Gwen, Angelina, and Cate have all since grown out their brows!

    • Trudy Smock-Sample

      That's because fashion is cyclical.

  • Brittany

    The women with naturally thin eyebrows look lovely, but those with eyebrows plucked to extinction seem like they're lacking a necessary frame for their face.

  • tambi

    So basically let's just go back to the nineties

  • Claire

    I'd love to see a Karen Elson Top Shelf, she has such beautiful skin.

  • baja

    HOT! this is a fine trend :) i've got dark hair and dark brows so i'm kinda confounded -- but your gallery is so diverse and full of great inspiration!

  • baja

    i think the needle-thin makes women look very doll-like. curious to say the least lol

  • Maggi

    Naomi in pic 15 looks angelic!

  • http://madamecouture.blogspot.com/ Emma Hager

    God, Kate's lil brows are so divine. Face of an angel.

    • Ally

      Slide #6? Angel was the exact word that came to mind.

  • lucky

    NOPE never going back to skinny brows again. that's where my power lies.

  • Genevieve Ritchie

    Yolandi from Die Antwoord is the only person to legitimately make me want to dye my hair blonde and bleach my eyebrows...Saoirse Ronan in Hanna produced a similar effect on me.

  • Trey Wallis

    I have thinner eyebrows, I used to arch them super thin but now I never arch them any more and they just stay slim. They were never really thick.

  • lillylilacs

    In my junior yearbook picture I have pencil thin brows from a bad brow wax, and boy is that a look I will never rock again. If you have naturally fuller brows pencil thin rarely, if ever, looks good.

  • princessbitchface

    I love brows that are bleached or shaved (completely or into nubs), but super thin brows just don't look right on most humans, especially if they're dark and cartoonishly arched. The no-brow look opens up the face and is delicate and sophisticated, but those drawn on skinny black eyebrows look very..hard in a not fun way.
