Here's my dilemma. I'm often BBS sly and I have very fair skin with dark auburn hair color, including my eyebrows. So my eyebrows really stand out especially being BBS.
There are two ways that people respond to my eyebrows:
1) Wow! You have AMAZING eyebrows! Who "does" your eyebrows? Where do you go (what salon)?
(The answer to this question is that I shape my eyebrows very little - I keep them mostly natural but try to avoid looking "mad" or having "bitchy resting face" look by shaping them just a little bit.)
2) Do you REALLY have cancer or don't you? Cause most people lose their eyebrows and it's weird that you still have eyebrows.
My personal take on my eyebrows differs from public opinion:
I personally don't like my eyebrows being very dark. I want to keep my eyebrows because 1} they show off my facial expressions and I make lots of funny faces, 2) I'd look weird without them - God gave us eyebrows, and 3) I don't have cancer and I don't want to look like I do (although I already look like I do because I use a wheelchair and I'm often sickly looking to begin with because...I'm sick!)
Hair dye to make my eyebrows a little less prominent seems like too much work and too toxic with those chemicals. Nah. I used to trim my eyebrows so that the hairs were shorter which did lighten the color a little, and I might try that again.
But I know many women actually want to DARKEN their eyebrows using "eyebrow pencils" (in every makeup aisle in America)...but I just find the look too severe and my brows are already really dark so I have no need for a pencil.
Just wondering how other sly gals feel about this. Am I just the weird one? Or do you feel like your eyebrows are a bit too stark because of your bald head?
Open to hearing from the gents too!
