Blue Eyebrows: Snob or Slob?

It’s one thing to dye your hair blue for a quick stint, but coloring your brows? Even though you’re covering less real estate, it makes a much bigger statement. Possibly one that’s a little cartoon characterish. If you want to get the look for yourself, try Anastasia’s Hypercolor brow and lash tint.

Best in Brow Beauty: It’s All in the Eyes

I spent most of my college years plucking and prodding my brows until they were as thin and perfect as Kate Moss’, which is pretty ironic because now I spend all of my time filling them in!

Eyebrow Tattoos: Strictly Temporary
