Yeah. It’s only a matter of time… The clock is ticking… Rihanna recently showed up on the cover of British Vogue with a set of sparse, skinny brows, and even though I read somewhere that her makeup artist didn’t pluck them off (but instead did some makeup witchery to make it look like they were removed), I’m thinking that if you see the look on Riri, it’s already way ahead of the curve of what’s happening now.
We’ll start to see them out in the wild again sooner than later — first on “fashion” folks, but then it’ll filter on down to us regular peeps. I’d give it three years…
For the record, I’m 1,000% not ready to go back to ’90s-style brows. Even when I wore them in the ’90s and early aughts — which was when this top picture was taken! (It was for an author photo for my previous life as a freelancer.) — they were a reference to ’70s brows, and in the ’70s, they were referencing the ’30s.
What’s old is always new again!
But I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the extremely skinny brow situation… I’m probably going to keep mine the way they currently are, and if I do get the urge to pluck them, because one should never say never (especially with beauty things), I’ll probably use some concealer and creative placement to temporarily scratch the itch.
Do you think ’90s skinny brows will ever come back in style? If they do, how likely are you to rock them?
