Eyebrows! If they're shaped well, they're like the exclamation points of the face...but if they're shaped badly, they can feel more like question marks. But the women of Ladylike wanted to know: Can a little bit of brow shaping really make that big of a difference? We decided to get some celeb-inspired brow makeovers to find out.
Safiya's general brow struggles are mostly about keeping chronic unibrow at bay:
Freddie is basically a brow perfectionist who is never really satisfied with her current brow shape:
And Kristin has very light brows, and so she usually ignores them and relies on her glasses to do most of her face-framing:
For her brow makeover inspiration, Saf picked Priyanka Chopra, whose brows look "very polished without looking fake."
Fred chose the awesome brows of Zendaya because she thinks her brows "are life." But Fred mostly just wants to perfect her own brows.
And since Kristin has hooded eyes, she chose fellow hooded-eye haver Jennifer Lawrence for her brow role model.
First, we had our brows trimmed so they would be even and not get in the way of the wax (which was super important because patchy brows are the worst).
And then...WE WAXED!
After the waxing, we got ’em filled in with powder.
AND THEN IT WAS TIME FOR OUR BIG REVEALS!
And we reeaaaaallly liked them.
Fred was struggling to describe just how much she liked hers:
Fred was happy she kept her natural shape, just with more shaping and filling.
Saf got some careful shaping — especially underneath her brow — which helped her brow bone pop:
And Kristin got brows that were a little more defined and colored in enough where they didn't blend so much into her face:
In the end, we were honestly pretty shocked by how much waxing a little bit of hair changed how we saw our own faces.
