What Do You Think Of People Who Spend Alot of Time on their Eyebrows?

They match up well with guys who spend lots of time lifting weights.

I have mine tattooed on.

No, they don't look like they're tattooed on, they look similar to this:



And yes, those are tattooed brows. I burned one off many years ago and it never grew back, so now I don't spend much time at all on my brows

They're always looking up!

Seriously, I don't know how you'd quantify time but as a guy, I find the painted on eyebrows too 'circus clown - carnival like'. I once had a co worker years ago introduce me to her mom and I had to try so hard from laughing as she looked like a bad imitation of Phyllis Diller doing a vampy Vegas lounge act.

I only pluck them once a month. I pluck maybe four strands under the eyebrow. Mine are thin anyway so no need to pluck a lot.

They are thin because you plucked the hell out of them over a long period of time- Keep plucking once a month and you will have no eye brows...now stop it!

Mine are thin too. They always have been actually.

In a "busy" phase, I got them plucked/waxed once every 3-4 months. This lasted maybe 2 years. Then I noticed they were getting really thin. I took a 6-9 month hiatus to let them grow in. They are still sparse, and I now know it is a symptom of being hypothyroid.

I get them done once every 6 months. Or less. Occasionally I'll pluck a stray if it looks easy. I do think it looks nicer when they are plucked, but I don't have many to spare.

Yeah mine are thin to begin with. I just to the stray ones under the arch. I have far apart normal looking brows.

Well-shaped eyebrows add a lot to a face. Anyone, man or woman, who has eyebrows that are groomed nicely tends to look more polished and sophisticated. It's like having a good haircut. All the extra add-ons don't help of the foundation isn't strong.

If you spend too much time (??) on them it will show later on in life.

I totally agree. If you look at celeb no makeup photos - that's the number one thing that always stands out to me, how they look like regular people without their eyebrows done. Celebs like KimK and Angelina Jolie have stronger natural brows so their no makeup photos arent as shocking, I've noticed.
