How Do You Feel About Drawn-In Eyebrows?

Last night at the New York premiere of Hairspray, Liza Minnelli showed up to support her showbiz friends and to catch a viewing. Something I hadn't noticed before is that her eyebrows barely have any hair—perhaps the result of over-waxing, or just a style statement? What are your thoughts on drawn-in brows?

Way too harsh. I overplucked years ago, and it took a LONG time to let them grow back in. You have to be very patient, and there is brow growth stimulator creme you can purchase to help you along. My brows are back, and I only get them professionally done now.

If you have ruined your natural brows or lost them due to illness then you have no choice but to draw or tattoo or you would draw alot of unwanted attention. I 've seen how Bold and down right Rude some people can be...Why, I still have not figured out. I think of it maybe like people who kill, it's because they do not believe in our Lord.

one of my close friends shaves hers off and draws it in. she says people call her 'chola' because of it, although they know she's white. i, personally, hate them. looks tacky and unnatural. love my friend despite her 'brows though. :)

Wow. I'm sort of amazed that there are so many people comments from people that don't realize how potentially rude it is to bash people whose eyebrows are "shaved off." They're not always shaved. There's a such thing as a DISEASE. Would you make fun of a woman who had a breast removed due to cancer? Same thing.

eyebrows are such a curious thing... i had a friend in hs who had terrible (natural) eyebrows. they looked.. really bad. so she had them waxed and tattooed on, which at first, looked ridiculous because they were so dark, but eventually, they lightened up and looked a lot better on her face than her natural ones. in fact.. i think a lot of asian women have tattooed eyebrows. looks good from far away, but up close, really.. weird and bald looking. i've played with a bunch of different eyebrow shapes on my own face, and as much as i wish i could tweeze and shade my eyebrows to match those glamorous arch stencils that come with the anastasia kits... they look ridiculous on me! completely drawn on eyebrows? a definite no if they come out too obvious, dark, and waxy. i definitely prefer filling in with a brow powder.

A friend of mine lost all her eyebrows when she was pregnant and they never grew back. It's really a shame because it looks so awful. I have very light hair on my brows so I need to darken it, but if my face looks different when I'm done it's too dark.

My eyes brows have bare spots and so I fill them in with a pencil and give them a nice natural shape that follows my natural arch. Sometimes I accidently go overboard but I try to keep it simple. I want Rogaine for them so they are just naturally thick. I'd kil for thick eyebrows, I bet by the time I am 30 they all will have fallen out. It sucks, but I am good with a pencil.

i knew girls in highschool who would shave their eyebrows and replace it with a cartoonish line. i always want to smudge them...

It is only fine when you are old and don't have any left.

I don't think shaving off your eyebrows and replacing them with drawn-on ones is a good look for anyone, besides drag queens and amanda palmer: I think her eyebrows are totally fabulous, and would totally try it, if I thought I could pull it off.

If you're using a brow kit and extra care, they shouldn't look drawn in. I remember seeing this lady who had them shaved off and tatooed on her face. It was not cute at all!

I had a bad waxing incident that literally stunted the ends of my brows from growing back in. They look "okay" but not enough where I feel confident enough to go out of the house without trying to fill them in with my MAC brow pencil a bit. I think shaving them off to draw them on is a little much but there are plenty of people in the world with just sparse or light brows who I think filling them in with pencil is perfectly acceptable.

I say only if you NEED to- if for some reason you don't have eyebrow hair (like Jennifer 76 mentioned of someone she knows) then a little defining is acceptable. I fill mine in a bit with a pencil but make sure to avoid the "drawn" effect.

Awful and then you run the rish of traumatizing those around you when you have a rough morning and forget to draw them. Humans don't look right with out eyebrows.

I fill mine in a little because I naturally have some slightly bare spots, but completley drawn on brows make me cringe, I've never seen someone make it look good.

You never know why people draw in their eyebrows. Due to a health problem when I was younger, I haven't had any eyebrows in a long time. I have dark brown hair, so my brows have to be somewhat dark. I am good with makeup so mine look pretty good, though I am still very self conscious about them. It took me a long time to feel attractive with drawn-on brows. I am constantly amazed at how many people feel they have the right to comment on them: from "Do you shave your brows off?- why would you do that??" to "Why don't you have any brows- that's weird" and a million other comments that they probably never thought about saying. They affected me, and my self esteem and it took a long time to be able to blow people off with those sort of things. So PLEASE just be thoughtful about what you say to people. Think whatever you want, but asking questions and openly commenting about someone's face... take a little time to think it through first.

HIDEOUS! She must've gone in with Michael and the rest of the bankrupt, whacked-out Jackson clan for a group discount on Eyebrow tattooing! You know how that turned out for LaToya and company....
