What Your Brows Say About You

These days, it seems like everywhere we look, someone is talking or writing about eyebrows — including us. For the most part, we’ve kept our coverage of the popular beauty topic to shaping and upkeep, but lately, we’ve been digging a little deeper into the brow realm. We like to think they can say a lot about who we are! So, for funsies, we decided to examine brows and their relation to our personalities and interests. Check out this guide, and remember, it’s all in good fun!


Untamed Brows

Like your burly brows, you like to run wild. You are not a person who colors inside the lines and you most definitely cannot be bothered to tweeze your brows. And with full, bold brows being all the rage right now, why should you? You prefer to live life on your own terms and we wouldn’t have it any other way. However, if you decide to brush-up any of those rogue hairs, may we suggest a tool like Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Drama, that keeps your brows in control without changing their natural, untamed state.

Curved Brows

In addition to having a creative mind, you are quite the savvy businesswoman! And as if that wasn’t enough, studies have shown that your brows signify trustworthiness, so it’s likely that you’re that friend everyone counts on when things get a little rough. Keep that curve curvy by trying a two-in-one tool (like Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon) that will color and shape your brows at once.

Naturally Thick Brows

Confidence is not an issue for you, especially since you were born with the trendiest brows ever! Just like your brows, you’re quite the bold, assertive one. And while you were blessed with naturally full brows, you definitely like to keep them under control (like everything else in your life). Brow gel is (or should be) your go-to for showing those brows who’s running the show. We recommend a product like Lancôme Sourcils Gel.

Straight Brows

You fall more on the logical and intellectual side of things, and aren’t one for impulsive, irrational decisions. You have your daily routines — from makeup to meals — down to a science. To keep your brows on the straight and narrow, enlist the help of an ultra-slim pencil like Urban Decay Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush. While we love your solid, unwavering brows, we encourage you to shake things up once in awhile and try something a little impulsive!

Arched Brows

You’re a total dreamer and the sensitive one in your group. That being said, you like to keep details of your life private and have a stubborn streak about you. We promote being stubborn with your makeup routine, especially in relation to your brows. Don’t sacrifice that natural, angled shape! Make sure you tweeze regularly (and properly) and keep a brow kit handy (like NYX Eyebrow Kit with Stencil) to make sure your shape is always on-point.

Thin Brows

Oh, you indecisive one! Your sparse brows tell us you have a rough time making decisions and like to enlist the opinions of others before taking a side on anything. And while we like to encourage you to go with your gut a little more often, we would like to put our two cents in when it comes to your brows. Whether your slim brows are by choice or by nature, may we suggest filling them out a bit? We’re not just pushing this because full, bold brows are in, but thin, sparse brows have a way of instantly aging you. And we know you don’t want that! Read up on how this secret trick can give those brows a boost!
