If eyes are the windows to the soul, then eyebrows are the window drapes to the soul. They define your look, they shape your face, and they're just about the most important thing about you. Maybe that's overstating it. But there's no denying: brows are in.
Part of the reason? The beautiful Cara Delevingne. Just look at these brows:
Cara helped start the "bushy brow revolution." Women everywhere are letting their eyebrows go wild. The new prevailing wisdom says: If you've got it, flaunt it. If you don't have it... make it look like you do.
The depressing truth is that we're not all as well-endowed as Cara when it comes to brows. But that doesn't mean we have to be content with what God gave us. There are plenty of ways to redefine your most defining feature. And there are plenty of reasons to do so.

What more do you need when there's a mirror on the back of you iPhone? The answer is nothing. You don't need anything else. Except maybe the Gold and Pink Mirror Cases to round out your collection. Anyway...
If you're not stoked to get some banging brows yet, there might be something wrong with you. Or maybe you just need a little inspiration. The Fuck Yeah Pretty Eyebrows Tumblr is a great place to start. There are plenty of fine specimens there to get you geared up about your brows. Just remember- your eyebrows are the drapes over the window to your soul, no one else's. So let your personality shine through. There's no right or wrong here.
OH MY GOD WE TAKE IT BACK. THAT IS WRONG. THAT IS VERY, VERY WRONG.
If you're tempted to follow in that woman's footsteps, we'd like to remind you that there are some great options for getting your eyebrows treated professionally. New York-style Brow Bars are starting to pop up everywhere. It's worth taking a look on Yelp to see what's nearby.
