Thin or Thick eyebrows?

Ladies, which one are you?

And why?

I nominate this as the strangest first post on any forum ever.

Otherwise, welcome to FT, however your eyebrows may be.

Somewhere in between! Tweezered into shap, but neither bushy, nor pencil thin!

Agreed!

To reply to the question, tweezered into shape and use eyebrow powder and brush to fill in the gaps from when they refused to grow back properly post-chemo.

Saw a girl/woman today with very dark and very thick eyebrows that looked so wrong...and it wasn't that she was making a fashion statement, she just got it completely wrong!

Welcome to Flyertalk!

Oh, and . . . mine are groomed, by the way.

Deliberately thin eyebrows looked good on Jean Harlow and Myrna Loy. And Faye Dunaway in Chinatown.

Mine are pretty much the same as hers. I prefer low maintenance.

Welcome to FT!

I guess my brows are in between....I do try to keep them neat with a nice arch.

Mine are on the thicker end of the spectrum. I periodically have them waxed into shape and then try to maintain by tweezing until the next waxing. Thin brows do not look quite right on me.

Welcome to FT!
Is this some kind of survey?

Mine have an arch and are well groomed and a cross between thick and thin....a few little hairs and my whole face feels dirty!

Mine are in between, but some hairs are turning grey. I color my own hair and do try to color my brows, but some of those grey hairs are very stubborn.
I would pluck them out but my mom's words keep coming back to me, "If you pluck a grey hair, two will grow back in its place." Okay, maybe not true, but I keep those few trimmed back, but not plucked.

Oh, and I love the Smashbox brow filler. Blends in beautifully and makes them look fuller:

Mine are natural. On the rare occasions I decide to shape them, I go for a professional waxing. Judging on the comments (or more specifically, lack thereof) from friends who see me regularly, my natural eyebrows just aren't wild enough to be different from waxed eyebrows.

Mine are right in the middle of thick and thin, naturally.

I have a nice arch to mine and lately been going a little thicker with my eyebrows. Read somewhere thick makes you look younger as when you age they naturally thin out. Not sure if its true but I was sucked in!!
