Skinny eyebrows dominated the 90’s. But with the resurgence of 90’s fashion, those little brows didn’t seem to catch the trend train. Until now.
We’ve embraced the bushy, Cara Delavigne-esque brow and even dabbled in the bleached look but when British Vogue released their latest cover, the tables suddenly turned.
Enter Rihanna. She graced the iconic September issue with razor-thin brows and the world went crazy. Not only did it raise a few brows (haha), but it also sent some people into a panic. A panic that was caused by the thought of plucking their bushy brows that they’ve been growing out for the last two years. The horror. But before you reach for the tweezers, most celebrity makeup artists are not convinced this trend will catch on.
We suspect they went for this look because it would make a statement and is an incredibly editorial look which is what Vogue is essentially all about.
While we could leave it at that, we couldn’t help but share some of the classic memes circulating the web.
So here are some of the best reactions to the thought of these razor-thin brows possibly making a comeback:
