Naturally Bold Brows
Just looking at Cara Delevingne makes you think that she’s a forward-thinking, assertive woman—and that’s because of her strong eyebrows. If you’ve got ’em too, then you likely have a ton of self-confidence, are very decisive, and work hard to get things done—there’s no point in lollygagging, as far as you’re concerned.
The downside: It’s pretty easy to piss you off, and it doesn’t take much for you to feel frustrated. Every once in a while, try to take a few deep breaths. Not everyone feels quite as confident as you in their decision-making process, so give ’em a few seconds to get on your level before moving forward.
Naturally Thin Brows
Cara may be in Taylor Swift’s squad, but their eyebrows are speaking different languages. Taylor’s are way thinner naturally, and if yours are too, then you may struggle with making decisions and like to get input from others before moving forward with a concrete plan. It may also mean that you have self-confidence issues, so surrounding yourself with friends who lift you up is wise. And since you like to take as few risks as possible, you carefully visualize how situations might play themselves out—which, in Taylor’s case, makes sense because her new Wildest Dreams video looks a whole lot like the VMAs-winning Blank Space. Hey, if it ain’t broke…right, Tay?
Not-So-Naturally Thin Brows
Girl, if you’re over-plucking your eyebrows, we want you to stop. Not only is it not on trend, but it also reduces all the good qualities that ladies with bold brows have (see the assertive, uber-confident description above). Researchers also recently discovered that this type of brow grooming can lead others to believe that you’re narcissistic. General rule of thumb: let those beautiful brows be as full as you can—they look gorgeous in their natural shape.
All hail, Queen B! While she definitely has some boldness going on—explaining her run the world persona—it’s Beyonce’s eyebrow shape that has us intrigued. The curved roundness to them means she—and you, if you’re mimicking the same look—wants to create as many win-win situations as possible. That makes you a savvy business person, and someone people like to be around and work with.
You have a natural warmth that radiates off you, and scientists even discovered that eyebrows like yours (high on the inner brow) tell others that you’re totally trustworthy. So don’t be afraid to host the next book club at your place—people tend to feel very comfortable when you’re around, and you usually go the extra mile to make sure they’re well taken care of.
You’re a very intellectual type, a woman who likes to be logical and make decisions based on facts, rather than emotions. This is great for your professional development, as it’s unlikely for you to let your personal feelings cloud your judgment. Impulsive decisions aren’t really your thing, so don’t be afraid to pair up with a friend—one with peaked brows, perhaps—who will help you loosen up every now and again and experience things in the moment.
These are brows that are naturally higher up on your face, rather than almost immediately above the eye, and they signal perfectionism (which might be why Olivia Wilde always seems to look #flawless). Usually the person with them sets high expectations for themselves and the people around them, so you’re definitely a go-getter who gravitates toward working independently instead of in a group.
If that sounds like you, just keep in mind that you may come off as intimidating, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing—it’s actually a strong trait to have when trying to land a big deal or nab that promotion. And even though you might not love everything people pick out for you (you’re likely the re-gifter of the bunch), you also have the best manners—so no one will ever know.
If you’ve got upside-down Vs like Jamie King, you’re someone who thinks, learns, and reacts at warp-speed. You tend to go wherever your emotions take you, and don’t always stop to think things through. Again, this isn’t always a bad thing—you’re the perfect person to make gut-check, game-time decisions. And in your personal life, well, you’re definitely the most spontaneous; friends come running when they’re ready for a night of fun and laughter.
Brows That Don’t Match Your Hair
Let me take a step back, because you—and Rita Ora—are ready to take center stage. Jumping on a big beauty trend like this, where you don’t go all matchy-matchy with your hair, means you aren’t afraid to take risks or get noticed. Because the more noticeable your eyebrows are, the more “large and in charge” you appear to be. In other words, if you’re in a situation where you need people to instantly notice that you are a driven woman who won’t mess around, this is the look you should go for.
