When it comes to a person’s facial features, we often compliment them on their gorgeous eyes, chiseled cheekbones or dazzling smile. We do not often give much thought to eyebrows. When was the last time you told a person they had a wonderful set of brows? Never? However, you definitely do notice when someone’s eyebrows are messed up. And not even celebrities are immune to bad brows.
When it comes to Hollywood, makeovers are common. The facial features some celebrities are born with are sometimes considered mere suggestions. A lot of celebrities don’t overhaul their entire image but the majority of them will opt for a few tweaks here and there. A bit of eyebrow shaping can make all the difference and completely change someone’s look. You’ve seen enough makeover shows to have realized that.
That doesn’t mean that eyebrow makeovers are always for the better. Sometimes when you start plucking or shaping your brows, it is difficult to stop. It can become an addiction and the end result is over-plucked brows that make the celebs look like they are constantly surprised. Pamela Anderson is the poster girl for super skinny eyebrows. Another issue is completely changing the shape of your natural eyebrows. A lot of celebrities have good natural eyebrow shapes but for some reason they feel the need to completely change them. The result is unflattering and completely unnatural brows. These 10 celebrities actually had good brows but they went too far with their makeovers and really messed up their eyebrows.
10 Lady Gaga
9 Courtney Stodden
We have watched reality TV star Courtney Stodden go through a series of image changes. Her hair, lips and chest have undergone the most dramatic transformations but her eyebrows have also changed over time. She went from dark brows with a flattering arch to vey pointed brows. Instead of a nice smooth arch, her thick brows come to a dramatic point before turning into a skinny tail. The drastic shape makes her look like she permanently has her eyebrows raised. It is a look that suits no one. They also have a very messy texture which is a bit confusing considering how groomed they are.
Singer Brandy has fallen victim to the #eyebrowsonfleek brow fade. It is a look that is all over Instagram but it just doesn’t work in real life. Brandy originally had good arched eyebrows. They were thinner in the 1990s because that was the most popular look but she didn’t go as tweezer crazy as some other celebs. Her brows were still flattering to her face. Brandy’s eyebrows are thicker now but the inner corners are non-existent. The fading makes it look like she is missing a chunk of them. On top of that, they go from invisible to a very dramatic arch. The rounded shape was more flattering for her face.
7 Ariana Grande
6 Lil’ Kim
It’s no secret that Lil’ Kim has gone through a massive beauty transformation over the years. Not many of her features have remained the same, and her eyebrows can be included in that. They have been ultra skinny, thick and round, dark, and very light. When you look back at early photos of her, you see how her brows had a nice shape and how they were nicely maintained. Now, Lil’ Kim’s eyebrows are way too long. They are practically touching her hairline. If that wasn’t bad enough, there is no longer an arch in them. There is absolutely no resemblance between what her eyebrows look like now and in the older photo. Granted, that is something we could say about most of Lil’ Kim’s face.
5 Sylvester Stallone
It isn’t just the ladies who struggle with their eyebrows, the men do too. When it comes to men’s eyebrow grooming, it is essential that they do not look too manicured. Sylvester Stallone’s natural brows are on the thinner side and they have a nice arch, so he really didn’t need to do anything to them. However, his brows have gradually become more rounded. Now, they make him look like he is always surprised. To make matters worse, they are not symmetrical. Sly’s right eyebrow is straighter at the inner corner of his eye before it suddenly curves up.
4 Amber Rose
3 Meagan Good
2 Pamela Anderson
1 Christian Slater
Christian Slater has been frequently photographed wearing a dapper pair of glasses but when he takes them off, you will wonder what exactly happened to his eyebrows. Christian had dark eyebrows with a strong natural arch. He went through a period when his eyebrows became so arched that is was comical because he looked surprised yet angry at the same time. Now his eyebrows are barely visible. You have to look really closely to see if he actually does have any brows or whether they were completely shaved off. They are there, but they are just very, very faint and quite sparse.
