Cara Delevingne’s Bleached Brows

Cara Delevingne Bleached Brows

Eyebrows maketh the woman. That’s a saying, no? Or it certainly should be… if the (slightly scary) sight of Brow Queen Cara sans her slugs is anything to by. We’re all for an avant-garde beauty trend (I’m totes going all out ‘Anthony Vaccarello’ this Hallowe’en, with half black-lacquered ear lobes, and will probs ‘do a Dries’ and fake a lip ring (because I’m totally too scared to do it for realz)) – but the invisi-brow? I get the brow backlash after almost a decade of face-bush obsession, but Delevingne without eyebrows is like Santa sans beard (cue brain explosion).

Sure, she’s still a TOTAL BAE and being only twelve twenty two, can afford to add a year or ten, but for most of us mortals who don’t have a nose like a button and cheekbones to cutchoo, the no brow thing is an absolute no-go… It’s ageing (and a little bit alien), so don’t reach for the ‘Jolen Creme’ just yet…
