The eyebrows have it

Remember the time I dyed my eyebrows jet black and then couldn’t go out in public for about a week? Yeah, I learned nothing from that. NOTHING.

I did try tweezing them last night, in a bid to try and make them look a little less… dramatic. So now I have jet black eyebrows THAT ARE ALSO REALLY THIN, like I drew them on with a biro or something. Another pile of holiday snaps, ruined, then. Still, at least I can cross "Benefit Highbrow" off my list of things to buy before my trip

Speaking of The List (God, I love lists, don’t you? This week I have made three: Thing to Buy, Things to Pack – actually that counts as two lists because technically we have Things to Pack in Suitcase and Things to Pack as Handluggage – and Things to Do), I’ve managed to buy everything on it except for the pony, so we’re actually doing pretty good here. I am, anyway. Terry? Not so much, really, because Terry’s computer decided to get a virus yesterday morning, so he spent the entire day re-installing Windows and having all kinds of virus-related fun, meaning that he gets to spend all of today doing the work he should have done yesterday. Let the good times roll, people!

    I had the exact opposite problem. My eyebrows are naturally black, but since I frequently dye my hair red (your hair in that little picture in the upper righthand corner of the page is exactly the shade I want) last year I went through a phase where I was bleaching out my eyebrows and dying them red to match my hair. It looked okay for about a day but once the red faded and my eyebrows grew out (i.e. the next day) it was sort of a disaster, and not helped at all by the fact that I was also was going through a phase in which I plucked my eyebrows away to near nothing-ness.

    This is why I only get my eyebrows waxed. Because I am incapable of doing them right and not fucking up.

    It's a "luxury" expense, but totally needed in my opinion.

    Oh crap, I remember when I did the black eyebrow thing too. I'm naturally blonde and had been dyeing my hair black for ages, so decided to get my eyebrows done to match.

    Two words: Never again.
