I’ve very casually slipped that fact that I have to pencil in my eyebrows at least a few times, like here, and over here… and lots of ladies everywhere require the aid of a pencil or a little powder to just fill in our brows so they’ll appear more full or more even. Some people have fair complexions. Some people overplucked during the
80’s 90’s uh-oh’s their youth, and need to correct matters, otherwise they look like they’re in a constant state of surprise. Gives a whole new meaning to the term high brow. (By the way, unless you’re a Marlene Dietrich impersonator, this is probably a bad look for you.)
tter-life speeches when I brought home near-failing grades. And it didn’t help that my main teacher that year seemed pretty sure I was an idiot – he tried to console my parents once by saying, “She’s a fast runner… an excellent athlete, really… maybe she’ll get a scholarship to school?” My father nearly had a stroke, I’m so sure.
