  1. I’m sorry but… I must wonder why no one catered to the chicks eyebrows in picture one. How manly looking! The makeup is nice though.

  2. Commenting to the comment above – I think that’s the purpose/trend – manly eyebrows.

    I think I like the look – not exactly sure though =/ I do wonder how Carbon was used in this look.
