What is the key feature that makes a face stand out? While the logical assumption might be your standard nose, eyes, mouth… it’s actually the brows that hold the highest face value. Beyond their function as a filter against dust, dirt and sweat that may get in your eyes, brows have a strong social significance for “emotional expression as well as facial recognition.”
Given the general fascination with lush eyebrows lately, we can’t say we’re surprised. The latest trend in brow transformations? microblading.This semi-permanent treatment embeds organic pigment beneath the skin to add color— while defining and reshaping the eyebrows. This delicate method creates subtle, natural-looking brows by mimicking the precise strokes of eyebrow hairs.
Now, our obsession with arches is finally validated: in a recent study conducted by the University of Lethbridge in Canada, researchers showed people 25 images of celebrities without eyebrows, followed by 25 images of celebrities without eyes. Participants were able to correctly identify 56 percent of the celebrities shown without eyes, but only 46 percent of the celebrities without eyebrows. The findings? Brows are more important than eyes if you want to make a lasting impression.
