Eyebrow Evolution

So as I was going through an old hard drive to find pictures for tomorrow's blog post (it's a Throwback Thursday post, in case you're wondering), I started noticing how much my eyebrows have changed over the years and thought it would be a fun/funny post to show you the evolution of my brows. 

When I was little, I had some gorgeous (not meaning to blow my own trumpet), thick eyebrows but as I progressed into my teen years, I plucked my brows to death and had some right old tadpoles! I must have thought, 'hey! I've got brows, I'm old enough....shall I pluck them?'. The answer to my past self would be, NO! No you definitely should not pluck them! 

You then get to photos of my brows last year where they're getting there but are still a little tadpole like compared to my natural brows. And last but not least, you get to pictures of my brows today (count how many times I say brows haha); left alone, getting much better but still a little growing left to do before I get them professionally (emphasis on professionally) shaped. 

So now that you have a little back history on my eyebrows, here are the pictures..


Be prepared for some incredibly cringe worthy photographs! ;)

Probably about 7-9 years old (and already taking selfies haha)
Year 7 with Mum (12/13 years old) 
*Sigh*, can we just appreciate my pre-hormonal, clear skin for a moment? 
My best friend and I on Halloween (around 13/14 years old) 
 Year 8 (14 years old) and the plucking begins....

....and it gets worse... 
 15/16 years old (still looking like tadpoles)

Year 11 (16/17 years old) and getting slightly better
 Year 12 (18 years old). At least I knew how to fill them in at this stage....
First year of Uni (19 years old/last year). Look at how much they change shape, put the tweezers down Issy!!
This year (19 turning 20). Still a long way to go but getting there! YAY!

So as you can see, I really needed to listen to my constantly nagging mother dearest and put the tweezers down. If you too are guilty of over-plucking your eyebrows at the moment or in the past, share your stories below! I'd love to hear from you :)

Much Love

  1. Yay you have perfect brows now! I always had crazy brows and I'm SO thankful mum didn't let me over pluck them. I learned from my mum cause she has next to no brows haha. I really want to have mine professionally shaped but I'm just so paranoid they will wax them all off! Love thick brows :) X

    1. Hahaha I'm laughing so much, I'm also paranoid at them waxing them all off! I think they'd probably do a better job than I'm doing though ;) I wish I listened to my Mum like you did, it would have saved me from awful brows for a long time!! X

  2. you have such great eyebrows, I love it
