Trends come a dime a dozen year after year. From home trends to clothing trends to beauty trends, we’ve seen it all in 2017—from the game changing to the truly cringe-worthy. And if there’s one life lesson we seem to learn (and subsequently unlearn…) while looking back over time, it’s that keeping things simple usually does us more favors than not. However, we’ll always remember 2017 (affectionately referred to as The Year of the Brow) as the year everybody (even your mama and your mama’s mama) hopped on the brow train—for better or for worse.
We’ll start by saying this: a well-shaped brow is an unbeatable accessory that if executed correctly, can transform your daily makeup routine into a striking work of art. However, by the looks of some of the brows we’ve seen out on the street—in the spirit of tough love—we all could use some more honest friends. It’s time to shape up, sisters. If The Year of the Brow is going to stick around for round two, it’s time to go to brow boot camp.
