No, not there!!!
All of a sudden there seems to be a nod in the direction of extra hair in the eye region - big, dramatic brows, and big dramatic lashes. Yes, women have always desired long, beautiful lashes, and men have always been taken by them, but now it seems people are going to new...lengths (duh, pun intended) for the perfect look. Ladies and gents, I bring you "Latisse".
Generic Name: Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution
Date of Approval: December 24, 2008
What it is: A novel treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Huh? Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having "inadequate" or not enough eyelashes.

For those of you who feel insecure about your eyelash length and thickness, you can now thank the makers of Botox for your panacea. I've been seeing commercials for this new drug everywhere, and the more I see it, the weirder it seems. In case you have any doubts about the product, they have BEFORE AND AFTER shots on their website, as well as TESTIMONIALS.
Whatever happened to the trusty eyelash curler and mascara? Anyway, moving north to the brows we see a similar trend: big, thick, dramatic...take a looksy:
Will guys like the thick brows as much as they like the long lashes? No they will not. Will they even notice if you grow yours out? Hmmm most likely not. Will women look at you and go "oh my god who does your brows?!" - I believe they will. Nothing like a strong brow to accentuate your eyes and your cheakbones, and just to give you a more dramatic look in general. If you can handle the growing out process, I suggest you go for it. And if you're in NYC, I suggest going to Shobha to have them threaded and re-shaped - those women are masters and they all have perfect brows.
That's all for today! Have a hairy, happy weekend.
