Facts about your eyebrows

We gave you some facts about eyelashes so it’s only right that we give you some facts about eyebrows! Don’t worry though, your eyebrows don’t have tiny Demodex mites living on them, at least, we don’t think they do….

Not everyone finds uni-brows attractive but hey, that’s personal preference. Before eyebrows became a trend back in the old days, uni-brows were a sign of intelligence.

Eyebrow gel is relatively a new thing. Before gel for your eyebrows was made, people used clear mascara as an alternative to keep those pesky stray hairs in place, although clear mascara is a very similar product, eyebrow gel is formulated so that it’s stronger in keeping your eyebrows in place all day and on the plus side, most eyebrow gels are waterproof!

 

Mona Lisa has no eyebrows

Yes, this is a very random fact, we know. But we bet you didn’t notice that the famous lady in the famous painting had no eyebrows! However, reports from 2007 suggest that she did have eyebrows once upon a time, before Leonardo Da Vinci revised the painting and took them away. Or, another ridiculous theory is that her eyebrows got unintentionally wiped away when the painting was being cleaned!
