Behold, the power of the brow

So my sister bought me an eyebrow pencil, which has been useful to me since I have pale hair and my eyebrows tend to wash away into my pale skin (oh, to be Peter Gallagher with his ridiculously discernable eyebrows).

Anyhoo . . . I have amused and delighted myself playing with my new found cosmetic toy! Changing the shape of your brows can completely alter the look of your face. For example, yesterday I drew in some magnificent-high-archers and spent my entire Sunday with my face in a constant state of delightful SURPRISE!!!!

My point is that we tend to take our eyebrows for granted, and underestimate their tremendous power. Just look at what a slight change in brow contour does for the Muppets cast:

Quite a menacing crew, aren't they?
It looks like they are about to perform the . . .

. . . most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational, KILLING RITUAL!
` ` ` This is what we call the Muppet Show! ¯

All hail the eyebrow! If I were allowed only one beauty product/utensil for the remainder of my life, I would choose my tweezers.

Yes, I have pinned my husband down to work on those overgrown bushes of his. He doesn't tolerate much and uses his wrestling skill to quickly body slam me.

You should sedate him and give him Elizabeth Taylor brows!
