To me they’re very important because they frame your face, they’re one of the foundations of a great make-up look, imo 🙂

Essential! If I only had one part of my face to do it would be my brows as they are so soooo! important

I think eyebrows are important in general, because they add so much expression to your face. I’m very minimalist about makeup, but I get my eyebrows shaped and waxed every four weeks to keep them looking well groomed. I also am fortunate in that I have really full brows that don’t need filling in or shading 🙂 Or at least, I’ve never thought they did!

I think they are the *most* important. I don’t wear much makeup but filling in my brows every morning is an absolute necessity. I feel they define and frame my face and help me look more awake and polished. I even carry my mini brow kit (a brow pencil, tiny spoolie, and pocket mirror) in my bag just in case I want to spruce them up. Brow products were actually my “gateway drug” to the world of cosmetics!

[email protected] i cannot think of any thing better to get into make up with than brow products 😀 well its better than cocaine or heroin isn’t it 😛

[email protected] lymbery Yup! (Though I haven’t tried either C/H.)

I never filled in my brows until last year, I did it to accentuate my look for Halloween. I totally didn’t even realize how much of a difference it makes! Now I do it everyday.

yes, they are the most important to me, I always carry an eyebrow pencil with me but not always makeup/,
but I don’t groom them completely purposely especially the upper line and wax only those on my lids.
I like very thick and natural brows.

I think eyebrows frame the face and im looking to invest in some stuff to make my eyebrows neater
sadly I’m not very brilliant with plucking my eyebrows I always butcher them!!!! Really need to start waxing them again!

Eyebrows are really important for me. Naturally I have quite bushy eyebrows and I hated them so as a teenager I plugged the hell out of them. They were too thin, too short for my face and when I look at pictures from back then I look weird. So I grew them back but still had problems getting the right shape so I went to a brow bar, got them done professionally and now I love them 😉

Brows are vital because they frame the face and because they are so important to how we read expression in one another. In FX or character makeup, if I need for someone to look alien or evil, I cover the brows with something like Pros-Aide and concealer. (For the alien part, don’t draw them back in and for evil make them arched, thin and kind of angular.) Look at Disney’s Snow White and the Evil Queen – soft brows versus a set of extreme ones. No wonder the mirror rejected her….

You have no idea how IMPORTANT they are for me an my sisters and my mom!
We were cursed with pretty-much non-existent brows and lashes, as oppose to my boy cousins! I think the most important features on a face are great set of brows and amazing even skin. With them, we basically don’t need make up at all. Unfortunately, I still have to fake them with brow pencil, dried mascara, and tinted moisturizer and concealers. Bah.

Very important!  After years of trying to annihilate my brows into those thin little matchsticks from the 90s, I’ve finally seen the light and grown them out.  Now that I have full groomed brows, I actually feel like I can get away with less makeup on the rest of my face.  Makes me look younger and healthier!

Eyebrows are THE most important to me. Especially when you’ve had your hair dyed, matching the color accordingly can make the BIGGEST difference. Doing my brows are definitely my favorite part in my routine.

VERY. This is the first thing I do after getting my base done. If you want to wear eyeshadows, brows give you a good indicator as to where the eyeshadows should go (like it shouldn’t go past the line between the outer corner of your eye till the end of your brow), but even if you’re not brows bring instant definition to your whole face! It’s probably the most exciting part when it comes to makeup, but get your brow routine settled and I guarantee you won’t regret it!

very very important! with my indian roots ive got thick eyebrows and eyelashes so i never need an eyebrow kit or fill in powders…and will never need them. i get them tweezed by a professional every 6 weeks.

I do too believe they are the most important… I don’t fill mine in, I prefer them the way they are but shaping is very important to me! That’s why I don’t trust anyone to do them for me, they frame the face! 🙂

i’m going to sound like such a tool, but i have REALLY good brows. i don’t wax and i might pluck every three weeks and i never have to fill them in. because they’re naturally dark and i have pale skin they make every look work.

i’m going to sound like such a tool, but i have REALLY good brows. i don’t wax and i might pluck every three weeks and i never have to fill them in. because they’re naturally dark and i have pale skin they make every look work. eyebrows are important though. if i had to, i would spend more time on them. i good defined brow is a great way to look put together.

A few years ago I would have said they weren’t, but I was shown how to fill them in by a makeup artist in a way that looks natural and flattering, and now I think it’s essential. I think the trick is to find the right products for you. For instance I use MAC’s Soft Brown eyeshadow, because that is the perfect color for my light-medium red-brown hair (I know, that’s a lot of in betweens lol). Powders work better for my brows than pencils because of the texture of my hair. I set it with a light wax because I don’t need to “tame” them with a heavy formula, as they pretty much go in the direction that they’re supposed to. Once I was shown what works best for me I found it really enhanced my look and now I do it daily. I’ve also learned to only pluck strays and to not get too aggressive with shaping. I got a lot of compliments from friends when I let them grow in and look more natural.

They are the most important in my opinion. They are also my favorite part of some ones face 😛
