For Every Woman Who Has Over-Plucked Their Eyebrows, This Instagram Is For You

Back in the late ’90s and early ’00s our tweezing game was on point…or at least we thought it was.  We looked up to A-List celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Gwen Stefani, and Jennifer Lopez to guide our way to looking hot.  We’d go the extra mile to appear like them, even if that meant plucking off most of our eyebrow hair.

@HistoryOfOverPlucking is a friendly reminder that not long ago we had opposite taste from this decade’s thick, lavish brows.  Let’s look back to the glory days when we took extreme measures to shape dramatically thin brows on our foreheads.
