11 Celebrity Eyebrow Fails We Can ALL Learn From

July 25, 2016

It happens to the best of us.

Celebrities – they’re just like us. They choose the wrong shade of foundation, bite their nails, and over-pluck their eyebrows.

The latter has happened to the best of us, leaving us looking like sperm-brow weirdos for months and making brow products our inevitable BFFs. 

Brow expert and founder of iBoutique, Bree Cowen, is here to fill us in (pun intended) on her fave celeb eyebrow fails through the ages and what we can all learn from them…

1. Rihanna


Rihanna has ‘work, work, work, work, worked’ on those brows (and everything else). Cowen gives the look two thumbs up.

“By thickening her brows and creating a defined slight arch, she has polished her look and receives my accolade as the best celebrity brow transformation.”

2. Tyra Banks


Supermodels are renowned for setting trends and providing the rest of us with inspiration, but the barely-there-over-arched-brows is one trend we all need to sweep under the rug.

“Tyra transformed her look and now rocks one of our fave natural-looking brow shapes,” says the brow expert.

3. Lauren Conrad


The former reality star left her days of The Hills behind, and thankfully, those pin-thin eyebrows too.

“Now she has clearly learnt the basics of eyebrow 101 – brush and fill,” explains the brow artist.

4. Megan Fox


Mega-babe Megan Fox has clearly transformed more than just her brows, but her new arches were definitely a needed improvement.

“She has really hit the mark on the shade and shape for her face,” Cowen remarks.

5. Taylor Swift


Gone are the days of Taytay’s pin-thin brows from 2007! Eight years on and T-Swizz is still sporting thin, but much more defined brows. Cowen approves of this look saying Swift has, “perfected the soft and subtle brow. A+ to her glam squad.”

6. Beyonce


Our Queen B can do no wrong – right…?

“Unfortunately in her Destiny’s Child phase, we definitely count her eyebrows as a bit of a fail,” says Cowen.

“Transitioning to a fuller brow, she now nails a more polished look by keeping a bold yet soft brow to complement her face shape.”

7. Christina Aguilera

The singer changes her look – and her eyebrows – regularly, but Cowen says her best look includes fuller, more defined arches.

“A fuller brow works wonders for her and is better suited to her features.”

8. Gwen Stefani


Gwen swapped the drawn-on look for a more natural filled-in effect.

“No doubt Gwen thought her eyebrow game was strong in the 90s,” says Cowen.

“But I’m sure we can all appreciate this transformation.”

9. Miley Cyrus


Miley came in like a wrecking ball and completely overhauled those brows. Cowen approves.

“From pin-thin to a soft feathered look, Miley said goodbye to her younger self, and thankfully to those brows.”

10. Demi Lovato


It looks like Miley and Demi had the same glam team at the Disney studio, and luckily for their eyebrows, they’ve moved on. Demi now sports a thicker more striking brow, which, according to Cowen, is, “the perfect combo for her dark hair and strong jawline.”

11. Khloe Kardashian


Khloe is known for her ‘revenge body’, but according to Cowen, her revenge brows are just as impressive.

“She now has a much softer shade and curve that compliments her face,” explains the brow expert.

“We can probably thank her portable glam team for this transformation.”
