    I have very expressive eyebrows, and I am very fond of them. There's a scar that runs through the narrower end of my right brow, and youthful attempts to create symmetry created strange experiments in shaping that I largely avoid these days. I trim my brows with tweezers about every other week, and recently have tried "shading" the sparser parts with an eyeliner brush, but I expect only I notice the difference.

    I'm rather fond of eyebrows and loathe the pencil-thin trend so many women seem to go for.

    Mmmmhmmmm. For better or worse this look makes me dismiss people as trash pretty quickly...I can't believe how its being actively marketed...

    Anyway, I like my eyebrows. Big, strong. Like the guy who played spock up there...
    @Hephaestus: I too can only raise my left eyebrow independently.

I can almost smell it just thinking about it.
    Bright one colour blocks of eyeshadow look rather weird but I mostly associate it with girls who like to experiment with make-up.

    I'm now thinking someone should work up a two axis chart for creep taxonomy with little zones for orientation.
    Well, you can make the comment about earlobes a bit creepier if you follow it with "they look like nibbling them might be enjoyable".

    It would have to be a complicated chart since the creepiness of a sentence depends on body language, distance from the person you are talking to, are there other people around and whether you tried to touch the body part you complimented (among other things). Perhaps it needs to be an app that uses complicated calculations to give you an approximation of the creepiness of what you just said to someone. Then everyone would just stare intensely at their smartphones when they talk to other people. Oh wait, they do that already.

    This is the first thing that came to mind when I read your post.

    I used to be able to move my eyebrows independently of each other but out of habit I mostly just raise the left one so I've lost the ability to do much with the right. I have been told that I have really expressive eyebrows though. When I'm particularly animated, they will punctuate what I say.

    Same.

    I am scarcely away of the basics of my personal appearance half the time, so niceties such as this are completely beyond me. As it is I am pretty sure I have fairly generic eyebrows.

    Eyebrows are great, but so are pointy noses. <3

    I'm left-handed but I can only raise my right eyebrow. Have I just been using the wrong hand my whole life?

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    I don't pay enough attention to them. I get them waxed when I do the rest of what I have to wax, but I don't make them too thin, I dislike that.

    If I could remember to pay attention to the faces I'm making at any given time, I'd refrain from raising my eyebrows too much because my forehead wrinkles when I do, and I also dislike that.

    I prefer to shave them. I hear the Frankenstein look is considered sexy.
