And here’s what she did to overcome it
Full, feathered eyebrows have experienced a resurgence in the beauty community over the last couple of years and TBH, after looking back on the thin, over-plucked and penciled-in arches of our youth, we are very grateful for their comeback.
One celeb who knows all too well the horror of bad brows is Natalie Bassingthwaighte. When we caught up with the singer, actress, and Australian ambassador for Ultherapy, she revealed she too was not immune to an over-plucked arch.
“I had THE worst eyebrows! I had McDonald’s shaped arches that were so skinny,” she told us. Don’t believe her? Check out this photo from 2004 of Natalie’s retro brows:
Luckily for Natalie, the damage wasn’t permanent. Thanks to a little time and patience, she now sports a truly enviable pair of arches.
Want to know how she achieved her magnificent brow transformation? According to Natalie, the secret is to ensure you make time for regular brow appointments. “I go to this amazing woman in Melbourne and I’ve been to her for ten-plus years,” she explains. As it turns out, Carmen (Natalie’s eyebrow queen) also had a hand in shaping the arches of Aussie babe Margot Robbie. With a celebrity resume like that, we might just book ourselves on the next flight to Melbourne!
