If you haven’t heard of the online comedy series SRSLY (pronounced “seriously”) yet, let us be the proud first folks to introduce you. If you have heard of it, then you’ll know why we love the two brilliant NYU and Upright Citizen Brigade alumnae behind it. Alexandra Fiber and Danielle Gibson’s short, snappy videos are loosely based on their 20-something lives in New York. The hilarious moments adeptly touch on experiences that many of us have every day. All this week, they’re sharing their beauty inspirations in their typical witty style.
We SRSLY girls take our eyebrows, uh, seriously. We’ve been through the traumatic teenage years of late-’90s over-pluckage, but no more! Nowadays, we can’t get enough of eye-framing brows. Here’s who we look to for brow-spiration on the regular:
Lily Collins: Lily might’ve played Snow White in a film, but even in real life her brows are dark as night and super covetable. She makes us want to break out our darkest brow powder and never. stop. applying.
Jennifer Connelly: The OG eyebrow queen has consistently maintained great brows since the 80s. She has the perfect amount of unruly-but-chic frontal eyebrow fluff; as close as you can get to a unibrow without going full Frida K. Dance the magic dance, J.Con!
Allison Williams: Bringing eyebrow glory to the small screen on HBO’s GIRLS, Allison’s brows are perfectly shaped for her face. The arch compliments her eye shape like Ryan Gosling compliments strong, independent women. Hey Girl, your brows look awesome.
Rachel Weisz: Really owning it in the length department, Rachel’s face-framers could probably double as furry mini-rulers. Our sources tell us James Bond’s Daniel Craig was originally attracted to her because of her fabulous brows!*
Eyebrow products we love:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: Keeps even the straggliest brows in line.
Benefit Brow Zings: We like the Medium shade.
Tweezerman Tweezers: Classic, also great if you get a splinter or something.
We also recommend taking a chance on a professional brow treatment to see how your brows look with a proper shaping, or even tint! (We love Jimena Garcia at Tenoverten in New York.) Danielle got hers done and it changed her life! She’s now married to Daniel Craig**.
