The Celebrity Brow Transformations We Can't Get Over

Lindsey Metrus

Because of the gorgeous way full, bold brows look on a person, we can't believe that purposefully pencil-thin arches were ever a trend. Bigger, thicker brows seem to be on every woman's agenda, so much so that brow-enhancing serums are of the moment. We have a whole slew of celebrities to thank for this brow revival, influencing us to toss our wax kits and tweezers aside and let those babies grow.

While we often peek back at our own high school–era brows and compare them to today's groomed, powdered, and penciled-in arches, we thought we'd have a look into the yearbooks of different celebrities and how their own brows have changed—and we can't believe how much a little shaping and filling can do.

Keep scrolling to see their before-and-after brow transformations!

Emma Stone debuted feathered, natural brows at this year's Venice Film Festival—a gorgeous deviation from her usual narrow, perfectly manicured arches.

Holy BROWS. Demi Lovato's always had a great set of arches, but lately her brow game is strong, and we love the vixen vibe it's helping her give off. Try dipping a small angled brush into Anastasia Brow Powder Duo ($23) to do some major sculpting like hers.

Like the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Khloé's perfected her beauty look with perfectly groomed brows (seriously, do they have a brow guru on speed dial?).

While we're fully entranced by Selena Gomez's subtly colored contacts in this "after" shot, it's the songstress's sultry dark brows we're really envying.

Who says blondes can't rock dark, bold brows? Even with practically platinum locks, Julianne Hough stuns with her tinted arches. Thinking about doing your own tinting at home? Read our helpful brow-tinting how-to first.

We're convinced that Zendaya came out of the womb with a perfect set of brows. While her transformation is a bit subtler (a slightly darker pencil can do wonders), it's vampy in the best way possible.

Lauren Conrad's come a long way from her Hills days, trading in her once on-trend thin brows for some power arches. If you're also blond (and even if you aren't!), try filling in your brows with a no-fail color like Too Faced Bulletproof Brows ($30) in Universal Taupe.

We can't believe how different Jessica Alba looks with light and dark brows. While both are stunning (can she really ever go wrong?), we love how much the dark arches play up her eyes.

Leighton Meester let her arches grow in fuller and ditched the precise tweezing and waxing for a more natural look.

Take a look at how much fuller Shay Mitchell's brows in the second image. The mastermind behind these arches? Kelley Baker. Excuse us while we go book an appointment.

Taylor Hill told us she was made fun of for her mega-full brows as a teen, but we'd kill for a set of naturally bold arches like the model's. She's since groomed them a bit more and lightened them just a touch.
