Love affair #5: paintbrush brows and glasses

I must admit this is my favorite brow, though not my own, I am a cross between an angular and a soft arched (+ a few wild strands!), in fact I think a lot of people are a combination (natural or by plucking design) of different brow shapes. The reason I like paintbrush eyebrows is that, like I discovered when playing around with superfine ones, they look best when matched to glasses that don't quite follow their outline, like these first ones below.

The other thing I have noticed is that thicker eyebrows, like these, look even better with fine metal frames as they really show all the personality of thicker brows, no?

The glasses I used in my sketches are from, top to bottom: 1. Prism, 2. Warby Parker, 3. Claire Goldsmith, 4. Maison Martin Margiela for Cutler & Gross
