Perfecting The Brow: Meagan Good Says Her Eyebrow Journey Was One Of Her Biggest Beauty Mistakes

"She was like, if nobody's gonna tell you, I'mma tell you: you look like a clown."

Meagan Good

Our good sis, Meagan Good's eyebrow journey has been just that: a journey.

And her openness and willingness to discuss the matter has been refreshing, mostly because she was in the spotlight prior to YouTube videos or TikTok tutorials, so she kinda was the face of figuring it all out. But we've all had our bad days, damnit!

In the past, Good has addressed 'Brow-Gate' directly during a visit to The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy Williams handed out compliments, saying, "Your hair looks excellent, by the way, and your eyebrows still speak to me." Williams points out that Good's brows are the stuff of bold, beautifully arched dreams. She then discuss her journey, with Wendy,

"Nineties brow was pluck everything out, and then eventually it was tattooing," Good told Williams of her personal brow history. She went on to explain that she gave microblading a try when she was 30, but more recently, she decided, "You know what? I need real hair."

And so she got an eyebrow transplant.

Prior to her eyebrow transplant, Good told Allure in 2013 why she decided to get her brows tattooed:

"It used to take me over an hour to do them because I was so particular about the shape and the symmetry. I would go on set, and the makeup artist would change my brows, and I would get frustrated and change them back in my room. So eventually, I went ahead and tattooed them. Problem solved."

But chile that satisfaction was short-lived in the most hilarious way. When in an interview with her sister La'Myia for HelloBeautiful, the two had a blast sharing how far they'd come in fashion and beauty. La'Myia admitted to the struggle and reveled she and Meagan both had "string-like thread" eyebrows, which she dubbed as a "bad, bad, bad choice."

Meagan agreed by telling the story of the time La'Myia's first boyfriend's mother called Meagan herself to give her opinion on their stroke-thin brows.

"She was like, 'If nobody's gonna tell you, I'ma tell you. You're a beautiful girl but you look like a clown. They look shiny like somebody can just walk up and wipe them off.'"

Chiiiiiile, black mamas have no filter!

Once the shock wore off, Meagan decided to ask a few friends to weigh in, to which they agreed. Sis then went on a journey of perfecting her look, with next being a completely full brow look, which their little sister, Lexus described them as "caterpillars," giving Meagan the hint that they were too big.

"It's definitely been an evolution. That's probably the biggest regret besides wearing super short skirts in my 20's. What was I thinking?!"

Alexa, play “Waking up in the morning thinking about so many things...I just wish things would get better...”

(shout out to the people who understood that)

Anyway, in the end, Meagan and her sister can laugh at how far they've come, no matter how far it is. They're both proudly rocking flawless brows, and ultimately figuring out a look that they both love. Love to see it!

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
