Matching Eyebrows

Suki Rexen made a post in the DMC blog about matching eyebrows to hair bases color tones.  This is not a sale promo but prompting a discussion about an apparent trend in RL, where RL models are sporting dramatically darker and thicker eyebrows….  According to an article I read, recently, matching eyebrows to hair color can take “years” off of someone, making them look younger and smoother. Not too many models have to worry about that, but could it work in reverse in SL?  Meaning, adding age and “maturity” to an avatar’s face? What’s your opinion?  Suki will be holding a discussion, presentation, on this topic in the next couple of weeks at Models Workshop. Just in time to put your new “photography” skills in practice that you have been learning in Monica Blaunt’s photography presentation in June! Originally a repost on: My Reflections
