I started watching Downton Abbey and though I enjoy the show, and the peek into society 100 years ago in England, I find myself distracted by the actress who plays Mary Crawley. According to IMDB, the actress is Michelle Dockery, and I think she plays the naïve, aloof and self absorbed Mary well. But it is her eyebrows that garner all of my attention. The lift like wings above her eyes and provide such an aristocratic look to her that I cannot help but consider them every time she enters a scene. Glorious, really.
I have been long in love with sharp and well done eyebrows. Overplucked – too short or too narrow – horrify me. It is my great consternation that I cannot see properly, nor have the skill with make-up to create such masterpieces. Oh, I covet.
