To brow or not to brow...

...that is the question indeed, after reviewing fashion week's beauty proposals that during this season particularly focussed on eye brows and generally left the rest of the face quite pale and sober.

After last season's nearly disappearing bleached/blonde brows, this season, make-up artists were not quite so in accord with their decisions.

Pat McGrath, one of the most acknowledged make-up artist/goddesses of catwalk make-up worldwide herself even proposed conflictive trends on different runways. Starting from Prada, where the prominent, yet well groomed brows dominated clearly the models' faces to Balenciaga, where some of the models were featured with pastel-ly brows, ranging from ice-blue to pastel green - actually quite reminding me of the chalks that you would endorse the pavement with during childhood days.

Would it be too far-fetched to say that even Johnny Depp's performance as "The Mad Hatter" contributed to the come-back of eye brows with his expressive tangerine scrubby examples? Probably.

So what is it going to be? The statement brow like Prada, Nina Ricci, Dries van Noten or rather the bleached-out retro look?
