So two weeks ago I had a birthday, and my bestie decided she was giving me a Botox gift certificate as a present, despite my objections. She is vain, and told me if I dealt with the line between my eyebrows now, it would be much less noticeable as the years marched on. And she assured me a little bit of Botox would simply make me look more refreshed and less cross when I was tired.
Whatevs, I was game, because although I am generally very happy with the state of my face, the line between my brows was, in fact, starting to bug me. And so off I went to have poison injected into my forehead.
At first I didn’t notice much. And then, at about the two-week mark, I couldn’t figure out why my brows suddenly looked so arched, as in Laura Prepon in Orange Is The New Black arched.
I have always had defined brows, but suddenly they were crazily arched.
Why, you may ask?
Because when they Botox your lower forehead in order to target the line between your brows, it basically causes much of your forehead muscles to freeze up entirely. But only the center part of your forehead. Which means the outer edges of your brows still move when you raise your eyebrows. The middle, frozen part, stays put, making your arch look totally exaggerated. Ultra-arched brows, apparently, are a sign that someone’s getting Botox. This explains Donkey’s Joker brows, which she did not possess a few years ago. Mystery solved.
p.s. I am never getting Botoxed again. I’d rather have a line between my forehead than look like Rob Lowe in Behind The Candelabra.
