This week, "Mirror, Mirror" actress Lily Collins made "news" when she revealed that she'd once tried to pluck her signature bushy eyebrows into oblivion. "It used to bother me -- having bigger, fuller brows," the 22-year-old British actress reveals in this month's "Seventeen" magazine cover story. "I even plucked them once so I'd fit in, but I hated them and couldn't wait for them to grow back."

Smart move. Big brows are back in a way that we haven't seen since Brooke Shields didn't let anything come between her and her Calvins. But, what are those of us with anemic, barely-there brows supposed to do?

Sure, you can pencil in your thin brows -- but that can get tricky (and leave you looking like an Angry Bird). A better bet might be to try one of the (many) brow-enhancing serums hitting the market. One, RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum, $58.72, which eschews hair growth-encouraging drugs in favor of a combo of fruit extracts, vitamins, and proteins, promises "up to a 108 percent improvement of the appearance of the eyebrows in less than two months." One thing is for sure: You definitely want to step away from the tweezers -- at least until skinny brows are back en vogue.

    This girl is freaking gorgeous and the movie was adorable. But I couldnt help staring at her eyebrows. They're distracting!

    I love my thick dark brows. I get complimented on them a lot and I do them myself.

    Thank you for this! I never plucked or waxed my bushy brows, and I am so happy I didn't! =)
