American actress Julianne Moore told Vogue magazine that because she wore extremely thin eyebrows, a prevailing trend in the 1990s, she “destroyed” them and “they won’t grow back.”
Recounting her daily skincare routine to Vogue magazine, the 62-year-old Oscar-winning actress joked about the painstaking “feat” of having to paint on her brows every day.
“I pretty much destroyed my eyebrows as a teenager and then grew them out and then destroyed them again and now they won’t grow back,” she told the fashion and lifestyle magazine.
Despite accepting that her brows may never return to their pre-tweezed state, the mother of two has become a pro at outlining her own.
“A lot of people think redheads have red eyebrows, but very rarely do,” the Still Alice star said. I take the pencil and start right in the middle, underneath and fill it in to make it look straighter,” she said.
In 2021, the Emmy winner told the Sunday Times that she “destroyed” her brows by plucking and bleaching them until they were “completely gone” in an attempt to fit in. Over the years, she has been vigilant in trying to prevent her 20-year-old daughter, Liv, from repeating her own mistakes.
She told the outlet that she always tells her daughter not to “touch” her eyebrows and not to “let anyone else touch them.” Earlier in her latest video, Moore admitted that her “skincare routine has gotten more and more complicated” as she’s “aged.”
“I’ve always been careful when washing my skin and using sunscreen,” she said.
As a child, the wife of director Bart Freundlich, recalled how her “fair-skinned” mother worried that “we would get sunburned all the time.”
“He wouldn’t even let us out on the beach until after 3:00, we could only stay for a while, and then as soon as there were effective sunscreens, we used them all the time,” Moore recalled.
