You know the saying, "the grass is always greener on the other side?" Where everything that someone else has seems better than anything you've got? Well, the same goes for eyebrows.

Lily Collins' brows are so famous that she has fan accounts dedicated to them, but she has admitted she wasn't always a fan herself.
“When I was younger and moved from England to LA, kids made fun of my eyebrows," she has told TWIST. "Everyone had these thin eyebrows, and it just was a very different look. I tried to pluck them myself and it didn’t really work so well! Luckily, they grew back."
"I think we all want to fit in at a young age, and we alter things about ourselves that we think are different to fit in better, and one of those things is my eyebrows," she told InStyle. "They were so bold and very . . . big on my face, and as a kid, I wanted to change that."
"[My mom told] me, 'You need to accept the quirky things that make you different and make you beautiful. It's the things that make you stand out that make you unique and allow people to appreciate that.'"
