A woman is well turned out. Fresh for a new day. Eyebrows painted on in a perma-surprised arch that finishes some way above the plucked bald brow line. These brows close the gap between brow and hairline, shrinking the already low forehead. Why do women do this?

Eyebrows - a particular obsession of mine.

Man opposite has narrow bushy-in-the-middle ones. Man next to him has fledgling wild ones (I expect his father has big bushy out of control ones that grow long). Behind them a man with a strangely condescending face in repose with one eyebrow higher than the other and slightly handing eyelids. On the other side a woman with natural blond arches and a likely-historic use of powder blue eyeshadow.
