The impetus for celebrity makeup pro Charlotte Tilbury's new eyebrow perfecter, Legendary Brows? "People literally don't recognize your face without them," she says. According to a recent study conducted at MIT, famous faces are rendered unrecognizable in the absence of eyebrows, whereas faces without eyes are still identifiable. Which is exactly why designers looking to neutralize famous faces on the runway often bleach out models' brows. Here, we erased the eyebrows on 14 famous faces to test the theory.
