Eyebrows maketh a face, and these ones are totally – as my son’s generation would put it – on point.

I’ve always been a big fan of a good pair of eyebrows, mostly because my mother still repeats the same phrase every time I tell her I’m off to the beautician’s. “Don’t forget to remind her that eyebrows should be sisters, not twins; and that to get the perfect pair of eyebrows, she needs to use the golden ratio.”

You may think that she’s nuts (I did for most of my life) but Google and the most reliable of beauty therapists seem to confirm her conspiracy theory.

But enough about my mother. Here are five women in the Maltese limelight who’ve totally mastered their brows.

Hon. Kristy Debono MP has definitely added a bit of much needed glamour to our parliamentary sessions, and as the economist that she is, she also understands the value of a good set of eyebrows.



Amy Zahra may be young, but she’s trailblazing through the fashion industry at an impressive momentum. Her sculpted cheeks and exotic looks turn heads everywhere she goes, but her eyebrows… Cara Delevingne would be jealous.



Charlene Mercieca has taught us all many valuable lessons. She’s taught us not to give up, even when facing one of the worst diseases known to men, and to make the most of everyday we’re blessed with. She’s also proved that a good pair of eyebrows can frame a face. Thank you, Charlene – for that, but especially for everything else!



Sarah Micallef is the editor of Bliss magazine and also runs her own custom embroidery service called The Secret Rose. When she’s not juggling work, I suspect she’s to be found pruning her stunning brows because they’re as perfectly curated as an art exhibition at the V&A.



Kelly Schembri is one of the singers of the London-based duo, Monroe. She was also the voice behind that song we all secretly hum from time to time called Love Me Like Your Money. I have one question for her: How much do I have to pay you to get those brows?



That’s my top pick! But I’d like to discover more inspirational women whose eyebrows are the stuff of legend!
