Chi maqbool ast?

Today while leaving FSI, I had a short conversation with one of the Dari teachers:

Her: You have an important weekend coming up!
Me: Yes, I do.
Her: (Something in Dari that I didn't understand).
Me: (Looking befuddled).
Her: (Looking concerned, repeats something in Dari that I didn't understand, except I got the phrase "you will be pretty.")
Me: (Still kind of befuddled).
Her: (Switching to English, now looking very grave) You will fix your eyebrows so that you look pretty?
Me: (Noticing her perfectly plucked brows for the first time) Um, I guess so.

(Post title translation: What is beautiful?)
