If you’re even the slightest bit obsessed with makeup and styling, you’d know how much the eyebrows can contribute to crafting your beauty look. With all the unmissable craze surrounding eyebrow fashion today, one can only wonder, where did it all really start?
Is it really any surprise if we tell you eyebrow beauty made it to the mainstream as early as the 1920s? Yep, 2022’s eyebrow-first approach to makeup wasn’t just born out of another social media fad. Movie stars back in the day made eyebrow styling a big part of their on-screen characters and naturally got the ball rolling for all kinds of brow trends in the decades to follow.
From the iconic straight across Audrey brow to the plucked-to-extinction 90s skinny brow back to bushy and big, it sure has been an exciting journey of eyebrow shapes over the years. Some that didn’t quite make the headlines while some others we literally still bow down to today.. or should we say brow down? (Yes, we’re thinking of you Cara Delevingne.)
