Over the past century, the shape of women's eyebrows has undergone many changes - from drawn threads to natural wide contours, which would have said about untidiness 10-15 years ago.
Eyebrows are rightfully considered the basis of any beauty look. The expression of your face, eyes, and even how your makeup will be depends on their shape. Fashion for the shape of eyebrows has always been set by Hollywood divas and pop stars, so we decided to use their example to show how the female image has changed over a century.
1920s - painted eyebrows
At the beginning of the 20th century, such thin eyebrows were in fashion that it was simply impossible to pluck hairs like that. Therefore, the girls, following the example of Marlene Dietrich, simply shaved off their eyebrows and drew new ones - perfectly straight strings.
1930s - theatricality
Angelina Jolie and other stars who had a passionate affair
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had a passionate romance on the set of the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith". Pitt found himself in a delicate situation - his wife Jennifer Aniston was waiting for him at home. Cheating on set led to the collapse of their five-year marriage.
In the 30s, the eyebrows were still thin, as they were a decade ago, but the image has now become more "dramatic" - the curves are curved theatrically, as if the girl is constantly surprised at something. The standard of beauty was Greta Garbo - it was this actress who set the fashion for such a form.
1940s - sharp tip
In the 40s, women's eyebrows became a little thicker, but the ladies continued to pluck them carefully. The trend was a sharpened tip, which was completed with a pencil. It could go all the way to the temple, like Grace Kelly's.
1950s - New Look style
In the 50s, the great Christian Dior and the New Look style ruled the ball. For eyebrows, this was also a "golden age": sexually curved, like Marilyn Monroe, or bright, like Liz Taylor. At the same time, it was fashionable to slightly lift the hairs up - this added playfulness to the image.
1960s - crescent bend
The classic style of the 60s is Sophia Loren's eyebrows. The outer tips protruded upward, making the look a little predatory and cocky. Sophie herself paid the utmost attention to her eyebrows, carefully drawing them in pencil.
1970s - the cult of naturalness
In the era of hippies, many girls have completely stopped pinching their eyebrows, pay tribute to naturalness. Form is not the main thing, the main thing is a complete feeling of naturalness. However, Hollywood stars, of course, did not let the situation take its course - the effect of lush eyebrows was created using a pencil and gel.
1980s - very wide
In the 80s, super-wide eyebrows came into vogue, the wider the better! The pioneer was Madonna, who showed her eyebrows that were not plucked at all and slightly tinted. Well, Brooke Shields reached full perfection, whose expressive look we do not forget to this day. By the way, it was all about the dark eyebrows!
1990s - checkmark eyebrows
The 1990s are a difficult period both for fashion in general and for eyebrows. All the most unfortunate beauty images of the stars appeared just then - the eyebrows were plucked out very thinly and with a sharp corner in the form of a tick instead of a smooth bend. For many girls, this form did not fit, making the face aggressive and visually reducing the eyes, but no one refused the trend.
From the 2000s to the present day - natural again
For modern girls, the models Cara Delevingne and Natalia Vodianova have become the benchmarks in terms of eyebrows. The cult of naturalness returned, reminding us of the fashion of the 70s and 80s - the eyebrows became wide again, dark, with raised hairs. It is noteworthy that there is no unity of form - now it is selected for each person individually, and this is the only correct decision.
