SHOOT., episode 3: Eyebrow obsession

31 Mar

You should know by now that I can go on for hours about eyebrows. It’s getting more and more compulsive… Rehab is calling🙂

But you have to admit, it’s an interesting topic! How these few tiny pieces of hair can change so much for a womans’ face, is just fascinating. An eyebrow can even make you famous!

No brows for Mona Lisa, which eliminated every expression in her face. Result: Decades of discussion if she looks said or smiley.

Even in ancient Egypt, the eyebrow was an important element in female expression

Throughout the last century, eyebrow-fashion changed almost every decade.

A brief look…

 

During the  twenties and thirties, eyebrows were very thin, round and downwards at the end.

Brows during the fourties were still quite thin, but already had a more natural shape.

The fifties-brow

The fifties-brow is sexy, full, perfectly shaped, with the highest point off 2/3 of the eyebrow.

During the sixties the eyebrows are softer, fuller, with less of an angle,

The eighties exposed full, bushy brows. Hardly any epilation going on here!

In my humble opinion, the nineties-brow is the worst of them all! Way too thin and artificial.

Nowadays we go for natural, slightly groomed eyebrows, with power!

    yessss ik ben ook geobsedeerd door wenkbrauwen. Maar stiekem vind ik die verschrikkelijk ordinaire 90s wenkbrauw ook nog cool. I mean, Drew Barrymore stond er ZO cute mee. Maar je moet er echt het gezicht voor hebben.

      Drew Barrymore is ALTIJD cute🙂. Maar toch heb ik ze liever met haar huidige wenkbrauwen…
