Was it Cara that made big brows beautiful or did she march onto the scene at exactly the right time?
Recently brows have had more attention. Loads. Attention to be more natural, away from the over-plucked brow that had been so popular with women up until last decade. The nineties might be back but they certainly left the over-plucked brow behind.
It’s interesting how things run in different cycles. While certain fashions from the late 1990s have come back, such as cropped tops and high waisted trousers, eyebrows seem to be running on a different fashion cycle. They were at their absolute thinnest during the 1920s and 1930s (think Marlene Dietrich with her completely plucked eyebrows who merely replaced them with a thin drawn lines and were at their thickest during the 1980s. And then came Cara Delevingne…
It’s good to see that the natural look has come back and is firmly rooting itself within the teens of the 21st century. Most pluckers are laying off the tweezers these days (Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore, for example) and are being more bold with their brows. There’s a bit of Cara in all of us!
