Welcome to my Beauty blog! I’m Alissa Vasper, a makeup enthusiast and senior at Hawaii Baptist Academy. I’m so excited to share with all of you my tips and tricks to the latest teen fashion trends. But first, let’s start off with some basics.
The most distinctive feature that defines your facial structure are your eyebrows. Although their primary purpose is to protect your eyes from sweat that drips down your face, they serve an arguably more imperative role than that. Brows help paint a full picture of your attitude, shaping your entire facial expression. Because of this, people pay a lot of attention to the shape, color, and style of their brows.
Eyebrows are said to be the most expressive facial feature. Musicians, TV hosts, and movie actors are taught explicitly to move their eyebrows in order to convey strong emotions (i.e. surprise, joy, anger, confusion). So naturally, shaping them have become a necessity. And like any other beauty necessity, such as clothes and hairstyle, its style has evolved throughout history.
Here’s a retrospective look into the most-popular shapes by the decade, spanning from the 1920s to today.
Eyebrow Shapes Since the 1920s
Men have not been left out of the brow-shaping trend either. Given that they usually forgo makeup, men have recently opted to “clean up” stray hairs under the brow for a smooth and handsome look. The trend stemmed from top-charts K-pop music artists, and rapidly took hold in the U.S.
Eyebrow shaping is now “on fleek” but fashion trends are constantly changing. In that light, follow my blog as I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the hottest fashion trends.
