If the makeup world is obsessed with one thing, it is eyebrows. From the sexy power brows to the bizarre rainbow brows, we’ve seen them all (or so we think.) You’ve got to admit, we’ve come a long way when it comes to eyebrow shapes and sizes. From the olden times when actresses flaunted thin brows, to now, when the world is going gaga over undone, caterpillar brows, eyebrow trends have been through a long journey. Want to know all about their history? Here’s a complete lowdown...

Before we give you a roundup of the browlution (brow+evolution, duh!), make sure you get your hands on the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil that’ll help you achieve any of the brow looks below should you want to give any of these eyebrow trends a shot! This one’s the perfect kinda brow pencil if you wish to go all out when it comes to drawing them. As a general rule, start from the arch and use gentle strokes to fill them in. Use a spoolie once you’re done to brush out the eyebrows in order to remove any excess product so that your eyebrows look natural.

Marilyn Monroe

Back when Marilyn Monroe was the beauty icon, everyone played copycat to her brows—they were wide-set, slightly lighter than the colour of her tresses and they were arched AF. Little wonder then that because of her stunning features and beauty rituals, the woman had such a huge fan following!

Audrey Hepburn

It may have been a while since we watched our fave Breakfast At Tiffany’s but Audrey still remains one of our most inspirational fashion divas. Her eyebrows were a talking point back in the 1960s. They were straight, natural brows that were filled in heavily. Can’t deny the fact that they still give us major inspo!

If you think caterpillar brows have become a rage only now, you’d be surprised to learn that it was actually Brooke Shields who set the trend rolling. With her undone, ungroomed, thick brows, she gave every woman of the 80s major brow-envy.

Kate Moss

Overgrown eyebrows may have become a thing but then supermodel Kate Moss gave us pencil-thin barely-there brows in the 90s. Naturally then, she was every designer’s dream muse during her career as a runway scorcher.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie’s pout might be one of her most talked about features but her brows are just as significant. Back in the day, her eyebrows were short but also had a heavy arch—something that many women aped and envied. Till date, her brows have retained their same iconic shape as the late 90s.

Cara Delevingne

Cara may have bid adieu to the runway but a few months ago, her eyebrows were a major talking point. After all, she was the one who gave us deep, dark power brows. They were thick, they stood out and they were screaming for attention. Little wonder then that the trend still seems to be very much alive even now.
