The Beauty of the Brow

Sorting through the multitude of eyebrow options

Eyebrow trends have been the stuff of a continuous cycle for decades. The brow has undergone a tumultuous journey – from the thin flatline of Billie Holiday in the 1930s, to Audrey Hepburn’s natural shape in the 60s, back to the atrocious paper-thin eyebrows of Paris Hilton in the early 2000s.

Thankfully, by 2018, we have come full-circle back to the aesthetic of thick, striking eyebrows.

The brows frame our faces, and they reveal more emotion than any other feature. Women now embrace their dark, thick brows – or fill in where they are less impressive. The goal is to make your brows bold and striking. As Golden Globe award-winning actress Saoirse Ronan once said, “If you don’t have eyebrows, you don’t really have a face.”

Since the revival of the Elizabeth Taylor-esque eyebrow look, there has come thousands of new products to the cosmetic market, videos and how-tos on how to craft the perfect brow for your facial shape.

ELYSIAN searched high and low for the best eyebrow products on the market. Whether you have good brows to work with or one of the three “problem” types – thin, shapeless or patchy – these products should help you achieve the perfect balance beautiful eyes.
