The EyebrowBook - 2000
The eyebrow. No other facial feature is as easily changed -- and none can make such a dramatic difference in your total look.
In this highly original beauty book, renowned makeup artist and eyebrow specialist Robyn Cosio reveals everything you ever wanted to know about the often neglected eyebrow and helps you create the perfect brows for your face.
Cosio follows the evolution of eyebrow fashion through history, from ancient Egyptian women's recipes for homemade brow powder to eighteenth-century English beauties who glued tiny pieces of mouse hide to their foreheads, then focuses on the twentieth century and shows how changes in brow shape have given a different look to each decade.
The Eyebrow is filled with dozens of beautiful photographs of stars from throughout the twentieth century, ranging from the silent-film vamp's angry slash of a brow to the thin, stylized, glamorous brow of the 1930s to the haute-couture Diva Arch of the 1950s -- the pinnacle of elegance and sophistication -- to the tadpole brow of the 1970s and Brooke Shields's natural-looking brow of the 1980s.
Stars have completely changed their looks over the years by changing their eyebrows. Joan Crawford's incredibly thin blond brows of the 1920s evolved into her signature thick black brows of the 1950s. And powerful brows have shaped the looks of countless men, from Groucho Marx and Boris Karloff to Clark Gable and Clint Eastwood.
Finally, Cosio helps you create your own perfect brows, whether you have thick, bushy brows or only a few sparse hairs to work with. She shows the folly of eyebrow trends, instead helping you to create a pair of classically elegant brows that make the perfect frame for your face, giving you an instant facelift.
With this eye-opening book, you'll never look at eyebrows the same way again.
