Eyebrows SVG in culture
In ancient China, men grew long hair and braided it in a braid. Men drew or glued false moustaches, shaved their foreheads and hair on the temples and the back of their heads, and tied hair on the top of their heads in a bundle. Eyebrows were also the hallmark of men, most of whom were warriors, and painted eyebrows. Warriors let their eyebrows down with ink, giving them a more ferocious shape to frighten their enemies. One of the popular uprisings in Asia was organized by the Red Eyebrow squad.
In Central Asia, one of the most important elements of beauty was considered to be the thick eyebrows, and even the ones on the nose bridge. From an early age, the girls were drawn eyebrows with octopus juice, joining them in one line above the nose bridge. Since oyster stimulates the growth of hair, after a while, where the eyebrows were drawn, hairs did grow. Dyeing oyster (arugula, rugola, garden rocket) is a herbaceous vegetable from the mustard family, freshly squeezed oyster juice at first has a bright green color, but it quickly becomes darker and black with a slight emerald hue. So far, oyster juice is a very popular eyebrow, eyelash and hair dyeing product in Central Asia. As for the shape of the eyebrows, the ideas have changed over the centuries. The Assyrians, for example, had the privilege of a nobleman with an eyebrow on his nose bridge. If they did not grow up in this area, they were painted and especially made sure that people from the common people did not allow themselves to grow up like this.
Women in Ancient Egypt took their Eyebrows SVG to the temples in a graceful wave. Three and a half thousand years ago in Egypt, the ideal of female beauty was Nefertititi: thin eyebrows, expressive eyes, swan neck, brave mouth line. No Egyptian woman has ever done without waxing. Ideally, beauty and tradition have removed hair from the whole body, including the head. But the beautifully elongated shape of the skull with a rounded back of the head allowed them to do so without damaging the whole harmonious image. A wig or a complicated construction of superimposed hair was put on a head that was subjected to a rather brutal depilation operation or simply shaved. The Egyptian beauties dripped belladonna juice to give the chambers luster, eyelids were painted with carbon dioxide of copper and thick long eyebrows were drawn.
Japanese women shaved them off their roots and drew new ones much higher. The Greeks gave them a bright shine with a mixture of egg albumen and gumdrops and joined together on the nose bridge with a black oily line – since then this form has been called the “Greek eyebrow”. Women in India inked their eyebrows and painted their nails with red paint, dyed their eyelashes, gilded their lips and covered their teeth with brown paint.
During the Inquisition, when physical perfection was seen as a sin, the ideal of beauty was considered to be a lady with miniature hands drawn into a corset. The disaster of that time was rickets. At the end of XIV – beginning of XV women, imitating the rachitics ladies, began to pluck eyebrows and hair over the forehead. To emphasise the whiteness of the skin, they let one playful curl out of the headpiece or tied the forehead with a narrow black ribbon.
Cosmetics wasn’t encouraged, it was forgotten for a while. It’s only in Italy that the Oriental makeup has survived. Italian girls used antimony on their eyebrows and lead-based whitewash on their faces. They were aware of its harmful effects, so they put beef compresses soaked in milk on their faces overnight to soften its effects.
