What a dif­fer­ence a brow makes – to Tay­lor Swift and other stars

The Star Early Edition - - ANGELA DAY VERVE - CARO­LINE MCGUIRE

EYE­BROWSwere raised re­cently in as­ton­ish­ment at the trans­for­ma­tion of Tay­lor Swift’s… er… eye­brows.

For the cover of Won­der­land mag­a­zine, the pop star was given a set of brows large enough to ri­val those of model Cara Delev­ingne.

The chunky cater­pil­lars com­pletely revamped Tay­lor’s face, turn­ing her from pretty princess into edgy model.

Tay­lor isn’t the only star dip­ping her toe in the bushy brow pool though.

The Duchess of Cam­bridge, ac­tress Megan Fox, model Kate Moss and singer Gwen Ste­fani have added con­sid­er­able size to theirs since the days of skinny eye­brows in the late nineties and early naugh­ties.

The celebrity trend has led to the growth of pro­fes­sional brow­groom­ing ser­vices at an as­ton­ish­ing rate over the past decade.

Women are now pay­ing a small for­tune to re­turn their eye­brows to their orig­i­nal state – us­ing eye­brow growth boost­ers, per­ma­nent makeup and even eye­brow ex­ten­sions.

Tay­lor Swift was almost un­recog­nis­able with larger eye­brows on the cover of Won­der­land. Skinny brows are now seen as age­ing.

Gwen Ste­fani had the ul­ti­mate skinny brows in the 1990s, but at the Em­mys last Au­gust they were triple the size.
