IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Cara Delevingne’s best eyebrow moments
In the Spotlight features the best brows on the internet—and gives advice on how to steal their look, too. In this first article, we start with ‘the brows that started them all’. Scroll down to see Cara Delevingne’s best eyebrow moments.
Eyebrows are the biggest trend of the decade, and the beauty industry has Cara Delevingne to thank.
The 50’s had Audrey Hepburn, while the 80’s had Brooke Shields. And on the list of the world’s iconic thick eyebrows, Cara Delevingne is the face of the 2010’s.
At 26 years old, Cara has been named “Model of the Year” and has appeared in Burberry, Chanel, and Dolce & Gabanna shows, as well. In addition to that, she’s starred in the comic book film Suicide Squad (2016) and the John Green novel adaptation Paper Towns (2015).
The English model/actress took the world by storm when she first stepped on a runway in 2011. People were still recovering from the 90s’ ultra-thin eyebrow obsession. So it’s no wonder they immediately took notice of Cara’s “power brows”.
And who could blame them?

Of course, it’s not just Cara’s crazy good looks that endeared her to her 41.3 million Instagram followers.
In fact, the model/actress often uses her platform to raise awareness over pressing issues. She’s posted about the refugee crisis, police brutality, as well as women empowerment. She has also openly spoken about battling depression and having ADHD and dyspraxia.
All of Cara Delevingne’s best eyebrow moments
Of course, it’s almost impossible to find a photo of Cara having a bad eyebrow day—if she even has any, anyway.
Her eyebrows are constantly gorgeous in all of her photos. So, this collection of Instagram posts (from Cara herself!) showcases their very best moments.
How to get Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows
Back in 2015, Cara revealed her number one secret for having great arches: “I just kind of leave [them] until someone does it for me.”
“I don’t do anything to them. They just are the way they are,” she told People magazine. “I don’t even really groom them. [And] I don’t tweeze.”
Of course, Cara acknowledges that she was born with great eyebrow shape in the first place. “They just grow. I’m lucky with the shape—I inherited it from my grandmother. I pluck a few, but I don’t shape them.”
So for those of us who don’t have Cara’s grandmother’s eyebrow shape, here’s what we need to do:
1. Leave the grooming to the professionals
Eyebrow grooming professionals go through intensive training. They study the best eyebrow shape for your face. They also know how to get them done perfectly.
Like Cara, it’s best to let the experts do the eyebrow shaping. There’s no harm with plucking a few strands in between sessions, of course. However, for the most part, try not to DIY your brow shape.
2. Give Cara’s favorite brow pen a try
Cara recommends the Burberry eyebrow pen. “It’s great,” she also told People in an interview. “It’s f—ing wonderful. I have it on right now, keeping these bad boys down.”
Here’s how to get the Cara power brow with an eyebrow pen:
- First, remove stray hairs under the brow by waxing or tweezing.
- Next, outline under and above the eyebrow with a pen.
- Afterward, fill in the outline with brow powder and blend accordingly.
- Finally, finish with a styling gel to keep your brows in place.
