The arrows themselves became shorter and thinner, often very short - hardly noticeable notches at the corners of the eyes. It was permissible to draw them long and thick only to the ladies of the half-light.
The last century made its own adjustments. At first small and timid, then sharp and sharp, thick with a pointed end in the upper eyelid, like Audrey Hepburn, or very thin, like Twiggy. Arrows of black steel are gold and silver, then again turned into black, longer and thicker, but so smooth, curved, feminine.
