They started off as a joke and that’s where they should’ve stayed
That’s it. We’re done. We’re done trying to keep up with the latest beauty trends and brow thicknesses and lip gloss colors because here’s what all the innovating has gotten us: feather brows.
Can we get a WTF? Because us moms have enough to worry about without putting glue on our eyebrows.
Honest to god, this is a thing women are trying and we’re left scratching our heads. And if we want to keep up with the hottest cosmetic fads, parting our brows into neatly separated rows bearing a disturbing resemblance to a freaking centipede.
Because that’s what we want to call to mind with the hunks of hair above our eyes.
so i'm starting this new brow trend please recreate it and wear it everyday and dont forget to tag me like and subscribe and hit that bell button🔔😩👌🏻 ALL credits go to my muse @leevittu he came up with this whilst brushing my eyebrows last sunday brow: glue stick skin: @maccosmetics Face&Body foundation C1, @maccosmetics pro longwear concealer NW20, a lot of Fix+ for the wet effect highlight: @katvondbeauty Alchemist Palette (Emerald, Opal, Amethyst) eyeshadows: @lipsicosmetics lipstick on the lid and @maccosmetics matte lipsticks in Frosting and Matte Royal mixed for the inner&outer corners mascara: @maccosmetics in extreme dimension lash mascara in Hold For 10
Initial reactions of myself and other cosmetic fiend friends include: Nope. NOPE. Nope, nope, nopity nope, hell no. No. Non. Nyet. Rejected. One friend did have an idea to make your look even more avian saying, “If you want to get ahead of the trend, just glue gun an entire pigeon to the side of your face. Let’s get that trending.”
I have funny friends.
Anyway, according to Glamour, we have Finnish makeup artist Stella Sironen to thank for this eyebrow-raising (see what I did there?) trend. Her Instagram caption says to use a gluestick to make your brows stay centipede-y, because what this needs is one more touch of “wtf”.
Sironen says in a follow-up post that the trend was started as a joke (we aren’t laughing), but it wasn’t long before other Instagrammers started to replicate it.
note to self: when u make a joke about starting a funny brow trend people will take it seriously and…. well. start the trend anyways THANK YOU for all the love and hate on my last pic! i think we should call this #featherbrows so if you actually want to recreate this, pls use the hashtag and tag me in the picture💘 skin: @maccosmetics strobe cream, face&body foundation c1, pro longwear concealer in NC15, fix+ highlight: @maccosmetics Double Gleam brows: glue stick + @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown eyeshadows: @maccosmetics Texture & Coppering lashes: @ardell_lashes Wispies lips: @lipsicosmetics Leros + clear lip gloss
Who is ready for a new brow trend? • • • This took a bit of @anastasiabeverlyhills clear brow gel with a little help of a technique called "soap brows". These #featherbrows were completely inspired by @stella.s.makeup 😩😘❤️ If you don't understand ART, that's okay this trend isn't for you baby. And if you can't understand that, you probably don't understand this is a joke too😜
And for those adventurous types who don’t think feather brows are fucking weird enough, just add gold glitter. Because as long as we’re basically living through a real-life Hunger Games, we might as well pretend we’re Effie. She is pretty fabulous.
I'm no @stella.s.makeup but I had to give this #featherbrows look a go. Honestly I know she was having a joke but for real this is great. Just a quick few brushes with a clear brow gel to separate and hold and added some gold ✨ my brows are particularly thick, so much so that the hairs just don't like to bend any other way so it didn't work out too well for me. Used @jeffreestarcosmetics Androgyny palette for the eye.
So what started off as a joke is now legitimately gaining speed as a thing we can do to our faces. If this is your thing, go for it. We’ll just be over here with our very best “wtf” faces on and our eyebrow hairs not covered in glue.
