Wave Goodbye To The Tweezers As Feather Brows Are Now A Thing
21 April 2017, 17:01
The beauty world never ceases to amaze us. We're not sure we can back this one though!
It was one thing getting our head around the fact that finely plucked brows aren't a thing any more and bushy brows are totally in. But feather brows? We're not so sure.
Beauty bloggers on Instagram have taken the eyebrow game to new levels, posting photos of themselves with feather-like styled facial hair.
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
If you're laughing at the new trend (like we are a little bit) then you'll understand that it started off as a bit of a joke after Stella Sironen, a Finnish makeup artist, jokingly shared the image to Instagram declaring it the new must have.
But instead of getting laughs, the trend spread like wildfire.
Now, Instagrammers are sharing their own version and whilst some people hate it, others love it!
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.
ok so obviously this has gotten out of hand and it's hilarious and amazing but i wanted to clarify some stuff: 1. i joked about starting a trend in the caption of my first pic not about the actual makeup 2. drag queens have used glue on their brows since forever so please don't credit me for that lol 3. i know that brows are a sacred part of the face but consider this: there is lip art and eye art and tons of different forms of creative makeup, why is experimenting with brows so strange? shoutout to @popsugarbeauty, @huffpostwomen and @dailymail for making the best articles about this, go read them! and i can't thank you guys enough for your support, this feels unreal peacock feather brow: @cameleonfinland body paints, @katvondbeauty tattoo liner in Trooper, @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown, glue stick skin: @maccosmetics next to nothing Light Plus, pro longwear concealer in NC15 lower lid: @makeupstore Romantic Garden & Emerald eye pencils liner: @toofaced chocolate bar palette (Triple Fudge) lashes: @grimassuomi 325
The look is created splitting the hairs down the centre, splaying the hairs to mimic a feathear, and seal the look using Vaseline.
After the trend picked up a bit of attention, Stella was quick to point out that she didn't do it seriously.
She wrote: "Ok so obviously this has gotten out of hand and it's hilarious and amazing but i wanted to clarify some stuff:

Yes or no? Will you be trying out the avian themed eyebrows?
