A Beauty Trend Too Far? Introducing Feather Brows

Feather Brows

Thanks to a fleet of bushy supermodels and a trend for less manicured beauty looks, eyebrows have been having a repeat moment in the last few years.

While weโ€™re glad to be seeing the back of the vinyl painted-on stencil jobbies littering selfies the world over, weโ€™re somewhat perplexed as to the style that might replace it: the feather eyebrows.

And apparently, it started out as a bit of a joke. Make-up artist Stella Sironen announced that she would be starting a new brow shape that looked like an actual bird feather around 1 April. Days later, she admitted it was all a joke, but not before it started being picked up by other bloggers. So she just went with it.


โ€œNote to self: when u make a joke about starting a funny brow trend people will take it seriously and . . . Well, start the trend,โ€ she captioned one Instagram post.

Now itโ€™s everywhere. And its all a little Black Swan. Here are some of the best ones:

ok so obviously this has gotten out of hand and itโ€™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 donโ€™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 canโ€™t thank you guys enough for your support, this feels unrealโค๏ธ 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
