When Will The Madness End? Barbed Wire Brows Take Over

Barbed Wire Brows

But beauty bloggers have gone one step further and introduced its meaner, harder, punkier cousin – the barbed wire brow.

It was originally started by MUA Athena Paginton, who shared her hellish new creation on Instagram, much to the delight of bored teens everywhere with too much time, and too much clear mascara on their hands.

They certainly make for an interesting shot:
