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 we’re glad to be seeing the back of the vinyl painted-on stencil jobbies littering selfies the world over, we’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.


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

Now it’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 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
