You’re probably thinking, ‘What the heck? Another eyebrow trend?’ Yep, that’s exactly what we thought too!
Basically, this trend is as easy as it sounds; It’s an eyebrow mimicking the look of a feather.
The irony in all of this is that it was started as a joke. Stella Sironen, a Finnish Instagram user under the IG name @stella.s.makeup, started this idea of #featherbrows. She said she ‘joked about starting a trend in the caption of my first picture, not about the actual makeup.’ And to all of those that strongly dislike this new type of brow art, Stella went on to say: ‘I know that brows are a sacred part of the face but consider this – there are types of lip art and eye art and tons of different forms of creative makeup, why is experimenting with brows so strange?’
But, the Internet takes nothing lightly and will make a trend out of something as simple as ‘pencil shreds.’
It was going to happen!
This is Stella’s Instagram photo that started it all!
