A Quick Guide for Mastering the Feathery Brow Trend
We’ve seen the look on makeup artists and vloggers, but how do you actually master the feather trend? Here’s a quick guide that will leave people mistaking your eyebrows for feathers in no time.
Makeup artist Stella Sironen created the feather trend completely on accident. She posted an Instagram with feather styled brows, encouraging her followers to emulate the style. This post was met with reactions as polarized as the parting hairs in Sironen’s feather brows. People either were feather brow enthusiasts, or haters.
After her initial post received so much unintended attention, the makeup artist clarified in another post that she had actually been joking about the trend. She wrote, “note to self: when u make a joke about starting a funny brow trend people will take it seriously and…. well. start the trend.”
Many of her fans have continued to emulate the trend and you can, too. This look is perfect for music festivals, costumes, giggles with friends, or for daring souls looking to make a fashion statement.
All you need is a glue stick and disposable mascara brush.
The makeup artist writes that she used a glue stick on her brows to get them to stay in feather formation, but if you’re using glue on your face, make sure it is washable to ensure easy removal. Other makeup artists experimented with heavy-duty brow gel for a more subtle look. I also would recommend clear mascara as an option.
First, apply a generous amount of your glue or gel of choice to a disposable mascara brush. The technique is to visually divide your eyebrows in half with a horizontal line, and brush the upper half of the brow straight up toward your hairline and the other half down to point at your eyes.

Sironen also credits Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade for her feathery look. Especially if you have thin or light eyebrows, fill them in a little once the glue or gel has dried. You can get a little more creative here, you can fill them in lightly to look natural or you can draw the intricate details of a feather for an even more daring look (like Sironen did here).
