A Quick Guide for Mastering the Feathery Brow Trend

August 20, 2017

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. Check out this vlogger’s tutorial for more tips.

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).

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
