Sometimes, you’ll find the strangest beauty trends when you’re cruising the internet. Today’s beauty trend topic is feather brows. Seriously. Beauty gurus around the world are sporting a new brow style inspired by feathers; bird feathers that is! Stella Sironen, a Finnish makeup artist, launched the trend when she published the first ever photograph of her feather brow look on Instagram. The rest is history, so to speak. I kid you not, the #featherbrow is The Beauty Look.
Here are a few pics to give you a better idea of what I’m talking about.

I couldn’t help laughing out loud the first time I saw a feathered brow. Then again, I did try the glitter hair part look. After seeing everyone at Coachella sporting the newest beauty trend, I told myself I had to try it.
I decided to keep an open mind about the whole thing. Afterall, what did I have to lose? I’m pretty sure that the feather brow will make its appearance at festival and I think that’s great. That being said, I just had to try the look for myself!
Some people on the internet use all purpose glue (???) to create the look. I, however opted for Brow Fix by MUD.
The idea is to separate your brows horizontally; combing your brow hairs in opposite directions, to re-create the look of a feather. The whole process took me less than 30 seconds.
Alright, alright, I can hear you laughing from here. Psst, I’m laughing too! It’s pretty obvious that my eyebrows aren’t bushy enough to accomplish the look I’m going after.
I admit I gave the whole thing a half-hearted try and that I didn’t even bother wearing any eye makeup. Adding eye makeup just seems to make the whole look a little too over-the-top for me.
So, will I be sporting Osheaga’s feather brow any time soon? The answer is, no. However, this isn’t the last you’ll hear from me about glitter hair parts!
