Instagram is without a doubt the new trendsetter. Whether it is fashion, makeup, hairdos or skincare, a particular post goes viral and before we know it, becomes a fad! The latest one is the Squiggle Eyebrows! Yes, you heard it right. Instagram is presently flooded with pictures of this new brow trend and beauty bloggers and makeup enthusiasts are busy recreating their own looks.
Just when everyone thought they were finally all set with their complete brow grooming kits with the brow pencils, powders, pomades and setting gels, this sure comes as a big shock. To find out more about this trend, please keep on reading!
What Are Squiggle Brows? The word ‘Squiggle‘ refers to ‘a short line that curls and loops in an irregular way’. Rather than following the natural curve, the brows are basically created in a wave-like shape.
How To Create Such Brows? According to PopSugar, Promise Tamang, the popular YouTuber and makeup artist, used PVA glue to flatten the brow hair in one direction. She then went ahead with a concealer and setting powder to cover any stray hair. To create the squiggle shape, she used a black gel liner mixed with pomade. Just a word of caution here, do not wax or tweeze your brows in a squiggle shape. It will take years to grow them out!
My Thoughts On Squiggle Brows: For me, I am one of those who likes well defined and fuller brows. In fact, I am still a fan of Deepika Padukone’s strong brow game. So when I came across this, I actually felt weird and somewhat creepy. In fact, the first time I saw these, I pictured some sort of a baby snake crawling or as something that makes a person look worried. I am not really amused by these and can never see myself trying them out.
Anyways, it looks super fun to create such brows and it is indeed very creative. And, you can of course rub them off at the end of the day.
What Is The Internet’s Reaction? As far as I have read, there is a mixed reaction regarding this brow trend! While some are really excited to try something new and get creative, there are others who feel that this is a really cool idea for a theme party or Halloween! And then there are those who are totally freaked out by this trend and have declared it a complete No-No!
So, what do you think about this latest eyebrow trend? Yay or Nay? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!
