The Beauty Crew Tries: Feather Eyebrows

18 April, 2017 - 10:08pm by - Head Pixie | 28 Comments

By BR Kellie

Natalie, the First Lady of Beauty Review is no stranger to giving things a go in the name of beauty. Nat has cut her own hair, coloured her own hair numerous times, even given a sculpted undercut a go. In recent times she's suggested it's my turn to give things a go... her idea was nose waxing. I put my pixie foot down very quickly on that one. I quite like my nostril hair. And I can't help but think about how uncomfortable nostril hair growing back in would be, and I wouldn't want to walk around with my finger up my nose giving it a good itch while it grew back. So yeah, nah. However, recently the concept of 'feather brows' became a bit of a trend, and giving that a go was something I could get on board with.

Feather brows was the creation of makeup artist Stella Sironen. Fun fact about this look - it was meant to be a joke, but apparently people didn't get that and now it has its own Instagram hashtag #featherbrows and everything. I can see why people like it though, it has this feral but delicate beauty, and I figured with my beetle brows I could pull it off.

So, here's a close up of what Stella achieved:

Now, it's probably good to note that you're meant to use glue on your eyebrows to achieve this look. I don't have glue and if I did I wouldn't be all that fond of putting glue on them in case I ripped out half my brows by accident. What I did have though was a clear brow gel that fixes those suckers in place, and a hair mascara which felt glue-esque. The plan? Make pink glitter feather brows! 

So I sat in front of my mirror and I fussed and feathered and farted around. The bottom half would feather out, then when I went on the upsweep the bottom would attempt to go that way as well. I used so much hair mascara that half my forehead was covered in it. I went about doing one brow for a good fifteen minutes. It was a mammoth task! The result?

A total feather fail. If anything I look like I've dragged my eyebrow backwards through a bush half a dozen times. Perhaps using glue would've produced a better result, but I doubt it. I think I'd need some severly thick brows to rock this one. So while I appreciate the artistry that goes into the feather brow, I won't be attempting it again. In fact waxing my nostril holds a little more interest, at least it would be fast and I'd see an actual result.

Pixie's overall thoughts on this one? 

Too hard basket. Although if you're game for gluing your eyebrows together to create feather brows we'd love to see the results! Post 'em to the photowall and you may find some points sprinkled into your account.

mmm nope! even if I liked how it looks (which nah not a fan) I wouldn't have nearly enough brow to do anything like that with them... will leave this to others and hey if it's your thing and it works then well done :)

Waahahah! I think not!

Hmm not for me lol

Lol. I saw an article about this and thought "surely not?" Yeah nah.

Erm...naaaa...seems unlikely anyone could pull it off...

Bhahaha! Sorry but I am not a fan at all. No....just no :-)

Was wondering what the heck this was. I'm pretty sure I would feel the need to tell the person, excuse me miss but I think you have may have brushed your eyebrows the wrong way.

Really should have tried this during the day kinda hard to tell in the photo rather than when you need an excuse for a break in the major clean out your having

Good on you for giving it a go. Guess I know what I might be trying in the bathroom mirror tomorrow!

I think this look is actually super pretty! Way too much effort for a daily look, but so unusual and unique once completed. Love it with the red eyeshadow as well.

This is so funny! Love that it was a joke but people decided to run with it. My brows are naturally thin/patchy but the hairs have gotten a bit long of late... perhaps there will be some new photos up tonight!

this is what I saw yesterday! I thought it was pretty clever haha the only ugly beauty trend I like. if only I had glue... ;-)

Ugly is right Shaz, in fact it really creeps me out!

Oh. I don't like this trend at all....lol. Big no from me.

Well done on giving it a go! personally, this is not a look I want to go for. maybe if I didnt have eyebrows I would get a decal to create this look - hahaha

Good on you for giving it ago! It looks cool but such an odd thing to do haha. If I had glue I'd give it ago

Great write up Kellie! I think that this trend would be perfect if someone was doing photo that was perhaps had a bohemian theme to it. That would be super cool. Ive given this a try this arvo, since reading this and I have posted my quick attempt on the photo wall :)

Thank you! And I do believe the sprinkle fairy has seen your pic!
