When Stella Sironen shared a photo of her with her eyebrows split down the middle like bird feathers on Instagram, jokingly stating that she was starting a new beauty trend, little did she know that the Internet would take her seriously.
Stella Sironen, a young makeup artist from Finland, whose makeup skills have earned her over 48,000 followers on Instagram, posted the viral photos of her sporting feathered brows
She credited her friend @leevitu for coming up with the trick while brushing her eyebrows. She stated that he used a glue stick to split the eyebrows down the middle horizontally and brush the eyebrows up and down to achieve that aviary look. As Stella later admitted, she jokingly captioned the first photo with the text “so i’m starting this new brow trend please recreate it and wear it everyday and don't forget to tag me like and subscribe and hit that bell button.” But people apparently didn’t get the joke.
Immediately the photo got posted on Instagram, people started sharing it like crazy and soon enough fans were making their own versions of feathered brows.
Some simply copied Sironen’s look, while others put their own original touches on feathered brows in the form of glitter. And so, the feathered brows trend was born, by mistake.
But while many love this crazy beauty trend that started off as a joke, others hate it with passion, even going as far as voting them down and posting negative comments wherever they see photos of anyone sporting them.
