We’ve seen just about everything when it comes to eyebrow styling. It’s the beauty sensation we both hate to love and love to hate. The internet has made quite a fuss over ponytail brows, crown brows, halo brows and even brush-on extensions. So, what could possibly be next? Bow brows. As the name implies, makeup is used to turn eyebrows into looped bows above the eyes.
The beauty enthusiast behind the cutesy arches is Lisette Scheffler, a self-taught makeup artist who was just looking to try her hand — er, wand — at the viral phenomenon. “I just saw how all of the brow trends became very popular in the past and thought it would be funny to create my own, and so I came up with the bow brows,” Scheffler told POPSUGAR in an email.
She shared her creation on Instagram, where she also posts other makeup inspiration for her near 1.6 thousand followers, captioning the post: “Bow brows ? Since Brow trends became very popular the last weeks I thought about inventing my own brow trend. I hope you guys like it! Product details come tomorrow!”
To outline the bow shape, Scheffler used Maybelline Eyestudio® Brow Satin Define + Fill Duo, which she drew on in small strokes to emulate real brows, reports POPSUGAR. She then added volume and definition with the help of Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel.
“To be honest, I don’t think anyone would leave the house like this,” she said. “But one girl re-created my bow-brow look and told me that it was really funny. It’s all about fun and creativity.” While some followers were quick to insert eyeroll emoji, others took to the comments to encourage her creativity.
So, until the next crazy eyebrow trend takes over your social media feed, scroll through for some of the most awesome bow brow re-creations, all done in the name of satirical beauty.
