The Craziest Brow Trends Of 2017

Natasha Patel

With the end of every year comes the countdown to the coolest, raddest, baddest and most innovative trends. From glitter lips to mermaid eyes to embellished braids to glossy eyelid—We’ve seen it all, and tried it all. However when it came down to the brows, the internet went a little cray cray.

Beauty trends come and go but boy, oh boy this fad hit us hard. Over the months we witnessed our Instagram feeds looking like either a scene from a scary movie or a high-fashion editorial shoot. Naturally this viral look cannot be worn out of the house, but scroll down to take a look at this wacky beauty trend.

6. The Barbed Wire Brows

☰r u s t e d☰ A barbed-wire brow with textured rusty hues ✌ I generally prefer to work with cool tones, so I'm always taken aback by how warm tones completely change a look! @athenapaginton is the creator of this brow trend!

7. The Artsy Brows

ok so obviously this has gotten out of hand and it's hilarious and amazing but i wanted to clarify some stuff: 1. i joked about starting a trend in the caption of my first pic not about the actual makeup 2. drag queens have used glue on their brows since forever so please don't credit me for that lol 3. i know that brows are a sacred part of the face but consider this: there is lip art and eye art and tons of different forms of creative makeup, why is experimenting with brows so strange? shoutout to @popsugarbeauty, @huffpostwomen and @dailymail for making the best articles about this, go read them! and i can't thank you guys enough for your support, this feels unreal❤️ peacock feather brow: @cameleonfinland body paints, @katvondbeauty tattoo liner in Trooper, @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown, glue stick skin: @maccosmetics next to nothing Light Plus, pro longwear concealer in NC15 lower lid: @makeupstore Romantic Garden & Emerald eye pencils liner: @toofaced chocolate bar palette (Triple Fudge) lashes: @grimassuomi 325

8. The Rainbow Brows

I'm not the best at writing out my thoughts, but…Every year, Pride is a reminder of how it was started, as a powerful protest! It reminds me of how much people have sacrificed to get us where we are today, and also how much further we have to go, especially with visibility for trans people & POC. I stand with you with #Pride, my LGBTQIA+ family, I love you so much ❤️💛💚💙💜🖤 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• *I used @katvondbeauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Shades Outlaw, A-Go-Go, Dreamer, Echo mixed with Dreamer, Roxy, + @danessa_myricks Primary Yellow Colour Fix to create this @thealexbox inspired look* @sephora @sephoracanada

9. The Dragon Brows

☰d o v a h☰ Back in May I posted my original photo of #dragonbrows that I created for fun and it went viral after the lovely @abelwoman from @allure wrote an article on it. Last night I was notified that a YouTube channel with a very large following had created a video using looks from many talented makeup artists and they were not given any credit. My dragon brows were included in the video. I won't reference the channel because theives don't deserve recognition, but I will ask that if you ever use someone else's photo, GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK. It pisses me off knowing that the video is monetized and the creator didn't have the balls to credit the artists featured. Giving credit doesn't make you look less original, it shows that you're respectful and have a sense of community. So in light of all of this, I decided to re-do my own brow look today! The eyeshadow and dots are inspired by the amazingly talented @thesaraengel 🖤 Products used: @urbandecaycosmetics Original Primer Potion @coastalscents hot pot Olivewood @measurabledifference Enticed Eyeshadow palette (black shade) @starlookscosmetics Pro Liquid Liner (black) @ciatelondon Wonderwand Gel-Kohl hybrid liner (black) @eyeko Black Magic mascara #LWYMMD #eyebrows #browart #makeupart #mua #editorial #fashion #fashionphotography #makeup #glam #makeupporn #beautyblogger #ilovemakeup #beauty #bblogger #instalove #eotd #eyeoftheday #makeuplook #makeupbyme #crueltyfree #dragon #skyrim #got #weird #trend #lashes #motd #artsy
