Instagram brows are on the rise
At bh, we’ve seen our fair share of weird beauty trends, and this week, the Instagram brow has got our attention.
Also known as the HD brow, or ‘the fade’, the inner section of the Instagram eyebrow is barely visible, before thickening out and becoming more defined towards the outer edges.

Apparently, it’s actually a commonly used make-up technique that photographs well – which explains why it’s become so popular on social media channels.
But with Wayne Goss (the YouTube makeup sensation who came up with the name) calling them a “really frightening thing” and saying they “SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!”, it’s clear the beauty world is quite divided on this one.

Personally, I am all for a bold brow look – but Goss (who's best known for creating the make-up brush with a wait-list) sums this one up better than I ever could: "Eyebrows are a frame," he says. "Now imagine buying the most beautiful picture you've ever seen. One of sheer beauty. And then you put it in the darkest, thickest, ugliest frame you've ever seen. That's what happens when you go mental on the brows."
Would you wear the Instagram brow? What other unusual beauty trends have you tried?
