The fashion that dominates Instagram reminds us a bit of taking a trip to the end of the internet.
Images uploaded by unknown sources are usually some form of a joke, a sort of embarrassing prevailing trend or fad, for example, avoiding gluten. Some people buy into these jokes and trends, while other not so much. There are those who don’t realize what’s behind the image and treat new instagram trends seriously. That’s what happened in this case.
Stella Sironen, a Finnish makeup artist, uploaded the first picture of feathered eyebrows without knowing that she would trigger a storm. She just wanted to make fun of today’s makeup trend that convinces even women with thin, fine eyebrow hairs to emphasize them very strongly. Combined with usually dark-colored lips, this creates a kitsch effect similar to someone from the Adams family. Unfortunately, not everyone seemed to understand the joke.
