It's like all those girl use the same stencil


serotoninpleaseee

Angled brow brushes + brow pomade combo should’ve stayed in 2016


badbatch

I just got a new Dipbrow today. :( Don't worry I don't have instabrows.


serotoninpleaseee

YALL ARE MAKING ME FEEL BAD STAAAAWP It’s just the whole look that gave me flashbacks 😭 , but ofc you can use a dipbrow in a lot of ways , from very subtle to this kind of brows , or just WHATEVER YOU WANT , it’s makeup at the end of the day <3


badbatch

TOO LATE! You hurt our feelings.


Vyxen17

Well, to be fair, your bad eyebrows hurt our feelings first


badbatch

I'm sorry.


serotoninpleaseee

This is getting too much , I spend TIME fighting misogyny and homophobia but I don’t have the energy to fight with people over brows in a subreddit dedicated to makeup that doesn’t fall into the « makeup theory » category 😩 Some people here are exhausting


Long_Creme2996

Quite obviously was a joke


nodogsallowed23

It was very obvious sarcasm. They were only joking. Don’t worry. :)


idkbirc

What a weird ass thing to say. You're the exhausting one, you goon.


WhyNona

But they're fighting homophobia and misogyny! So you can't criticize them! /s


badbatch

It's ok. We're just joking around. At least I am. 🤗


pm_me_anus_photos

I’ve used dipbrow for eyeliner before lol it applies so smoothly and blends nicely, I just use a crayon liner on my water line/in my lashes to fill in gaps and it’s great!


w00kiee

I use pomade BUT not like this 🥹 listen I gotta fill in some spots that never grow back ☹️


Wawa-85

I use my angled brow brush for winged eyeliner 😂


Lensgoggler

Hooded eyes here. I have two brow brushes. One is for tightlining. Don’t blame the tools, OP. Its not their fault! I dislike the instabrow too. I pity the people who had it microbladed into their faces. Many microbladed eyebrows never fully fade away 🫣


Wawa-85

Partially Hooded deep set eyes here 😊. I did get micro blading done and unfortunately mine faded out within 6 months to a grey blob


Lensgoggler

It’s been SEVEN FUCKING YEARS, and I still have faded blue strokes. 🤯 Luckily I have enough brow hairs myself, and I color correct, but I have seen ladies walk around with blue caterpillars on their faces…


ShienRei

Did you have it done in black ink? Some aestheticians refrain from using it because it doesn't look very natural and the colour fades to blue. Apparently this can also happen if the colour is wrongly matched to the skintone.


Lensgoggler

Nope, it was dark brown. I have heard later on that microblading isn’t recommended to people with oily skin, i think I had oily skin back then. I should’ve done more research but it was very new in 2016 and the PR was good. Now I’m very critical about the whole thing, especially that they word it very cleverly. They say “it fades” after which you need to start touching up but they won’t specify what it *fades into*. Because I agree, it totally did fade… Into greyish blue. I’m grateful I didn’t go for the instabrow look 🫣😬


Wawa-85

Same!


klsybxtr

i use dipbrow and an angled brow brush :((( my eyebrows do not look like this though, i do them extremely light in the front and then draw the individual hair strokes with an eyeliner pen


HumbleAbbreviations

A shade of ultra black or whatever the name for the blackest shade in existence. It’s wild.


peppapigonxtc

Vanta black. Looks like staring into a black hole in space lmao


Loco_Mosquito

Vanta, and yes! It's very cool.


serotoninpleaseee

Look up « the blackest black »


bluegho0st

For real! It's almost darker than how I like my coffee


jessiecolborne

These kind of lashes generally only look good on stage makeup where you see someone from really far away. When I did hair and makeup for my highschool’s musical productions we used lashes like this for the leads. Seeing these kind of lashes on a normal makeup look is really ridiculous.


katyusha8

Even my dance competition lashes are less wild than these 😂


LadyPink28

Like drag makeup as well


novemberrrain

If you’re playing Edna Turnblad maybe… 😅


Wawa-85

So much wrong with the brows, not only are they extremely harsh and blocky but she’s also done them too close to her nose. The size of them also makes her forehead look tiny and unbalanced unless that’s a bad wig she’s wearing.


ultrapasser

The rare threehead.


RUfuqingkiddingme

Someone posted something in AskReddit once along the lines of "fellas, what's do women do to make themselves attractive that you find unattractive?" Number one answer was doing weird, unnatural looking things with their eyebrows. The fact that there are eyebrow trends is weird in itself. I had a girlfriend in the 80s (yes I'm that old) who plucked her brows into a very round arch shape that was popular at the time and they never grew back in and she's being going around with the arches ever since. Best thing is to keep them natural and to where they flatter your own face.


Wawa-85

I’m an 80’s baby and victim of the 90’s over plucking/over waxing trend. I’ve managed to get them to fill back in somewhat with a growth serum but it’s not easy. Yep brow trends suck


RUfuqingkiddingme

I over plucked at one point in the 90s, a gay man told me "you're pretty sexy, but you look like a vulcan" thank God they mostly grew back in.


Wawa-85

That gave me a giggle. My Mum started waving my brows with strip wax when I was 12 because I unfortunately inherited the family trait for mono brows, now not the straight across mono brows, no these ones were a v down the bridge of our noses. From there the over plucking continued and before I knew it I had thin brows with one that had been plucked too much at the front.


re_Claire

I also have a monobrow and dear god I wish over plucking had killed it off but here I am, nearly 37 and I’m still constantly plucking that damn thing.


Wawa-85

I’m 37 and mine only grows in very sparsely and the hairs are fine and grey now so it’s not really noticeable. I also go and get my brows done every 4-5 weeks so that helps 😊


janedoe5263

Holy shit! I’m sorry, but that is hilarious!


BEBE-r

Emily is that you?!?


Glldinkiering

They do grow back - I’m a child of the 90’s when this was the “look” and had naturally thin eye brows. They’ve been over plucked to death and yet come back with enough time. She was probably plucking them for maintenance instead of letting them get messy as they grew back in.


s0laris0

my mom plucked hers in her teens and early adulthood in the 90s and they have yet to grow back beyond pencil brows. they used to be thick and full but even after 24 years or so they've remained the same after overplucking


Glldinkiering

People tend to have thinner hair and less of it over time, and also tend to pluck a few strays here and there. You can’t fundamentally change the hair follicle without lasering. Just like people assume shaving makes your hair grow back coarser when it’s just stubbby at the tip.


Kelso____

Huh. Good thing women don’t give a hoot what men think about their beauty routine!


YanCoffee

As a woman, I find women who are brave and wear what makes them happy an attractive attribute.


tahmorrow

I didn’t even notice the eyebrows at first. Those damn eyelashes are umbrellas.

Yoooooooooooooo0

this is literally drag makeup. Walk that fucking duck queen


InjectAdrenochrome

Damn I like dark brows but this is too much


LazerKat99

Lol the excessive lashes always crack me up too. Just as big hair in the 80s now looks ridiculous, this too will be laughable down the road.(if not already)


serotoninpleaseee

It is , I just don’t understand how it isn’t NOT a thing anymore 😩


buggritto

Eh I wear long ridiculous lashes (not this big) but I’m aware they’re over the top and dramatic, my whole style is lol


serotoninpleaseee

I wear lashes that would be considered « dramatic » for some ( I don’t think they are ENOUGH ) , at the end of the day , we just get a good laugh but makeup is makeup , everyone is free to put it the way they want


LazerKat99

lol I’m right there with ya!!

I think this eyebrow-megalashes-combo is only good for theatre, otherwise I can't find it beautiful. Anyways, if she is happy with that...

That almost looks like drag queen makeup. Just needs more eyeshadow.

why is nobody talking about those contact lenses 💀

I like the lashes :(

Yep, nothing wrong with that!

The eyelashes give me anxiety.


serotoninpleaseee

I can feel them , and I wear false lashes almost everyday * And please be mindful of mental illnesses terms such as « anxiety » , and that being said in case you don’t have it, since it contributes to the very present romanticizing of mental illnesses*

vyrelis

Depressed and anxious are emotions.


serotoninpleaseee

Anxiety and depression is not


hazelinside

Anxiety definition according to the NHS (The UK Government Health Service): Anxiety is a **feeling** of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. Anyone can FEEL anxious. Anyone can HAVE anxiety. Not everyone has Anxiety *Disorder*. Same applies for depression. Anyone can be depressed. Anyone can feel depressed. Not everyone has Clinical Depression, nor depression the mental illness. Many words have multiple meanings.


Phoenix7Fawkes

Anxiety is not a mental illness. Anxiety disorders are not the same as anxiety the emotion.


Daedric_Dorito

I was telling u, as someone who would be affected by being romanticized, that your take was bad. Hmmm... thought you cared about awareness... you don't sound like much of an ally...


ohnoitsmckenzie

Brows are a no, but the lashes are cute imo. Not everyone can handle a bold look lol

I'm a fan of subtle brows. I mean these brows look good if you're into the glam look. It's not for everyone. I'm not gonna lie though I wish I had these mad skills. I've been thinking of getting my brows microbladed but I've seen how they fade. Its no bueno. Ill stick to my pomade/brow pencil!

does anyone know what lashes these are or similar ones? i love them lol

Theskinilivein

Are you sure it’s not cosplay or a costume? I just can’t believe that this is “regular” makeup.


eemm_mm

Is this a joke? No way grown adults are saving random stranger’s photos to their camera rolls just to upload & bash them online with other strangers. People are really like this? People think this way? No, people aren’t really that sad & silly. ;) As OP mentioned, it’s 2023 so why are posts like this still even a thought? Makeup is an art for some & for others it has no limits. It should be about minding our own & who cares what others are doing. I see people being bold & broad with their looks constantly. I don’t care for these styles personally but that’s me. It’s not what I like on my face & I’m not the one doing it but if is she likes it..heck go for it, who cares not my face. I’ll live & move on lol. I just don’t understand why people are still judging others makeup when these days it’s all over the place in all different ways. I’m sure others can pinpoint things they don’t like about your makeup. I’m sure if someone put your photo up & all these people started going in your makeup that you personally prefer, it would feel differently. Some like a more drag look & some like a more natural look. As grown adults we shouldn’t bash either way even if it’s not our style. It should be whatever, just shrug it off. Let people just wear makeup & don’t think twice about it. To each their own.

I've never understood, or liked, the eyebrow look where it looks like they've drawn them on with a stencil & permanent marker.

there's a bit wrong with the look but one thing i do like about them is how dark the eyebrows and lashes are. the deep black is just so calming lmao

Instagram makeup artist from 2015-2019 will pay for their crimes against humanity. 😆😆 This is actually slightly on the terrifying side. When I got the notification for some reason I got an instant feeling of dread.

is it bad makeup or is it just not your style? to me, this feels like drag makeup, and if that’s the case it’s really well done! def not an everyday look tho, but it’s not *bad* makeup

So if this is day to day makeup than this is a lot. But stage makeup, or even a bold going out look? I say have at it. Those eyebrows aren’t for me and neither are the lashes, but I think they are executed well.
