Been loving my no-brow looks a little bit extra this past week. Or so. You know, this one, that I wear regardless of whether I’m going to work or going out (read: going to gig in Glasgow, I haven’t suddenly become a person who goes out):
I was under the impression that I was just trying to make 16-year-old me happy, i.e. makeup inspired by any member of Marilyn Manson.
And if we’re being honest, it’s possible that it’s also a result of the fact that I haven’t quite mastered the art of the brow – I want to blame not having a lot to work with, but that’s not really an excuse – in addition to being thoroughly lazy. Ignoring brows saves me at least 5 minutes in the morning. Not only from not doing brows, but because no brows works real well with no eyeliner; another step you can just go ahead a skip!
So basically, I thought it was just me. And a handful of other people who consumed too much Manson.
But apparently, according to accounts I follow on Insta, not Manson fans, nor MUAs just being creative, but people who do know how to do brows properly and who do know their makeup, this no-brow thing is predicted to be a trend in 2017.
So I’ve picked up a trend..? And also, we’re going straight from bushy brows to no brows??
If so, that’s great for so many reasons!
Most important reason: I always did want people in general to look more like Manson.
Also. Pretty much only chance I’ll ever get to be on trend. Yay?
