Some beauty trends cause surprise and admiration. Eyebrows in the form of pigtails are one of them. Where was he born and how to repeat such makeup if the soul requires experiments?

Pigtailed eyebrows are another trend that is causing controversy. As with wavy brows or feather brows that have been all the rage in recent years thanks to makeup artists and bloggers, opinions are divided. Some girls run to the store for eyebrow gel and watch video instructions in order to collect likes on Instagram later, while others do not see the point in such “tricks”.

Who invented braiding eyebrows?

Perfect eyebrows - what are they? According to the American blogger Eros Gomez, braided! It was he who first posted a photo on his Instagram that blew up social networks. True, Gomez soon admitted that he did not use cosmetics, but photoshop. But this fact did not stop makeup artists and beauty bloggers around the world. And soon, according to the hashtag braidedbrows (eyebrows-pigtails), there were already more than a hundred options for embodying this trend - already without optical illusions. All it took was sleight of hand, brushes and brow liner. In case you decide to repeat the experiment, we have prepared a photo instruction.

How to make pigtail eyebrows: step by step photo tutorial

First, prepare the necessary cosmetics:

  • NYX Professional Makeup Control Freak Eyebrow Gel ,

  • Giorgio Armani High Precision Brow Pencil - 1 .

  1. The easiest way to get braided brows is to use clear brow gel. First spread it in a generous layer along the entire length of the eyebrows.

  2. Then comb all the hairs up.

  3. After that, comb the lower half of the eyebrow down.

  4. To make the parting of the hairs more clear, you can use a cosmetic spatula, eyebrow tweezer handle or other thin tool.

  5. They will help to neatly distribute the "pigtail" .

  6. A more artistic way to make pigtail eyebrows is to draw them with an eyebrow pencil. Make sure it's darker than your brows or it won't be visible enough.

  7. However, not everyone is ready to patiently draw weaving on the eyebrows. Despite the fact that this experiment has been repeated more than once by makeup artists and beauty bloggers, the most popular way to “create” such makeup remains the use of photo editing programs. Pigtails on the eyebrows are “braided” after the photo is taken. It looks especially believable on dark eyebrows - on light eyebrows such a “focus” is less noticeable.

How to complement the makeup with pigtail eyebrows?

Pigtail eyebrows look unusual and attract attention. What can be added to them? Here are a couple of ideas.

  • The author of the trend himself combined such unusual eyebrows with rather bright, but delicate eye makeup. Too dark or, for example, neon shades are not the best choice. They will distract attention from the eyebrows, and the image as a whole will look overloaded. At the same time, you should not completely forget about eye makeup - otherwise they will simply “get lost”. Golden shadows can be applied to the entire moving eyelid, and darker ones can be shaded in the crease of the eyelid and closer to the outer corner. This will add depth to your makeup.

    If you wish, you can draw thin arrows and glue false eyelashes or limit yourself to mascara with a volume effect.

  • To make the look even more unusual, you can add unusual golden freckles to your pigtail eyebrows (you can draw them as realistic as possible or use unusually shaped sparkles - both options are acceptable).

    But first, carefully mask the redness and even out the tone of the face. You will find everything about how to create an imitation of freckles on your face and what tools you can use for this in this video tutorial.

  • On the other hand, to balance the makeup, you can put extra emphasis on the lips. An ultra-gloss finish, a metallic texture or, for example, small drawings will harmoniously complement the look.

  • Another option is two-tone lip makeup.

  • And if the occasion allows, lips with foil will be an interesting solution. To make such a lip makeup look flawless, first apply gloss, lipstick or varnish to match the foil. A metallic effect is best.
