Take a brow!
You might’ve noticed the bizarre new trend of wavy brows and lips on social media sites recently and while I don’t expect it to be taking off any time soon, it’s quite fascinating! The trend first started when make-up artist Jessica Brodersen (@instabeautybyjess) posted a pic on her Instagram account of a wavy brow creation and since then has gone viral, what with people posting their own versions. While many of these seem to be photoshopped, it does make me want to give it a go myself! Tell us what you think on Twitter @Friday_magazine.
