The one topic which is always trending for one or the other reason is Beauty and Makeup. Bloggers and Make-up artists have actively started creating looks which are meant to be shown on Instagram posts and stories rather than to be worn on in public. These make up looks are popular for their creativity and unique factor. Interestingly, make up artists are not playing with traditional eye and lips any more.

The trend #FeatherBrow was initiated by Finnish makeup artist Stella Sironen, who created this eyebrow style using glue stick. The makeup artist shared an image of slick feather eyebrows which were parted horizontally down the middle. The eyes stood out against the flawless skin and holographic eye makeup.
