It seems we can’t go a week without a new ridiculous trend hitting Instagram and making us wonder what is wrong with the world.
And this week is no different. Now I love McDonald’s as much as the next man, but quite frankly, I would never think about getting eyebrows drawn on to mimic their trademark two arches.
Well, that’s what people are doing online, and it makes absolutely no sense. Some people are even colouring their eyebrows in yellow to complete the fast food fashion look.
"Ba Da Ba Ba Bah I'm lovin it!" ???? T A G someone who love McDonalds ? ✨ Last night I was on my phone after a long bad day, then I saw @hudabeauty post a McDonald Brow video which I thought it was funny and it made my night. I've never done any trendy brows but this one definitely made me want to recreate it lol ? I had so much fun filming it ?#Mcdonaldsbrows @benefitcosmetics Precisely, my Brow #4 @veramona Cakeandbake sponge @kissnypro Pro touch setting powder "invisible" @lorealmakeup Infallible Pro Glow concealer
If the trend makes you want to frown and get angry at the state of fashion, then bust out those eyebrow pencils and rectify that right away into the arches.
Basically, ‘McDonald’s brows’ are achieved when the fashionista makes their existing brows invisible using powder and concealer, then painting on faux brows as high as possible to mirror the iconic golden arches. All jokes aside, nobody thinks this is serious and it’s a laugh but…
The trend really took off with the Instagram account @hudabeauty, who almost certainly did this as a joke – as usual though – things got out of hand and it became a massive trend.
It just goes to show how quickly people will jump on an odd trend like this.
If you want to look more expressive, then this is a great way to add that little something extra to your Friday night beauty regime.
One of the most popular posts sporting the new trend reads:
(THIS IS NOT EDITED I actually did this) When @ hudabeauty tells you to do something, YOU FKING DO IT. Me and my best friends are literally crying of laughter.
This took me forever my damn brows are invincible they wouldn’t glue down LMAO…

Well, there you have it. This actually reminds us of the Nike swoosh eyebrows which did the rounds a while back.
Yesterday, makeup artist Huda Kattan, who boats a staggering 22 million Instagram followers, shared a snap of the brows, effectively ruining 2017.
Social media @slayagebyjess created the look using a $10 Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Linger in Blackest Black.
I really REALLY want to encourage you guys to start your makeup page if it's been something you've been wanting to do, even if you just wanna do it for fun. I know it can be intimidating but honestly I'm so glad I made the decision to start my own. You don't "have to have" anything to start. You don't have to have a lot of makeup or camera or even that much skill. In the second slide I show you my first looks I posted and even though I wasn't bad for everyday wear, I wasn't anything special at makeup. The 3rd shows you my first phone I used for this page and the phone I currently use. I don't even have an iPhone and I make it work. And the last shows the only 2 palettes I had and the lashes I started with. I basically didn't have shit. I've had a few people ask me how to start so I thought I'd make this lil thing for you guys. Let me know if you have any other questions, hopefully this helps! ?

Something about the McDonald’s brows seems just that little bit worse to me, compared with the Nike. Though they are both abominations, McDonald’s brows seem extra capitalistic.
Nike brows? Nose hair extensions?? What in the actual fuck ?!!?

I think the fact the eyebrows actually curve in the wrong direction is a point against the Nike swoosh, but to put it politely we could all do without them.
It won’t be long until we’re drawing a full Subway foot-long across our foreheads for them Insta likes. You heard it here first.
