– My friends are gonna have
so many questions after this, and I’m so okay with it.
– As you can see, I’m drawing the infinity sign,
’cause beauty lives on forever. ♪ (industrial music) ♪ – (FBE) So today, we’re gonna
be showing you a few examples of a recent viral makeup trend.
– Ooh. I like makeup. – Is it that squiggly shit? Is it? See, it sucks
that I even know about it. (laughs) – Wavy brows!
– Wiggly eyebrows! – (both) Yes! (laughs) – My dad knows about them.
– Yeah. – Like, he walked in
when I was doing my makeup, he’s like, “Ooh,
are you doing wavy brows?” I’m like, (laughs) “No, I’m not.” – (FBE) All right,
here is the first one. – (laughs) Whoa.
This is a trend? – It’s a look.
It’s cool. – “New brow trend.
When you’re tired of being basic. Somebody dare me
to go out like this.” This is something I would
think you’d wear in Halloween. – At a certain point,
it looks pretty. It does, but as a costume. – I have seen one.
I didn’t know it was a trend. I thought it was just someone
being funny on Twitter. – This was the first one I saw. And at first I thought
it was a joke, and then I saw other people
started doing it as a trend, and I was like,
“This is disgusting.” – (FBE) Well, this was posted
by beauty blogger promisetamang, who said that she posted the photo
to try something new, something fun with her makeup.
– Oh, she’s the first one to do it? (disbelievingly) No. Wow. – (FBE) Well, the photo
blew up, causing many people to also post photos with themselves using what is being
called a lot of things, but mainly squiggle eyebrows.
– At least it has a catchy name. – This is actually cool.
The more I look at it, the more artistic it looks to me.
– (FBE) And here are some others. – I mean, the artwork is impressive,
but if you’re doing that thinking it’s some trendy– like you’re gonna look hot
or attractive, eh. – It just looks like you
accidentally messed up, like you were doing it in the car, and it was like you went over
a really big speed bump. Not how it’s supposed to look.
– It’s artistic. That’s why I cannot judge it
and hate on it, ’cause it’s artistic. It’s pretty. – Wow! People are getting
so creative with the makeup. – When trends like this hit,
I don’t want it to hit in, like, tiny–
only a couple people do it. I want everyone to do it, and anyone that’s not
in on the trend, they just go outside, and they just
see everyone with squiggly eyebrows. – Whoa. This girl did it all over.
I see a squiggly contour. I see a squiggly eyeliner.
– (FBE) You know makeup well. – Dude, I’ve done a lot
of makeup challenges, you know. I’m good with this.
I had to go to Sephora, buy stuff for my sister.
Dude, I’m out here. – It’s more looking
like a piece of art. If you print that
and put it on a frame, I would put that in my room. – I’ve seen the eyeliner
done like that before, but that is so cool with the bronzer
and the highlighter and stuff. – Clever. Woo.
– The lips are really cool, too. – Especially with makeup,
because I know I do it, like, we express our creativity
in different ways. It’s like an art,
but you’re the canvas. – This one’s just weird.
That looks like a sad clown. – It’s symmetric.
It’s pretty– it’s impressive. Like, I can’t align my beard. – He’s slaying, but I don’t know
if I like it on the lipstick. – “Oh, y’all wanted a wave, ay?” Dude, this guy got a–
this guy is clean! – Everyone’s hopping on this trend.
Anyone who knows how to do makeup sees it and they’re like,
“I think I can– Can I do that too?” – Whoa! All right, this person
did their lips insane. And the eyebrows on fleek. – Beautiful!
– Looks great. I know.
– His lips are so cool. – His eyebrows look
like water ripples. – I don’t know what it is
about the lips. It looks like he’s been kissed
by some type of sea creature. – It’s something new. There’s always something
in every single month that somebody always does.
But I don’t look at new ways to figure out how
to screw up my eyebrows, ’cause I get mad
when I can’t do my eyebrows. – God, these just get worse.
I don’t get it. – The new move
is squiggly everything. The face, the eyebrows, the lips. – That looks like
a play off the Joker? – It’s almost like
Joker-esque makeup, where he’s going all the way up.
These are going ham. – This is how the internet is,
you know, like, it takes one person to do something and then
everybody else is gonna follow. – Oh my god. Are you kidding me?
– Wow! This one is creative. She looks like an alien. – Kind of looks like an Avatar. – She’s trying to hit all her trends
where she’s like just bedazzle-faced,
squiggly eyebrows. – I felt like it wasn’t
a more serious makeup look, but an artsy type. – I actually (chuckles)
like this one the most out of all of them,
because it’s so off-the-wall that it looks cool.
– That’s kind of cool, ’cause you’re not really
focused on her eyebrows. You’re focused on the shade
of how she turns from blue to pink. – (laughs) “Squidward
squiggle brows. Probably the best thing I’ve done.”
Honestly, that’s great. – Just because I love Spongebob,
I’ll let that one slide. – Now that is art. – I swear to god
I was thinking of Squidward for some reason, ’cause he has
those squiggly tentacles and that’s what–
perfect, bravo. I like this one. – This is talent, but also humor
at the same time, and it’s great. – Looks like every piece of him–
oh, even his chain! Hell yeah. Squiggle game for life.
– I like the jokes, how they turn it
into something else. I like that.
– I see what you guys are doing. You guys are going from
the legit makeup things to slowly letting the internet
do its beautiful job. – (both laughing) – That’s my squiggle
brow right there. – Super natural. You can tell.
– I think it looks good on him. I think he can pull it off. – They should just do
a SnapChat filter at this point. None of us have to wear makeup
if we’re in our house by ourselves. We just put a SnapChat filter,
and it looks like we have makeup. – He’s on the wave. I feel it.
I feel it. Innovative. It got big, I think,
just because it’s so normal to just see, oh, having
the perfect makeup or whatever. This is something fun
and new. No one’s done it. – (FBE) Before we talk
about the trend, there is something that we
want you to try yourself. – You’re gonna make me
squiggle my eyebrows, aren’t you? – (FBE) Gonna bring you over
some makeup. – (both gasp) Yes!
– Oh my gosh! – (laughs) Yes!
I’m so excited! – I’ve never tried makeup before. – My friends are gonna have
so many questions after this, and I’m so okay with it.
– Do I have to? – (FBE) (chuckles) Not
if you don’t want to. – (laughs) No! My eyebrows
look good today! – My eyebrows are so big. I don’t have anywhere
to go down, I don’t think. I’m just gonna be on my eye. – I have no idea
what I’m doing right now. – How far does this go?
I don’t even know. I’ll make it connect
to my hairline maybe? – As you can see,
I’m drawing the infinity sign ’cause beauty lives on forever. – Props to the people that do this.
– Ooh, this looks real sperm-like
right here. (chuckles) – I’m gonna go to dinner tonight
with my friends and I’m just not gonna take this off.
– Now what I really wanna focus on is the beard, though.
Let’s get the squiggly– oh, shit. – I feel like symmetrically,
I got an A. – Vogue. – I think I look pretty.
Pretty damn [bleep] fly. – I’m not a fan of it. And look, I feel like
I’m kind of pulling it off. – As you guys can see,
I’ve connected the eyebrows with the beard
to show continuity. (chuckles) – If you compare them,
I really prefer this one over this one. (laughs) But, I mean, it’s a way
to express creativity. – (FBE) So while many online
were quick to dismiss this trend, some say they view doing makeup more
as a form of artistic expression even if you don’t necessarily
wear it when you go out. What do you think about the idea
of using makeup that way, not as an actual look
to go out in public? – I mean, I wouldn’t really say
your face is a canvas, you know? There’s a difference
between a painting and your face. – That totally changes
the whole makeup industry. Even scrolling through social media, people paint their faces,
they put jewels on them, so it doesn’t even look
just a face of makeup to go out. It looks like
their face is a canvas. – It’s kind of cool to see how–
the different ways how people get artistic with, you know,
all the different kinds of makeup. A lot of people think, “Oh,
makeup’s just for girls.” But, I mean, guys can do it, too. If you have that
artistic ability, why not? If I were to do this,
I feel like I’d do it, you know, as a way to express my creativity. Not necessarily to
wear them in public, Because, you know, it’s not
that I want to be seen as like, oh, she does crazy makeup.
It’s just that I do it for myself, kind of to see
how creative I can get. I love to paint,
and I love to do makeup, and it’s like they’re
basically the same thing, except I like makeup more,
because it’s, like, you can do it on yourself.
You become basically a masterpiece. – (FBE) So finally, while many
started watching beauty videos to get tips on how
to do their own makeup, these creators have evolved
well beyond just that. What do you think
about how for many, beauty vlogging started as primarily
tutorials, but has now expanded to include all different
types of content, and started a whole new vertical
for online content. – I think that’s amazing.
At first, all the makeup tutorials were literally just looks to go out,
but now makeup tutorials are, like, how to look
like the blue alien from Avatar. – It’s really cool. I mean,
a lot of things evolve. It’s the natural evolution
of another genre on YouTube. In this case, it’s makeup. – It’s just a good way
to show everybody else that makeup isn’t only, you know,
because I want so-and-so to think I’m prettier.
I want to look pretty. It’s like, no.
I want to be creative. I want to express myself. And, you know, other people
are bringing light to that and showing that it’s not just this, like, I can do kind of what
I wanna do with makeup. – Very interesting to see the way it completely progressed
as just a thing. I think YouTube itself
helped with that, because it was like, oh, what?
We’ve seen your day routine, your day look, now let’s see if you can do it
with a fidget spinner, or let’s see the craziest
thing you can do, or the craziest makeup tutorial.
So I kind of feel like YouTube breeds creativity and craziness. If you like doing it,
expressing yourself, then [bleep] everyone else.
Go wear squiggle eyebrows! – Thanks for watching this episode

And so you know, it’s really hard to write squiggle on
your forehead with a mirror. It came out backwards, I think,
but– yeah, it came out backwards.
