Instagram has this thing with brows...but lately it's less about filling or embellishing them and more about getting creative with styling the actual hairs. It began with the feather brow (opens in new tab), continued with barbed wire brow (opens in new tab), and is now peaking with dragon brow.

Instagram user @harlibi (opens in new tab), a self-taught, 23-year-old makeup artist from Oregon, is the woman behind the latest iteration. The MUA, who goes by "V," posted the serpent-inspired arch to her feed a few days ago, noting in the caption that she was inspired by Stella Sironen (opens in new tab), the brainchild behind the feather brow.

To create the look, V brushed her brow hairs upwards using a spoolie, then shaped the hairs into six spikes meant to resemble that which you'd find on a dragon's back. She then applied lash glue to each individual spike to hold the hairs in place.

Once V saw her reptilian brow shapes (opens in new tab) gaining popularity, she posted a note to her followers revealing that she's only been doing makeup for two weeks! How's that for talent?
