From Hip Hop to Instagram - We Check Out the Eyebrow Slit Trend!

Aug. 23


Eyebrow slits are all over social media right now, from the cute girl next door looks of Tik Tok star Areeka Haq to much edgier and more alternative looks. Here we explore the origins of the eyebrow slit craze, and showcase some of the coolest looks we found on Instagram!
Eyebrow slits are thin vertical gaps in the eyebrow hair. They can be created by a professional using a razor, tape, and a VERY steady hand. While you might be feeling brave (or reckless) enough to try this yourself, we wouldn’t recommend it as done badly, you can end up with a bald patch instead. Not cool.  
If you want to try out some of these looks to post on your Instagram feed, you can always fake it with concealer instead! 
The eyebrow slit (or eyebrow cut) trend originated in the 80s and 90s and was popularized by hip hop artists way before social media even existed! Some sources credit MC Big Daddy Kane with popularizing the trend, which has now been showcased by women from all backgrounds across their Instagram feeds. We’ve selected a few of the more unusual and interesting looks for you to enjoy.


We love this look created by makeup artist Anupreet Bakshi - she called it ‘Bold and Fierce’, and we can’t think of a better way to describe it! The combination of eyebrow slits, leopard eye makeup and subtle lips is both unusual and beautiful. 


This asymmetrical look by makeup artist Kayla Laurie is really striking. One eyebrow with a slit, the other without. White winged liner with black mascara on one eye, black winged liner with white mascara on the other. Complete the look with a dab of rose colored lip gloss. 


How’s this for an alternative grungy take on the eyebrow slit look? Thin slit brows, bold winged eye liner and mascara, pewter colored lips and silver-gray hair - you have to agree, self-taught makeup artist Julka Karwat has created an amazing look.


One way the look has evolved is the fishtail brow look. If you thought peachy makeup was only for Granny, think again! Alice Fiorini makes it look edgy and modern, particularly with those amazing brows and that beautiful hair color.


And for a look that could never be described a s subtle - but that’s a GOOD thing, right? - check out this look from Mehron Makeup. It’s got it all - asymmetric fishtail brows, face painting, rainbows, luscious glossy lips. And that hair! And those tattoos! OMG....

No-Heat Style
Let’s learn a no heat style! Start by gathering your hair to one side Begin a rope braid in the front by twisting two pieces. Add hair to each section and twist again. Continue this pattern until you reach your ear. Split the remaining hair into two. While holding the section pop index finger and thumb through. Grab through the other section and repeat! Secure with an elastic. Xo

My issue was on of the shadows was hard. It kept rolling up as I was trying to get it out of the package. The shades are very pretty especially greenstone. It's very pigmented. I'm not sure if I would purchase any of these products. Your thoughts? (Gifted) #whoisnee #cheriecreator

Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊
