Fit to Slit: All about 2020’s Eyebrow Slit Trend
Aug. 23, 2020
When it comes to defining a generation, the eyebrows have it. From the skinny lines of the 90s to the bright-eyed and bushy-browed 2010s, eyebrows define your aesthetic. In 2020, the eyebrow slit has reached peak popularity among beauty enthusiasts.
An eyebrow slit involves shaving off a small piece of your eyebrow. The resulting line is usually slightly angled, providing a flattering enhancement to your arch. Some opt for a demure line on one side, while others may shave multiple lines on one or both brows. It’s a fun style, but not a new one.
The eyebrow slit was originally known as an eyebrow cut. It was worn by the main players of 80s and 90s hip-hop, but MC Big Daddy Kane is usually credited with igniting the trend. So if you want to play with this look, you’ve got to give credit to the originals.
How to Slit Your Eyebrows With a Razor
Tape off a section of your brow, or use white eyeliner to map where you’d like your cut to go. Using either an electric razor or a small, sharp blade made for facial hair, carefully shave off a little line at a time. Go slowly. You can always shave more, but you can’t add hair back once it’s gone. Afterward, remove the tape/eyeliner and tweeze any stray hairs. Voila!
Have Fun with Color
The great thing about eyebrows is they enhance your features just like make-up, but they’re a natural look for a bare-faced beauty. Try dying your brows for a truly transformative experience.
Wondering if your original brow shape/color will grow back? You may have to wait a few weeks, but don’t worry. This is a temporary change.
If You Like It, Put a Bling on It
Enhance your new lines with a little bit of pixie dust. We love how @filthysilky is always sporting an architectural brow. Don’t you just want to dive into these glistening, deep blue beauties?
How to Slit Your Brows With Make-Up
Some folks shave the ends of their brows off, allowing for a higher arches and more precise make-up application. Here, @makeupbyjanedoe draws the shape she wants, then cleans everything up with concealer and highlighter.
If you aren’t ready to shave your brows at all, just section a tiny piece and apply a full-coverage liquid concealer. After allowing your concealer to dry, take a precision brush and go in with a setting powder. This method will be less effective on thick brows, but can create the illusion from a distance.
Slit the Difference
If you really want your eyebrow cut to sing, and aren’t one to shy away from attention try a playful two-toned effect. You’re sure to turn heads, especially with a lip color to match.
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Just added to skincare routine
I usually use some of the the tatcha dewy skin collection skincare, I just added this to the routine. Literally tatcha is the only thing that keeps my skin care at this moment. The dewy collection is great for dry skin but it is a bit pricey. The $12 face mask thoooo be hitting. Anybody else use this brand or want to use it?
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C.

So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks!

You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
