Heartbeat Brows are Here and We Don’t Know What to Think

By  | 

We know that by now, you’re probably completely fed up with all of the wacky eyebrow trends that seem to hit the web almost every day now, but stick with us because there’s a new eyebrow trend making the rounds, and who knows… maybe you’ll feel differently about this one!

Thanks to Kuwait-based makeup artist Zakia Serroukh Wahbi, the latest eyebrow trend is one she calls “EKG Brows.” If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because you or someone you know has been to the doctor and has gotten an electrocardiogram, which is a test that records the heart’s activity. As you can see, the look she created turned her brows into the EKG waves of an actual heartbeat, somehow making us think “aww” and “WTF” at the same time.

We know what you’re thinking: How do people come up with this stuff?! Well, apparently it doesn’t take much thought at all! Zakia told Popsugar, “I just woke up one day and decided to do this look. I guess it’s just an idea like any other that crosses my mind every day.” Hmm… as crazy as it may be, we have to admit that although regular people probably won’t rock this look on the daily, it may actually work for a high fashion photoshoot.

In the photos she shared, you’ll notice that Zakia also decided to take this look a step further by making the wings of her eyeliner look like heartbeats as well, and people on Instagram are just loving of it! The comments are full of fire and heart emojis, and inevitably, the occasional hater. But, we’ve gotta be real… anyone who’s confident enough to bring yet another crazy eyebrow trend into the world is prepared for the backlash, and even though we probably won’t be hopping onboard the “EKG brow” trend at the moment, we totally applaud her creativity and confidence. You go, girl!
