French girls are embracing the under brow — aka floating brows - in a massive way on Pinterest and Instagram, but what the hell even is an an under/floating brow? Well - think of it as a modern-day way to wear liner like Twiggy did in the '60s.

Makeup artist Alexander James explains it best: "We live in the age of Instagram that's over saturated with makeup looks and ideas, but the under brow is a fresh, under explored area," he said. 

"I think it's such a unique look, especially because your brows are the feature that give the face the most expression and character, so when you play up them up or play with colour near them, you create a specific, personality driven look."

So, how do you wear it and actually pull it off? 

It's really quite simple. Just choose any colour or texture you'd like, pick up brow stencils at your local beauty store, and then use them as a guideline to fill in a brow shape below your actual brows, or freehand it by tracing underneath your eyebrow.

James recommends pairing the bold look with perfected skin, mascara, and a clear balm if you want your eyes to be the main focus. But if you want to balance out your dramatic brow, swipe on a bold lip color. Either way, the goal is to have fun with your makeup look, while looking chic AF, like the French.
