Amandla Stenberg was inspired by a TikTok trend to shave off their eyebrows.
The Hate U Give star has been sharing skincare, hair and make-up tips in a beauty tutorial for Vogue. While explaining how experimenting with different hairstyles has kept them busy during the Covid-19 lockdown, Amandla revealed they are “loving” a new eyebrow look.
“I just did that thing that everyone is doing now where I shaved off the end of my eyebrows because of godda*n TikTok so I have a different eyebrow shape than usual,” Amandla shared while applying tinted gel to their eyebrow hairs. “But honestly… I’m absolutely loving it.”
Amandla’s brows still appeared well shaped and full, with just a subtle fade at the tips. Vogue reports The Hunger Games star is likely to have been inspired by the ‘fox eye’ trend circulating on social media recently, which has seen beauty fans shave sections of their brows in a bid to look like supermodels Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
Amandla made the brow revelation near the end of the tutorial. Earlier in the video the 21-year-old also demonstrated how to create the perfect box braid using curl styling cream and edge control gel, describing the look as “gender neutral, but still femme”.
Amandla went on to share their make-up regime, which can vary from subtle to full on smoky eyes.
“As I’ve gotten older, my relationship with make-up has shifted depending on how I”m feeling in my body, how often I’m having to wear it for work, so many things,” Amandla explained. “I feel like I have a relationship with it now that feels way less about covering up flaws and insecurities around myself, more about just having fun.”
