From shimmering lips to glitter bomb lids, there have been many ways to add holiday cheer to your visage. And with Christmas around the corner, it is sure to add a smile to your face, a spring in your step and a twinkle not only in your eyes but in your eyebrows too! It looks like that dear Santa is hungry for some innovation – not in the wardrobe but makeup department.
Here is a cue –
“Oh Christmas brow, oh Christmas brow, how lovely are your arches…”
Got it?? Think hard.
This is not just a Christmas carol, my dear. It is the latest “brow” trend to reach Earth. In fact, this is the latest craze to raise your eyebrows. Yeah, eyebrows get to be super-fabulous this year. After all, the lifestyle vlogger who is the brains behind this super cool trend has put in a lot of innovation and creativity into it.
Christmas Tree Brows!
Heard of them or hearing them for the first time?
Well, thankfully we have caught them just in time for the holiday season, ain’t it? So that you know how to turn those boring tufts of hair above your eyes (eyebrows in short) into a joy-bringing and sparkling centerpiece.
The Christmas tree eyebrows are an extension of the Santa hat brows, bauble brows, feather brows.
Who Started This Trend?
The credit of it goes to Canadian makeup artist-cum-beauty guru Taylor R. In short, ‘taytay_xx’.
She is a YouTube lifestyle vlogger who started this festive brow trend called Christmas tree brows!
A couple of days ago this month, taytay_xx posted a video on Instagram. The caption she gave was “Christmas Tree Eyebrows are here. Why stop at your sweater? Spread Christmas joy via your face.”
That’s cool thinking!!

Now how did ‘taytay_xx’ do it?
She parted her eyebrows down the center. After which, she shaped little brow-hair branches on each side, added tree baubles and a little star on top.
Taylor R told Business Insider that it took a few hours to figure out the technique, along with some trial and error. “Now I could probably do it in 10 minutes because I figured out what products and techniques work best,” she explained.
“Everyone is making it their own with their own colors and decorations and that makes me so happy!” added Taylor.
The inside scoop on this sensational makeup fad is that Christmas tree eyebrows are a modified version of the ‘feather brow’ look (which also was a trend earlier this year). Only thing is extra baubles (rhinestones) and glitter have been added as festive toppings.
Yes, the making of Christmas brows involves tweaking your brows into a tree-shape and then adding “ornaments” (either glitter or jewels or in some cases a green tint).
All this has taken the world of social media by storm. Seems like Instagrammers and Twitterati are head over heels in love with it. Am wondering which celebs have fallen for it and have taken to this hottie brow job.
But all said and done, this eyebrow trend (rarest to rarest, dunno) is most bizarre and intriguing and a quirky concept which is catching on fast amongst the online beauty community.
Taylor R recently shared a video tutorial on her channel detailing how to get the look. The video and associated social media posts have got over 127,000 views and thousands of likes. This is the hottest makeup trend for this Holiday season we can bet!
P.S: The Canadian makeup artist Taylor R is such a trendsetter is no joke. Other beauty bloggers tried to outdo her design. And so, the Christmas tree eyebrow wars started off. This led to the ladies adding little pieces of golden wire or extra fur to add some fluff to their branches. Well, there’s no stopping anyone’s wild imagination!
