Warning: don’t try this at home.
The brave women at Buzzfeed decided to take on the glitter eyebrow trend Miley Cyrus has been sporting recently and their experiment had very disturbing results: The eyelash glue they used to attach loose glitter to the hairs ate their eyebrows. Like, ate them off their faces. It’s like a horror movie, but one in which the thing being murdered is facial hair. And pride.
Like any truly touching film, the clip has an arc that starts with the women being skeptical about the look, getting some joy out of shocking their co-workers (one reaction: “Why? Why?”), accepting the fun vibe of the sparkly arches, and then the twist comes in the third act, when they realize that the shiny flecks are too well-cemented onto their skin for easy removal. One tester has to go to the emergency room while another uses acetone to get hers off. In other words, never EVER use eyelash glue on your eyebrows, folks. And perhaps skip the glitter brow trend altogether. It’s just not worth walking around eyebrow-less afterwards.
Watch below, but cover your brows. You don’t want them to be scarred for life by what you’re about to see.
