Soap brows have taken over the Internet, and we aren’t complaining. This effortlessly natural make-up look is in, and the days of filling in our brows are long gone. The trend of the soap brow consists of a brushed, slicked-up brow with a soft final touch.
Instead of using a brow gel, this look can be obtained by using a bar of soap and a spoolie to shape and keep your brows in place. Before trying this trend, know that you can’t just use any soap and should use soap with glycerin. Additionally, brush directly onto your brows with the spoolie and use a transparent soap to avoid residue.

Are you ready for the ultimate secret to glowing skin? Slugging is the newest trick to achieving dewy, moisturized, healthy, and clear skin. And, to answer your question… no, it doesn’t have anything to do with actual slugs.
Slugging is done by using a drop of Aquaphor and rubbing it into your skin like you would with a moisturizer. Slugging is done at night and should be the very last step of your nighttime routine. The ultimate benefit is optimal hydration, which in return creates a dewy glow. The Aquaphor acts as a barrier to lock in hydration, and the petrolatum used is unlikely to cause clogged pores.
However, if you are acne-prone and have oily skin, you may want to be careful of this trend, as it could cause a breakout.
Who’s ready to up their beauty game? We know we are! These five Instagram-famous beauty trends are definitely worth the hype we’ve seen on the Internet. Don’t just take our word for it, though; try it yourself and let us know about your experience!
