Make-up artist Sofie Petersen posted a pic of “curly eyelashes” on Instagram, and people online are totally freaking out.
We’ve seen the egg beauty blender, the Christmas-themed glitter boobs, even the absurd overgrown nostril hair trend. Now, the most recent bizarre beauty trend to take the internet by storm is puberty eyelashes, or what the beauty gurus are calling “curly eyelashes.” But we believe “puberty” eyelashes is a better term for the trend because the eyelashes will remind you of, you know – Certain lower regions.
Responses to the trend have been, as one would expect, quite cold. -make-up artist Sofie Petersen started the viral trend on social media platform Instagram, and her followers haven’t totally been accepting.
Petersen posted a photo to the image sharing website of the curly eyelashes, stating: Puberty isn’t over.
At least the -make-up artist is self-aware about her looks and can recognize just how wacky the whole thing is. Maybe she uploaded the photo only for the shock factor of it all.
Despite her motivations, her followers were not interested in seeing the image pop up on their feeds. Many took to the comments section to let her know just how much they disliked the new trend.

Instagram user Smoochypants hilariously but shortly commented: Thanks, I hate it! Another user, Shmoodring added: I saw this go viral on a Facebook meme and even though it had a dumb ass caption I was like, “Yes! I know those eye pubes!” Some, though, were curious about what a whole face of -make-up would look like, as Gemgirl1962 said: I’d like to see how the entire face looks with it. Others chimed in with somewhat pointed comments: That’s gross, pubic hair transplant, and even, does it hurt?
This is not the first time Petersen has created and shared an absurd trend or eye make-up look such as this one.
In the past, she has caused controversy across the internet with her “out-of-the-box” and ludicrous -make-up trends. She has an extensive history of strange trends, such as the infamous “lettuce lids,” “lentil lashes,” and “liquid lashes.” During an interview with Dazed Magazine, Petersen revealed that her atypical approach to -make-up comes out of a desire to “show emotions, tell stories, and joke around.”
She told the magazine, “I want people to feel something when they see my beauty looks. Whether it’s inspired or disgusted. I want to show emotions and tell stories and joke around. I like that my Instagram is a place that can contain different expressions.”
Peterson claimed that her upbringing in a traditional Danish suburb is what lead her to experiment with her -make-up. “I ended up feeling like there were expectations to the way I should look and it ended in mental problems and shallow confidence,” she said.
Some people Just Try TOO Hard To Be Different — They Look Like PUBES for Godsakes
“Make-up got to be my therapy when I felt down. I finally approached a point where I just wanted to be 100% myself, even if it made me stand out.” And stand out, she does.
