What Is Up With This Weird Trend Of Putting Makeup On Your Thighs?

It seems everytime I turn around there’s some weird ass trend evolving, usually on Instagram or having to do with selfies.

I just discovered the “thigh brow” one—which is the line that forms above your thighs from your skin folding over your thighs when you sit, kneel or bend over.

It’s supposed to be more “body positive” than the thigh gap, because every girl has it whereas thigh gaps are only seen on woman of a certain body shape.

There’s a name for nearly every damn aspect of a woman’s body.

Anyways, I have stumbled upon this other odd trend that seems to be giving the term “thigh brow” a whole new meaning: some women have taken to applying a full “face” of makeup to their thighs, complete with contouring and false eyelashes.

It’s not exactly a new thing either—women were doing this last year.

Say hello to my thighs. Am i mutating? Lolz! #face #art #thighface

Granted, their makeup skills are still pretty impressive, and I guess it could be a good way to practise new techniques and colours and whatnot without having to wash and rewash your face after every f*ckup.

But it’s still strange.

This trend doesn’t have a specific name yet, although some are hashtagging it with #thighface or #thighmakeup, but apparently it might be even more of a thing in 2017.

If I were to attempt it, mine would end up looking more like this:
