Shrek brows are now apparently a thing and we have so many questions

Keeley Ryan

We’re not too sure if this one’ll catch on.

So far this year, there’s shoe brows, fishtail brows, and let’s not forget pomp-pom brows – just to name a few.

But the latest look may just top them all.

Introducing…Shrek brows.

Audrey Addams, a Sydney-based makeup artist, is the person behind the latest kind of brow trend.

She shared some photos of one of her more recent designs on Twitter, where it soon went viral for its references to the DreamWorks character.

At a first glance, the brows seem to be a pair of braided green vines.

But if you look a little closer, you can see two Shreks lying on their sides – each with their heads propped up onto their arms.


She explained to Teen Vogue that Shrek had become a running joke among her and her friends – and that she was inspired to create the design to make them laugh.

She said:

“Shrek has been a running joke in my group of friends for a few years now, and I do really love both the movies and the memes.

“It’s gotten to the point where even my birthday party was Shrek themed and we all went to see Shrek the Musical together.

“I started doing some Shrek makeup looks a while ago in between doing my more serious looks just to make my friends laugh and I keep wanting to outdo myself so they’ve progressively become more and more ridiculous.”

The original Twitter post has since gotten almost 10,000 retweets and 31,000 likes, so people are definitely all for it.

We’re just not sure we’d be able to pull this one off.
