Bretman Rock has a hot take — thin eyebrows are in.

"I love my eyebrows, but I am obsessed with the girls with thin eyebrows who look good and rock it," the social media phenomenon tells Yahoo Canada.

"I'm just so jealous. That is such a look and thin brows are coming back. But proceed with caution; I'm not saying do it," he warns.

Rock, a Filipino influencer who has, without exaggeration, taken the internet by storm, recommends trying out a thin eyebrow filter on TikTok (a platform in which he's collected more than 15.3 million followers) before committing to the controversial trend.

"You don't want to be like my aunties today who are like, 'Girl, don't do it. We all did it in the 2000s and we're all growing it back now.' But now they're happy about it 'cause it's back. But if it doesn't come back in 10 years, was it really ever a trend?"

Rock and I are discussing thin eyebrows, among the resurgence of other Y2K beauty trends, because the 24-year-old recently teamed up with Paris Hilton, the "Y2K queen herself," for Klarna's "That's smoooth" campaign.

In a survey, Klarna, a shopping and payments service, found that 20 per cent of respondents noticed a revival of thin eyebrows in the last six months, alongside Y2K beauty trends like high-shine lipgloss, glitter eyeshadow and visible lip liner.

Regarding visible lip liner, it's a "keep, period" for Rock. The Hawaii-based content creator adds frosted lids, butterfly clips and baby tees to his list of Y2K beauty comebacks.

As for modern-day staples, the "You're That Bitch: & Other Cute Lessons About Being Unapologetically Yourself author calls Mario Badescu's Cleansing Oil one of his must-have products.

"As a makeup user, I always have to have an oil cleanser on deck because I'm a double cleansing girl," he tells Yahoo Canada.

"The Mario Badescu Cleansing Oil is my favourite, and I go through it like it's water."

Sharing his other beauty staples, Rock calls sleep his "priceless" hack and recommends investing in a face steamer.

"I think everyone could benefit from a face steamer," he says. "They're really cute and chic. You can use it for anything. Your armpits, face, when you're popping pimples and doing your skincare."

One top-rated pick? Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare's Pro Facial Steamer, which is available in four payments of $52 with Klarna on Sephora.
