Every season we see different beauty trends come and go. You see people bravely trying to rock certain looks on the street, sometimes successfully, and sometimes not so successfully. Do you enjoy trying new beauty trends? Are there some trends that you wish would go away? Remember in the 90’s the look of a nude lip with a dark brown lip liner? That was not a good look on anyone, yet people wore it proudly for many years. Here are some other trends in beauty that need to take a hike for good.
Over plucked Brows
Here’s the deal, over plucking your brows makes you look older. Plus, when you over pluck or wax them too much, eventually they will stop grow back. Then you have to pencil them in everyday for the rest of your life or risk looking brow less.
This look is the excessively smoky eyes, with bare skin and even barer lips usually on extremely thin women, made famous by Kate Moss. It’s not attractive. There is nothing attractive about people who do heroin. We are appalled that an entire beauty trend was named after their look.
Do we really need to have 3-D decals, and sparkly glitter with rhinestones upon rhinestones all over our nails? Especially for an adult? How much of a statement do you need to make with your nails? It’s just too much. Let’s go back to classic reds, pinks, mauves or even a nice “griege”. Or just buff your nails to a healthy high shine, and move on. Nails that are long enough for that much embellishment must get in the way of daily life!
This doesn’t work in real life. You can absolutely see where people attempt to contour with the variety of ready-made palettes on the market. Strong contour is meant for people getting their photograph professionally taken or for night time events where lighting is dimmer. Unless you are walking the red carpet, or getting some editorial work done we suggest easing up on the contouring.
Pink, Purple, or Turquoise Hair Color
Bright, rainbow or other unnatural colored hair won’t work in the corporate world. This is not a look that says professional or well put together so unless you are looking for a lot of attention it is probably best to avoid the bright, crazy hair colors.
Over Spray Tanned
You feel thinner when tan, right? That’s the idea, but many people aren’t getting spray tanned with the right tones and often end up looking “orangey” or too sallow. It’s not complimentary, a more natural skin tone will look better with your makeup, clothing, and hair color. If you are a fair, then own it and stop the overdone spray tanning.
Overdone Cat Eye
Sure a cat eye can be fun for a nighttime look. A small, delicate flick looks cute for daytime also. However, a thick line of black liquid liner is very heavy for day and can look aging. We recommend a more soft color like a nice shimmery brown, with a tiny flick for day. Leave the seriously feline eye for a night out.
