6 makeup looks that are going out of style: Beauty trends over the past few decades have been interesting. From the makeup looks to the hairstyles, the beauty world has seen a drastic change. In the 80s, you weren’t on trend with beauty unless your perm was big enough to stop traffic and you were covered in Love’s Baby Soft. In the ’90s, grunge was in, which meant pencil-thin brows, stringy hair, and lots of dark lipstick. The 2000s were a more girly, pop-princess phase for beauty. Then we hit 2010. Every year we think that this year will be the one without any horrid moments or mistakes that have us looking back and saying: “What were we thinking?” And yet, here we are. What’s different about 2017 is that the runways and red carpets don’t solely dictate beauty trends anymore, although they’re obviously still important. Beauty bloggers with millions of followers on YouTube and Instagram massively influence the beauty world–sometimes shocking rather than inspiring. In 2017, many of the “beauty trends” weren’t really trends at all—they were simply out-there; ideas about how to do makeup, hair, and nails that bloggers knew had viral potential. We can’t think of a person who wouldn’t click on a link that says, “Nose Hair Extension Tutorial” out of pure curiosity. Most of the beauty trends of 2017 that had us talking were downright strange. These personalized healthcare beauty trends from 2017 make us thankful for Mama’s classic beauty advice. We’re happy to say adieu to these beauty blunders in 2017.
Also known as galaxy makeup, holographic makeup is all about flaunting iridescent shades of makeup on your face. The shades vary between green and purple depending on where the light is coming from. Naturally, there are oodles of glitter, shiny highlighters, and pearlescent lipsticks all over your face. Depending on the position of the light, the color of the makeup varies, usually between green and purple. Result? A surprising make-up that gives style and personality to our make-up … and that surfs the multi-colored trend, in the same spirit as the “unicorn” madness!
Nostril hair extensions
This trend started as a joke gone too far. They are most likely false eyelashes formed into a circle and stuck at the brink of each of her nostrils. They went viral. Of course, they did. While you read this post here, there are 124 hits for #NoseHairExtensions on Instagram. We’re all here together, now reading a thing titled “Nostril Hair Extensions Are the Newest Instagram Thing” and honestly, please burn it all down for personalized healthcare!
Believe it or not, contouring isn’t a new trend at all. French says, “Make-up artists have skillfully used contouring since the early days of Hollywood. It can subtlety sculpt a face to add depth & drama.” It’s the overdoing part that seems to be a trend that’s thankfully disappearing.
Kylie Jenner may have introduced the overdrawing lip technique to a whole new generation, but believe us when we tell you: it’s an old-school trick. As far back as the 1920s and through the decades that followed, ladies were using liner pencils to create the illusion of fuller lips. Love your natural lips and define them as your best feature on the face.
This past year has been Hunger Games; like the pursuit of which hair color technique will be the coolest, brightest, splashiest way to amp up your look. And with the end of 2015 approaching, we think we’ve finally found a winner. But before you deem glittery roots strictly appropriate for dance recitals or next year’s 90’s-themed Halloween party, the trend urges you to reconsider. The trick to its glittery greatness isn’t so much dunking that you load a sparkle onto your head and call it a day. It’s a precise application directly on the roots and spreads the glitter no more than an inch away from your part. Mix a chunky style of the glitter of your choice.
Beauty bloggers and make-up artists have been showcasing “squiggle” eyebrows with their brows shaped in wavy lines, and fans aren’t sure what to make of it. The new trend has seen many influencers outline their curvy brows using bright colors to accentuate the unusual shape. A number of Instagrammers have tried to attempt the look, with many pairing the look with bright eyeshadow shades and colorful lips.
All these personalized healthcare makeup trends have been quite popular for their weirdness in 2017 but it’s high time they need to die. What do you think about it? Let us know if we missed any of your ‘not-so-favourite’ trends!
