3 Beauty Trends That Need To Stop Being A Thing ASAP

3 Beauty Trends That Need To Stop Being A Thing ASAP

Some beauty trends are awe-inspiring, eye-catching and deserving of praise. Others...aren't. 

In fact, some beauty trends leave me scratching my head and shrugging my shoulders in wonderment.  Here are three that leave me questioning the sanity of those that rock (I'm using that word VERY loosely) them and cause me to cross my fingers and hope these stop being a thing right now.

1. Neck Contouring

    

 

Neck contouring is the art of, well, contouring your neck.  In theory, I can sort of understand how this practice took off since facial contouring has been all the rage for years and years now. 

But the neck? Really? It is a kind of baffling body part to want to contour. Plus, won't the makeup just rub off all over your collar? Personally, I think that you should save your contouring kit for the purpose that the makeup gods intended—defining your face.

2. Spider Lashes

    

 

There’s quirkily clumpy and then there’s this. Achieving this look requires way too much time, effort and mascara. Plus, it's spiky and messy. And who wants their eyelashes described by either of those words? 

Also, I may not be an eyelash health expert, but there is no way that this trend is good for the well-being of your lashes.

The bottom line: Would I don these for Halloween? Sure. But I think we can all agree that these have no place in everyday life, right?

3. Bubble Nails

  

If you haven't heard or seen bubble nails before, I envy you. In fact, to protect your precious peepers, I opted to just use a photo of an actual bubble instead of showcasing these atrocities (which, by the way, you can see on Instagram by surfing the #bubblenails hashtag if my words of warning are falling on deaf ears). It is much better this way.

Anyway, this trend basically consists of piling layer over layer of acrylic onto your nails in order to create a bump/bubble. And people find this cool, I guess? 

Let's be real. This one is just undeniably weird and should stay in the pages of magazines and on the runway IF it must make an appearance at all.

Here's to hoping that these quit showing up around the beauty sphere!
