Beauty Trends Not Worth The Hype 2017
To each their own but these are some beauty trends that are so not worth the hype for 2017.
I’ve been up close and personal with lash extensions for many years now. Starting in beauty school where I watched all my classmates practice on each other. “It’s a great money maker Monet, you should take a class…” I watched one-by-one as each girl got them. They loved them, were annoyed by how they looked a week later, got them off, lost half their eye lashes then proceeded to do it again to cover up their bald lash line. Not for me. Can we please be done with them already?!
You know the ones… boxy, harsh and stencil-ish. There’s a couple beauty gurus who totally pull them off but these brows require a certain level of glam throughout your makeup look to pull it all together. Unless you’re rocking a rainbow glitter eye on the daily, chances are these brows aren’t for you. Embracing and enhancing your natural shape will always be more flattering. To assume everyone is going to look good with the same stencil brows on their face is crazy-talk. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those “What were you thinking Mom?!” trends.
This one’s for my everyday girls, not to say that you’re not doing it right but… Let’s save contouring for the professionals and the self-taught professionals. This one can just go SO wrong and in most cases do more harm than good. Contouring can go from chiseled and chic to sallow and dirty reeeal quick. Maybe best to ditch the contour and go with round and youthful on this one??
If you’re guilty of any of these trends that I have deemed ‘not worth the hype’ then good for you! Beauty and makeup is too much fun not to experiment with! Keep playing and having fun but most of all remember to love what’s under the makeup first <3
