23 Weird Beauty Trends From 2017 That Sent Me To An Early Grave
15 December 2017, 15:45
Please delete these from the internet. Thank you.
1) Nose Hair Extensions
I have so many follow up questions about this: 1) What even? 2) Why? 3) How do you even get to the point where you think 'Let me stick fake eyelashes up my nostrils' is a good idea? 4) Do you need help? While I'm 95% sure this was a joke, one can never really be sure with the beauty community on Instagram.
2) Christmas Nose Hair Extensions
Same as above x 1,000,000. Now you're just wasting eyelashes for those in need. I honestly wholeheartedly can't. This has ruined Christmas. Someone call the police.
3) Feather Brows
2017 was truly the year of the ironic eyebrow trend that actually ended up going viral anyway. Case in point: Feather brows. This is fine... if you're lucky enough to have luxurious, thick and striking eyebrows. What about the rest of us who are working with nothing? 0/10, would not attempt.
note to self: when u make a joke about starting a funny brow trend people will take it seriously and.... well. start the trend anyways THANK YOU for all the love and hate on my last pic! i think we should call this #featherbrows so if you actually want to recreate this, pls use the hashtag and tag me in the picture💘 skin: @maccosmetics strobe cream, face&body foundation c1, pro longwear concealer in NC15, fix+ highlight: @maccosmetics Double Gleam brows: glue stick + @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown eyeshadows: @maccosmetics Texture & Coppering lashes: @ardell_lashes Wispies lips: @lipsicosmetics Leros + clear lip gloss
4) Crown Brows
If this was a marketing ploy by Netflix to promote season two of the critically acclaimed series The Crown, then it would have been genius. Unfortunately, it was not. It's a no from me.
5) Glitter Boobs
Glitter boobs - or 'Disco Tits' as they're more affectionally known - were created by goddesses of glitter, The Gypsy Shrine. Apparently they were big at Coachella, which makes perfect sense (everyone is glamorous, everyone is extra, weather is too hot so you're probs not wearing a top anyway...) but for a cold and rainy UK festival? Absolutely fucking not.
6) Glitter Bum
Ahhh, Disco Tits' younger, less sophisticated sister Glitter Bum... It sounds like a nightmare, it looks like a nightmare and I do NOT even want to think about the aftermath of going full Glitter Bum at Glasto. We ALL know what happens in this situation with sand... I'll say no more.
7) Barbed Eyebrows
I'm breaking out in a sweat just looking at it. Honestly, who has the time and the patience?
8) Squiggle Brows
I didn't spend 3 years at eyebrow school for the internet to accept this as a genuine look. Eyebrows are hereby officially CANCELLED.
9) Eyebrow Wigs
You know what, I'm not mad about these at all. They're actually genius. Weird, but genius. Eyebrows are officially un-cancelled again.
10) Terrarium Eyeshadow
Is it pretty? Yes. Is it practical? Not in the slightest. Does it have the potential to blind you for the rest of your life? Yes. Is it worth the risk? I would sayyyyyy... no, probably?
🌿GIPSOFILA🌿 - my ultimate favourite flower of all time, so delicate and pretty. I am really happy with how this turned out and I hope you all like it too! For some reason it slightly makes me think of Twilight breaking dawn when Bella and Edward get married in the woods🖤 • I've been told by people that @dsamakeup has done a beautiful creation like this also - please make sure to go and check hers out 🖤
11) Using hardboiled eggs as beauty blenders.
Ahhhhh, the year of using whatever you can get your hands on as a beauty blender. Hard boiled eggs, though? Get out of my house right now.
EGG BLENDING SPONGE I have seen loads of beauty hacks using different things as blending sponge like 🍅, kitchen scourer, pads even condoms (I would have loved to try that but I would have to answer loads of questions from hubby lol) so I took it a notch by using a HARD BOILED EGG 🍳 Sienna had a filled day laughing so hard she said 'oh Mummy you are crazy and I love it' lol. Well anyway did it work YES it did, would I use it again hmmmm MAYBE . Would you try this hack? Yes or No. What you think? Let me know what other Instagram Beauty Hack you have tried and it actually worked for you. Do enjoy the video.

12) Fidget Spinners as beauty blenders
I'll never forgive James Charles for this. Delete it.
13) Hair Nails
I don't know what's worse... the hair on the nails or the terrifying faces?! HELP. ME.
Many people told me i should delete those my photos before becoming a new trend 😂 pic.twitter.com/NZ7FD1dFDM— Dain Yoon (@designdain) September 10, 2017
14) Squiggle Lips
When Kylie Jenner invented lips in 2016, she dreamed of a world where men and women alike could over-lined their lips in an orderly and polite fashion. This? It's an abomination. But hey, if you wanna go out looking like the Nickelodeon logo then be my guest.
15) Vagina Nails
Because nothing screams "THIS PUSSY GRABS BACK" like a lil' bit of subtle vagina nail art on your ring finger.
16) Tampon Nails
If the vagina nail wasn't enough for you, then behold the tampon nail.
17) Glitter Tongue
List of places where it's ok to put glitter: Your boobs, your arms, your hair, your nails, your legs... List of places where real life qualified doctors advise you NOT to put glitter: Literally inside your mouth. This one actually might send you to an early grave.
18) Nipple Nails
We've all got 'em, I guess...
19) Bloody Brows

20) Lollipop Lips
MAC! How could you do this? Why would you unleash this into the world?
21) Using a condom as a beauty blender
I actually want to start a fight with someone over this.
