5 Beauty/Instagram Bandwagons I Can’t Get On Board With

If you’ve searched anything beauty on instagram lately you’ve probably seen some of the 2017 trends that are all the rage right now. Some are more likeable than others, and some are plain outrageous! Keep in mind that I’m not saying you shouldn’t try these if you love them or that they are horrible, they’re just too much for me!

#1 Squiggle BrowsΒ Not for me! I can’t think of a single place that this would be an appropriate look for me. I’m not a runway model or super glam at makeup so I’m going to pass on Squiggly Brows. I’m really liking the look of Braided brows though!

#2 Squiggle LipsΒ Absolutely not (for me). I would feel like I belong in Alice in Wonderland or a Batman comic with squiggle lips! If you love it though, make sure to rock it like Promise Tamang!

#3 Silicone Blending Sponges I can’t see how these sponges would work well. I’ve read a few good website reviews of some silicone sponges, but I haven’t read a single blogger review that was positive. I trust blogger reviews more than reviews that can be approved or disapproved by a brand website, so I’m saying no to this one.

#4 Lollipop Lips This one seems to have (thankfully) run it’s course already in early 2017. I hate it when my lipstick smudges, and wearing this look in public would make me entirely uncomfortable.

#5 Just Snogged Lips I guess I just dislike every lip trend that’s come out this year that happens to be a little strange. Apparently the Fall/Winter trend is the recently kissed look, with messy lipstick and faded edges. IΒ always make sure my lipstick is transfer proof so I am not a fan of this look. I kinda love those brushed up eyebrows though!

What trends are you loving or hating right now!?

    1. Haha! I don’t have a problem with a regular blending sponge, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it πŸ˜† The silicone sponge isn’t the worst trend I’ve seen so I might give it a chance, but I’d never try squiggle brows!


  1. Instagram is full of weird and wacky stuff. Those squiggly brows always remind me of that emoji that’s either really puzzled or about to throw up! xx

  2. These are all terrible!! I’m getting tired of seeing purple highlights. I’ve only ever seen ONE person walking around with purple highlight in my life and it was in NYC. Normal people don’t want to go to work with purple cheekbones. xo J

  3. Sometimes I have ‘lollipop lips’ the morning after a night out when I forgot to take my lipstick off πŸ˜‚ they’re so bad! It’s like they’re just trying to see what crap people will buy into. I saw a tutorial of a girl cutting up her Yeezys and using the fabric to apply her foundation the other day, for real ? πŸ˜‚
