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 Brows 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 Lips 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. I 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!?

      Haha!! You’re braver than I am, I’d be scared of the doorbell ringing 😂

    These trends are ok on the catwalk or on instagram but for normal people in normal situations it just looks like your really bad at makeup!!

    • September 21, 2017 / 11:28 am

      Haha I completely agree! I like trends for normal people 😄

    • September 15, 2017 / 10:47 am

      Haha I haven’t met someone who likes wavy eyebrows yet!

    Sometimes I have ‘lollipop lips’ the morning after a night out when I forgot to take my lipstick off 😂 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 ? 😂

      Haha! But never intentionally I hope😄 people will do such strange things with makeup sometimes! 😆😆

    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

    All of these are kind of horrendous! It’s the first time I’ve heard of the lollipop lips look, and like you said, it just looks like you smeared lipstick all over your face. No thanks!

    • September 11, 2017 / 10:52 am

      It looks sooo bad, I would never wear lollipop lips! Thanks for commenting ☺

    I just read about those ‘wavy brows’ trend. It’s so weird!! 😂 trends come and go so fast i can barely keep up. Some I like, and others like this are just strange 😅

    • September 11, 2017 / 10:50 am

      How do people even come up with these trends!? I’ve seen them all over Instagram and it’s baffling! Thanks for reading Angela!

    I literally don’t understand the squiggle brows.

    • September 10, 2017 / 4:17 pm

      It’s so strange, such a baffling trend!

    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

    • September 10, 2017 / 12:25 pm

      😵haha! I see what you mean! People come up with the strangest things 😂

    80% of all IG trend are so weird I swear hahaha 😀 I have the original silisponge, and it’s okay but no way as amazing as some of those IG/YT people make it seem

      Haha! I don’t have a problem with a regular blending sponge, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it 😆 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!
