Every year there are tons of articles posted about “this year’s beauty trends”. Quite frankly, I don’t know whether they are legitimately considered trends or if they are just fun to look at for a quick read. I understand lip colors, eyeliner tricks or even colored mascara. It can be awesome to switch up your look by changing something small about it or buying a cool new product that is being featured in so many articles. But sometimes there are these “beauty trends” that don’t make much sense to me. For example, one big thing I’ve seen mentioned in a few articles is gold leaf in your hair.
It looks awesome for editorials, and can absolutely spice up a runway show, don’t get me wrong! But when it comes to reality, how practical could this be? Another article I recently read was about pom-pom nails. You read that right, actual pom-poms glued to your finger nails.Once again,this could look crazy awesome for an editorial but when it comes to reality, how is this practical?! You can’t wash your hands, shower, or as the article mentioned, eat Cheetos with these things. Although these “trends” seem absolutely insane to me, it’s one of the reasons I love the beauty/fashion world so much. No matter how ridiculous something may seem, editorials do it anyway and draw attention. There are thousands of crazy beauty trends being talked about every day, and while they may not seem practical they are seriously fun to look at.
