When scrolling through Instagram or Twitter it’s obvious that 2017 is turning out to be a weird year for beauty trends. In about ten years everyone will probably look back on these trends the same way a lot of us look back on our middle school pictures…with a lot of cringing.
1. Wavy eyebrows and lips
The newest craze in viral Twitter and IG makeup has become so popular that Snapchat has made a wavy eyebrow filter.
2. Full face of highlighter
Somehow, YouTubers who participated in this popular “challenge” video ended up looking like glowing goddesses instead of like they just came from the gym.
3. Contouring everywhere
Chest, back, legs, feet. you name the body part and there is probably a tutorial on how to contour it somewhere on the internet.
4. Bizarre applicators
From light bulbs to male contraceptives, the internet has seen all kinds of weird substitutions for applying foundation with a beauty sponge.
5. Lollipop lips
This look made its first appearance on the runway. Smeared lipstick was honestly my worst nightmare in high school… Little did I know I could have been a trend setter.
6. Ear makeup
Aside from contouring every body part, people are now applying makeup to accentuate other parts of their bodies.
7. Fake freckles
After spending a lot of time and foundation covering freckles up, some makeup artists have decided to go to the extra mile and paint them back on.
8. Fur nails
