We’ve all heard of ChatGPT and AI. So many conversations are sprouting up all over about what AI can do for technology, art, and more. It can also just be fun. As I was brainstorming article topics for this week I thought: why don’t I let ChatGPT write my article for me? I was curious to see what would happen, and if it was at all comparable to what we at Her Campus at UVA write on a weekly basis. I told it to “Write me a 300-word article about beauty trends.”

If you want to know what the AI produced, read below.

“Beauty trends are constantly evolving, with new products, techniques, and styles popping up each season. From bold lips to glowing skin, here are some of the top beauty trends that have been making waves in recent years.

One of the biggest beauty trends in recent years has been a focus on skincare. People are realizing the importance of taking care of their skin and are investing in high-quality products to keep their skin healthy and glowing. Products like serums, essences, and sheet masks have become must-haves in any skincare routine.

Another trend that has been popular for a few years now is the natural makeup look. This look emphasizes enhancing natural beauty rather than covering it up. Neutral eyeshadows, soft blushes, and natural-looking lip colors are all part of this trend. The goal is to create a fresh-faced, radiant look that appears effortless.

Bold, bright lip colors have also been popular in recent years. From bright pinks to deep reds, bold lips can make a statement and add a pop of color to any outfit. Matte formulas have been particularly popular, as they offer long-lasting wear without the need for touch-ups.

Finally, one trend that has been gaining popularity in recent years is sustainability. Many people are looking for beauty products that are eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and ethically sourced. Brands are responding to this trend by creating products with sustainable packaging, using natural ingredients, and being transparent about their production methods.

Overall, beauty trends are always changing and evolving. Whether you prefer natural makeup or bold lip colors, it’s important to stay true to your personal style and use products that make you feel confident and beautiful. With so many new products and techniques being developed each year, the possibilities for self-expression and creativity are endless.”

ChatGPT hit the nail on the head. It lacks the personality a lot of our articles have, but it really makes you think. If I had typed “Write me a funny 300-word article about beauty trends.” would I have gotten the voice I noticed was missing? Try it for yourself!
