The beauty and fashion industries have ever-changing and increasingly strange trends and treatments in hopes of bagging everyone’s attention.
But it’s reflected to be too far in left field for the average person to connect or find the charm. These trends manage to slip through the cracks and in some way have influenced some of us that we can achieve timeless beauty by doing something extremely ridiculous.
Some actually works while some doesn’t. There is no lack of ways to experiment with your look. Below are 16 beauty trends you’ve likely have never heard of, until now.
#1. Red Concealer
Youtubers believe that with red concealer, you will be able to hide your dark circles easily. They use red lipstick to conceal their under-eye bags and what’s surprising is that it really works.
#2. Dyed Armpits
Feminists took the body positive movement a notch further by showing their hair pride with neon dyes.
#3. Crystallized Lips
Every girl had a glittery gloss phase but crystallized lips? Well they’re simply big enough to resemble ice chips which will only make you look really cold. How weird is that? Have you ever thought how hard it would be to lip lock with someone with lips like this?
#4. Fish Pedicures
Made popular in Asia, the fishes will have a refreshing snack each time a person places their feet inside the tub. They like to munch on the decaying skin of the feet. There have been so many rave reviews of its effectiveness to make your feet beautiful and supple to touch.
#6. Reverse Tanning
Reverse tanning makes people a shade lighter than their original color. Engineers at NASA created this machine accidentally. If you’ve seen celebrities appear lighter in comparison to their old photos, maybe they’ve used this machine to achieve the reverse tanning look.
#7. Bee Venom
Bee venom has been a very popular beauty ingredient for yours now. It’s been used to plump the lips and have also been added into some skincare products as well. The venom is supposed to reduce inflammation while plumping the skin.
#8. Gold 001
Makeup legend Pat McGrath announced her first product which she showed off at the Prada Spring 2016 show. It’s a gold metallic (magical) powder which was sold out instantly. The product can be used for the lips, they eyelids and anywhere you would like to have gold on.
#9. Groucho Brows
While we believe that strong brows are definitely sexier than a skinny arch, these Groucho brows belong on cartoon characters and not on people.
#10. Glitter Roots
Divert attention away from your skipped color appointments with glitter sprinkled generously along the scalp.
#11. Vampire Facials
Vampire facial is about drawing blood for your arms and putting them in the centrifuge to separate platelets and the plasma. Then the doctors will hand it back to you. With your hands, you apply your blood on your face. Just imagine you’re putting on cream.
Thanks to the Kardashians, waist trainers, also known as corsets, are what every woman uses to help them bounce back after pregnancy and owning the hourglass body shape.
#13. Itty Bitty Bangs
Short, choppy bangs are simply silly. We’re all for bangs but these short ones are just not for us.
#14. Oil Overload
While dewy is the new sexy, greasy hair and oily skin is simply gross. Apply Vaseline in only small doses.
#15. Hangover Makeup
It has now become a thing – dressing your face up to appear like you have no self-control. There are a bunch of tutorials on how to achieve the “don’t touch, talk to me or even look at me” makeup look.
#16. Brow Art
Everybody envies Cara Delevingne’s brow game but it had quieted down because apparently, brow art is the new bold brows with embellishments and temporary colors to their arches.
#17. Burning and cutting hair with a candle (a.k.a. Velaterapia)
Never, ever try this at home. This craze all started in South America and it involves twisting sections of hair then running a lit candle along the hair to burn off the strays. A fire extinguisher is always handy.
