This was definitely the year of emerging new beauty trends.  In 2017, beauty influencers set the boundaries of what should be accepted as beautiful on the internet.  As much as I hope that these trends will go away in 2018, I have a feeling that they are just getting started.  Here are some of the worst beauty trends of 2017.

TIP: If you don’t have time to read this entire post right now, pin it for later!

Nose hair extensions, rainbow armpit hair, squiggle brow, squiggle lips and lollipop lips are some of the worst viral beauty trends around...

10. Black Highlighter

To be fair, this trend was started around Halloween, with the release of Jeffree Star’s Onyx Ice, and was meant to be part of costume makeup.  However, the people of the internet decided they liked it and took it to the next level.

    • Thank you for the kind words! I’m glad you liked the post! I totally agree… I almost feel like people do some of these looks for views… but I could be wrong 🙂

    Just wanted to comment in on the arm pit hair….There isn’t a field guide for feminism circulating that mandates that everyone has to stop shaving their body hair. How is this something people actually believe? If it so happens you don’t want to shave your body hair (because it’s your body and your choice), of course feminism welcomes you with open arms — just as it does hetero women who are quote-unquote “girly” and like to get glammed up. It should be mentioned, though, that the idea of shaving as “girly” is kind of ludicrous. Who decided having hair wasn’t feminine? Psh. Again, equal rights for everyone have nothing to do with how you look, what your preferences are, who you find attractive, or anything else in that vein. It’s about equality so I don’t think it has anything to do with feminism but everything to do with attention.
