Another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, this time I’m sharing the top ten makeup trends and/or tutorials that I’m sick of.
Top Ten Beauty Trends/Tutorials I’m Over
Kylie Jenner Lip Tutorial – Can we stop with her lips already??? Does there really have to be another kylie jenner lip tutorial when there are already sooooo many out there? I’m not really a fan of the exaggerated and overdrawn lips so this never appealed to me.
Kylie Jenner Inspired Look – Once again, there are just way too many of these tutorials like this out there and it seems like more pop up by the minute. I don’t even follow that many beauty vloggers on youtube and I swear I see at least one Kylie-inspired look once a week.
Strobing/Highlight – Strobing is the latest new trend in beauty, supposedly the new contour (I doubt it). It’s basically highlighting your face but to the extreme. I do actually like the way some highlighter looks, it can look very pretty, but if your face is shimmery everywhere and it looks like Tinker Bell sneezed on your face, then maybe you overdid it. I don’t ever want to hear ‘highlight in fleek’ ever again…
How To Contour – I admit that I don’t know how to contour, I think. I mean, I apply the contour shades where I should, but I still look like me. Not like those amazing contour transformations I always see on Pinterest. (I’m kind of disappointed actually) I don’t think contour is going away any time soon, but I am tired of all the new ‘how to contour’ videos.
Liquid Lipsticks – I love a glossy lip. I love the feeling of gloss (or some sort of creamy lip product) on my lips. I do have a few liquid lipsticks that aren’t too bad, but some that I’ve seen look like they have spackel on their lips instead of lipstick. Lipstick shouldn’t crack in my opinion. And am I the only one that doesn’t care if my lipstick last 12 hours? I can barely stand to have lipstick on for a few hours without having the urge to either remove or reapply, I can’t imagine leaving it on that long. I don’t even want to know how kissing would be like wearing liquid lipstick… Nothing beats a glossy/creamy lip for me.
Matte, Matte, Matte! – I actually am a fan of some matte products, specifically eyeshadow and blush. I like shimmery products too but I prefer mattes. But everything matte is a trend lately and I’m not a big fan. I prefer a good mix of matte/shimmery/dewy.
Fake eyelashes – Agh, fake eyelashes is a pet peeve of mine. I think they look soooo pretty, but I would never want to wear them every day or often. Even when I try makeup tutorials, it just doesn’t look the same without fake eyelashes. I love beauty vloggers that don’t use fake eyelashes that often because it just looks more…natural.
Faded eyebrows – I don’t like when beauty gurus say that eyebrows that aren’t faded out at the inner corners don’t look natural. Newsflash: neither does the super carved/straight edge look! I do see some that have a natural looking fade that looks really pretty, but I’ve seen some where it basically looks like they took an eraser to the inner corners and then forget to keep erasing…
Too much bronzer – Some bronzer is good, it can really transform your face (in a good way). But too much bronzer can just look ridiculous… same goes for blush
3D Fiber Eyelashes – I wish my eyelashes were longer and thicker and I’m still on the hunt for a good mascara, but I don’t want them to look like I have spiders around my eyes….
Are you tired of any of these trends/tutorials too? Anything else you’re sick of?
