It’s crazy to me how beauty trends constantly evolve and change, and how our own tastes for those trends change!
For example, I remember when accent nails first hit the scene and thinking that it was a little odd to have a single nail with a different color, but eventually I came around to liking it and rocking it all the time. This was 2013 or 2014?
Anywho, now, years later, I much prefer to have a more traditional mani with just a single color across all my fingers. No more accent nails for me (for now, at least).
Some other trends within the last few years that I tried, in no particular order…
- Bold brows — I even went through an intense phase where I did a complicated routine with carved out brows, OMG!
- Nose contouring — I did this for a while and liked how it looked in pictures, but then I stopped doing it when I felt like I *had* to do it every day to just step out of the house. I think that feeling like I needed to correct how my nose looked made me perceive that there was something wrong with my features, and I didn’t think that was healthy for me mentally in the long term. So I stopped.
- Overdrawn lips — Again, I like how this looked in pictures. In real life though, I think it might’ve just looked like I couldn’t figure out where my real lip line was. LOL! At the time I thought it was cute, though.
- Intense bronzer — Man, I wore so much circa 2014!
How about you? What are some beauty trends from the last few years that you’ve tried? Do you still like them?
