Bold but bizarre
Just when you think that make-up trends cannot get wackier than what you’ve seen, it goes to the next level. We bring to you trends that are ruling the Instagram world, in the most bizarre way ever.
While most of you must be experts at braiding your hair into a nice fishtail, do you have any idea about styling brows as one? Edgy and bold, the trend is about splitting the eyebrow tail into two agelic tips, giving it the look of fish fins. The ‘sliced’ edge is created with clever concealing while the rest of it is created with brow gels and pencils. Your thoughts?
Halo brows or reverse unibrows was first created by a 16-year old make-up enthusiast, Hannah Lyne, as a random experiment. Since then Instagram is flooded with pictures of people sporting it, with big beauty bloggers like Huda Khattan trying it. It’s basically a halo that spans from one brow to another. Not sure if any one of us will practically be able to wear it, it’s interesting to see the creativity people bring in the usual make-up rituals.
Make-up is not only about accentuating natural beauty, it also is a creative outlet for many. Sofie Petersen, an aspiring make-up artist from Denmark, once created crown eyebrows and little did she know that her experiment would become a trend. Use vaseline to spike the eyebrow up in crown points and accessorise each accent point with a stone. No real crown needed to feel like a queen!
This trend seems to be a special shoutout to the dentists of the country! With nail extentions carved and designed in the shape of teeth, it’s one of the most bizarre (and if we can say ugly!) nail art we have seen. But as they say that the internet can make anyone a star and anything a trend, we regret being a part of the era in which this trend originated. However the artist balled us over by giving a tiny cavity, how real it looks now!
Spiral nails are created with a special technique which involves moulding arcylic around any straw-like object to get a look like that of a spiral. While we cannot decide if it looks appealing or not, we leave it to you to decide if ever it makes it to your list of must-try trends.
Before anything else, we would like to know how to eat with such extensions on? Apart from the fact that it looks a bit scary, these extentions seem difficult to manage. Taking creativity to another level, the nails in this trend are painted like that of a doll’s face, completing its look by adding long strands of hair. Is it just us or is it definitely creepy?
Seriously? Isn’t this trend hurting animal right activists? Preserving scorpions for a biology experiment is something we’re aware of but putting one in a nail (as per the recent trend) is obnoxious, to say the least. Not commenting further, we leave with a question if you ever want to try it?
