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?
