Fashion and makeup keeps on changing direction like waves in an ocean and we keep rowing our boats per its mercy. Tiktok has been the hub of reigniting past trends and introducing new ones when it comes to makeup. But some of them might just be the worst makeup trends, we have come across.
People have used and supported some crazy ideas, especially during the pandemic, for fun. However, now that we are out and about more often we need to let go of someone of the trends that started off for a couple of likes by influencers and ended up being taken serious by too many people.
Today, we bring you the 5 worst makeup trends that we just need to cancel in 2022. There’s no point passing them down each generation because they truly and wholeheartedly – SUCK!
1. Excessive Foundation
This trend started from Tiktok and soon was graced as a hail mary in times of boredom as it got viral on Instagram and Youtube as well. Some people even went on to use half a bottle of their foundation in one session. This ends up leaving your face looking nice for a little bit but mostly your face is somewhat cakey with plastic feel to it. While excessive foundation won’t cause you too much damage but it will surely clog your pores and affects your skin.
2. Sunscreen Contouring
It all began with the desire to have a natural contour. People were trying to discover many things while being bored out of their minds in the past 2-3 years, after all. However, doctors have warned against sunscreen contouring. Using SPF on the parts of our face where we usually have to contour artificially does end up leaving a natural tan temporarily by standing in the sun for a bit. When did skin burns get cool? Plus once those tan lines fade away we are left with permanent skin damage at later ages which will not be easy to reverse.
3. Teeth Filing
Unless you’re a dentist, teeth filing is not yours to do as you please. The trend got quick popularity on tiktok and many people tried it to even out their teeth. Because what will happen if we didn’t have perfectly aligned teeth, right!? Wrong. Dentists soon started warning people to stop it because filing our own teeth without any education on it can have us damage our enamel badly.
4. Very Thin Eyebrows
Y2K was the time for thin eyebrows and now that all of a sudden nostalgia is in fashion – we are trying to bring back all the year 2000’s trends. But thin eyebrows? Come on. Everyone took a sigh of relief when they went out of fashion and now all of a sudden we all want it back. Just – NO.
5. Clumpy Mascara
If you are still at the chunky spider leg mascara also known as clumpy mascara, maybe it’s time to ditch your mascara game altogether. Either be sleek af or just go with an eyeliner only. No one likes to see chunky eyelashes. It kind of feels like eye gunk, to be honest, which is not at all attractive or alluring.
Worst Makeup Trends and Our Conclusion
We don’t have an issue with makeup – no. We do, however, take offense in trends that are unhealthy or too unrealistic. Imagine waxing your eyebrows off just to make thin ones with a pencil. Why go through so much pain? Thick eyebrows are game and we are here for them whether filled or not.
Likewise, no need to go find solutions for problems that don’t matter. So what if your teeth are not in a perfect alignment – that’s what your dentist is for. The person went to Medical school so you could file your own teeth only to an irreparable amount of damage? That just doesn’t make sense. Does it?
Makeup should be fun and safe, that’s all we want and support.
