Glitter roots took Instagram by storm, and even celebrities like Bella Throne were all over it. But the overload was just not cute — and never mind the lengthy shampooing sessions that were involved.
Several NYFW shows introduced colored lobes as part of their runway beauty looks. While they tried to convince us that taking the time out to apply metallic eyeshadow and paint glitter on our ears was a good idea, we weren't convinced.
Beautiful, false lashes will (probably) never die in the beauty world. On the other hand, fake freckles may have a slower run. This trend hit social media with full force after many bloggers, such as James Charles (aka the first male CoverGirl) began utilizing eyeliners, facial stickers, and eyebrow pencils to mimic the look of freckles. Those born with freckles have to be very cautious with their skincare, and many spoke out on social media stating they weren't too pleased with this trend.
These high-fashion brown faux furs were the "it" factor on the runway this year, but how could you realistically get anything done with these on? Fur-real though, these must go!
Contouring has reached another level. Many people were inspired to add neck contouring to their makeup tutorials this year. It is still a very puzzling and questionable trend that we hope stays in 2016.
Some Youtubers take DIY way too serious! They began using crayons and colored pencils as makeup. A few weeks later Crayola released a statement: "Although our products are non-toxic, we do not recommend using them to make eyeliner, lipstick or other makeup, and strongly discourage their use in this manner. The products were never intended to be used on the skin or face in this manner." Maybe we should leave it up to the cosmetics brands to color our world.
