Top 6 Beauty Trends to Leave in 2015 [Photos]
As we welcome in the new year, we need to get a few things straight. There are some beauty trends that blossomed in 2015. But do they stand a chance at surviving in the new year? Not at all. Here are some hideous photos of the trends you should ditch right now.
Metallic pleated midis
Not even the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz could pull off this trend. Midi’s are incredibly difficult to pull off. They make short legs disappear, long legs look stumpy and calves look bulky. But power to you who can pull them off. But no one and I mean no one can wear metallic pleated midis with grace and pride.
Metallic tattoos are cool. Metallic jewelry is cool. Metallic clothing is the most difficult to wear. Period. What can you pair it with? Plus if you’re taking a group photo with flash, your friends will vie you for the rest of the evening. Not to mention that metallic material can be expensive.
Instead try: Helena Contrast Maxi Skirt for your longer skirt needs. This skirt is chic and classic and a steal for only $18 from Boohoo.
Or… metallic eyeshadow for your metallic needs. Remember, only in small doses!
Tanning has become more and more mainstream in 2015. Winter, summer, tans are sported any season. But I”m crossing my fingers that this trend is left in 2015 – and if you care about your health, you should too.
Here’s proof that every tanning method is dangerous. There’s no safe way around a healthy glow. So please tart embracing your natural hue in this new year. The key to looking healthy isn’t cancerous skin. It’s good health.
Instead try: Sunscreen that isn’t oily or smothering like Vichy Capital Soleil 50 Lightweight Foaming Lotion. It has an SPF of 50 and is light and foamy just like a moisturizer. Remember good health always looks best.
Boxy Pinterest brows
2015 has been dubbed by beauty bloggers as the year of the brow. Whether your brow game is on, off, on fleek or on point, the Internet came up for a title for every brow. The most popular type of brow became a highly drawn, boxy brow.
But this looks unnatural to say the least. In fact, it’s one of the biggest brow disasters of this year. Play it safe and opt for a more natural look.
Intentionally clumpy lashes
In 2015 Maybelline stuffed up. They made a new productline dedicated to mascaras that intentionally make your eyelashes clumpy. And you know what the worst part is? People actually bought into it. For nearly $40 too. They chose to have heavier, angrier looking eyelashes. In 2016 let’s opt for a more classy look.
Instead try: DiorShow Iconic Mascara for $28. Your eyelashes will be lengthened and defined – no clumps in sight here!
Low-calorie, Low-fast diets
Whatever diet you subscribed to in 2015 it probably promised two things: low calories and low fat. Because these two things are the enemy of good health right? Well, not really. Your 2015 low-fat, low calorie diet may actually have made you fatter. It’s not you, it’s them.
Instead try: a low-carb diet. Research shows that these diets are more effective and less restrictive. So you can still lose weight while enjoying life. Bam.
The lob, or long bob, took over as the go-to hairstyle of 2015. But maybe it should stay there. This hairstyle requires all the maintenance of a bob without looking tidy. It is also impossible to style – once you have a lob, that’s it. No braids, no curls, no buns. Just a lob. That’s kind of boring.
Instead try: all or nothing. Go all in with a bob, or grow your hair past your shoulders.
