Each woman has her own reasons for wearing makeup. Whether it’s to make her feel beautiful or to cover imperfections depends on who you ask.

But no matter the reason, hopefully all women can come together and agree that the following makeup trends have to stay in the past. Avoid the following looks, they went out of style fast, and it’ll be obvious why when you see them…

Overly Dark Lip Liner Should NOT Make A Comeback

This 90’s fashion trend of super dark lip liner needs to stay in the 90s. Unless you are Gwen Stefani, you can’t pull this off, sorry.

Feathered Eyebrows Should Fly Far From Here

Her Campus

When Stella Sironen invented these, they had a moment, but now they’re seen as too dramatic for anything but extraordinary circumstances. It’s a trend trying too hard.

Glitter Roots Aren’t Great

No. Just no. Glitter roots sound like a great idea, but in practice, it’s a ridiculous pain to wash off the glitter and can take months. Also, it looks kind of like dandruff which is never sexy.

Clumpy Mascara Is Pretty Awful

The only thing that clumpy mascara does for a woman is make her look like she was trapped in a cheap rip-off of a David Bowie music video around the time of Ziggy Stardust.

Freckle Tattoos Cannot Be Undone

Today

We just don’t know why anyone would choose to permanently change their looks for a temporary fashion fad. You don’t need freckles unless you were born with them.

The Bubble Has Already Popped For Pimple Nails

We can’t even fathom why you’d want to do this (except on Halloween), but it takes all sorts to make a world. But really, don’t go for pimple nails.

Bubble Nails Are Busting With Naff

Some beauty trends simply aren’t meant to last longer than a day. Having bubble nails was one of those trends. There’s nothing alluring about looking like you’ve been trapped in a candy store.

Nostril Hair Extension Needs To Be Blown Away

Hello Giggles

We appreciate that nostril hair extensions arose from a bunch of bored Instagrammers having a laugh, but if you’re thinking of doing this in real life? Don’t.

Brownie-Scented Eyebrows Smell Bad

Shemazing

Scented eyebrows? That might work if you’re six. Otherwise, it’s just not something that you really want to do – it was a nice gimmick for five minutes, but it’s over now.

Lollipop Lips Feel A Bit Lunatic

The idea is to achieve an effect that makes you look like you’ve been eating a lollipop. What it actually does is make it look like you’ve been kissing like a teenager and didn’t touch your makeup up before returning to work.

Meet The Movie Villains Everyone Secretly Agrees With

Movie villains are there to make us feel fear, anger and frustration—in other words, every negative emotion that exists. They are the bad guy, and most films make sure that fact is clear to viewers from the get go. When it isn’t, they do a good job of clarifying later on. But just like in the real world, not everything is so black and white, and sometimes the character who is portrayed as the root of all evil, really isn’t. A closer look at the motives that drive some of the most notorious villains in film often reveals that they’re often not all that bad. Read on, and you’ll discover you probably agree with them.

It Is Time To Take This Trope Off The Air: 25 Cliches Millennials Are Tired Of

Some plot devices have proven themselves to be tried and true, but these days, we think we can all agree that there’s a trope or two that are just plain tired and we hope Hollywood can agree it’s time to throw them in the trash. We’re just having a hard time believing that these characters in their 20s are living large while working as baristas. And why does no one lock their door? Sure your kooky neighbor can come over unannounced, but so can criminals. So we’d like to take the time to air our hokey Hollywood grievances, and then can we please retire these tropes?
