Tip Stop – Five Beauty Trends That Bombed

11.jpg

In 2008, not every beauty move was an undisputed winner. We bed good riddance to the following:

Face yoga: A new-agey alternative to injections, face yoga hit the high-end gym scene. You were supposed to stretch, yawn, and puff out your cheeks to reduce your wrinkles. I felt idiotic sticking my tongue out like that. Plus: It doesn’t work.

Eyebrow and lash transplants: If you lost your brows and lashes from alocpecia or chemotherapy, these procedures are great. As beauty treatments? Not so much. Stick with pencils, powders, and false lashes.

Pastel hair: Sure, Pink and Lily Allen pulled off baby blue and sugary pink dye jobs. But if you don’t perform on a stage, skip this. Besides, these shades fade fast. And maybe that’s a good thing.

Bowl-cut bangs: The black wigs and black lips look at Yves Saint Laurent’s fall show sent a shiver down my spine. Those bowl-cut bangs looked sick on the runway, but they were downright weird for everyday. Wisely, women tried the models’ black lip gloss (Yves Saint Laurent Gloss in Pur Black, $28) and left the hair on the cutting room floor.

Across-the-forehead-headbands: You are not Yoko Ono. You are not Joan Baez. It is not 1972. The end.

Now give yourself one point for every beauty disaster you sidestepped.
