2018 has been a good year for the beauty industry and the trends got weirder.
Beauty trends are moving fast in the age of Instagram with makeup artists competing for who can win the award of craziest eyebrows ever. Halo brows, tiger brows, rainbow brows, barely there brows courtesy of Rihanna’s Vogue September cover have all beein all the rage this year.
In 2018, beauty was all about a brow, but it wasn’t the only wild trend to take the internet by storm. From sushi nails to waterbottle curls and neon lips, I think we have seen it all. For many, the following trends should be left in 2018.
1. Water Bottle Curls
Inspired by the Dyson Airwrap styler, which uses air to curl hair instead of heat, beauty vloggers took to the internet to try and recreate the look with nothing but a blowdryer and a water bottle.
2. Fishtail Brows
With nothing but a little concealer and brow product, you can create the negative space effect needed for a fishtail brow.
3. Stormi Nails
One of the most horrifying beauty trends of the year, this nail tutorial recreated beauty mogul Kylie Jenner’s first photo of her daughter Stormi.
4. Halo Brows
Halo brows are brows connected in a halo shape across the forehead. This is a trend best left on the internet.
5. Yellow Blush
Yellow blush sounds terrible in theory, but in practice, it’s one of the most beautiful beauty trends of 2018. Sweep it high across the cheekbones and across the eyelids for the boldest effect.
6. Corkscrew Nails
Corkscrew nails they look cool but can’t actually open any wine bottles. And imagine trying to put contacts in your eye with these contraptions.
South Korean nail artist Unistella created these three-dimensional sushi nails that look (almost) good enough to eat.
8. Neon Makeup
Expertly traced and blended white eyeliner can give the illusion of a neon sign to eyes and lips. Paired with bright colors and textures, the neon makeup trend was born.
9. Tie Dye Hair
Hairstylist Boho Brushed created this southwest print hair color that looks like every bit as tie-dyed as the shirts made in the 90s.
