REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

ok, story time.

 

are there any specific trends you took part in--or habits you too part of--only to look back and think 'WHAT WAS I THINKING?!'. it may be embarrassing, it may be humorous, either way--it's one of the more entertaining elements of beauty/makeup that we can only learn to fully understand (and appreciate !) with hindsight. 

 

in the early 2000s i hated the fact i was pale, so i was often a victim of the earlish days of the self tanner craze. i remember thinking it was MAGIC, only to to notice the next day in fresh daylight that i had bright orange streaks running down my calf. and you'd think that would've taught me my lesson but i'd just pretend like it wasn't there and continued on with it for months. another was the disaster at my attempt at a glossy eyelids (posted about more thoroughly in the 'what was your first sephora purchase' thread). and i'll add more to these 'confessions' as i remember more !

 

just to note: this is all in good-spirited nostalgic fun, and NOT to demean anyone's tastes or experiences.

MEMORIES! I had a pair of (I think they were) JNCOs-- at least they were that super wide leg style with huge pockets-- but baby blue. They had this stupid drawstring waist and I would ONLY wear it with this glittery My Little Pony shirt and these white running-style shoes that had big rainbow platforms.

lol yes!  7-10th grade Sacred Hearts, but I always like La Pietra's blue uniforms, then 11th grade went to Midpac, but I didn't start getting into girly stuff until 12th grade when I went to Kalani.

I subscribed to their catalogue when I was younger but could never afford anything from it myself.

I was just going to say the over tanned look! I would wear body tanner make up almost everyday, especially when I wore skirts. Another trend was wearing false lashes almost everyday, it was too much and my lashes become super fragile.

oh also, lip gloss in the early 2000s was particularly gloopy and sticky. NOT conducive to having braces (which i had for OVER 5 years !!)

I grew up in a small farm area, going to a very large but no very diverse regional MS/HS.  In 8th grade I decided I NEEDED phat farm kicks and I was also fake punk so got black hello kitty laces and laced em up.  I spent like $80 on the shoes which was a lot of money for me then!  Some horrible girl sitting behind me in science told me NEVER to wear phat farms again, that I wasn't allowed, and if I did she'd beat me up :X  

 

I never wore them again.  Sure it was the most ridiculous combination ever, but I regret NOT standing up for myself and just wearing them.  I could have outrun her :smileywink:

god middle school was THE WORST. 

8th grade was when i first started using makeup other than just mascara and concealer for spots/under eyes. i'm sure there are a lot of disasters in the cosmetics realm that i've blocked out ! i also remember clothing wise i wore the same pair of jeans and the same 3 shirts in rotation. pretty sure i would match my eyeshadow to whichever shirt i was wearing. (purple, light blue, light pink. rotate !)

I bought make up at walmart once, gold glitter eye liner.  YIKES when really nice with my yellow and orange rubber spiked earrings though
