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.

Hey I KNOW I wasn't the ONLY BTer running around with farrrrr too thin brows in the late-90s,/early '00s!!!

 

I was so proud of my movie star eye brows!

I have to comment on this topic! In middle/high school my friends and I were those girls - the ones with huge, poofed up bangs, crunchy hair, thin black eyebrows and eyeliner and - wait for it - brown lip liner filled in with concealer sticks.

 

Wet n Wild #666? Anyone? I went through so many of those suckers, I think WnW is still in business because of me!

 

Also wore overalls with one side unhooked, those weird bubble shirts, platform Sketcherz and shaved the underside of my ponytail. Oh, the embarrassment.

LOL Platform Sketchers!! I used to wear my white ones and feel like a super cool Spice Girl Smiley TongueScreen Shot 2014-07-15 at 4.39.57 AM.png

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Hehe, I still like my platform sneakers!!

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Me too. I like the platform sneakers....maybe it's because I like lying about my height. LOL.

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

The platform is so coming back now! I remember I had giant velcro strapped sandals like these babies. You didn't know pain until you rolled our ankle wearing one of these.

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Bahaha! Oh, platforms. I think most are hideous nowadays, no matter if they're sandals, sneakers, etc. Just too chunky!

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Yes! Oh my goodness, I totally had those white ones that Babyspice is wearing too:/

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

I had two of these shirts!! Would have buried them forever in my memory had I not seen this post and photo, lol!!! Worst of all I think mine were tie dye on top of this bubble shirt style...*facepalm*

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Not saying I ever liked the look of those shirts, but they definitely need to come up with a way to make cute shirts that small. I over-pack like a maniac and that would save me a ton of room.

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Ahhhh those shirts - I remember I wanted so many of them!!! I had the multi colored/patterned ones too - o the memories!!!

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Geez, I thought these shirts were so great. So glad they died out.

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

I had that exact one!!!!! Limited Too!!!

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Same!! I thought the three quarter lengthed sleeves on that one were super cute. 

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

In middle school I remember never blending enough or getting the right color because I would buy drugstore crap that you can't match correctly. We would all always have orange lines on our jaw lines. Also over waxing my eyebrows and lining my entire eyes in think black eye liner. I am so glad I have moved past all of that. Haha

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

1) Over-Plucked Thin Eyebrows - They never fully grew back for me Smiley Sad

 

2) Excessive Color Matching - I would match my blue eyeshadow to my large plastic blue earrings, blue plastic bangle bracelets and blue headband for school...

 

SMH

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

 

I did both of these sans the make up part !

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

LMAO @ "excessive color matching".... ::raises hand slowly as head lowers in shame:: I'm super duper guilty of that too! SMH

Re: REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !

Oh the eyebrows... I feel your pain... still suffering from it years and years later..... Double Smiley Sad
