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.

Those were so fun!!!  High heels without the heels!  

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

OMG the bubble shirts!!!! I had SOO MANY of these!

 

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

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

I was Glitter Goth in highschool (kinda like a punk) so I wore a whooole lot of body glitter, on my face! Big chunks of star shaped sparkles on the corners of my eyes and *GLUED* gems to my forehead. oh man!

 

I also used to use bright colored eyeliner and just...doodled on the sides of my eyes. like vines and stuff, or fake "Egyptian" eyeliner.

 

Granted, I sort of did it for attention and not as "beauty" makeup, but lord I'm glad I don't try to "rock" smurf blue frosted lipgloss anymore.

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

I was like a trashy version of that in middle school. I just used star sticker in the corners of my eyes... Oh geeze. 

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

The jean overalls with one strap undone. Thanks 90s but no thanks.


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

Definitely lined my whole eyes in black - Crazy kids Smiley Happy And I remember trying to do a smoky eye one time before I went out - it just wouldn't look right and we were about to leave so I just left it - looking back it was just solid black all over my eyelids - so terrible!

 

Ahhh this post is bringing back such memories of the 90's/00's...

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

So much black eyeliner. So so so much. 

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

I was into bottlecap jewelery too. 

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

And the belts....and the purses made out of old Capri Suns or seat belts....

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

Omg I was OBSESSED with seat belt-belts. Unfortunately i was too chubby to  fit into any of the ones i found Smiley Sad

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

duct tape wallets

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

If I can get my hands on a microtorch, I am going to do Coke bottlecap beads as a present for my mom. It is bottlecap jewelry with solder. lol.

 

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

That's pretty neat!

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