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.

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.

Does anyone remember the Pacifier Necklace?? All I can say is why did we do this???

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

YES!!! Hindsight - those things were sooo weird!

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

Weird, yes. I had some friends who wore actually pacifiers and would suck on them in class. Weirder still.

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

Bahahaha, yep.  That was me. I would wear like thirty pacifiers in one outfit! 

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

Yes!  I remember this too.  I had bracelets, necklaces, earrings.  All pacifiers just like that picture. Had some bigger ones too.

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

The Pacifier necklace was definitely an odd trend!
