Beauty Trends of 2017 We Never Saw Coming

The holiday season is in full swing and in just a few short weeks the year will come to an end. So now is a perfect opportunity to look back at the beauty trends of 2017 we never saw coming. This year we have seen an utterly massive amount of new trends that mesmerize, enchant, and sometimes horrify us.

While some trends are sure to follow us into 2018 we can only hope and pray most will fall off the face of the earth before we can refresh our Instagram feeds. While I can not claim to be a fan of all of the latest trends, there is no denying that some are genuinely fascinating.

So without further ado, here are the beauty trends of 2017 we never saw coming.

Weirdest Beauty Trends of 2017 We Never Saw Coming

Sticking Things on Your Face

I honestly have no idea where to begin with this trend. From pearls, gems, flowers, stickers, glitter, stones, and now stars. Its official gluing things to your face in 2017 is not only cool but in fashion. Even though most of us learned this was a bad idea in grammar school some have decided to give it another go. Embrace your inner child and try out this trend before 2018.

Fascinating Eyebrows

If the eyes are the window to your soul, then the eyebrows are the curtains. I am a huge fan of the fuller more natural eyebrows of 2017. From the catwalk to the office, women are sporting more natural-looking arched brows. This trend is a welcomed transition from the pencil-thin brows of the early 2010’s and 2016’s exaggerated arches.

By this point you have already been inundated with the onslaught of brow trends this year has had to offer and you have been an excellent trooper through it all. From barbed wire, squiggle, bleached, and craved eyebrows, we have indeed seen it all. However, 2017 is not over yet, and spiked eyebrows just made their appearance on our feeds. This trend can only leave one asking, what is next?

Fantastical Creature Invasion

This year we have all experienced the unicorn phenomenon (Invasion) that somehow infiltrated all forms of our lives from bagels, frappuccinos, hair, nails, makeup, and everything else imaginable. Then as the year quickly progressed we were introduced to make other mythical creature inspired trends, most prominently mermaids.

I can unequivocally state that this year is officially the year of mythical creature beauty trends. From mermaid hair, glitter galore, mermaid-inspired makeup, mermaid rhinestone-studded nails, and just when we think we are free of the mermaid trend the internet brings forth mermaid eyelashes. Nope, I promise I could not make this up.

So what are mermaid lashes? They are multi-colored lashes that are supposed to represent the colorful and full ombre glory that is mermaid eyes. Moreover, to answer your question, yes they are trending.

Everything Else:

Honestly, I could spend days writing about all the beauty and makeup trends we have seen this year, but I just wanted to cover the most unusual. For the last trend, I only have three words: nose hair extensions-- you are killing me.
