You've probably heard plenty of people exclaiming about how bad the year 2017 has been. Somehow, the past 12 months have managed to be some of the worst months in recent memory. But here we are. We're finally nearing the end of this dumpster fire of a year and the light of 2018 is in sight.
But before the ball drops and we start singing Auld Lang Syne, let's take a quick look back at some of the worst mistakes we made as a society in the past year. Don't worry; we're not getting political, here. We're talking about crimes of beauty and fashion.
Here are the worst things people did in the name of "beauty" in 2017:
Let's start with squiggle brows.
Honestly, it’s exactly the kind of beauty trend that the year 2017 deserved. We hate it, but we can’t even really be made about this one.
Not to be outdone, squiggle lips soon began taking over the Internet.
In her caption, this woman writes, “My friends made me do it.”
Lady, we hate to break it to you, but true friends don’t let friends participate in beauty trends like “squiggle lips.”
Can we all just agree before heading into the new year that nothing on one’s face should squiggle?
We’re not asking for a lot here, folks. Just keep the squiggling away.
There were also some people who tried to make "braided brows" happen.
OK, we’ll admit that braided brows don’t look terrible.
But we don’t have time to braid our brows. Heck, we hardly have time to brush our actual head hair in the morning. This look is just way too extra.
Remember lollipop lips?
For whatever reason, 2017 was the year that some people wanted to recreate that “Kindergartner who just ate a lollipop” look on their face. Did we learn nothing from the Kylie Jenner challenge?!
If you think this is bad, just wait until you see this trend that took place inside the mouth.
