Whether it's the newest eyeshadow palette that every beauty fanatic needs or some cosmetic procedure fad, it doesn't take long for a trend to do the rounds.

Remember the Mac "velvet teddy" trend?

Kickstarted by the one and only Kylie Jenner, Instagram became obsessed with the shade of Mac lipstick so they could recreate the star's signature look.

Then came the lip filler craze.

As soon as Kylie's lips became plumper, everyone else wanted bigger lips too and soon enough, so many people were heading out to get lip fillers.

This eventually led to more...

Facial filler gained huge popularity, with many people opting for the procedure to enhance cheekbones, jawlines, and even noses.

And of course, there was the rise of the cut crease.

So many up and coming makeup artists made a name for themselves online by posting makeup snaps like this.

But its safe to say that some beauty trends are more on the weird side...

Not all of them have a positive reaction...

Take "wavy eyebrows," for instance.

The trend saw beauty influencers drawing their eyebrows on in a wavy pattern, leaving many of us slightly baffled.

Although often there was a little help from Facetune too...

Many speculated that a tiny bit of editing had a part to play in getting the wavy brow effect.

But the latest beauty trend is probably one of the most bizarre yet.

And it could come with potentially fatal consequences. Keep scrolling to find out more...

People can't make their minds up of it after seeing the pictures.

For the most part, people were pretty horrified.

Others shamefully admitted that they actually liked it.

Each to their own, right?

You've heard of lip fillers or overlining your lips, but this new fad, dubbed as "devil lips" sets out to achieve a "wavy" appearance.

Many believe its origin lies in Russia.

Several think the strange beauty trend was started by a Russian plastic surgeon called Emelian Braude.

The procedure is said to involve inserting filler in the outer lip...

Creating a wavy outer edge across the lips.

And the final look is pretty bizarre.

But it kind of looks strangely aesthetically pleasing too.

But the bizarre lip look could come with some very serious health risks...

"You can sharpen and contour by enhancing the vermillion border, but these ‘devil lips’ are unnatural,"  Dr Krystyna, cosmetic dentist and facial aesthetician, explained to Dazed.

Trying to recreate this look with filler could be fatal...

“Filler injected inappropriately could end up in a blood vessel, causing blockages and leading to necrosis (death) of the tissue. The vessels are around the lips, so using filler inappropriately is what can cause this."

Of course, many have questioned how legit these so-called "devil lips" are...

We know how prevalent the use of Photoshop or Facetune is, so it's not totally unreasonable to raise questions over whether these pictures are even real.

But there's still a danger people could try and recreate it.

And as we already know, the consequences of this could be deadly.

It looks like someone has sussed out the mystery behind the trend once and for all...

This woman claims the trend is all down to Photoshop after using the editing technique for herself. We have to say, we aren't exactly surprised... For a list of the weirdest fashion trends, keep scrolling. Some of these are horrific...
