Happy 2012! It’s that time of year again. Time to revamp those resolutions from last year, commit to hitting the gym more, eating healthier, and being an all-around “better” person. I hear you, I’m right there too!
In moving forward, it’s also essential to let go of the past. Here’s my list of eleven “beauty blunders” we ought to leave in 2011. No nostalgia here…
“Guylashes” – Men’s grooming habits are on the rise, but I don’t think they’ve risen to this — Yet. Perhaps I’m old school, but I definitely prefer my man au natural.
Adele’s VMA Talons – I know, I know. Long nails were all the rage during New York Fashion Week Fall 2011, but what about practicality? How does she put in her contacts? What about the safety of others? We need answers Adele!
Kim Kardashian’s Checkered Lips – Maybe for Halloween or as man-repellent. That’s where I’d draw the line. (Note: I wouldn’t suggest wearing checkered lips to work either)
LiLo’s Stained Smile – This is a prime example of how lifestyle impacts dental hygiene. Lucky for Lindsay, she was back to her pearly-whites just days after this photo was taken. For the rest of us, I guess traditional brushing and Crest Whitestrips will have to do.
Ashley Judd’s Visible Powder – Either her makeup artist had the day off or there wasn’t a mirror handy. Poor thing!
Wet Hair – The drenched look was definitely hot during Spring 2012 Fashion Week. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty certain the drowned rat style looks lazy rather than fashion-savvy. Or maybe that’s just me.
Pastel Pouts – Reminds me of Smackers Lip Frosting circa 1997.
Eugenie & Beatrice’s Hats at the Royal Wedding – Tradition aside, can you imagine leaving the house wearing these? Even Victoria Beckham managed to look gorgeous (as always) in her royal wedding attire! Perhaps these outrageous cappers are an accessory us Americans will never fully understand.
Nicki Minaj’s Bubblegum Hair – Bubblegum was not the first word that came to mind when I first laid eyes on Nicki Minaj’s hair at the MTV VMAs. Just saying.
Puppylocks – First Featherlocks, then Puppylocks. What’s next? Catlocks? I’ll admit I totally sported some feathers a year ago, but definitely wouldn’t be adorning my pet with colored rooster feathers. I’m sure PETA is having a fit.
Animal-Shaped False Eyelashes – Unless you’re heading to a Halloween shindig, please steer clear of these animal-shaped lashes. That includes you “guylash” lovers too!
