Things to leave in 2012

Hey Everyone, 
Today's post is my view on trends that should be left in 2012... not to be repeated! 
You might agree, you might not, its my personal views and the trends I wouldn't be able to pull off. However I'm sure some of you can, we're all so different it would be impossible to generalize a trend and say that everyone shouldn't do it! 
So if you do like one of these 2012 trends I'm not saying your wrong I'm just saying that I personally don't like it...
So here are the trends I think should be left in 2012:

 1. Black Eye Liner 
Obviously not all black eyeliner... I just mean when its all around the water line AND tight line at the same time in a really harsh black! It makes the eyes close up so much and look really small!

 2. The Umpa Lumpa
This has never been a good look EVER! Au naturel is the way forward! 
But if you can't live without it there's nothing wrong with a subtle tan, just not the full on orange!

 3. Nude Lips
I'm the biggest fan of a lovely pinky peach nude lip the ones I don't like are the paler than your actual lip nude, like applying a really pale foundation to your lip! You look like some creepy doll! AVOID!

 4. Glitter ball face
Blushers with huge amounts of glitter suit know-one... 
I'm talking chunks now not a little glow! They make your pores look bigger, not to mention that most people need sunglasses to avoid the disco ball effect coming off your face! Why not try cream blushes or mattes and keep the shimmer for your highlight! 

 5. Crazy Lashes
I mean the full on OMG how are your eyes staying open it must feel like eyelid weightlifting false eyelashes! 
Individual or more natural looking lashes can look so pretty if you need some extra help, if not why not even just go without! Massive, harsh, black, thick, plastic looking eyelashes are impressing know-body! 

 6. The Scouse brow
I'm all for a nice big natural brow but the scouse brow...I don't even no what to say just don't go there!

 7. Orange/Red Eye Shadow
I never really understood this personal taste I guess, but I just think it looks awful, however I'm all for orange or red lips as long as its the right one for your skin tone!

 What would you add to this list?

    1. lol thanks! I like it if its does pretty over the top lash line but apart from that think it should be avoided! :) x

  2. Great post, made me giggle. I hate scouse brows. x

  3. This was hilarious, loved it x

  4. One of the things I hate the most is when people apply like 6 different brands/formulas of mascara to their lashes one after another. On both their upper and lower lashes. Espeically when they're really pale cause it looks so harsh, spidery, black and just general disgusting! Loved your post:) x

    1. haha 6 different brands that's funny love it! Thanks! :) x

  5. Totally agree with all of the above! hate seeing really dark eyes with eyeliner.

  6. Couldn't agree more with all of those... especially the scouse brow, pet hate of mine! xx

  7. I agree with you so much on these! I never understood why people want nude lips that look like you've painted them with foundation!
