Ok, I am in no way an authority on beauty or fashion. I’m totally inept when it comes to certain things, but I do have an opinion about what looks good and what looks wack as hell! Certain trends can be dope, but people tend to take it to the extreme. Here are some that I think need to be revised and/or retired.
Ladies, I am all the way here for a great eyebrow arch, but some of us have taken this to a whole ‘notha level. I understand that some of us have to use a lil eyebrow pencil to fill in sparse areas, but when your damn eyebrow looks like a Crayola creation, you’re officially doing too much. The most recent trend that I’ve seen are these full eyebrows that are arched, but are so embellished they look like hockey sticks or boomerangs, some even resemble handle bars. Let’s do more of this:

We can agree that make-up is fun and enhances our beauty, but again, if your face looks like a Crayola creation or like you should be an act in the Universoul circus, then you need to cut down on the layers that you’re piling onto your face. There is some serious catfishing going on! Unless you’re an actor in theater, on TV, or in the movies, you shouldn’t look like a completely different person whenever you wear make-up. If I hug you and get your foundation on my shoulder, it’s too much. If your neck and arms are two or three shades darker/lighter than your face, then it’s time for a consultation with a beauty expert. I understand that certain occasions call for a full face of make-up but seriously, some of y’all must get up early as hell in the morning for your daily metamorphosis. Let’s do more of this:

Since I’m discussing the facial area, what about these fantaboulous false eyelashes?? As with make-up, I agree that they enhance our looks ladies, but only when they make you look like a nymph, not a nymphomanic . It is hella distracting having a conversation with someone who looks like they have a spider or a tree branch attached to their eyelids. Sometimes, I wonder if they’re waving at me with their eyes. Oh, and don’t let her be one of those ladies who also wears heavy mascara, fix it Jesus–seriously! Let’s do more of this:
I’m all for wearing some Spanx or a girdle to suck in and smooth out your bumps and lumps. But, frequently wearing a garment that squeezes you to the point where you can barely breathe and barely eat is doing way too much. If you lose weight wearing a waist trainer it’s likely because you can hardly eat when you’re wearing it. Don’t be fooled by these celebrity endorsements, only the proper diet and exercise leads to weight loss that stays lost. These quick fixes are temporary solutions that may cause permanent problems. Real women have curves and aren’t ashamed to jiggle a little. Please ladies, less of this:
