Another year has passed and another slew of beauty trends have graced our style. Some trends were subtle and some were out there, but 2012 sure did have some memorable beauty moments.
Here, we break down the best, the worst, and the trends we’re not so sure about:
The Burgundy Lip
In 2012 the classic red lip took a step out of the spotlight and let the burgundy lip take control. This is a trend I plan on implementing well into the end of the winter season.
The Cat Eye
The Cat eye is a flattering eyeliner trend for everyone. Who doesn’t love a sultry cat eye?
The Pastel Ends
My little pony wants her hair back.
The Halo Braid
This is only okay for Florence Welch and even then… eh.
The Claw Nail
This trend could be intriguing, but the majority cannot wear such a sharp and rigid nail.
Relax, Miley, relax.
The Top Knot
This trend can look beautiful, whether in sock-bun variety or a quick tousled, last minute top knot, or it can look overdone and Cindy Lou Who-ish.
The Textured Nail
Nail Art was all the rage in 2012, but sometimes, textured nails can be a bit overdone. I’m a fan of velvet nails, but caviar nails may be pushing it.
