8 Beauty Trends to Leave Behind in 2013

As the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. Well, the same thing applies to beauty. There are some beauty trends that don’t need a pass in 2014 and here is my list of have nots!


Moon Manicures: I never understood the purpose of a moon manicure. It looks unfinished or like your polish is chipping from the bottom. Why would someone want to sport an unfinished look?

Stiletto Nails: This pointy nail fad just has to go! The nails look like daggers waiting to poke your eye out or something that can be used as a weapon to commit a crime. IJS

Magnetic Nail Polish: There are easier trends with polish these days like nail stickers, gel nails and art designs. Bigger better technology; let’s move on!

Colored Hair Chalk: Are we in the 80’s? I mean like really? This is a throwback that only needs to be revived for Halloween or the kids. If you must rock this style, get some clip-ins and use one color, not several.

Shaved hair on the Sides: (not the short styles but the long hair styles) This style is not for everyone. Some people don’t have a perfectly shaped face or head to pull this look off. Sorry, but we all know this statement is true! Cassie and Rihanna are the only two who can rock this style hard core and be cute, sexy and adorable all at the same time. LBVS

Bright Red Hair: Leave this look to the celebrities. This is not a color for daily wear.

Exaggerated Lip Injections: It’s just over the top, the injections hurt and it looks crazy! Most of all, it hinders your speech; not to mention, you can get an infection if they are not done correctly. Use a lip plumper; it’s cheaper, safer, faster and stings a little but your speech is normal. IJS

3-D Manicures: While it may look cute for a couple of days, once you hit your hand on something, do household chores or normal activities in life; the designs fall off and you have now wasted your money. Just do nail art 🙂

Some trends are classic, some trends are trendy and others are just fads. The trendy fads are the ones that need to be left behind! What are your thoughts? What beauty trends will you leave behind in 2013?

Have Your Beauty Products Expired???

Hey Beauty Scholars this is just a quick PSA Tip (not a day of PSA’s. Those are scheduled for next week).
Did you know that some products in the US but most products in other countries have an expiration date??? Yes, it is true!!! Product from other countries have a little open jar with a number on the back to tell you how long you have after opening the product before it expires or is no longer beneficial. It’s called the period after opening. Check out the picture below.
So be sure you are not using expired products!!! If a product does not have it, here are some general rules to follow: Products with pumps and tubes last longer because you are not using your fingers to apply the product. A product with SPF will usually have an expiration date. Mascara’s and liquid liners should not be used longer than 3 months!!! Liquid foundations, pressed and loose powders can last for about 1 year if you are cleaning the sponge and brush on a consistent basis; if not, toss it after 6 months because the oil, dirt and debris from the sponge or brush alters the color and causes breakouts.
This is just a sneak peek of what’s to come next week!!! MUAH
