7 Huge Beauty Trends That Will Be Out in 2018

May they rest in peace.

Alright, folks—we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the crazy, mind-melting, WTF-worthy sideshow known as 2017 is almost over. The bad news is that as we say hello to the new year, we’ll also be saying goodbye to a heap of 2017’s wildest, coolest, and most-viral beauty trends.

We know, we know. But before you tear up, we'll point out the obvious—no trend truly ever dies (proof: crimped hair), nor should trends ever really dictate what you should and shouldn't wear, because you do you. Even still, we'll be seeing a lot less of these looks in the new year, so please, pay your respects by remembering the year's craziest beauty trends that are going to go "live on a farm" in 2018.

1 Unicorn Nails

Sure, 2017 was technically the Year of the Rooster, but unicorns came in a damn close second (remember the color-changing Frappuccino that shook the world?). Here’s hoping rope braids stick around, but unicorn-inspired nails may have reached the end of their life span.

3 Fidget Spinner Anything

We can all collectively agree that the Internet's happiest moment of 2017 was that month when ~everything~ was about fidget spinners, right? The massive crop of fidget-spinner beauty products may or may not have created the same effect, but even so—three-in-one lip balms are pretty genius.

4 Barbed Wire Brows

For the most adventurist of trend wearers were barbed wire brows—a cool, piece-y style that looked great on our Pinterest boards, but maybe a tad bit extra on our faces. Especially when covered in glitter and rhinestones.

5 Squiggle Lips

The Internet does weird things—like take beauty jokes and morph them into legit trends. Exhibit A: these wavy lips, which quickly (albeit, momentarily) took over our Insta feeds for the summer, after the bright, shining star that was squiggle brows.

6 Glitter Roots

Glitter roots made for some really, really, ridiculously good-looking photo ops. The clean up? Not so much (translation: not even a vat of shampoo can remove that shit). And the environment hasn't been to happy about it, either.

7 Carved Brows

Hear us out: We love a strong brow, but the carved trend felt a bit too Avatar inspired for everyday wear. The look did showcase some seriously impressive makeup mastery, though. And for that, we bow down, say a silent prayer, and release this trend back into the ether.
