The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Name a beauty fad or trend that you want to see come BACK into fashion.
Fun answer: it would be awesome to see the eyeshadow trend of the 70s/80s come back around, where one medium-toned color was applied fron lashline to brow and...that's it! Think of all the time we'd save.
Serious answer: I would like to see a return to natural brows. I know that this is already starting to come back around (yay!), but I am just tired of seeing overly-sculpted, unrealistic, photoshopped brows on every brands' Instagram feed. If you are able to do your brows like that, more power to you! It's not the brows I dislike (they can be quite pretty, actually). I'm just tired of the perpetuation by all makeup brands to make it seem as if this is "normal" and something we all should be doing every day. Personally, brows like that are impossible to pull off at 6am when I'm already running late and I'm lucky to have the time to swipe on some brow pencil before I run out the door. So using a pencil, pomade, powder, gel, concealer and highlighter--all on my brows? I just don't have the time, energy, or devotion for all of that!
