The 10 Weirdest Beauty Trends Of 2018, Ranked

As we hit the tail end of 2018, we are looking back and ranking the year’s weirdest beauty trends and hoeeee boy, there’s been some real treasures.

From wacky eyebrows, to sleek wet hair, and faux freckles, there was a lot of experimentation this year. These are the kinds of edgy looks that totally work on a Kardashian or Rihanna, but when I try them I look like I’ve just emerged from a dewy swamp after being possessed by a glitter demon. A very big mood, indeed.

Without further adieu, here are 2018’s weirdest beauty trends, ranked!

#10. Rainbow Teeth

Surely no one thought this is a good idea but in October this became a very cooked trend.


#9. Bonkers Eyebrows

From feathered, angular, zig-zagged, plaited, this year was all about doing weird shit with one’s eyebrows for no obvious reason.


#8. Wet Look Hair

This is a perfect example of a look that when attempted by normies looks like a big ol’ greasy mess.

#7. Glitter Absolutely Everywhere

It seems every year people are applying more and more glitter to their faces and bodies. Beginning with glitter boobs which took off in festival season, lipstick is now incomplete without a glitter topper. I don’t hate it tbh.


#6. Yellow Blush

This trend that dropped in May is definitely a bit different. Serving The Simpsons realness.


#5. Holographic Hair

This is a bit more subtle than the rainbow hair trend which took over 2017, but it’s just as whimsical. I dig it.


#4. Nose Highlight

This was a massive year for highlighting one’s nose like Rudolph. It works best with minimal highlight everywhere else.


#3. Strobing Instead Of Contour

ICYMI, contouring is cancelled and it’s all about shaping your face with luminous highlighting.


#2. Faux Freckles

This is a makeup look we can all easily emulate so, therefore, I’m all for it.


#1. Ombre Stained Lips

Stop overlining and start inner-lining your lips ‘cos big lips are out and this Korean trend is so damn pretty.

Fun fact: this is completely unretouched! First time I give you guys a raw photo ☺️ Can we btw just talk about the @popstarcosmetics Diamond Gloss?! I used it for the first time today and it’s AWESOME!! It’s very thin and I find it a bit easier to work with than the Mac Clear Lipglass that I usually use! I can’t wait to try a drip with it 👀 Which Gloss is your fave and should I try next??? Tell me ⬇️ (One or more products used in this look was sent to me for free, and by Danish law I’m required to therefore mark this post as sponsored.)
