We love makeup trends. We love judging them and learning from them when possible. There are some trends that everyone's tried, but some are so bad that no one would ever attempt them, not even in jest. While 2017 had some particularly interesting makeup looks, some makeup styles have endured much longer than a year. Excessively full falsies and clown-level contouring, for example, have been around for quite some time and (like most of the trends compiled in this list) they're probably not going anywhere. 

The makeup junkies at Ranker don't absolutely hate too many trends, but we were curious to see which looks you folks loathe seeing at Sephora or online. We took a poll and got quite a few varied answers. Unsurprisingly, you are tired of almost everything related to brows. Squiggle brows, over-plucked brows, over-filled brows, super thick Frida-Kahlo-like brows - none of them are safe from scrutiny. In an interesting turn, though, quite a few beauty lovers are totally over the warm red shadow eye looks that have been popping on runways and regular gals and guys everywhere. It seems like quite a few people are ready for change. 

Take a peak at the trends that are no longer fan favorites. Are you ahead of the them or far behind?

Too Much Contour


"Face contouring [that's so overdone you look plastic]... Unless you're on stage, it looks way overdone in broad daylight. Everybody is aware of contouring, nobody believes your cheek bones are that high. It seems like a lot of work to look like a lot of work.

Anything Related To Brows: Over-Filling, Unibrows, Wavy Brows


"Eyebrows that are filled in too dark and look like Sharpie. Also when they are like wayyy too close together and look like a unibrow... Or when people with light hair fill their brows in super dark, like we're all blind... [And the] wiggle eyebrow trend [they're] cringey..."

The Furry Nail Trend

"Furry nails [are awful]. Why get your nails done if you're going to just ruin them after playing with them? What a waste. I could see getting it done around Halloween but not any other time."
