Tuesday Beauty Poll

By Glinda

Well hello there! Long time no see!  Well, that was actually all my fault, but I’m ready and raring to go here in 2012.

Our last poll was about metallic makeup and if women past a “certain age” should take a pass on it.  Interesting, it seems no one can ever agree when that “certain age” begins, though.  Young people and older people alike think it means everybody but them!

The voting was a bit tight, with 41% saying metallics should be given the heave whenever that nebulous age is reached, while 58% say anything goes.  I’d like to join the 58% and say that if you are still interested in wearing makeup at 80, you can wear whatever the hell you like.

Today, Kate Shapland at The Telegraph gave a list of the worst beauty trends of 2011, and I’d like to hear your thoughts.  I didn’t include all of them, because ‘Scouse brow isn’t really being done here.

    Would we really consider most of these trends from 2011? The only one I would consider particular to 2011 would be the nail art. And I would suggest the addition of those awful hair feathers. The rest of the trends have been going for years, wouldn’t you say?

    Can’t choose a “worst” from that list. How about “least annoying” or “harmful to no one but yourself so go ahead, I just don’t care what you do”?

    I guess I’d have to go with unregulated salon treatments because it’s the only one that is actually proveably harmful and one we could do something about.

    All I know is Scouse Brow is on its way and will arrive here on North American shores sometime in late 2012. It harms no one but the wearer, and I remember it from the 80’s, where, in the right context (context being limited to “on the runway of a Japanese designer show” or “in a club”), it looked good. We won’t have context to protect us this time around though, be forewarned.
