Beauty is fun! Discovering new products and learning new tricks are just a couple of the things we love most about exploring the wonderful world of beauty. It's even more exciting because there seems to be a new trend coming out weekly. It can be hard to keep up sometimes, but we're still on the lookout for anything interesting.
While we find it amusing that many are eager to share tips and tricks, we found that some of them don't live up to the hype and others are even dangerous. Here are beauty trends you may want to pass up on.
This trick has been practised by many for centuries now, but it was recently found out in a study that it's not exactly as effective as many believe it to be. Turmeric has been touted as a miracle worker for people with oily skin as it has antibacterial and oil-absorbing properties.

Lash Enhancement Tattoo
Microblading was all the rage last year, but now it's the lashes that get the attention. A procedure called Lash Enhancement Tattoo aims to make your lashes look lush. The procedure is done by filling in the gaps between your lashes with ink. The result looks a lot like a tattooed eyeliner. While we encourage you to do anything you want, we implore you to refrain from doing anything extreme in sensitive areas of your face.
