Nope, you’re not imaging it: Every damn day, there’s a brand-spanking-new beauty trend circling the Internet that’s, uh, super unique. On a Wednesday, we could be oohing and ahhing over crazy-cool, watermelon-pink hair, which we’ll then immediately forget when we meet Thursday’s glitter-eyeshadow phenomenon. And considering these bizarre trends disappear before we really get to know them (some of them for the better, tbh), we often miss out on, or skip over, the coolest, craziest trends that could actually inspire us to rethink that super-safe, brown-and-blah makeup we slap on every morning.
And since we think these trends deserve more than their five minutes of fame, we want to make sure you’re officially introduced to the coolest, weirdest, and most bizarre beauty trends that have been blowing up this summer, like rainbow-colored highlighting and metallic freckles. And even though you probably won’t be heading into work tomorrow morning with barbed wire eyebrows (but if so, respect), these trends will at the very least force you to think outside of your beauty box. So click through all seven of the biggest summer trends, below, and make sure you get well-versed in them quickly, ’cause we’ll probably have seven newer and crazier trends by the end of this sentence.
