25 Beauty Trends We Would Never, Ever Wear

We’re nothing if not adventurous in our primping choices, but even we have our limits. After decades of experimentation (most of which occurred in our awkward middle school years), we’ve zeroed in on those trends that just do not work for us — and no amount of cajoling or pleading will get us to change our minds.

Sadly, in our own cases, the success rate has been practically non-existent. To see what we mean, click through for the 25 beauty trends you won’t see us rocking anytime soon.
