Instagram is full of random, weird and strange beauty hacks and trends. From the fabulous to the really weird.
The internet is also full of them and you see them shared around Facebook.
So I am going to do the top 10 weirdest and strangest beauty trends and hacks going.
Yes, this is a real thing! I first saw this circulating around Instagram, many were showing off their ‘hungover’ or ‘just woken’ selfies with smeared lipstick, mascara running down face.
Basically, when you make up after a bad night out and feel rough as anything.
This never caught on, thankfully.
I am all for embracing the ‘can’t be bothered shaving’ look, I just wear something that covers my armpits.
But another trend was dying the armpit hair vibrant colours. From red to blue, they were all colours of the rainbow and more.
Another trend that really never caught on.
Vibrantly Dyed Eyebrows
Following on from coloured armpit hair, people were dying their brows a multitude of colours.
Having the same hair colour, that is pretty cool. But blue brows and brown hair?
Just had me constantly asking why? Why, why why?
Okay I never really got this, having needles rolled along your skin and blood massaged everywhere.
I never really saw any benefit to it, apart from maybe having a scabby face for a while.
I thought it was a bit unhygienic and rather gross.
But whatever floats your boat hey? This trend is still on going, thanks to many stars having it done and photographing on Instagram.
I never knew why people did this for a cosmetic reason. I mean, who cares what colour it is?
Who even looks?
It was something that always baffled me, but hey if it makes you happy.

Dryer Sheets On Hair
Apparently rubbing a tumble dryer sheet on your hair will stop flyaway hairs.
I am not sure why this would work, I would assume would be the opposite effect with the fabric making a static charge.
But f it works, cool? At least your hair will smell fresh.
Longer Lashes Hacks
Now, this got me. Recently I have seen many variations to make lashes thicker and longer.
Usually it is vaseline, then can use baby powder or finishing powder then your mascara after.
I did try this and it ruined my beloved mascara. My lashes looked clumpy and like spider legs.
Another was a coat of mascara, then baby powder, then another coat of mascara.
This didn’t really work either, just had clumpy lashes again.
Use it with an old mascara, don’t ruin a good one.
Vajazzle has been doing the rounds for years now, I never understood this either.
I mean, who really is going to see down there other than your other half?
Can you imagine, stray diamante’s everywhere? No, just… no haha!
Coca Cola or Beer Hair
Washing hair with coca cola or beer has been floating around for a while now.
I have used beer products a few years ago and my hair was amazing.
But to pour actual beer or coca cola all over? Can just imagine it will be really sticky and messy.
This is not one for me.
Orange/Red Lipstick Under Eyes
Now this one I tried several times. I have terrible dark circles and I saw on Instagram and Pintrest to use red or orange lipstick under eyes then blend, cover with concealer.
I tried this and my eyes were awful, they were red, stained or could not cover.
I did use a salmon pink eyeshadow lightly and this colour corrected, but lipstick? No, too pigmented.
Have you come across any weird or strange beauty hacks or trends?
