It was a colorful, volumized, and thoroughly entertaining year in beauty.
2012 brought us caviar nails, Lady Gaga’s creepy black perfume, and the return of dark 90s lipstick. But sometimes trends go on to become classics, and other times they go the way of 80s teased bangs, and we look back in horror at what we did to ourselves.
In no particular order, we present to you the 10 beauty trends that had everyone running to their nail salons, hair stylists, and fave makeup counters–and occasionally had us scratching our formerly ombré’d hair in confusion.
Which ones did you partake in, and which ones have staying power?
