Alright, here is the deal. I believe that the makeup is truly an art form. I adore creating all kinds of new looks, contouring, creating Halloween designs, and sparkling highlighter cheeks. While I am not a big fan of squiggle eyebrows, squiggle lips, bump nails or fur nails, I can unquestionably value their uniqueness. I’ve been of the “you do you” school of thought. Whatever makes you upbeat and happy, shy of harming another individual, is perfectly fine.
Which is the reason I essentially can’t, can not, get behind these nostril hair extensions as an artistic expression or some other kind of shape. Allure recognized this disturbing trend on Instagram a week ago. Here is what you really need to know if you have found yourself reading this post asking “…Why?”
They are the result of @Gret_chen_chen’s curved and delightful personality. Instagram client @gret_chen_chen as of late posted two pictures that are in all likelihood false eyelashes framed into a circle and stuck at the very edge of each of her nostrils. They are twisting out from under every nostril like a couple of millipedes getting away from whatever a millipede calls its home, most likely a vortex driving specifically to hell. From her subtitle, it is clear she intends to name the look “nose hair extension,” and my opinion on all this is that I despise it.
These pictures have been circulating the web. Obviously, they are some sort of hit trend. They motivated others to DIY their own nose hair. The hashtag, #NoseHairExtensions, on Instagram has been blowing up.
I have a receptive outlook and accordingly will concede that possibly I just ~don’t get it~. Perhaps @gret_chen_chen is living in a more advanced time while my lacking cerebrum is stuck in 2018. Possibly she is a very long time on top of things, an excellence pioneer we will all bow down to sooner rather than later. I do wish this for her, but this is something I will never get behind.
