They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We suppose the same statement must apply when it comes to beauty trends as well. Over the last two decades we have witnessed the rise and fall of colored contacts, fish pedicures, and even semen facials, but few other beauty trends are as weird–or terrifying–as teeth nails!

Yes, you read those last two words right–teeth nails! Fingernails grafted in the shape of teeth are a real and new thing, AND it is trending!

Wow, you guys! It’s very rare that the Internet shocks and stuns us, but we have to admit, this new nail art trend has us SHOOK. Of course, we were surprised/disturbed to see that pregnant women were getting their ultrasound painted on their nails several weeks ago, but once again, we’re finding ourselves having a similar reaction to the latest nail art to hit the world wide web: teeth nails.

Right about now, you’re probably hoping this new nail art isn’t exactly what it sounds like, but we have bad news… IT IS! The ~interesting~ look is brought to you by @nail_sunny on Instagram because, apparently, someone felt like teeth belong not just in our mouths, but on our fingers, too. Unfortunately, they were wrong. See?

We have to say we are NOT feeling this beauty trend! Teeth belong in your mouth and not on your hands. At this point we just have to wonder what outlandish trend is next. Are we going to do teeth toenails next? We sure hope not! What do you guys think of the teeth nail beauty trend? HOT or NOT? Sound off in our comments section below!

Wow yo! I remember walking by the Mac store on 125th street coming from school, amazed at all the dope campaign ads spread across floor to ceiling windows & on other major department stores. MAC Cosmetics really inspired me because they were one of the first mainstream companies to fearlessly and unapologetically embrace woman of color and the LGBTQ Community. That was big for me being a young black girl from Harlem telling myself that one day that would be me plastered in that window! Long story short, and by the grace of God, here I am with my own up and coming capsule collection for M•A•C!!!!! ?? On that note I’m proud to officially announce my collaboration & partnership with Mac cosmetics!!! I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the MAC team and so happy the cat’s finally out the bag!! But most importantly, I’m hoping to inspire other young black women that anything and everything is possible & that our black is STUNNING!!! ? #MACteyanataylor coming July 2020!!!

We are so proud of Teyana Taylor! Just last week she revealed she is pregnant with her second child–which we already knew when her daugher Imani Shumpert, spilled the deets on her IG Live–and has a new project coming entitled, “The Album!”

We wonder if she will be getting her own line through the makeup giant, and if so what colors, shades, and mixes will be done that scream, “Teyana!” We will keep you posted as more on this story develops!

Hot? GQ’s (@GQMagazine) Showcases Men Wearing Make Up in It’s First Beauty Spread

For their November Issue, men’s magazine, GQ, decided to question the philosophy behind masculinity.

For years we have all been conditioned to associate certain things with only being for women and certain things only for men. Make up has solely been accepted as something that should only be used by women, however, recent years have seen that notion challenged. The editors at GQ decided to explore this with their men’s beauty portfolio, which showcased the history of men wearing make up. Those glam rock days of the 70’s, when rock stars carelessly flaunted faces filled with blush, eyeliner and lipstick are referenced in the spread where different men in the industry such as Luka Sabbat and eighties rock star, Billy Idol are flawlessly made up.

GQ men's make up

For their November Issue, men’s magazine, GQ, decided to question the philosophy behind masculinity.

For years we have all been conditioned to associate certain things with only being for women and certain things only for men. Make up has solely been accepted as something that should only be used by women, however, recent years have seen that notion challenged. The editors at GQ decided to explore this with their men’s beauty portfolio, which showcased the history of men wearing make up. Those glam rock days of the 70’s, when rock stars carelessly flaunted faces filled with blush, eyeliner and lipstick are referenced in the spread where different men in the industry such as Luka Sabbat and eighties rock star, Billy Idol are flawlessly made up.

GQ men's make up

Looking at this spread I can’t help asking myself exactly when did makeup become just a girl thing? Anyone who’s taken history in school knows that makeup hasn’t always been for women. In ancient Egypt, men commonly used kohl eyeliner to exaggerate the shape of the eyes and eyebrows. This was to show wealth and status as well as to show their masculinity. Certain colors of eye-shadow was used to ward off illnesses and spirits.  In places like Ancient Rome and England, men used white powder to give the appearance of a fairer complections.  The first century saw men applying red pigment to their cheeks and even painting their fingernails.  Fast forwarding to the 1980’s when David Bowie and Boy George reigned supreme, it’s interesting to see how much men wearing make up had been socially accepted. The end of the eighties, however, saw men trading make up for a more understated social norm. Men were no longer taking those risks and the art form died with the trend. In the last couple of years, fashion houses such as Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana created cosmetics lines targeted specifically towards men.

GQ Men's Make Up

Could all of this be a precursor for a bigger movement? Will men wearing make up be completely normal 100 years from now? New trends pop up everyday, however, old habits die hard. Even though I myself personally, am not a make up person, I don’t mind a little concealer for those days when the circles under my eyes match my roots. It would be nice to look forward to a future of true gender neutrality, however, it’s hard to say whether or not men will learn to put their macho pride to the side long enough to embrace something new. Accepted or not, the conversation about masculinity needs to be had. A little eyeliner here or a little concealer there shouldn’t be what defines your “masculinity”. That word is a state of mind that can’t be wiped away with the stroke of a make up brush.
