Instagram Beauty Trends: 2016

We all know that there are a LOT of beauty trends out there that make us raise our eyebrows and say, “but who would ever wear that???” Well, I was doing some research this past weekend on the latest beauty trends (to stay updated and all that — I have a fear of missing out on new and exciting makeup trends), and I came across a couple that looked good on the models but I just couldn’t decide if the every day woman could pull it off without getting weird looks at the grocery story.
