Women are getting overly obsessed over their beauty, and are ready to cross the dangerous milestones, too. But, going that extra mile can cost much at times. An appalling video has recently surfaced showing a woman curling her eyelashes using a wooden stick and fire.
Take a look!
"This is a quick tutorial on how to curl hard to curl eyelashes such as mine - I have pretty stubby curl-resistant eyelashes and they usually droop. This method actually does work!" She heated up the wooden rod with a lighter and placed it over her eyelashes to curl her mascara clad eyelashes. "I would be really careful with this because it is wood and you will be using a lighter", she then said.
"If you have clumpy eye lashes, the heat from the stick does take that away...this lasts all day long and before they wouldn't." She isn't the only one going this far to look agreeable. Femail has gathered up some other extreme beauty trends that showed up last year.
In the wake of Kylie Jenner's plump and full lips, her die-hard fans used Instagram to put up their pictures mimicking her look. Numerous of those fans did their lips by sucking into shot glasses and water bottles until their lips went.
Many companies have since then released 'pout-creating' devices of their own under the influence of this madness. Well, people took it too seriously! Some who were not that fortunate, had to be rushed to the hospital as their lips bruised.
2015 was much about fire-based beauty trends. This another one is to remove the split ends using fire. Brace yourself!
Velaterapia, the technique was made famous by Brazilian model Barbara Fialbo, and involves direct impact on the hair by an open flame. This is too much, literally!
While the technique is successful, but people following the trend at home, is the risky part.
This trend has been gearing up throughout the year - making a makeup with Crayola crayons and colored pencils. It involves, melting the crayons with warm coconut oil, and then applying it n the skin.
Although many people have confirmed the fantastic results of this technique online, but the chemicals in the 'non-toxic' crayons are still not to be fully trusted.
Since when it was started by the Kardashians, this trend has been sky-rocketing. Thousands of images of people and celebs are throbbing the internet flaunting their unique waist training corsets.
Even this one comes with its own inherent security risks. Some women have complained of broken ribs and breathing problems. Experts believe that this may lead to displaced organs and internal bleeding.
People who have been to a Halloween party know about the colorful contact lenses, to pair up with a dress. But these can potentially damage the eyesight permanently or might cause serious infections.
