This New Makeup Trend Literally Has Us Gagging

We’re not even a month into 2018, but we think we’ve found this year’s most WTF beauty trend.

When it comes to makeup, it seems to come down to: what ridiculous thing can we put on our faces and call it style? From LED lights to facial ornaments to glitter on anything and everything, trends seem to be all about the WTF factor.

This time, it’s bugs. Yes, BUGS. Thanks to makeup artist Jasmine Ahumada, there are now beauty looks that include actual critters! Jasmine has used all kinds of bugs/insects – ants, bees, beetles, dragonflies, and spiders, to name a few.

‼️REAL BUTTERFLY‼️ Monarch Butterfly SOURCE: Etsy shop: BicbugsLLC FUN FACTS: Monarch butterflies store a poison called Cardiac Glycosides that they had ingested by feeding on the leaves of the milkweed foliage in their larva stage. These are sometimes harmful to its vertebrate predators, but ineffective on invertebrate predators. The toxic effect on vertebrates however, depends on the level of intake. These toxins provide these butterflies with a poisonous defense against its predators such as lizards, birds, and frogs. They have a broad spectrum  perception of colors and can see even the UV light that humans cannot. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 Products Used @mehronmakeup paradise paints. @colouredcontactsuk Orange werewolf lens. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 #eyeart #facechart #eyelook #insectagram #insectporn #insectart #makeupinspo #makeupart #creativemakeup #nature #phobia #eyeshadow #eyeball #motd #faceart #triggerwarning #facepaint #editorialmakeup #avantgarde #darkart #tattooideas #macrophotography #eyemakeup #falselashes #eotd #butterfly #monarch #monarchbutterfly #artporn

‼️REAL SPIDER‼️ Chaco Golden Knee Tarantula (Molt/Exoskeleton) SOURCE: Etsy Shop: WildThingsInc FUN FACTS: Chaco golden knee tarantula is a ground-living species that burrows when he can. Although generally sweet-natured, the Chaco golden knee, like many other tarantulas, may flick irritating hairs at people when alarmed. Lifespan: Males – 5+ years, Females – 20+ years. Tarantulas have the ability to spin silk, but unlike other spiders, they do not use the silk to make webs that catch their prey. Instead, they use the silk to line their burrows and protect their eggs. 🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷 (Secret: this look was originally intended for the black widow spider I had. The look was all ready for the spider placement but the thing is that….. I DRAW THE LINE AT BLACK WIDOWS!!

While we’re always here for forward-thinking makeup creations, we’re going to have to agree with Andrea Russett on this one. Hard, hard pass!
