The biggest internet beauty trends of 2012
(How many have you tried?)
There's a difference between regular beauty trends and internet beauty trends--the latter are often better suited to pretty Pinterest photos than offline life. I'm curious: How many of the following 6 huge internet beauty trends did you actually try this year?
1. The very-big, very-high bun - It's basically a sock bun way up on the top of the head.
3. Color-dipped hair - A subset of the larger crayon-box hair trend (we've literally seen hair in every color of the rainbow in 2012).
4. Retro cat-eye makeup - This one I know many of our readers are wearing, but personally I'm still just looking and not doing.

5. Glitter gradient nails - This is another actually-wearable one; it's nail art that anyone can pull off.
6. Glitter-encrusted everything - And now for a NOT-so-wearable beauty trend ... except for the nail version, of course.

Oh, and obviously there were a TON of braid photos everywhere--milkmaid crowns, braidhawks, braidy buns, fishtails, pigtails, even heart-shaped braids--but I think we've already ODed on those by now, so I won't show you more.
So how many of these big internet beauty trends did you actually try this year (vs. just ogle and repin)? Any you plan to knock off your 2012 beauty bucket list by December 31st? Which of these trends do you love to look at but KNOW you'll never wear?
