Runway beauty trends you shouldn't try at home

Say no to beauty mishaps

The runway is where trends begin and style is shared with the public. While the past few seasons have seen the genesis of great beauty trends such as bold red lips, the smoky eye and strong eyebrows, there are some beauty trends you should ignore -- or straight up dismiss. Here are four runway trends that should never leave the runway.
