 Yes,  the Nursing Profession used to have " rules " at the hospital where I worked  reagrding uniform attire and personal grooming . It included short cut fingernails , hair pulled back  or short hair and no  long earrings . Hospitals  are lax now , you see where anything goes . It's not just  the Nursing assistants/ techs  , it's the  Registered  Nurses  to .   I wouldn't let anyone touch me with long finger nails , they can carry  C Difficile spores,  E Coli , staph, fungus,  and numerous other bacteria including antibiotic resistant  strains. . That's the last thing I would want to happen to me or anyone. Patients  do die of Hospital aquired  infections.

The deep Smokey Eye....sure, its great for a cocktail party or other formal affair....but for everyday....I prefer a more natural look on the eyes. Harsh eyebrows....matte lipstick...spidery false lashes....spotlight highlighter....they all have their time and place....but IMHO, not for everyday.

@FlowerBear   I worked with and for Bobbi Brown for so long and fell in love with that "natural makeup...enhance your features and still look like you" philosophy. I've tweaked it a bit over the years, but haven't strayed too far. When you begin working with her (representing her brand), she'd like you to have that look.

 

She did a face chart w/ my colors from foundation, concealer, shadow, lips, etc. Except for products/shades that have been discontinued (& I found similar ones in other lines), that's still my look. I switched from powder blush to cream blush and stay w/ her tinted moisturizer (foundation stick where more coverage is needed). 

Bobbi believes in playing up your features, so I played up my clear fair skin, left my thick brows alone and learned that having fair skin is OK. It's made my makeup life easier figuring all this out. 

It's accepting who you are and being comfortable with that....not trying to look like anyone else. No trends needed.


 

Bobbi Brown takes all of the fun out of makeup and turns it into a chore, IMO. 

 

Adhering to someone else's rules will never make me feel more comfortable in my own skin than doing what I want to does.

No, I haven't.  Is it like a stain?  I have tried some of those stains and they still feather on me.  Thank you for the suggestion.

Re: Beauty trends you wish would go away in 2020!

I agree with most comments above, and I second the over-shiny, too bright highlighting on cheekbones and under brows.  Plus the dark, over-done brows and fake eyelashes.  Just my opinion, but too much makeup and heavy contouring makes women look older than they are.

The smokey eye and all orange eyeshadow. Really, IMO no one looks good with orange or red eyeshadow.
