Unpopular Opinion: Stop Telling Me Oily Lids Are Cool

For the past few years, I’ve felt uniquely—nay, bizarrely—suited to nearly every beauty trend to hit It girls everywhere. Bushy brows? Great; I’ve been trying to tame my Italian hairs since middle school. Unkempt bedhead? I used to just call it “knotted,” but I’m here for it. Butts? Another of-the-moment attribute I can—ahem—get behind.

So as I witnessed the spring 2018 runways and realized that, once again, high-shine makeup dominated fashion week for designers like Victoria Beckham, Vivienne Tam, and Jason Wu, I should have felt my usual mixture of bemusement and relief. To be honest, though, my feelings are more complicated.
