The year's most puzzling beauty trends, defined, by Allure magazine:
Blowtox: Injecting botox into women's scalps to curb sweating and preserve blowouts. Allure's official stance: We're sticking with dry shampoo.
Baking: A makeup technique that involves patting a thick layer of powder on top of your concealer and letting it “bake” … i.e., sit there, untouched, before tapping it away.
Strobing: A trippy new name for highlighting your face.
Multimasking: Patching together different masks to target specific areas of the face.
Clown contouring: Painting your face like a circus performer before blending the makeup into high cheekbones and bright eyes. Vlogger BellaDeLune invented the technique.
