Bizarre Beautification

Uncommon body embellishments whet beauty consumers' appetites

Implications - Well-manicured nails, false eyelashes and colored contacts just don’t make the cut anymore. Today, bold may trump beautiful when it comes to embellishing one’s body. From diamond contact lenses to lip tattoos and studded eyebrows, beauty enhancements have been elevated to new extremes. Regardless of whether they are considered beautiful or just plain bizarre, perceptions of beauty itself may never be the same.
