18. Instagram makeup in general

instagram.com

"Fake lashes, highlighter, contour, huge fake brows, overdrawn lips/lip filler...It always reminds me of those pics of girls in the '80s with crimped bangs, tons of blush, and green eyeshadow. They thought they looked awesome, but now it looks just embarrassing and outdated!"

19. "Rustic" home decor

instagram.com

"I firmly believe the whole 'farmhouse' interior design trend is going to be extremely outdated. Shiplap, farm decor, rustic decor, etc. is going to look silly in a few decades."
