The Sleepover Club: Will The Rise Of Ugly Beauty Save Us All? Or Is It Another Capitalist Gimmick?

The TikTok girlies are creating makeup looks that make you look as though you're crying. Julia Fox is walking down the red carpet with grey hair, and declaring both ugly and ageing as 'in'. Trend forecasters are declaring that we're over the clean girl look, and that the next beauty trend is all about highlighting your 'imperfections' rather than concealing them. This week, Ione and Eden are discussing whether these trends are actually shifting beauty standards, who we allow to be 'ugly', whether it's ever impossible to block out the male gaze, and how we stop aspiring to beauty.
