Latest bizarre Instagram trend sees people giving themselves temporary 'nose jobs'

Over the years, we've seen plenty of bizarre trends spring up on Instagram; usually as a result of bored beauty bloggers trying to make their snaps look more interesting, shocking, or just plain weird. A few of them have impressed us with their technical skills, while others just make us ask why anyone would bother. But the latest Instagram trend is probably the most bizarre yet: and involves the subjects faking a nose job for the sake of those sweet, sweet likes.

The temporary nose job trend allegedly originates from Chinese social media, where beauticians are apparently sculpting their faces and making elaborate fake noses with special effects wax, before removing the plastic noses in front of the camera. I suppose it's just taking the whole 'makeup removal video' fad to its natural conclusion. Scroll down to check out some of the best examples we could find online.
