I’m no make up expert. I’m certainly not going to start claiming I work for MAC or anything like that. However, there are some make up fails I just cannot believe actually exist. Here’s my top 8.
1. Tide lines
I know its a struggle, really epically hard work. Where does my face stop and my hair begin? Age old question. Unfortunately, if you wear a foundation that is the colour of a campfire in the moonlight you probably wont match it to your hairline.
2. Different sized eyebrows
I’ll level with you on this one, I don’t personally remember ever reading or being sat down and told eyebrows need to match. I don’t know when I learned this fact, but it was probably seeing that everyone in the world has matching eyebrows. So I cant really moan when I see someone with eyebrows that look like one is chasing it’s older brother, but I would of just thought it was common sense?
3. Spider eyelashes
Naturally, you definitely have more than 3 or 4 eyelashes, so surely the addition of mascara or false eyelashes should enhance this, rather than make it look like you have adopted two spiders and given them homes above your eyelid?
4. Scary eyeliner
If only the hoards of people using online dating sites only knew, that attracting a member of the opposite sex is as easy as painting your eyes like a panda zombie!
5. Scary lip liner
I’ll be honest, I don’t really get lip liner full stop. Most lipstick or lip gloss of a certain standard looks fine on its own, so I really don’t see why people outline it like you used to in year 6 when you had done a particularly smart piece of bubble writing.
6. Being orange
If you are wearing an orangy/yellow cardigan, and the shade matches your face, then you have probably done a little bit too much fake tan. With so many fake tan’s available on the market, even the 99p tanning wipes from Savers have evolved a bit and don’t leave you looking like an Oompa Lumpa now, so there’s no excuse girls.
7. No eyebrows at all
People with no eyebrows scare the shit out of me. Miley Cyrus scares the shit out of me. So you can imagine how much this image scared the shit out of me when it circulated in the media. I had to turn to Pinot Noir to get some sleep.
8. Fish lips
Most people with horrendous lips swear blind they have not had surgery and just have a really good lip gloss. I don’t know where these people buy these lip glosses, but I love a good old trout pout. In actual fact, I can see why copy fish, as everyone obviously finds fish attractive. I often walk round the aquarium and think ‘God I wish I was going out with that fish’
