Thinking back on your life, or even the recent past, what was your biggest makeup faux-paux? We’ve all had them, just like bad hair days.

Mine was during high school- my first big dance to big exact. During regular school days I rarely wore makeup. A bit of mascara and lip gloss was my normal routine. However, I wanted something more dramatic for this event and decided to play up my eyes. I ended up with eyeliner rimming my upper and lower lash line; deep blue shadow across my lid and into the crease, and bright sparkly white shadow across my brow bone. I looked like a total raccoon. Looking back, the only things that really prevented me from looking totally crazy was that my glasses hid some of the effect and I thankfully didn’t slather on a deep lipstick.

Since then, I’ve taught myself and taken makeup artist classes. I wish I’d had the knowledge back then, but I actually remember that makeup look fondly. It stands out, it was silly, and I don’t regret it at all.

And now it’s your turn. Step out there a bit and share your humorous “makeup oops” moment!

What a frightful thought Jami….I guess my biggest disaster way back
when, was a eye liner that came out on the market. I swear it was made out of rubber tire. To be precise, black in color. It’s main purpose was not to rub off, and trust me it didnt. It was a black shiney tar substance, and even now when I think of it , it gives me the shivers. I am sure I looked as though I had been punched in the eyes.

Hmmm, for me, it’s not really just one booboo. It’s more like an occasional recurrence, unfortunately. I have chosen concealers and foundations that were too light for my skin. I don’t currently have that problem, as I seemed to have hit upon what works well for me. But here and there in the past, I chose stuff that made me look almost like a reverse racoon. Or ill, my face was too pale. I was sometimes in denial, trying in vain to make it work. Alas, only to try something else, eventually. Thank goodness I’ve gotten much better about choices, and look much better (in my humble opinion). 😀
