Women apply makeup for a variety of reasons. We apply it to feel more confident, enhance our beauty, cover blemishes, or practice the craft among several other reasons. But what happens when our execution isn’t as flawless as we think? We’d go about our day only to pass by a mirror and realise it wasn’t as on point as we’d thought.
Five of our beauticians here at Fontana Pharmacy shared some of their most embarrassing makeup mishaps.
“Sometimes I’d be smiling, and smiling with customers like everything is okay, and there’s lipstick on my teeth! It’s mostly with glosses and red lipstick.”
“I did my makeup once in very bright light, and of course I thought it was perfectly matched. I felt so confident in myself. I sometimes feel like I don’t need to look in another light to confirm if the colour is okay, and that’s a very bad thing. So I did my face and left to go on the road, and while I was on the road there was even a case where someone said to me ‘so how yuh bleach yuh face and not your neck?’. When I actually stopped to look in a mirror, there was this horrible line of demarkation by my jawline (demarkation comes from your foundation being too bright). My entire foundation application was so light it looked like I was bleaching. That was a very horrible experience.”
“Whenever I’d have my eyelashes on, walking like I’m cute then someone turns to me and says ‘oh your eyelash is lifting off’. LOL. That is embarrassing!”
“When I just started to use creams to contour, I didn’t blend it well. My boyfriend said it looked like I had a beard. I went on the road thinking my makeup was on fleek and on point. I’d noticed that some girls were looking at me and when I observed it … I realized it [my contour] was very harsh. I tried it recently and now it’s hot because I’m more experienced in makeup. Using a sponge won’t work with this, the brush is better.”
“My cream foundation shifted ! It legit moved ! It just looked horrible. There were little spots of foundation all over my face and that’s not how I left the house. The time it took for me to leave the house and get to work it moved. I looked in the mirror, and I could see my actual skin at the crease/corner of my nose. There was no foundation at the corner of my nose ! I never wore it ever again. The palette is still there.”
