Makeup DON'TS!!!!!


What better to do on this lovely Sunday morning? 

Lately I've seen a couple makeup pet peeve videos on YouTube and I thought it would be fun to do my own version!  This was done for laughs, so don't be offended if any apply to you!

I had a little epiphany this morning while applying this gorgeous masterpiece... about 90% of my makeup "don'ts" were/are trends taken to the extreme -- i.e. full brows, Kim K under eye highlight, etc.

Please disregard my messy hair... I didn't think it was necessary to style it with a face full of makeup like that!  Anywho, I hope you enjoy!!

1. Foundation that is too dark -- Need I elaborate?

2. Using bronzer all over your face -- Sorry Jersey girls!

3. Concealer that is too light on blemishes --  This will only highlight the problem. Try using a shade the same color or slightly darker than your skin.

4. An extremely light concealer under your eyes (Kim Kardashian highlight) -- Even when done correctly I'm not a fan of this. I think in ten years people will look back and say, "What was I thinking?!"

5. Unblended, overly dramatic contouring. -- Leave crazy contouring up to drag queens.

6. Blush applied only to the "apples" of your cheeks -- Unless you plan on frequenting children's birthday parties.

7. Drawing on a fake mole -- Your only excuse would be dressing up as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween, otherwise please avoid this at all costs!

8. Very uneven eyebrows -- eyebrows are never completely symmetrical in nature, but at least attempt to make them look like they belong on the same human.

9. "Scouse brows" -- This is a term used in the UK, but basically it means crazy overdrawn eyebrows.

10. Overly arched/extended brows -- put down the eyebrow pencil... and walk away slowly...

11. Liquid liner on the bottom lash line -- I can't imagine what would make someone think that this looks nice, but I'm here to tell you that it doesn't!

12. Eye liner applied ONLY to the bottom lash line -- this is typically a middle schooler rookie mistake, but it looks horrid at any age.

13. Haphazardly applied false lashes -- unless you're going for a "I just smoked crack" kind of look.

14. False bottom lashes -- leave this up to editorial photo shoots, I beg you! 

15. Overly frosty brow bone highlight -- this looks like something straight out of the 80's, and NOT in a good way!

16. Bright, unblended, heinous, two toned eyeshadow -- another trend that has gone to the dark side...

17. Eyeshadow fallout --  this is what man created makeup wipes for!

18. Concealer lips -- this is NEVER a good look... EVER!

19. Brown lip liner -- the 90's called and they want their lip liner back!

20. Making the duckface -- I know this isn't makeup, but it needs to stop asap!

What are your makeup pet peeves?


  1. Haha, that's awful. I know a few people who think their makeup looks nice like that unfortunately.

    1. And there's no easy way to tell someone their makeup looks... well... awful!

  2. Haha i love this post! So funny. I hate all of the above but the worst has to be concealer lips!!


    1. Lol, concealer lips or liquid liner on the bottom lashes are the worst to me!

  3. Ha! This was a scary first post of yours to read :D Love it tho, you're right, so many people do so many of these!

    Now following :)


    1. Oh dear, LOL!! Hopefully you took a look around and saw what my typical posts look like :)

  4. Hahaha. I HATE super light concealer under the eyes too. My mother asked for me to pick out a light concealer so she could "look like Dr. Phil's wife" and I was just like NOOOOOOOOOOO!.

  5. This post cracked me up, ha!

    I'm with you on the light concealer and the frosty brow bone highlight, why can't peeps just use a light, matte shadow? I use Benefits Eye Bright on mine, it's incredibly subtle but lifts up the area.



    1. Totally agree!!! I use a matte highlight a good 95% of the time... frosty ones just look so dated to me! My current fave is MAC Blanc Type.

  6. Ha this post made me giggle! I see so many girls on nights out looking like this and I'm just like "what are they thinking?!". Lovely blog, I've just followed you on GFC and Bloglovin x
