When your Eye Makeup is just not Cutting It
As Katy Perry once said in a momentous interview, ‘You see someone that you know, and they ask you how you are, and you just have to say that you’re fine, when you’re not really fine.’ That is exactly how we feel every time we mess up our favourite smokey eye.
When You Have Got Something In Your Teeth And You Don’t Know
Whether it is lipstick or food that is stuck on your teeth, we can all agree that all we wish for is for someone to just tell us!
When You Rub Your Eyes But Forgot You Had Mascara On
After a long day, sometimes all you need is a good eye rub to keep those tired eyes awake…. and there goes your mascara.
…Or that moment when you are touching up your makeup in public and you sneeze
Among all the times you have to sneeze, it happens the moment you are putting on your mascara or trying to perfect your wing. Oh, the tragedy is real.
That Moment Your Makeup Melts Off In The Club
One moment you are jumping and bopping to your favourite Drake tune with your gang. The next thing you know, your makeup look goes from 100 to 0 real quick.
When You Take A Selfie And Your Double Chin Is Showing
We can all relate to that awkward moment when you take a cute group selfie and everybody is looking .. and there you are with that unflattering double chin.
When The Sweat Stains Take Over
Imagine this: you are going to meet your eye candy and you have got your makeup looking on point… basically you are feeling it with your look. You can say goodbye to all of that the moment the sun hits you and the sweat stains start to appear.
When You Forget to Blend Your Makeup Out
Streaky foundation, harsh contour lines, we have been there done that. Sometimes, you are in a rush and you just forgot to use your favourite Beautyblender to blend out your cream contour or your foundation. You can only imagine the horror the moment you step out of the house.
When You Try To Do That Quick Eyeliner Fix and It Just Doesn’t Work Out
Eyeliners can be a real pain at times, especially if you do not have the steady hands of a surgeon. Maybe you are sitting in the Grab and you just cannot get a hold of that perfect wing, or maybe it is just your unsteady hands to blame.
When Your Foundation Just Won’t Cooperate
Like fruits, foundations oxidise too. This happens over the course of the day when your foundation starts turning a shade or two darker. That is why we swear by primers and setting powders to keep your foundation looking like an orange mess.
When Your Eyebrows Are Anything But #OnFleek
On fleek brows are not always the easiest thing to achieve. Although we know that eyebrows are sisters and not twins, at least all we wish for is for our brows to stop looking too angry or cartoony.
But You Know What? That Is Perfectly Okay.
Let’s face it, we have all met with troubling beauty moments that can seem like it will ruin us for decades. However, we are human, so it is inevitable that we tend to slip up! Even Queen Bey or Cara Delevinge slip up too, so why not let’s start embracing all these unglamorous moments? After all, one tiny mishap does not define your beauty.
