So many colours… and you only ever use one. (Source: Supplied.)
If you’ve experienced even one of these, welcome to the club! It’s the club for women who try to look good… and have a laugh when it all inevitably goes wrong. Here are 13 beauty stuff-ups we’ve all been through — hey, at least they make life interesting, right?
1. The powder spill
The lid comes off your bronzer or eyeshadow, and everything in your makeup bag gets covered in brown, sparkly dust. As do your fingers.
2. The dry shampoo overdose
You apply too much dry shampoo, and you end up with a giant, grey spot on your hair... and it's right at the back, so you never see it until your frenemy tells you. Alternatively, you do notice, but only when you've tagged in Facebook photos where your new Cruella de Ville streak is on full display.
3. The smashed compact
One of your powder compacts falls to the ground, and it smashes into a million pieces... and it just happens to be the most expensive one you own. Cue internal screaming. But don't worry — this is one fail that can be fixed. Watch and learn. (Post continues after video.)
4. The mani cover-up
"I was desperate to cover up some awful half-chipped/half bare toes for an event. So I coloured them in with a black permanent marker before rushing out the door. Worked a charm!" - Melissa.
