This person did not really need to get a makeover. She’s a talented makeup artist herself. But for a special occasion, she decided to go to an MUA as a treat. It cost about sixty bucks and look what she got!
She was so upset she could barely type. Those eyelids are like two stainless lids, like the Tinman in “The Wizard of Oz.” To top it off, the brows are uneven.
Looking at this Instagram image, it’s easy to point out makeup fails. The blush is painted on thickly with obvious lines and no effort at blending. Her eyeshadow is all-one-color and brushed on as chunky as the blush.
It is so obviously bad, it’s like a joke. And it is. The kids find it funny. We suppose everyone would find it funny.
Great work with the razor-sharp eyeliner. Horrible work with the AKG-like eyebrows. Eyebrows are on our faces for a reason. Primarily, they are useful for catching dust before it gets into our eyes. But they are also a big part of facial expressions, showing anger, fear, happiness, or anxiety.
Raised eyebrows show surprise. So many emotions are expressed through eyebrows. Here, these crazy-wavy brows give the impression of perpetual worry.
This glittery rainbow is, um, colorful. Right? it is blended magnificently, considering all of those dissimilar shades, until the ear, then it misses. Overall, it’s a very cheery canvas with hot pink blending into golden sunshine yellow, finished in turquoise blues.
Yet, like a rainbow implosion, you can’t stop staring at it. It’s like a natural disaster. You can’t look away.
In this example of bad makeup, there are plenty of problems, but let’s focus on the eye makeup for now. Black eyeliner is heavy-handedly applied against a fair complexion by a rookie hand.
The real mess, however, is the gold color that is splotched on with perhaps a makeup sponge, randomly, here and there, around her eyes. Personally, we would have gone with something pink to match her hair.
