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.
A Bad Decision
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.
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.
A Frigid Façade
Bold colors are caked on thickly in this example. The bright pastels are reminiscent of Easter morning, The smears of blue and pink are like decorated Easter eggs. But those lips.
Painted heavily in ice blue, it suddenly feels like winter has set in. She looks like she’s freezing cold during springtime. The cold never bothered her anyway? Well, maybe it should.
‘90s Bad Makeup
Even back in the ‘90s, bad makeup was funny. Here, Rachel is wearing the No. 1 eyeshadow no-no. Blue on the lids, blue on top. And it’s paired with the most common blush application fail.
This bad makeup case goes so far as to show her roots growing in. Someone as pretty as Jennifer Aniston can look ugly. This is one reason why bad makeup is hilarious.
