    Your last beauty mistake: gah, my eyebrows being too dark or the wrong shade, since they are so blonde I have to fill them in all the time.

    Your last beauty faux pas: Probably a shiny t-zone
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: Sure, I just told my coworker she had lipstick on her teeth – if you are friendly about it they know you are just looking out for them!

  7. Kathleen

    Most common Mistake: using a exfoliate itself as the cleanser instead of first cleaning your skin THEN exfoliate.

    Your last beauty faux pas: using harsh chemicals on my skin like Neutrogena or any of those cheap drug store brands for treating my acne concerns. Yea….I had a pizza face for two weeks.

    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: I don’t. I don’t want them to get uncomfortable or targeted.

  8. Most Common Beauty Mistake: Not protecting your skin with SPF!
    Your last beauty faux pas: Forgetting mascara! I had my whole face done except for naked lashes!
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: Only if I know them, but I want to! I usually ask my BF “should I tell her…?” and he says “you don’t even know her, just leave her alone!”

  9. ohsoshy

    1-My eyeliner is never even. One eye will be thick while the other is hardly noticeable. Or my lines aren’t straight :(

    2-My daytime eye was a little too much for work, but it would’ve looked great for a date

    3-Depends who the person is…

  10. Most Common Beauty Mistake: not properly blending foundation

    Your last beauty faux pas: un-plucked eyebrows

    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops: depends on who it is. If it’s a perfect stranger, no.

  11. mars

    Most Common Beauty Mistake(s): I’ll try to keep it too my top five

    using bronzer all over the face so you look like a muddy mess

    over/under tweezed brows

    not replacing mascara every 3 months

    using studio fix with the sponge & not changing it out every 2 weeks & leaving it on top of the powder and you wonder why you’re breaking out, seriously??

    ST Ives Apricot Scrub will tear your face apart–why not just scrub your face with broken glass?

    Your last beauty faux pas:
    I don’t really have them but one time I was wearing a red prolongwear and eating chicken wings and my sister didn’t tell me it was gone in the middle of my lip. I should’ve checked myself since people don’t seem to have the nerve to say hey you night want to fix that

    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?
    Of course, it’s my job!
    If they look like they did it on purpose, it’s harder to address but I’ve gotten very good at saying “Can I show you a different way to do…”
    If it’s something like smudged lipstick or mascara, a tag sticking out, something on their shoe or in their hair–I’m going to say something–it’d be rude not to.

  12. nikki

    Most Common Beauty Mistake: not letting my mascara dry before i put my glasses on.

    Your last beauty faux pas: not blending my foundation well enough

    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: only if i know them well. if not, no.

  13. Most Common Beauty Mistake: using foundation/powder too light for skin tone
    Your last beauty faux pas: using silvers and purples too bright for day time
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: yes if they’re my friend

  14. zipperfire

    Most Common Beauty Mistake: Overplucked brows
    Your last beauty faux pas: Bad chignon flying loose strands
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: nope

  15. Most Common Beauty Mistake: Wrong foundation
    Your last beauty faux pas: I try not to make them lol!
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: Only if its someone I know really well.

  16. Kiring Bir

    Most Common Beauty Mistake: Overplucked eyebrows / badly plucked. I can’t tell you enough how much this makes me squirm.

    Your last beauty faux pas: not blending enough. I piled on some pigment and it was not smooth at all.

    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: If you don’t know the person, then no. You never know if that person is sensitive or if they can take it badly. Basically, it’s not really your business unless they ask for your opinion. If it’s a friend, then yes, delicately mention an alternative. I once made my friend purchase an eyebrow pencil and told her to stop plucking!

  17. carriespooner

    1.Most common beauty mistake:Wrong lipstick shade. I put this up there with overplucked brows. Dark lippies age you!!

    Beauty faux pas: I’ve been biting my fingernails lately. I haven’t done that for years. :(

    Do I tell? Hmmm.. if it’s lipstick on the teeth I might give a lil gesture depending on who it is or if I’m in a Ladies Room and notice I’m more likely to tell.

    Case in point. I was at a wedding and a woman came out of the stall her dress tucked into the back of her panty hose and a huge run of TP flowing out of her hose like a train. No one said a word about that mess for 5 minutes while she fixed her makeup. Finally someone stopped her before she went out the door. She shamed each and everyone of us in the room for not telling her.

  18. HoneyBrown1976

    1. Mismatched foundation (e.g. foundation not matching skin tone)

    2. Waiting an extra week to re-wax my eyebrows!

    3. Normally, I’ll consider just how bad the mistake is prior to informing them.

  19. Fairy

    Most Common Beauty Mistake: Using the wrong foundation shade
    Your last beauty faux pas: letting my brows get a tad unruly!
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: Uhmm that’s hard! It depends who it is.

  20. Most Common Beauty Mistake: Not exfoliating lips (winter here is so harsh that so many people have chapped lips)
    Your last beauty faux pas: Unplucked brows (I’ve been meaning to go get my brows waxed but got too lazy)
    Do you tell others if they have a glaring beauty oops?: Nope. I already have a reputation of being too overbearing and forcing my ideals on others so I don’t anymore (even if I’m itching to do so and even if it’s for their own good)
