L’Oreal Collagen Mascara.

Destroyed my lashes. Lipocils helped nurture them back to their original length and fullness, however.

I remember when I first got into makeup I bought electric eel by mac (really bright electric blue) and I really didn’t know much about blending or the fact wearing that color alone is a RISK. I was young and thought I was being awesome and bold. here’s the painful part… ya ready…? I wore electric eel all over my lid, in my crease and a little bit towards my brow bone….I’m cringing and laughing as I type this!!! I can only imagine what people thought!

Ugh, I make them too often. Wrong eyeshadow placement or really the worst, coral lipstick. No oranges should ever be on my face lol

i hear ya on the coral lipstick. i have a couple because i thought they were so pretty in the tubes and on other people…. but not on my fair skin….no way. lol. way too orange. felt like a clown almost. lol

I remember buying my first lipstick: Maybelline, espresso maybe? A brown. I was around 13-14 I guess, and I remember i wearing it on my way home from the shop…(not to school, at least). I got a few glances- now i know why. Brown is so aging, especially on a kid lol…I still have a hard time wearing bolder neautral toned lips. It’s just not me.

I think it was a 90s thing!! I was watching old school 90210 over the weekend and all the girls were rcoking it. I totally did that in middle school, not even a nude lipstick, but straight up BROWN. The browner the better. *shudder*

i wore purple lipstick once in middle school. my teacher thought it was the coolest thing and wanted the female principal to see it, too..yaa. she made me wash it off. :-/

When I was in late high school/early college..I thought that if I put lip liner above my natural line, that it would make my upper lip look bigger. After a few photos and a few months..I stopped. Lol.

Not having groomed eyebrows and trying to pull off bold eye make up . . . bad bad idea. Or avoiding foundation for a long time because I could never find a good match. Why did I wait so long to visit a MAC counter?!

Dying my hair red but not doing anything to my dirty ash blonde eyebrows. Although it’s not as bad as the girl I used to know that would put hair gel in her brows…the flaky kind!

my concealer was too bright.. ughh i thought it was my color but one of my friend told me why your face is so white? LOL

Not wearing anything btu eye makeup.

Also, when I was young, I had no idea how to arch my eyebrows, and no one could tell me, so I plucked from the top of the arch, instead of from the bottom(my mom HATED anything I did to fuss over my appearance)

Shaving my eyebrows in the 4th grade and filling them with a pen instead of an eyebrow pencil! Hey I was fascinated by those magazine ads with pretty shaped eyebrows and wanted mine to look nice and shaped.

when i was 12 and “just getting into makeup” i thought it was totally acceptable to ring my eyes with lots of thick black liner and a ton of mascara. no blush, no lip product, just the black black liner. it was really not cute.

i was plucking my eyebrows and couldnt get them the way i wanted so i kept plucking and before i knew it i had no eyebrows.

yeah this was me too….started doing it at around 12 and by 16, had killed the root. i’m 28 now and eventually had them tattooed!

For me, it would probably having too dark of eyebrows (shading) and then maybe not getting my liner all the way to the end of my lashline!

Once i forgot to apply mascara. but i had full eye makeup. that looks really bad.

in my early teens, i tried light blue eyeshadow…really big mistake.
