These celebrities have proven that bad makeup can happen to the best of us. Even with their expert team of stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers, mistakes can be made, and unfortunately for them, are often captured on camera. Check out these celebrity makeup fails and learn from their mistakes!
We bet Angelina Jolie was kicking herself when she saw these photos! Angelina has recently applied light reflecting setting powder to her face, jawline and décolletage not realising it interacts with the flash! If you are attending an event where you know there will be photos taken, opt for a matte, skin toned setting powder instead.
We don’t know whose foundation Kelly Osborne is wearing but it certainly isn’t hers. Kelly has made the rookie error of applying a foundation that is totally wrong for her skin tone, and is a different color than her neck. Always check the foundation in a number of lights before committing to buy.
Leighton Meister has committed the cardinal sin of bold eyes and lips and should be a lesson to us all – some rules are not made to be broken. The colors clash with each other and the ringed purple eye shadow makes her look like she’s been punched in both eyes. All round not a good day for Leighton.
The usually flawless host of the E! network has made the mistake of going too dramatic with her makeup here. The lines are too harsh and unnatural on her face, and the highlight doesn’t blend well with her attempt at contouring.
J. Lo has made the mistake of wearing a lip lighter than her natural skin tone. When selecting a ‘nude’ lip shade, ensure that it matches, or is darker than, your natural lip. This look washes J. Lo out and makes her usually plump lips appear thin and drawn.
Nicki Minaj is well known for her kooky makeup looks but this one takes the cake. Nicki’s attempt to contour her nose to make it appear slimmer is much too obvious and is in need of blending. Contouring of your features should always be subtle!
The latina bombshell has used an under eye concealer much too light for her skin tone. This is a common mistake amongst women. You should always choose an under eye concealer one shade lighter than your foundation, being very careful to blend when applying.
Ahh, Lindsay Lohan. You can always trust this starlet to pull out some questionable looks but this bronzed mess is the worst we have seen. Lindsay has used a bronzer to contour her cheekbones that is much too dark and heavy, and has resulted in unnatural streaks along the hollows of her cheeks.
Looks like no one told Paris Hilton that she needs to apply long wear lipstick unless she wants it rubbing off on her teeth! When wearing vibrant, highly pigmented shades like red or pink, always invest in formulas that are long-lasting and stain proof.
The songstress looked uncharacteristically washed out during her appeareance on the X-Factor red carpet. The red lipstick, super pale foundation and OTT lashes were more reminiscent of a China doll than a human being.
