5 Makeup Faux Pas We’ve All Made

No matter how well-versed we are in the ways of beauty, we've all made these five common mistakes once or twice…

Overdrawn Brows. We love a good eyebrow pencil or powder, but there's a finely drawn line between bold brows and something totally over-the-top. Angelina Jolie's beauty game has been on point for years, but even she fell victim to seriously overdone brows back in 2002.

Too Much Eyeliner. Unlike Taylor Momsen, we've long since grown out of this phase, but we don't know of a single middle school-aged girl who was spared from the panda-eyes plight.

Errant Lipstick. Lipstick teeth happens to the best of us—even Emma Watson. With pigmented lip colors, there's so much that could go wrong, and stained teeth is only one of the possibilities. This is the reason we keep a compact mirror on us at all times.

Spidery Lashes. The too-much-of-a-good-thing struggle is real, especially when it comes to mascara. As Zooey Deschanel knows, it's all too easy to get overzealous with the mascara wand and end up with clumpy Daddy longlegs lashes. Not good.

Unblended Foundation. There are so many variables that can contribute to your face makeup not matching the rest of your body, but in Drew Barrymore's case, it's a lethal combination of too-light foundation and heavy-handed bronzer. Avert the crisis by checking your new foundation in natural lighting before heading out of the store, and always remember to blend down your neck for a seamless finish.
