Applying complex makeup really does take a lot of artistic talent and patience, so naturally, people might want to hire a professional every once in a while to give them a show-stopping look. However, sometimes makeup artists leave their clients looking worse than they did when they were barefaced.
Here are women who were done dirty by makeup artists and definitely deserve a refund.
Good Thing She’ll Have These Photos Forever!
This unblended contour truly looks like someone just rubbed mud onto her cheek and gave up. It would be one thing if this was any other day, but on her wedding day? A travesty.
She Paid $350 For This
Microblading, when done right, can help someone who has little eyebrow hair or very blonde eyebrow hair rock the popular full-brow look. Unfortunately, this one was not done right at all.
I’m Pressed About The Difference Between Her Neck And Face
This woman is a Mexican politician who was holding a press conference to get information out to the people. Unfortunately, I don’t know if anyone could focus on anything other than the discrepancy between her face and neck color.
An Iconic Look
Imagine getting the contract to work with one of the most popular and financially successful makeup companies of all time and they make you look like a 5-year-old from a famous Vine meme.
This Is A Special Victim Alright
The person who posted this photo explained that they were watching Law & Order when they spotted a crime committed by the makeup artist on set. No one should ever look that orange.
The Longer You Look At It, The Worse It Is
When my eyes first glanced over this, I didn’t think it was too bad, but the longer you look at each part of her face, the worse the look gets.
That Red Lip, Classic Thing We Don’t Like
Hear me out: a red lip with a winged liner is one of the most tried-and-true, simple makeup looks of all time, and one of my personal favorites, yet this makeup artist still got it wrong enough to make me hate it.
This Is A Travesty
I can understand why this woman looks so absolutely unhappy with the world because I probably would have the same expression if someone put this monstrosity on my face and I had to wear it in public.
I Don’t Even Know What To Say About This
I’ve been looking at this eyeshadow for a few minutes and I still have nothing to say. The lack of blending is terrifying. The shape of the whole thing is so wrong.
It Looks Like A Mask
This truly looks like someone just painted a horrible orange mask onto the face of this woman and shoved her on screen. The distance between the foundation and her hairline is preposterous.
Movember, But Make It Shiny
Adding a little highlight to a client’s upper lip can really make your lipstick color pop. Adding a little too much highlight to a client’s upper lip gives them a shiny mustache.
The Table Top Is Right There
I understand that doing someone’s makeup can be a two-hand job at times, but I definitely think it’s not industry standard to use the client’s forehead as an impromptu shelf.
Looks More Raccoon Like For Me
This woman paid $75 to get her makeup done by a woman in order to achieve a “goth” look only to end up looking like she was impersonating a panda.
At Least It Was Free
This woman went to Sephora and used her customer loyalty benefits to get a free makeup session with an in-store artist only to leave looking like this. At least she had nowhere to be immediately after.
It’s Like Day And Night
On the phone is the photo that this woman showed the makeup artist for what she wanted done. On her face is what the makeup artist did to replicate the photo. Spot the difference.
It Looks Like Peanut Butter
As someone who has bought far too many foundations that weren’t quite the right shade, I know the struggle of getting the right color, but this is like the artist didn’t even try.
There Is Such Thing As Too Much Bronzer
I love bronzer as much as the next girl, but I have to admit that there is such thing as putting too much on. The same goes for using highlighter.
Her Skin Looks Like It’s Melting
A makeup look could be otherwise pretty decent-looking, but if the mascara is too clumpy or the foundation is layered on too thickly, there’s no coming back from it.
Even The Kardashians Aren’t Immune
You’d think that having all the money in the world would allow you to hire a makeup artist who knew how to match foundation to a client’s skin color, but apparently not.
However, We Still Tend To Be Our Worst Enemies
While the occasional makeup artist might butcher a look, I can assure you that most are really impressive and would never do your brows the way this woman did to herself.
