Beauty Edit: My Make-up Mishaps

It's true that as beauty bloggers we try our best to make sure our make-up and outfit look meticulous, but I also know from experience, that make up mishaps do happen, so I thought, to give you all a bit of a laugh, I would reveal a few of my own.

Beauty Edit: My Make-up Mishaps
My make up doesn't always look this good lol.

Red Lipstick In Public? Bad Idea:
You all know that I'm in a bright lipstick phase at the moment, well a few months ago on a shopping trip with the girls........you can probably guess what happened. Yep I got bright red lipstick all over my teeth and someone had to tell me, in the words of Rachel Zoe "I Die". Now I always have a mirror compact & tissues to hand.

Rotating Mascara:
I was always intrigued by the new rotating mascara phenomenon, it sounded like a marvelous idea to me, until I actually tried one. So there I was one morning applying my mascara like normal, when I accidentally clicked the wand switch, into the opposition direction. It got stuck on my lashes while it was still rotating, getting mascara all over my eyes. I was so worried it had ripped out some of my eye lashes, I was lucky, this time, but needless to say I haven't used that mascara since. Rotating mascara 1 Claire 0.

Lost Contact Lens:

You probably know I'm a contact lens wearer if you read this post, and for the most part I don't have any trouble putting them in, but for some reason one particular day, I did. I accidentally (that word might be used a lot in this post, I'm bit of a klutz) dropped one, I spent ages looking for it, to no avail, so I decided to put in another one instead. For some season afterwards my eye didn't feel right, so I removed the new one to find the old one folded over right up in the edge of my eye, lol. no wonder my eye felt odd.

So those are just a few of my beauty mishaps, I know there are a lot more I just can't think of them at this moment in time, which is very annoying, believe me.

I would love to know a few of your beauty mishaps?

XOXO Claire
