I think during the Annual day Ceremony where i learnt for the 1st time about "foundation" and applied it without knowing what was the right amount. So when i went to perform my Dance, i looked more of the ghost with scanty makeup and bright pink lipstick to add the effects....Hahaha Biggest Fashion faux-pas.

Hi Neelofer :)

When you were in school, what was your biggest make-up faux pas?
I think my biggest faux pas would be not to use waterproof eyeliner when I first started using makeup. It would be sad and funny when I'd rub my eyes and begin to look like a panda. But today, I've learned my lesson and panda eyes no more.

When I was in school, my biggest make-up faux pas was not putting foundation or compact powder all over my neck as well, so I'd usually end up having a much whiter face! Also, I never used to check my makeup in natural light, so I wouldn't notice that I was 'over-blushed'...and not natural at all! Another thing was rubbing foundation over my eyebrows, which is a mistake I still do sometimes today when I'm really in a hurry and regret every time I do so, as it looks untidy and like I don't have any eyebrows on pictures that use flash! Haha! :p

while in school my biggest make up faux pas would be using dark lipstick during school occasions which would make me look very scary and darken my complexion.

During school times I was always fascinated by aunts make up which was imported. Once when she was not around I picked up couple of her makeup items (lipstick, blush & eye shadows) & took them to my school to use them & show off my friends. someone stole the eye shadow kit from my bag, only for me to be punished by my aunt, who wouldn't talk to me for years.

When you were in school, what was your biggest make-up faux pas?

When I'm in school days I don't have any make up item. But am so crazy about it. It was a class photo day while I was in 5th standard. so before the photo shoot I went to the wash room and used the red sketch pen as lipstick and black sketch pen for eyes. Really looked weird in it..ha ha ha. Even I have used many different color sketch pens for nails. :)

Thanks.

it was like i was in 9th standard and hardly i apply any make up.So just for a change i thought to impress all,so i applied powder and foundation cream even.
But alas,as soon as i entered the class all the batch mates specially the boys started making fun of me telling i have applied 6 inch paint on my face.tat day i really weird appearance and sadness filled in my heart.that taught me a lesson on how to apply the correct make up suitable for my face.Now i feel i should thank my frenz for it.

nilofar azeez said...

When I was in school, my biggest make-up faux pas was actually the most embarrassing moment. I got my 1st makeup kit when i was in 5th grade. Like every girl I was so excited. Excitement in applying makeup for 1st time has ended up wearing tons of makeup especially pink blush for a friend sister's wedding. I still remember the comment I have got. One of senior school has called me clown with background of many laughing at me :(
so my biggest makeup faux pas has ended as most embarrassing moment. And i still hate that girl :@

I didn't actually start wearing make-up until Uni! My biggest faux pas then was the black eyeliner on the inside of the eye lid. It made my eyes look smaller and it always smudged lol.

My biggest makeup mistake in school was putting face powder on my face and not blending it properly. Once a school guy commented on that and I was so ashamed that I got put off by makeup for some time. Now I always research any makeup item and how to apply it before actually applying it.

There was this one time when I was in 8th grade, I used my mommy's waterproof mascara few hours before going to the school. I didn't recognize it was waterproof & I tried taking it off as soon I realized that! But it was too late; My bus was down stairs already!
At class my teacher asked me If I wore mascara, as soon as she asked that question I told myself that 'this day isn't gonna end well." But it did! It did end well! I told my teacher that I put some water in my eyes because I was too sleepy, & then she minded her own business the whole day! LOL!

my biggest make up faux has a little something to do with lipsticks.i love love them since they have so many colours.unfortunately in school i was not the best person at putting it.ofcourse i did not know what a lipliner was at that time(now i know how essential it is) so my lipstick used to smudge the whole time and i have had the class laugh at me hysterically till one of them gave me the mirror and i really looked like the joker at that point(no offense to him) so girls always keep a lipliner in your bag.you never know when you need it:)

For some occasions marriage or party only use lipstick and Kajal it's only makeup for me. That's why today also i am using only lip gloss or lipstick.

Seeing my face in the mirror it is fine but when I saw my JS prom photos... OMG! I looked like a ghost, my face was so white. It so embarrassing, maybe my date that night was to disappointed that his date is not pretty enough. because he didn't dance with me that night :( aheheheh! but it's fine i had so much fun with my friends <3

I still remember the time when I was in school in 2nd standard. I used to get very much fascinated by amazing make up wored by beautiful women. I was not able to differentiate between the eyeshadow, blusher and lipstic. I used to grab my Moms lipstic (of course when she was busy in her daily household work) and I used to think I have to apply lipstic with fingure and just smudge it on eyes thats how I used to apply eyeshadow and same way I just used to take lipstip on my fingure by rubbing little bit of lipstic on cheeks. I used to look like cute Joker. People use to laugh at me. I still have one of the photo and whoever sees it cant stop laughing at it. You can imagine the make done entirely with only lipstik (you can say 1 lipstick is eyeshadow + lipstic + blusher) hhahahahahah.........

When I first started out with make up, I was in I think middle school, I wore the THICKEST eyeliner on the top of my eye.. people always told me it looked like eyeshadow. I don't know what I was thinking. Also, I didn't really understand eyeshadow. I would wear this light neutral tone on my lids when I had on a darker shirt and when I had on a lighter shirt like pink, I'd wear this bright, frosty, glittery lilac color lol....

With the Foundations too I used to Mess up by applying Toooo much as I used to think that the More I apply the more I will Look Beautiful !! I remember this real Funny Incident where we had a Function At Night in the School and I Put Soo Much foundation that One of the Lil Kid Saw me and started Shouting GHOST GHOST and Ran away ...

Once I saw these real cool colorful Markers with my Friend I thought them to be the Cosmetic Pencils Used on Eyes and Lips and i asked her if I can take them Home with me for one day and she agreed ... that day I was to attend a party at my cousins Place ... My MOTHER asked me to Get ready and gave me My Clothes and I quickly matched the colors with my Dress and Strted using them all over my face and Lips ... When My mother saw she screamed at Me and took me to the WASHROOM TO WASH THEM OFF but they were Soo Rigid they didnt come off . IN ANGER my mother Left me at Home with my Aunt and Left for the Party.. I felt terrified taht day but today when I remember this Incident it always brings a Smile to my Face that How innocent I WAS!! :)

I remember I used to Carry my Mother's Makeup to School With me all the Time Without her Knowing It !!! I was Not Properly Aware Of Where to Apply What neither Do my Friends .... Just Knwe About lipstick or Lipgloss Which my Mom used to PUT Everyday Or the Facepowder ..... I carried My Mom's Eyeliner that Day which I never saw her Putting Maybe cause she was Applying it Only Occassionally .... I THought it to Be a Lipstick, and Applied it All Over My Lips ... OMG the Way I looked and THe Girls Started Laughing AT ME tremendously ..... Haha this was the Height Of Innocence !

I was a But Maniac When It Comes to Makeup While I was In School.... AND i was Finicky too that Nobody Should Interferre Or Stop me From Doing Anything WhatSo ever... So When My teacher Told me that tomorrow is a Party And you can all Come in Party Dress and With Some makeup on I went Berserk Hearing that ... MAKEUP woowwww that would be really Great but I didnt Hear or Notice the word Some.. Heheh ..... The Other Day In the Morning when I was getting ready my Mom came in and ask me if she can Help me and I said a BIG No as I wanted to Do it all by myself... I went on Putting Every single thing even Without Knowing What and Where .... :p .. There was this Hair color in the packaging Just Like A gloss and it was a very Intense Color and was thick .. I Put it On my Lips .. then I used the eyeliner Under my eyes and Made big Lines just under my waterLine ... Haha Didnt Know what am doing but at that time I was Enjoying it !!!! And when my mom saw it she went totally crazy :D

My biggest makeup faux was: during my school time I didn't know the importance of foundation and I would apply a completely different color than my complexion.. I would also apply a lip liner on top of my lips, way out of the lip borders

My biggest makeup faux was I always pocket My mom's lipstick and wait until I got to the bathroom at school to put it on? And,I logged countless hours in front of the bathroom mirror experimenting with different colors and ways to draw on eyeliner until it hit on just the right combo.

Haha.. to sum it up mildly...
MY MAKEUP FAILS aka ARGH!
my first trials with makeup was such a big joke
slathered on so much that would almost make me choke
unflattering shades of eye liners and blushes
and lipstick on teeth during those tuition time rushes
and those photos of my moody goth phase that i now despise
was seriously infested with them horrible racoon eyes
i seriously thought i was the lipliner master
but the lipstick mismatch was such an obvious disaster
and another look that definitely was not so divine
was foundation (so rubbed in) which stopped at the jawline
all of these unfortunate incidents rush to my mind first
how am i to pick ONLY ONE thats the worst? :)

My biggest make-up faux paus in school was heavy foundation, concealer and powder which often lead to a chalky, caked-on appearance. Since the idea was to make my skin look better than it did without makeup.

actually i have a weird kinda inspiration to lip liners.in my early childhood i liked to use my colour pencils and u can imagine all the colours even black :p and nobody ever corrected me for tht lolz and the worst part is i thought only u have to line ur lips and no filling inside so i grew up to have this same thng in my mind. On my farewell day or some party at school i only made the outline of my lips considering and presenting myself in such a way tht nobody is more hipster than me :p lolz

My biggest faux pas during my school days have to be applying eyeliner & making my eyes look like a raccoon! It had more of a goth look. It took me quite a while to perfect applying liquid eyeliner in thin precise line. But thank god, I have come far along the eyemakeup process!!

My biggest makeup faux pas was when I used to use a kohl liner to line my eyes and I never knew that we could actually do the upper line,always did the lower lash line only but thank god that only lasted for a year or so.
