13 Beauty Mishaps Every Girl Has Faced At Some Point…

We’ve all been there. That awkward ‘ground swallow you up’ moment when beauty goes wrong, from over-tweezing your eyebrows to making the rash decision to cut your hair super short (it was such a GREAT idea until your beautiful locks fell to the floor). Yes, we wanted to cover our heads with a paper bag at the time – but it’s all in the past. That’s until a little reminder in the form of photographic evidence rears its (ugly) head.

Here are 13 beauty mishaps most women have faced…

1. Blow drying your hair, then walking outside to discover torrential rain

12. Applying too much powder = cake face

13. And not forgetting that time your straighteners broke, so you decided to iron your hair
