That awful moment when...

You see yourself in the lighted bathroom mirror and think:

 

"That new face cream is really working!"

 

Then you realize you haven't put your contacts in yet.  Smiley Sad

Re: That awful moment when...

I'm with you on this one!    This and the lighting in some store/restaurant restrooms is the reason I started carrying more than powder and gloss in my bag.

Re: That awful moment when...

Hotel bathrooms have the worst lighting!  Of course, I'm usually going somewhere special and I want to look my best.  Instead, I look in the mirror and gasp at the reflection!  (Do I really look like this?)  Sometimes, I'll take my portable mirror to the window just to get better light.

Re: That awful moment when...

I definitely go near the window whenever possible to do my makeup in natural light. People are 100000X more likely to see me near a window than in the bathroom lighting, so I may as well do my makeup to suit! Smiley Very Happy

Re: That awful moment when...

Car mirrors (all of them) are the worst!! I have no idea why they're so unflattering, but they just are. :-/

Re: That awful moment when...

That awful moment when you go for a winged liner look and you apply the liner to your eyes and it looks fantastic.  Then you move on to draw the wings and you draw one and it also looks fantastic.  Then you get distracted and step away from your makeup only to come back and finish your whole look except that other wing!  Then you don't realize it until you are out and about in your day.....  This has happened to me on at least two different times.  Not so fantastic...

Re: That awful moment when...

When you grab bottle of nail polish and it slips from your hands and drops and splatters all over your bathroom floor which is very expensive tile........Not a fun moment.

Re: That awful moment when...

Oh my goodness i have done that a few times. I've also spilled my nail polish remover on my moms couch! Opps!

Re: That awful moment when...

I spilled a good part of mini bottle of polish all over the cream rug in our family room.  My husband was not impressed -- we had to basically cut out the stain!

 

Now I never polish where I can't clean it up, and I haven't spilled anything again.

Re: That awful moment when...

It was a complete mess too and it was my Butter London polish at that.Smiley Sad

Re: That awful moment when...

I was inside my apartment and waiting for a package to arrive. Finally, I heard knocking sounds, quickly put on a sweater and opened the door and said hi to the ups guy but he had the weirdest look on his face. I was like ok not the friendliest ups guy on earth but who cares i got my sephora order. Then, I heard water noise still running in the restroom sink cause I forgot to shut it off all the way so i went to the restroom to shut off the water and omg looking at the mirror I had about 10 pink dots on my face and my chin from kate sommerville acne and my forehead had the origin charcoal mask that I had put on 15 minutes ago and totally forgot. I must have scared the UPS guy for a few seconds there. I was trying to look decent by putting on a sweater but my face was so not ready to be seen by strangers. Omg I was so embarrassed!!!!!!!! If only there was a hole to hide my face.

How bought when you have just applied mascara, and then you sneeze. Beautiful little black lines all around your eyes Smiley Happy.

Re: That awful moment when...

I prefer to refer to this as "panda kisses" Smiley Very Happy

Re: That awful moment when...

cute!

Re: That awful moment when...

OMG!  I just have to say I LOVE this post!  I've done most of these and I absolutely agree with the original post.  I've done my makeup and it's super gorgeous and makes my skin flawless & then I put on my glasses & fix it, lol!

Re: That awful moment when...

@mafan- I feel your painSmiley Sad and I started sitting my polish down on an old cloth and sit right there and don't move until I'm completely done and the polish has the lid on super tight.
