Top 3 Biggest Beauty Blunders

It's hard to pick my biggest beauty blunders throughout the years, because there have been sooo many due to always experimenting with makeup from a young age.  We can ALL learn from our mistakes though, and that certainly rings true when it comes to my makeup choices over time.  Without further ado, I found two old pictures that show my top pick(s) for the biggest blunders I've made in the past.  Of course I couldn't narrow it down to just one, so you're going to get My Top 3 Beauty Oops! 

 {#1. Pencil thin over plucked eye brows. Where did my eyes go??!
#2. Too much translucent powder - which is also obvious in 2nd photo below. Scary pale looking.}

 {#3.  Brown based lipstick.  Such an aging and unflattering lip color!}

{Present Day.  Hello eyebrow pencil, bronzer, and pink based lip color!}

Hopefully my present day shot shows that I've learned and implemented a thing or two over the past 12 years (that's how old those 2 pictures are!).  If you're interested in seeing an oldie but goodie post that shows why my #1 blunder is so wrong, check out my "power of brows" post.

Now that I've put my beauty "oops" out there, what are some of your makeup mistakes the rest of us can learn from??

I think we have all made the pencil thin brow mistake! I guess I didn't realize that brown based lipsticks are a no-no! I'm still making that mistake! Hmmm.... I'm guessing one of my biggest blunders has been foundation in the wrong shade and not blending well enough around the jawline.

Of course I think you're gorgeous in all 3 bigs but don't you love when you've learned fro those beauty mistakes? And you're braver than me, mama. I am far too afraid to post the pics of me wearing black eyeliner on my lips. Worst.thing.ever. LOL!

@thepeach-well, the brown based might certainly work for you, but personally for me, it's now a definite no no:) oh, the dreaded foundation mask line- I agree it's a huge blunder!
@B-you are so kind to say that about all 3 pics. wow, black eyeliner on the LIPS??!! that does sound pretty bad, but would love to see pictures documenting that! we all learn from our mistakes though, which is the beauty of mistakes:)
