Salvaje Makeup Fails That Will Make You Miss 2019

Every makeup lover knows that achieving the perfect look is not as easy as it, well, looks. Mastering the art of makeup requires a lot of trial and error, and the internet is absolutely overflowing with evidence of the latter. For every fierce makeup success, there are a thousand makeup fails, and while 2019 has served some of the hottest, most sophisticated lewks yet, there was no shortage of highly questionable cosmetic decisions (Perhaps most questionable of all? Posting the evidence online).

Take this beautifully shaded eye with a not-so-shaded brow:

Over the past few years, eyebrows have definitely stepped into the spotlight as one of the most versatile and important elements of any look—but this brow is almost like a ghost, a mere shadow of the eyebrow it could be. It just doesn’t look quite finished, which totally throws everything off.

Or this incredibly unfortunate glitter mishap:

Perhaps somewhat distastefully, it’s been said that glitter is “the herpes of the craft world,” due to its reputation for never going away. Imagine spilling an abundance of the stuff in your eyeball—you’d be seeing sparkles in your periphery for the rest of your life. Another reason to always practice safe cosmetics and use the biodegradable kind.

Or this look, which went a little heavy on the lashes:

There is nothing wrong with a glossy, dewy shine and some sparkles, and this look is actually pretty stunning—but the lashes seem to be a bit bushier than one might wish. It’s undeniable that this girl went a bit heavy on the lashes, but we hope that she didn’t go too heavy to open her eyes . . .

Consider the neon glow of this strikingly orange contour:

Contour can definitely work wonders, but it does require a bit of blending (and, of course, a matching skin tone—so unless you are a pumpkin—or a certain, um, president—this may not be the shade for you).

Or this unsuccessfully exaggerated lip line:

It can be SO TOUGH to draw an even lip. Still, someone should have told this person that they colored outside the lines . . . more than once. Unfortunately, making your lips look plumper requires more than just adding color to the space around them. If only it were so simple.

Or this actual advertisement for makeup classes:

Judging by the unblended eyeshadow, the hastily painted lip, and the general color scheme of the photo, you might want to think twice before signing up for this class.

Or this super unfortunate nail job that you hope this person did not pay for:

Al final, we’re all human, we all make mistakes—even the most artistic nail technicians can mess up. But if you go in for a service expecting some beautiful, shiny, hot new nails and you come out with this? Never again. Te lo juro, never again.

Or this cringey nail job that you know someone *definitely* did pay for:

The thing is, you know that this manicure is exactly what this customer wanted . . . and that may be the gravest fail of all.

Or esta pobrecita, who accidentally flooded her eyes with liquid eyeliner:

This is definitely one of the least funny fails—how scary would it be to have eyeliner fill your eye and obscure your vision, especially if you are totally new to makeup?

Consider this incredibly clumpy, flaky mascara look:

After years of telling us how unseemly it is, big cosmetic companies have been trying to convince us that the clumpy eyelash look is now in style . . . but henny, we’re not fooled. This look is simply not happening, and it is never going to happen.

And 2019 wasn’t just full of poorly executed lewks—it was also a year of many makeup mishaps, like this pup who got a little too eager to try that hot new shade of lipstick:

Sometimes dogs just want to feel pretty, too, okay?

Or this baby, who never quite learned how to apply fake lashes:

It’s okay—this kid is young. There’s plenty of time to refine their cosmetic skills.

Or this baby, who mistook lip gloss for a shimmery pink eyeshadow:

Can you blame her? How can you expect this chiquitina to know the difference between different kinds of makeup before she even knows how to read?

Or this baby, who makes more than enough money to hire an adequate makeup artist (and should probably do so, considering how much he is in the public eye):

Really, if you’re devoting yourself to that bright orange shade—something that the whole world has come to identify you by—you’ve got to really commit. And although blending probably wouldn’t help too much, tbh, it would at least even out what is obviously a terrible, terrible makeup job.

This major bronze moment even Selena Gomez called a fail.

It was a 2018 moment but brought back to life in 2019 when Gomez’s absence from the met readdressed her rare makeup flub. In a post to her Instagram count. In a post to her account Gomez shared a video of herself running through a carpark in a custom Coach dress trailing behind her. She caption the video “Me when I saw my pictures from MET” followed by a shrug emoji which Gomez is pretty much an admission of fault…

This chica who admitted

“When you forget that pink stains i guess ill be wearing permanent eyeshadow for the next few days #makeupfail,” Twitter user @Almaariveraa wrote in a tweet from 2019 that was so accurate.

And the worst 2019 makeup curse of all.

Yalitza Aparicio Stars In Dior’s Women-Centric Film Series

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

In these tough times, Gucci’s latest line proves that you might be able to get a fortune out of the jeans you use as workwear in the yard. The upscale label recently launched a new line of jeans and overalls featuring a grass stain effect on their knees. But these are not your father’s cutting the lawn jeans.

The oversized pants retail for a cool $1,400 and feature large pockets and side buttons…

Users on Twitter were quick to question whether or not the new jeans were a joke by Gucci or a reflection of just how tone-deaf the high-end label is.

“How did it take so long for this to become a thing? My entire wardrobe just became more valuable!” one user tweeted in response. A second user commented, “Yeah not a Good Look!!! Wouldn’t buy those Jeans at the Thrift Store for a Dollar!!!”

It wasn’t long ago that the designer brand received criticism for selling warn-in sneakers that were “treated for an all-over distressed effect.”

The kicks were valued at $870. The brand’s description of the shoe design boasted that it was inspired by “vintage” 70s styles.

“The Screener sneakers — named for the defensive sports move — feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect,” the website explained.

Takeaway? Money sure can’t buy good taste.
