This Online Group Is Dedicated To Collecting Makeup Fails, And Here Are 125 Of The Worst Ones (New Pics)


From the soot-rimmed eyes of the ancient Egyptians to the lead paint worn by the Elizabethans, people have long been experimenting with cosmetics. Sometimes, however, with disappointing results. And the subreddit 'Bad MakeUp Artists' is probably the best place to explore these failures.


Created in 2017, this online community currently has 568K members constantly sharing pictures of both everyday people and celebrities, appearing in front of others with far-too-obvious fake lashes, overly defined brows, and ridiculous foundation color tones.


We've already covered the subreddit before here and here, but it has had so many new additions since our last publication that we thought there's plenty of content for an update. Continue scrolling to check it out!
