Like most people, my foundation didn't match my skin tone, or even my skin colour. Being pale meant that i was either yellow or orange for at least three years.
Bright blue eyeshadow applied with my thumbs was my signature look
Now i love mascara, i have long lashes (thanks mum) and love to make them one of my main features, but i took this to the limit when i was younger. I would apply at least five coats. Dry, spidery and clumped lashes. I remember my mum telling me i was putting on too much and would think "i know better than her". No Chelsea, no you did not.
I used to use a cream blush, I'd smile and then literally draw two circles on my cheeks. I can't even imagine how bad that must of looked. Definite cringe.
I remember i got my first concealer stick in a magazine. I remember thinking this was foundation, which led me to literally draw and cover the stuff all over my face. No blending. No brush. I was an oompaloompa.
Now i know your lying if you have never taken your dads razor to your eyebrows because plucking hurt too much. I know i did.
I used to fake tan..a lot. I don't know why it didn't occur to me to apply it to the backs of my legs, but it didn't. So from the front i was orange and from the back i was pale. Again, my mum tried to warn me but did i listen? Nope.
Foundation lips anyone?
Thankfully that's all i can think of for now!
I'd love to read your old bad makeup habits as this was pretty fun to write, so let me know!
