Ayshe from Discovering Beauty
The first one was when I went to an event and a few hours before had attempted to apply false lashes. I thought all was going well but throughout the event I could see people looking at my eyes in particular but didn’t think much of it. It was only when I went to the bathroom later that I could see one of my eyelashes was half off and flapping around! I had no idea and I thought they felt funny, but I also thought that was normal too!
My second story is one of my attempts to do fake tan. I applied it all over one night, waited for it to dry and went to bed, laying my face on my hands. I woke up in the morning to find a round dark patch of tanned skin on my cheek where I must have transferred some of the fake tan. I spent ages trying to scrub it off and then covering my face with heavy makeup to try and even my colour out. Luckily it faded pretty quickly!

Hot mess beauty story: not only did I have pumpkin face from foundation when I was in Junior High, but no one told me and I wore it for a year.
Caity from Moi Contre La Vie
My funny fashion story was just too good not to share. I was a tomboy when I moved to Italy at the age of 21 and became a bonafide fashionista while I was there and spent 9 months shopping! I bought my very first mini skirt when I was living in Rome and when I wore it the next day, the wind blew the skirt up as I was crossing Ponte Sant’Angelo and I had a full-on Marilyn Monroe moment in front of dozens of tourists!

I once coloured my hair blue then went swimming and it turned green It took me nearly a week to wash it all out.
Brigitte from Color Me So Crazy
I was about to give a presentation to about 150 college students when I happened to look down and notice I missed a whole section of my leg while shaving. No big deal, you say?? Well I was presenting in front of a window… in a pencil skirt. I am pretty sure all those fraternity boys saw my line of hair gleaming in the sunlight – great!

I got out of the toilet and left the back of my dress attached to my underwear. A stranger caught me and told me. I wanted to disappear!

Walking around all day with a split in my trousers, showing the world my derrière.
Priti from The Awesome Sisters
I left the house and later realised that I was wearing different earrings in both ears! #embarrassing
Sinead from @Sineadjdesmond
Once I was in a restaurant and posing for a photo but my hair was down and I didn’t realise where I was leaning and managed to burn a chunk of it on a candle. I didn’t want to cut the rest of my hair shorter so I had to go around with that uneven patch until it grew out! I also accidentally got too close to a Bunsen burner in a science class once and singed off the majority of my eyelashes on one eye. I had uneven eyelashes for ages! I need to stay away from fire!
