With Halloween just around the corner, it got us thinking of all the truly terrifying things that happen to us beauty obsessives on a daily basis. Here are CODE’s 18 worst beauty nightmares:
1. Sneezing after you just applied your mascara... (but we’ve got your back, as CODE VLM is tearproof so it won’t budge with a sneeze ;-)
2. Spending forever getting glitter eyeshadow to look cute, only to have glitter all over your face within 10 minutes
3. Shattered palettes make us feel like our hearts just shattered #RIP
4. The words “out of stock”
5. Getting winged liner even. If you can do this first attempt, we salute you 🙌🏻
6. Noticing lipstick on your teeth when you’ve just been talking to a hottie in Starbucks #fail 🙈
7. Trying to apply false lashes to your other eye and having a tantrum when they just don’t go your way. ‘Go without me, I’m too stressed to enjoy myself now anyway’ (That’s why we created CODE FFL Forget Fake Lashes, you’re welcome) 👏🏻
8. Going into a makeup department and picking up the same lipstick you already own 15 times
9. Shopping in a busy retail store on a Saturday 🙈
10. A limited edition palette coming out a week before payday- WHY 💁🏻
11. Realising your makeup collection is worth more than your house
12. When you've stayed up to watch your fave programme and about to hit the pillow when you realise you still need to remove your makeup 😤
13. Leaving the house and forgetting to draw on your eyebrows
14. When someone with bad make-up gives you make-up advice ✋🏻
15. When you've spent over an hour on your eyeshadow and poke yourself with the mascara wand...
16. The moment you think you see a spider but actually it’s just some old fake lashes
17. When your night out gets cancelled but you just spent 3 hours and approx £35 worth of makeup on your face...
18. When your can’t live without item is discontinued
