Tattoos have made a huge comeback in the last 20-30 years, and the number of tattoo parlors and brilliantly colored beings flaunting their artist’s work have been growing exponentially. Just because business is booming, though, does not mean that talent resides in everyone who picks up a tattoo machine. Like with most things in life, not all artists are created equal.
This is made evident nowhere more than the tattoo removal industry, which is raking in cash by the billions each year as people scramble their money together to get their tats removed. Whether it’s for a new job, or because their once-loved skin mural has become unappealing to them in light of the later years of maturity, people are shelling out roughly $400 bucks per square inch to erase that name or image forever.
With over 45 million people in America alone walking around with tattoos on their body, there are plenty of botched art jobs out there. Thankfully, a lot of these people still have their sense of humour and have shared pictures of their tattoo fails with us on the internet. With thousands out there to choose from, here’s 20+ photos of the most epically hilarious tattoo fails!
1. “This Guy’s Haircut”
Sometimes a tattoo is so bad that it’s actually funny. Such is the case with this guy’s crazy head tattoo covering the entire back of his skull. While it’s definitely silly, it’s also ingenious! He can change the facial expression of the brows and stache every time he trims his hair, or even grow “sideburns” for it. Though, I guess that would technically be considered backburns? Regardless, this tatt is laugh-out-loud awful!
2. “Some Guy Tried To Copy My Tattoo Artist’s Work=Nipple Tattooed On His Arm”
Just because someone else’s tattoo turned out to be a brilliant piece of body art doesn’t necessarily mean that the same image can be pulled off on you. Especially if you don’t bother tracking down the original artist. So, if you’re going to get a copycat tattoo (just don’t, btw; it throws the meaning of artwork right out of the window), make sure there aren’t any anatomical bits of the original wearer left in the drawing before you get it inked in. Otherwise, you can easily end up sporting the distinct image of someone else’s nipple on your skin.
3. “I’m Speechless”
If you’re going to go to all the bother of getting an iconic photograph tattooed on your body, make sure the artist knows how to shade and achieve symmetry in his work. This tatt looks like Marilynn just took a long trip though Zombieland and is rising from the dead, and not in a cool way so much as an “It’s so bad I can’t look away” way. The inkwork here is proof-positive that putting in the effort to locate and pay a good tattoo artist is beyond worth it in the long run!
4. “Third Into Fourth Always Gives Me Trouble.”
If you’re going to get what basically equates to a cheat-sheet tattoed on you, then you are going to want to make sure it’s displaying accurate information, first. The would-be shift-pattern inked into this kid’s wrist is one of the most epic tattoo fails of all time! Unless someone points out the error there, he’s going to be blowing A LOT of his money on transmissions (we’re assuming the tatt means he’s a die-hard fan of the stick-shifts).
5. “A FB Friend Wanted A Very Specific Tattoo, I Think The Artist Really Nailed It.”
We are really hoping that this poor chap got his money back for this botched up piece of “artwork”. On the other hand, his misfortune equates to our laughter. The tattooist is particularly good at getting those fingerpainted-by-my-toddler birds down to a T. Granted, it doesn’t hold a stick to those wispy, detailed trees in the original picture, but the idea comes across the same…Right?
6. “My Uncle’s New Tattoo. Christmas Will Be Awkward This Year.”
What are you supposed to do when you know you have the heart of an eagle, but can’t master that piercing stare? Why, you tattoo an actual eagle staring out from its lofty perch on your forehead, of course! It looks like this Reddit user’s uncle passed out around the wrong buddy, but I bet nothing gets by him now! Christmas doesn’t have to be that awkward. Just give him an eagle-feathered headdress to really set his new ink off!
7. “Happy Meal”
This is just wrong in so many ways that it’s right! Going to McDonald’s is going to give you a whole different type of feeling when you see good old Ronald dangling his happy meal in front of you from now on. We won’t even try to touch on all of the dirty innuendo’s that this tattoo drums up (more salt on your fries, anyone?). Suffice it to say, this is an epically hilarious example of why some people shouldn’t be allowed to ink their skin, and yes, we know we just ruined McD’s fries for you!
8. “This ‘Artists’ Work Comes Across My FB Feed Daily, Quite The Treasure Trove”
Have you ever found yourself wondering what Tinker Bell would look like if she was cracked out and high as a kite? Well, you can stop wondering now. With a distorted face and a missing fairy wing, we can see that hard drugs don’t seem to mix all that well with the pixie dust of mythical forest creatures. At least she waited until Peter grew up before going off the deep end. I wonder if Captain Hook is her dealer, as he controls the ports of Neverland…
9. “Spotted On The Chicago Subway. A Paw And Bow Tie Or….”
Who knew that Hello Kitty has a much naughtier side to her? This angry little kitty isn’t really fit for child viewers, so you might wanna cover up their eyes if not the person’s tattoo. Word to the wise, always ask to see an artist portfolio before giving him the go-ahead to lay down the ink. If he can’t separate paws from penises, you might want to keep looking for an artist who can, unless you’re in to that sort of thing…
10. “I’ve Got A Hunch That He Isn’t ‘Wrongfully Convicted’. Call Me Crazy But….”
Ya know, even if you are innocent of any crimes you might be summoned to court for, tattooing that you’re “wrongfully convicted” in place of where your eyebrows should be probably isn’t going to convince the judge that you’ve been wrongfully accused. In fact, seeing that this is clearly your mantra plea bargain, he’s probably going to assume the worst. Maybe next time just go with a heartfelt plea and a good lawyer? I’m sure his inmates believe him, though.
11. “Okay, Buddy, Okay”
You know you have a bad tattoo when you have to formulate an entire argument to justify why you “chose” to have it done a certain way. Like this guy who supposedly had them purposefully misspell the two bottom words of his tatt because he hadn’t “achieved” it yet. If you’re going to go about explaining your worst decisions this way, at least try to come up with an argument that makes some kind of sense. Or better yet, just don’t get the final words of the phrase added until you feel that you’ve achieved whatever it is you’re trying to boast about.
12. Must Use Joystick To Play
A lot of people get tattoos that have some sort of meaning to them personally. Others get tattoos to send a visual message to onlookers. That is exactly what this guy did. If people have any questions about his favorite pastime activity, displaying his nipple as a joystick for a gaming controller should clear that up entirely. The guy just wants his nipples to be played with.
13. “Once You Go Black..”
It’s unclear if the owner of this massive back tattoo really understands the meaning of the top phrase here. One key thing to remember when deciding to permanently ink your skin with a bold statement piece is knowing where to stop. You love Africa? That’s fantastic! A tattoo of an almost spot-on continent? Also cool. A phrase that associates all of Africa with a racial sexual preference? You should probably get back to the drawing board!
14. “Dog Tits”
This picture is probably one of the best examples of why you should never make drunken bets. At least, we’re seriously hoping that’s what happened here. Otherwise, there’s just really no explanation why anyone would get something this awful tattooed on themselves forever. Odds are, if you have to label what your tatt is supposed to be, it’s probably not a good one to have. Although, when his skin starts to sag a little bit more his “dog tits” will appear more lifelike.
15. “Close, But Not Close Enough”
Nothing says “I have a strong sense of direction” more than an enormous tattoo of a compass. Similarly, nothing screams “I’m lost” as much as an enormous tattoo of a compass with mislabeled directions, either. Let’s just hope this young lady never relies on this artist’s sense of direction if she’s ever lost in the woods.
16. “Maximum Facepalm”
The message behind this tattoo is a wonderful thing, no one’s knocking that. On the other hand, when you have to read behind the message of a tattoo that is written in actual words and should be the message, then it is an epic tattoo fail. Based on the placement of the tat, both artist and customer get an F for attention to detail and spelling, though the two people may be one and the same.
17. “This Tattoo Was Apparently Supposed To Be Of ‘Stars’”
The only way this mess of ink pricks could be considered stars is if the artist and human skin canvas were aiming for a photographic negative look. At the very least, include some familiar constellations in the expanse of black freckles. With the right subject matter she might be able to get a good cover-up, but we really hope she didn’t tip her tattoo artist for this one.
18. “It’s Supposed To Be A Galaxy…”
We know what you’re hoping, but no, she didn’t get inked in marker by her kids while she was snoozing. That ink is real, heavy, and permanent! It doesn’t look anything like, or even remotely close to a galaxy! At best, this looks as though it could be some children’s coloring of a defunct brain. No one deserves this…no one!
19. “It’s Is My Life”
Please, guys; always, always, ALWAYS make sure that your tattoo artist can spell before agreeing to let him lay ink into your epidermis layers so deep that it will never come out. Tattoos really are permanent, they don’t go away. So, if you must have that favorite quote branded on your body, it is well worth the effort to make sure that everything is spelled out correctly before allowing anyone with ink and needles anywhere near you!
20. “My Friends Chinese Tattoo Literally Means ‘Turkey Sandwich’”
There are a few key factors that can determine whether or not a tattoo is “bad”. It could be the artwork, the placement, or the message. Sometimes, though, a tattoo is just bad because it is straight up stupid. This tattoo falls under a couple of those categories. Namely, not only is getting the words ‘turkey sandwich’ engraved into your skin just ridiculous as an idea itself, but if you’re gonna do it you should at the very least make sure the artist does a good job on the lettering.
21. “So My Buddy’s Step Sister Got A Tattoo Of Her Mother..”
I don’t know if I’d be in much of a rush to show this “portrait” off to mom, unless you were intending her to end up looking like she got bit by the zombie bug. The word “broken” inked in cursive above the face is particularly fitting in this tattoo. Hopefully she didn’t pay too much for it, because it’s going to cost a fortune to do a cover-up or removal!
22. When You Really Love The Nerd Look
What do you do if you never want to be caught outside of your typical nerdy-but-hot style of fashion? You get the frames of your glasses permanently inked into your skin, of course! Not just any glasses, either. They’ve got to be the classic black framed box-lense style to truly let your inner-nerd shine!
23. “The Girl With The Vegan Tattoo”
While it’s true that etching the word “vegan” into the side of your skull will most likely get the message across that you aren’t a meat eater, it probably won’t deter an onslaught of other questions. Now that everyone knows you’re a die-hard practitioner of the vegan lifestyle, you are clearly the person to ask all about it. This is not to mention all of the “didn’t that HURT?!” questions people will ask you every other minute. On second thought, maybe answering questions about veganism when prompted is easier than walking around as an advertisement for the lifestyle.
24. “My Poor Drunken Choice”
When you love a cartoon character, sometimes you want a constant reminder of them emblazoned on your skin. “Sometimes” usually involves a night where you have imbibed all the alcohol at the nearby bars before you drunkenly stumble into the tattoo parlor and give the artist on shift a nice laugh. His Pika looks like he had too much to drink, too…or maybe he just needs to poop.
25. “Getting A Tattoo Of Your Newborn”
Sometimes when you have a new baby, you want to do something extreme to commemorate what their newfound life means to you as a parent. This is especially common with your firstborn (which means you have to continue the tradition with every other baby that comes bouncing into your life). What’s not all that common is to get a portrait inked into your back of what your child will look like in 40 years from now, as a drunken monk who has passed out on his own wine.
26. “This Guy’s Argyle Sock Tattoo”
Apparently, when you’re a die-hard golfer, you just go ahead and tattoo your argyle socks right onto your legs. It keeps costs low and you’ll never be turned away from the course for not having all the right attire on. On the other hand, they might question your judgment and your sanity, and you could find yourself being escorted off the property. At least the execution’s good!
27. “Impressive Dot Work, But Why?”
This guy safeguarded himself against losing the look of his physique as his metabolism starts to slow. While indeed, it’s “impressive dot work”, it’s highly doubtful this genius is going to be impressed with the aftermath as his belly starts to grow and his skin begins to sag. On the upside, it’ll be a great conversation starter.
28. “Dude Sure Loves His Turtle”
There’s a reason that tattoo artists transfer the image to your skin and ask you to take a look before proceeding. It’s to avoid regrets like this one, where a silhouette of your kid turns out looking like one of a tortoise. Granted, the gent could actually be a turtle owner, in which case this tattoo is epic and indicates that the guy has a very long and slow journey ahead! It’s doubtful, though.
29. “Unfortunate Tattoo Placement In This Engagement Photo”
If you can’t keep yourself from ironically getting a word like regret tattooed on your body, try to get it in a more discreet place. Otherwise, you are going to end up with photos like this one. Already have bad tattoo emblazoned on your wrist or hand? Try taking the picture from a different angle, or just get used to your photo-bombing tattoo and save up for laser removal.
30. “Friend On Facebook Seems Proud Of This Gem”
Oh, the pin-up girl! Is there any tattoo more iconic in America than that of a sexy woman in a provocative and welcoming pose? Apparently, this guy thinks that there is no one more desirable than a zombified version of Bette Midler with backward ankles and disproportionate legs. Nice rack, though!
These are only 30 of the thousands of examples of hilariously epic tattoo fails! If you take away anything from these pictures, let it be that you should always research your tattooist’s work and consider what it will look like in the long run, and never, ever, get a tattoo when you or your tattoo artist are hammered!

35+ Hilarious Relationship Things That You Should Send To Your Significant Other Right Now
Couples can make the rest of us roll our eyes.
From their gooey-eyed looks at each other, to being forced to listen to the story of how they met for the fifth time, people in love just have to show it off.
If you’re that couple, you might recognize some of these moments, even if you don’t always find them the cutest parts of being in a relationship.
Here are some of the more wholesome moments you’ve likely shared with our partners:
1. You’re each other’s cheerleaders
Being in a relationship means you have a built-in cheerleader for when you do anything remotely impressive.
2. You suck it up and accept that you’re in love, even when you’re mad
Being a little annoyed doesn’t mean you’re going to withhold your affection completely.
3. You feel a little overprotective of your partner
Sometimes friends don’t understand that you’ve already picked your person and so you overreact a little when they remind you there are plenty of other people out there in case you want to jump back into the dating pool.
4. Love can make you feel all melty
Sometimes you catch yourself looking at your partner just because.
5. Date nights start to look a lot different
Netflix and chill is a perfectly acceptable date night.
6. You love having your partner right there, all the time
Couples don’t always feel this way at the same time, but it’s ok. There are worse things in the world than trying to sleep while someone just wants to remind you how much they love you.
7. You understand that food is a necessary componenent of happiness
Ya gotta eat, even when you’re mad. A hangry partner is not a happy partner.
8. You start to look like the other person
Just take a deep breath before you launch into the matching track suits part of your relationship. Your friends are never going to let you forget it.
9. You tell everyone the story of how you met
You get two times to tell the story while the other person looks on like a lovesick puppy, then pack it in.
10. Expensive doesn’t necessarily equal romantic
It’s the thought that counts and not every date night needs to drain the bank account.
11. You get a little possessive
Love can do some weird things to our brains. As long as you keep it respectful towards your partner, admitting that you can still get jealous can make them realize just how stong your bond is.
12. You get that warm tingly feeling
That’s why they say loves makes you glow.
13. Food is love
When you know you found the one because they not only want you to have the large fries, but know it’s a good way to keep you from eating all of theirs and causing a fight.
14. You don’t always need to be made up to be beautiful to them
That doesn’t mean you should just give up, but it’s nice to get to that moment when you don’t need to hide until you’re hair or makeup is done so they only see you at your best.
15. You don’t worry about cheating
Your significant other can go out for a night with friends or appreciate someone else’s beauty and you have the confidence to know that that’s all it is.
16. You accept one of you is a bed hog
Lots of couples still disagree on who it is, but most of the time this can just be solved with an extra backup blanket and a little nudge. Pets are another story.
17. You give in and buy stuff you don’t need
Sometimes your other half just finds something they really have to have and you should just be glad it’s not a whole box of puppies.
18. You catch each other up on important pieces of pop culture
That feeling of being shocked and then overjoyed that you are going to get to introduce them to a song or movie that you love. Just don’t talk through it or demand that they love it. And if you’re the one being introduced to something new, you work up at least a little bit of enthusiasm.
19. You try to look adorable before asking for things
Just never let it get to the point where you’re shouting requests at each other.
20. You try your best on things that aren’t your strong suit
Again, it’s the thought that counts, and doing something nice for your sweetie, even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly, can turn into a great moment – as long as you both keep a sense of humor.
21. You have a favorite food
And that food plays an integral role in your relationship.
22. One of you tells cheesy jokes and the other one puts up with them
Just start making Valentine’s Day cards out of them and they’ll serve a purpose other than to make you pretend to laugh.
23. You’re ok being away from each other
Everybody needs some space. When you’re significant other is away, you can handle youself, even if you really miss them.
24. You want to kiss them every time you see them
It’s cute as long as they don’t mind that you see their face as a kiss magnet.
25. You put up with it all
When you’re around someone a lot, you’re bound to get annoying (or annoyed). Just take it in stride.
26. You find love cartoons for 6-year-olds funny
This one definitely doesn’t require being in a relationship.
27. You still get butterflies when you look at them
It’s always amazing when couple who have been together a long time still get that feeling when they see each other. Now that’s a good life goal.
28. You put up with each other’s singing
It might hurt your ears, but it warms your heart.
29. You don’t want to let them leave without a goodbye kiss
Sometimes it feels like bad luck to let them go without a kiss and an “I love you.”
30. You can picture being the same couple in 50 years
Growing old together requires a lot of patience, but if you’re really in love, you know you can make it work.
31. You don’t withold respect
You might be annoyed or mad, but that doesn’t mean you let your loved one walk in the rain.
32. You tear up when you remember how lucky you are to have found your person
Love can overwhelm you in the best ways.
33. You’re proud of how long you’ve been together
Not everyone can make it work. There’s nothing wrong with being proud if you did.
34. You work around them
If you can stay in love afer an airport delay, you’ve definitely got a good thing going.
35. You always remember birthdays
You don’t need a Facebook reminder to remember their special day. Extra points for remembering the week before so you can ask if there’s a special way they want to celebrate.
36. You’ve got wedding goals
Ok, goals and expectations are two separate things, but if your relationship has gotten this far and is healthy, you know the emotion will be there.
37. You are committed to being adorable forever
Because if you got it (a great relationship, that is), then flaunt it.
Please SHARE this with your friends and family.
50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists
New year, new you! Maybe one of your resolutions this year is to get more enthusiastic about applying your makeup every morning or to try a new eyeshadow shade, or maybe you are just looking for new ways to get the best bang for your buck.
We did the research for you and found a bunch of makeup hacks revealed by actual makeup artists themselves. Hopefully one of these tips will come in handy!
1.) Use the right foundation for your skin type
Use a water-based foundation if you have oily skin. Use an oil-based foundation if you have dry skin. Everyone is different.
2.) You don’t need a lip liner with your liquid matte lipstick
And if anyone tells you that you do, they are a liar. Almost all liquid lipsticks do just fine on their own.
3.) Let your eyelid primer dry before adding eyeshadow
And after the primer dries, coat them with a light, neutral color all over your lid. This will act as a base and will make it easier to blend colors together. If you want a dark color, slowly build it – first with light colors, and then darker. Don’t just go straight from light to dark.
4.) Save your mascara brush
Fun fact: most of the mascara magic actually comes from the brush. So if you found one that really works for you, save the brush when you’re done, clean it, and try using it with a cheaper bottle! It’s really not necessary to spend big bucks on this.
5.) Make your matte, full-coverage concealer look more natural with primer oil or coconut oil
Use just a drop of the oil of your choice and it will make your heavy concealer more radiant, easy to blend, and natural. It also helps with creasing!
6.) Use hairspray to tame full eyebrows
First, spray hairspray on a clean, disposable mascara wand. Then brush your brows up and into the shape you’re going for. If it makes the hair on our head stay in place, it definitely works for the hair on our face!
7.) Wet your brush before applying highlighter
It will instantly give it a little more glow.
8.) Don’t apply primer with your fingers
It can cause micro-exfoliation, which causes clumps.
9.) Use a matte bronzer to make your eyes look bigger
If you’re doing a full face of makeup but want to keep your eyes bare, put a little bit of matte bronzer in your lid crease and bottom lashline. That way, they will still be bare, but they will also appear bigger.
10.) Never use face soap with sodium laureth sulfate
Makeup artists swear that it dries out your skin.
11.) Stick to matte eyeshadows and powders if you have fine lines on and around your eyelids
Using something shimmery usually accentuates those lines.
12.) Always do your eye makeup before your foundation
That way, you will have an easier time cleaning up any fallout from your eyeshadow.
13.) Always exfoliate and prime your lips with a serum
Especially when using a liquid matte lipstick. Cracked lips will show!
14.) Use scotch tape for the perfect eyeliner wing
Angle it from your eye to your eyebrow for the crispest, cleanest eyeliner wing you’ll ever see. Boom, magic.
15.) Use eyeshadow primer on the lash line
Then sweep eyeshadow on top with a fine liner brush to create a smudge-proof eyeliner. Now if you’re out of eyeliner, you can use your shadows for the same effect!
16.) You can also use a cotton pad
If you use cotton pads to apply your face makeup, use those same pads for your eyeliner! Simply fold it in half and use the straight side to line up with your eye for the perfect sweep. No tape needed.
17.) If you accidentally get mascara around your eyes, let it dry
Wait 5 minutes or so and then swipe it away with a Q-tip. At that point, it should flake off and not smudge.
18.) Never share makeup brushes
It’s super unsanitary.
19.) Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primeris an absolute must
It’s soft and it doesn’t clog pores. What more could you want?
20.) Imagine a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your brow. This is where your eyeshadow should stop.
A lot of times, people make the mistake of not bringing out their eyeshadow far enough. This can actually make the eyebrow look smaller.
21.) If you’re just starting out and want to learn how to contour, put the contour color on a brush or sponge first
It will be harder to blend if you draw it on directly like lines.
22.) Don’t sleep in your makeup
“Skin needs time to breathe and when you’re sleeping, your body is repairing the most. Sleeping in makeup is not only messy, but it causes breakouts, premature aging, and stained bedding. Take care of your skin, loves!”
23.) Don’t recreate the celebrities
“Those looks are made for them, their skin type, skin tone, and face shape. People always come into my shop and request to look like Kim Kardashian and I have to explain to them that it might not work on them and sometimes they even get upset when it doesn’t turn out. Yes, I can do it, but it won’t look good on you. Instead ask for something dramatic like Kim Kardashian or whatever you want but do not ask to look like them!”
24.) Invest in good skin care products
“Your makeup, no matter how much you paid for it, will not look its best when it’s added on top of dry, scaly, splotchy, oily and just plain unhappy skin. Want to get makeup optional skin? INVEST in skin care.”
25.) Don’t start from the top lash line if you’re doing winged eyeliner, use the bottom lash line for a smoother, straighter line
And look at the wing you drew first while drawing your second one.
26.) Never store your makeup in a bathroom cabinet
The humidity can cause it to alter and go bad before its time, plus toilet germs.
27.) Blend your foundation out onto your neck
“When wearing foundation please blend it out. Put product on your jawline, and blend it out into your neck. Also blend the foundation along the edges of your face out. It’ll help create a natural look and make it less obvious you’re wearing foundation, plus it will visually improve your color match.”
28.) Don’t use stark white concealer under your eyes
“Use an under-eye concealer one shade lighter than your face concealer, not two or three shades. It will give you a naturally bright effect instead of a contrasting white effect, which looks super unnatural.”
29.) Apply setting powder with a damp beauty blender or brush
This does wonders for people with dry or textured skin and gives a smooth, airbrushed finish.
30.) The same foundation that works for you in the summer might not work for you in the winter
For example, I use a more moisturizing foundation in the winter (Too Faced Born This Way) and prefer a more matte coverage in the summer (Hourglass Stick Foundation).
31.) For eyeshadow, tap the excess eyeshadow off the brush
Also hold the brush farther from the handle for more control.
32.) Blend your foundation into your hairline and make sure to contour that too
Everyone knows to drag their makeup down their neck a little bit, but too often I see people with a line between their makeup and hair. Not a good look!
33.) Stop blowing on your makeup brushes
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people do this and it makes me cringe. Brushes already harbor bacteria if not cleaned and taken care of properly; you blowing on your brushes and getting saliva particles all over it isn’t helping considering you’re applying it directly to your face therefore causing breakouts, clogged pores, etc. If you’ve picked up too much product, just tap it off or give your brush a little shake.”
34.) Use a foundation one shade darker on the outer edge of your face to add depth
35.) If your skin is very oily, apply a light layer of powder after you apply your primer and before you apply your foundation
It’ll give you a smoother look. Also, baby powder works great for baking your face. I use it for everything!
36.) Glowing cheeks that look natural
“”Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it’s coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion.”
37.) Multi-colors on the cheeks is important
“Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink, or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of nose, and chin).”
38.) Lighten your coverage
“Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation.”
39.) Make sure those lashes get coated
“Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner.”
40.) Don’t be afraid of red
“If you want to find the perfect red for your complexion, try applying one lip color that has the same undertone as your complexion all over the lip: Cool uses cool, warm uses warm. Apply a red with the opposite tone just to the center for a lip that looks full and fantastic.”
41.) Reach for the school supplies
“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.”
42.) Thicken up watery foundation
“To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)”
43.) Chill out and reduce puff
“To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup.”
44.) Find the right lip shade
“Test lipstick on the inside of your fingertip, rather than on the back of your hand. The pad of your finger closely resembles your own lip color, so see which one looks best there, then move to the lips.”
45.) The power of gold
“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.”
46.) Who knew?
“Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of color coming though the skin.”
47.) You better stock up on your next visit!
“Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers.”
48.) If it works, it works!
“As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift.”
49.) Who doesn’t want to look younger?
“My favorite ‘look younger’ makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”
50.) Pucker that pout
“Use a flesh-toned eyeliner to outline the lips along the Cupid’s bow. This reduces the chance of feathering and makes lips appear fuller.”
51.) Better safe than sorry
“If you can’t find a perfect shade, buy one that’s slightly darker than your skin and one that’s slightly lighter, then fine-tune the color yourself.”
52.) Strange but effective
“Pull your bottom lip down and look at the inside color. Pick a lipstick shade that’s either lighter or a bit deeper but along the same tone as the inside of your lip. Oh, and don’t do this in public.”
53.) Buff, buff, buff!
“Buff, buff, buff foundation into the skin — quickly, like a whirlwind — with a brush. It ensures the coverage won’t look heavy-handed.”
54.) Instant lip lift
“Apply concealer to the outer corners of your lips to give your lips a lift.”
55.) Fuller brows while you sleep
“Apply a nourishing balm to your eyebrows before going to bed. This will guarantee extra strength and growth—thicker eyebrows in two weeks.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss
Christopher Hopkins, aka “The Makeover Guy” is known for transforming men and women over 40 into the best selves. But in 2019, he took on the task of a teenager.
Little did he know that Phoenix’s makeover would be one of his most powerful.
Phoenix found himself in Hopkin’s Minneapolis “appearance studio” after a big weight loss. The previous school year, he weighed in and 250 pounds.
His transformation wasn’t easy.
He managed to lose 100 pounds by counting his macronutrients (think of it as going a step farther than calorie-counting) and working out every day with a personal trainer
That’s a big commitment for a teenager!
But Phoenix is dedicated and fearless. Hence his desire to put his head in the hands of Hopkins for a whole new style.
He’s already a handsome young man (with hair most people covet), but he decided it was time for a change. And if you’ve seen The Makeover Guy’s popular videos, you know his studio is the place to go.
The big chop
It seems pretty obvious that Phoenix is going to end up with a major haircut. After all, why waste your time going to a makeover guru if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the scissors?
And that’s precisely what Hopkins does. Gone is the shoulder-length wavy hair of the “before” Pheoenix. But is he happy?
There’s a big smile on the teen’s face as he runs his hands through his glossy mane. He’s still got hair to die for!
It’s long on top and makes the perfect wave in front. The only problem is that it’s a little too neat for the teen.
We cringed a little when he messed with perfection, but it’s his hair, not ours after all! And the modelesque look just wasn’t entirely jibing with him.
After getting a tousel from Hopkins, things end up in largely the same place, just not so catalog-model-ready. And it still looks great!
Personal style is just that – personal – so Phoenix has to be able to pull off whatever hairstyle he walks out the door with. And we were really impressed with him for speaking up.
A good day
“I had fun today,” Phoenix says after getting a little ribbing from Hopkins.
He admits that he’s normally shy in front of people and we believe it since when he first walked in he seemed less outgoing. But after agreeing to trust his stylist and seeing the results of the makeover, he lives up to his name. Phoenix is reborn!
After one more tweak by Hopkins, the transformation is complete.
It’s a cute moment when the teen keeps messing with his hair only to have Hopkins walk by and “fix” it one more time.
Commenters were over the moon about Phoenix’s makeover.
“Omg that jawline! He’s stunning and what an adorable personality,” said one fan.
Of course, there were lots of comments about his Bart Simpson shirt, but frankly, we think it adds that perfect reminder that he’s still a “kid.”
And like most commenters, we wish we could see him waltz back into high school with his new look!
