60 Crack-Up Design Flaws That Probably Got Someone Fired

Published

on

We have to admit, we’re not the best at DIY. In fact, we’re the kind of person who would accidentally install a shelf upside down and not notice until it was all nailed in. It’s for that reason alone that we chose to be writers instead of a decorator/interior designer- but it seems that some people simply ended up in the wrong job.

With that being said, if there weren’t people in the wrong jobs, we wouldn’t have half as much to laugh about, and to prove our point to you, here are 60 crack-up design flaws which probably got someone fired.

1. The contradictory sign

The main issue with this sign is that it’s in two separate parts. And while us English-speakers have been conditioned to read from left to right, when there’s boxes involved, things get a little more complicated. We’re not sure the person who made this sign intended for people to read, “Please don’t drive” and “Block the way.”

2. Seems useful

We thought the whole point of drains was to filter away the water and prevent flooding, but this drainage system seems to be a little useless. As a guess, we’d say that the grid was placed in the most raised part of the ground, which as you can see, isn’t ideal. Anyone care for a dip?

3. The impossible quiz

How frustrating is it to finish a quiz, only to find out that you got one answer wrong and had to do it all again? Well, we feel for this person, who actually did pass the test, but it still wasn’t good enough. Some people are never happy.

4. They didn’t think this through

What better way to advertise your clothes than to hang a bunch of child-like mannequins from the ceiling? We reckon this shop would only attract a very specific type of clientele- and probably not the type that you’d want in your store.

5. Mutant duck

It’s like the designer of this toy has never actually seen a duck in real life before. How could they get this so wrong? Where are the flippers? And why is there an extra two legs?

6. Bleedin’ heck

This platypus seems to have been designed as a fun way to infuse coffee/juice/tea into your drink, but unfortunately, it seems as if there was a bit of a design flaw. Did no one try out this product before it was marketed? Help, somebody save him!

7. A sh*it car design. Literally.

We’re not too sure what the design of this car was actually meant to be- because to us, it looks as if somebody had a nasty case of diarrhoea all down the side. Was it meant to be a flame emerging from the bonnet? Or maybe it’s just a discolored Incredible Hulk Arm? Who knows.

8. A very demanding sign

According to this sign, you’re not even allowed to exist before you pay your parking fee. And with instructions so threatening, we’re not sure if this place will end up having many customers left. Ah, the spelling mistakes are the best ones.

9. The three-armed man.

How did this magazine manage to get published? Was nobody responsible for proofreading it? What makes it all the more hilarious is that you’re meant to be taking advice from this slightly creepy three-armed man.

10. “My wife asked me why the fridge was getting warmer after she kept pressing the “cold” button”

With “Cold” and “Colder” being the only two options, we can forgive this woman for making such a simple mistake. Truth be told, we could see this from both sides- as technically, a fridge is never what you’d call “warm.” The best thing to do is just leave it well alone.

Save
Source: Reddit

11. Health and safety flaw

In theory, this arm-locking device sounds like a great idea to stop people from pressing the alarm as a joke. But what happens if there’s a real fire? Doesn’t that take away from the whole point of a pressable alarm in the first place? And why does this woman look so happy?

Save

Source: Reddit

12. “Put Barbed Wire Across The Top Of The Gate. We Don’t Want Anyone Climbing Over It”

Barbed wire is usually enough of a deterrent for trespassers to stay away, but when you literally have an open gate right next to the barbed wire, it’s like giving your dog a bowl full of treats and telling him not to eat it. We’d give them an A+ for effort, but unfortunately, this design just isn’t going to cut it.

Save

Source: Reddit

13. Winnie as you’ve never seen him before

This is like a Winnie the Pooh from a child’s nightmares. The fact that the body, ears, and head shape are pretty accurate to the cartoon character, makes the huge mouth and prominent teeth all the more creepy. It’s like someone stuck a pair of false gnashers in there.

Save

Source: Reddit

14. They really didn’t think that tail through

The cool thing about this action man is that he can morph into some kind of cat thing (we’re not too clued up on these kinds of toys), but it’s safe to say that the manufacturers didn’t think what would happen to the tail once action man was- well, a man. How would you explain this one to the kids?

Save

Source: Reddit

15. The most confusing sign

It seems as if two different signs were merged together to create this one. Not only is the snowman creepy, but the actual context of the writing makes us believe that Santa is doing something pretty horrible to the girl. How did anyone ever think that this was a good idea?

Save

Source: Reddit

16. “For when you want a near-death experience every time you use the stairs”

Stairs without a handrail? Nope. Stairs with huge gaps in between them? Nope. Stairs with shelves installed into them? Nope. This seems like a recipe for disaster. Imagine walking down these when you were drunk.

Save

17. It’s an advent calendar

Advent calendars are fun, and even as an adult, we get a slight thrill out of searching the calendar for the correct number. But when you’re in a lift, and the doors have closed, and the pressure’s on to pick your floor, this would honestly be our worst nightmare. We’ll take the stairs, thanks.

18. An obvious design fault

This shirt clearly wasn’t designed for women, which is kind of disappointing. Why shouldn’t men and women want to wear a shirt with Putin on it? We’re kind of digging the way he looks, though.

Save

Source: Reddit

19. Every hole is a goal

We don’t know if the manufacturers chose this slogan on purpose, or whether they genuinely didn’t realize the innuendos within the text. A good slogan is the key to every business, and this will certainly get everybody talking. Which is a good thing, right?

Save

Source: Reddit

20. Where’s Europe?

The person who made this obviously has a thing against Europe- so much so, that they decided to leave it out of the design. Maybe it was too small and fiddly to fit in, or maybe they just prefer the world with a bit of extra sea.

Save

Source: Reddit

21. “I never imagined the Golden Gate Bridge was as bike-friendly as it is”

It’s always good to give bikers lots of room, but when you have to be child-sized to fit through the pedestrian route, you know that somebody messed up. Just don’t lean too far to the left, whatever you do!

Save

Source: Reddit

22. This passport got well and truly messed up

We hope this person didn’t have to pay to get their passport fixed! After all, is it really their fault that their printer gave them not a forehead, not a five head- but more of a ten head? Imagine trying to get through customs with that…

Save

Source: Imgur

23. Can you see it?

It took us a while to realize that one of these girls literally has an extra pair of legs. Like, there are four pairs of legs, but only three heads? Where did the other girl go?

Save

Source: Reddit

24. Period pizza

When it comes to making a dramatic statement, this pizza company clearly did that- though admittedly, not in the way they would have liked. We can’t imagine anything worse than having a period pizza, and although we appreciate that the company was going for the red stamped-on lettering for dramatic effect, they might want to rethink their design a little.

Save

Source: Imgur

25. “Do not leave children unattended at Whole Foods”

This has to be some kind of practical joke, or else it’s probably time for the sign-maker of this store to call it quits. We’re guessing that the sign was actually meant to say, “chicken,” but somehow it came out as “children.” It’s like something out of a horror movie!

26. Colon Cleanser

Imagine how quickly you could ruin your night by taking one of each at the same time. Make sure you relax and sleep first though. So the morning will be a surprise!

Save

Source: Reddit

27. It’s all politics

During election times, political posters can become samey and boring very fast- so we love the way this one was printed onto the bus. We wonder how this politician feels about being hamster-fied? It’s a great way to get people to take him seriously (not).

28. An interesting design

At first glance, we thought that this bathroom counter had makeup smeared all around it- or worse. So when we realized that somebody had actually painted the counter to look like this, our first thought was: why? Well, it’s certainly unique.

Save

Source: Reddit

29. “Insert here”

It took us a second to realize that this sign was pictured at a ski resort, and features a man about to sit on a ski lift chair. It’s not quite what we had in mind when we first saw it, and for that, we breathe a sigh of relief. Colonoscopy, anyone?

30. Safety first

Hard hats are very important when doing some DIY with your one-year-old. As long as they’re wearing a hard hat, they will be protected from everything. So why not give your toddler a hammer? What could possibly go wrong?

Save

Source: Reddit

31. A stroke of genius

We’d like to think that this design is intentional, as it’s a sure-fire way to get people’s attention. Though saying that, it’s slightly creepy to have some glowing, red eyes staring at you when you’re driving.

Save

32. Under my umbrella

How do you protect wires from heating in Hawaii? With a mini umbrella, of course. We’re not sure how this tiny umbrella would cope in a storm, but we’ll come to that problem when we get to it.

Save

Source: Imgur

33. It’s all about perspective

This picture seems to take the promise, “Till death do us part,” to a whole new level. We’re not sure what the intentions of the artist were, but we’re sure she didn’t mean to make the bride and groom look… well, a little on the dead side. Surely not?

Save

Source: Reddit

34. “Put a Braille sign on the Fun Mirror”

Whoever decided to put a braille sign above this fun mirror has a wicked sense of humor. This sign is really rubbing it in a visually impaired person’s face. “Here’s the fun, but you can’t join in yourself.” Oh, the irony.

Save

Source: Reddit

35. “It’s supposed to be a safety pin…”

In what way did someone ever think this could be a safety pin- and more importantly, why would you put a drawing of a safety pin on a child’s sweater in the first place? Aside from the obvious thing that we’re sure first sprung to everyone’s minds, we could also see a rocket in this picture. But a safety pin? Get out of here.

Save

Source: Reddit

36. What exactly are we measuring?

The great thing about measuring labels, is that we can see just how much water we’re drinking throughout the day. But when the bottle isn’t transparent, what’s the point? You would have to have x-ray eyes to be able to use this bottle.

Save

Source: Reddit

37. Just why?

Anyone who owns a dog knows just how strongly you love them- as much as your own children. So we’re baffled as to why someone would invent a leash that literally looks as if you’re shooting your beloved pet. Imagine seeing this at your local dog park?

Save

Source: Reddit

38. “Let’s Alphabetically Order The Floor Numbers”

Putting things in alphabetical order satisfies the type A personality in us, but when someone decided to do it with floor numbers, we felt that they’d taken it a step too far. There’s no easy way to find your floor when they’re all jumbled like this.

Save

Source: Reddit

39. “This gnome salt shaker”

If someone went to the effort of making two holes, we’d assume that they’d at least make them the right way round. This gnome now has eyes in the back of his head, and it kind of ruins the fun of shaking the salt out. Besides, why is he plain white?

Save

Source: Reddit

40. No funny business

We get that this sign was going for a “no dogs” kind of approach, but we think they completely missed the mark. In fact, the sign seems to be prohibiting humans and dogs from getting up to some funny business- and although it’s technically correct, we’re not sure that people have to actually be told this.

Save

Source: Reddit

41. “Sure boss, the bus has all the seats in place”

Either this seat was designed for pets and handbags only, or someone well and truly messed up when they were installing the bus seats. After staring at this picture for a good while, we can only guess that the seat was meant to go sideways? Where else could it go?

Save

Source: Reddit

42. Rainboners

Have you ever been so happy to see a rainbow, that it caused a physical reaction in you that was out of control? If so, then you may be suffering from a rainboner. Don’t worry, as the effects won’t be permanent.

Save

Source: Reddit

43. There are no words

There’s nothing funnier than seeing a distorted face in an advertisement, and this man’s face looks absolutely hilarious. In all fairness to him, he probably wasn’t ever expecting to see his face all squashed up in the corner of some packaging when he took up his modelling job. Poor guy.

44. Tonix juice

Imagine being super thirsty, running into a store and picking up this generously sized bottle, only to realize that you’d purchased some floor cleaner? Surely we’re looking at a public health hazard here? We can’t imagine it being the nicest thing to drink.

Save

Source: Reddit

45. “I’m coming to get you!”

Whoever thought that it would be a good idea to portray tumors in this way, needs to be sacked. If only cancer was as fun as playing a game of hide and seek… And the little girl’s face is positively filled with joy!

Save

Source: Reddit

46. It’s all wrong here

As far as we were aware, 49 plus 50 doesn’t quite make one hundred, so that’s our first issue here. Secondly, why is the 49% piece of the pie so much bigger than the 50%? It looks someone needs to go back to school for some Math lessons.

Save

Source: Reddit

47. Color the scene

Ahh, there’s nothing kids love more than coloring in some of their favorite movie characters. But wait a second… which parts can they actually color in? We love how the kid still went to the effort of coloring in a tiny 1% of Darth Vader.

48. A poo mascot

When it comes to diarrhoea ads, most companies tend to beat around the bush, so to speak. We often see images of pretty women clutching their stomachs, or perhaps a hot water bottle or two. But never before have we seen a literal poo giving us advice.

Save

Source: Reddit

49. A what now?

This whole thing gets weirder when you realize that this ad has actually been posted by a crematorium. It’s fine to be light-hearted about death, but we think this might be a step too far. We wonder how they managed to get this girl’s permission to use her picture in their ad?

Save

50. Time for dinner

This menu looks as if it was created by a 6-year-old girl. All that it’s missing is some butterfly and love heart stickers. Seriously, we get a migraine just looking at this thing.

Save

Source: Reddit

51. “Braille behind vending machine glass”

Somehow, we don’t quite think that a lot of these people have got the hang of what braille actually is. They certainly wasted their money putting it behind glass, where no visually impaired person can actually read it. Just why?

Save

Source: Reddit

52. Fire exit below

Imagine hearing the smoke alarm and rushing down the flight of stairs to find this? What’s even the purpose of having a flight of stairs that leads to a brick wall? There must have been a door there at some point.

Save

Source: Reddit

53. “Spain’s new shirt looks like it got dirty while eating bolognese pasta”

Spain might be a great football team, but there really is no excuse for this kit design. If you squint, it looks as if the poor players have just vommed all over themselves. I mean, at least it’s unique…

Save

Source: Reddit

54. Name the continents

Now we’re no geography experts, but we’re pretty sure that you can’t just label everywhere in Asia as China. In fact, we’d say that that was a little racist. Who on earth designed this thing?

Save

55. He shoots, he… breaks the window

What better way to entertain your child than by sticking a netball hoop to the back of your house? That is until you realize that it’s right below the window. And where is the ball likely to go if it misses its target? You guessed it.

Save

Source: Reddit

56. We’re all As

First off, the grammar nerd in us feels the need to point out that there definitely shouldn’t be an apostrophe after the A. Second off, putting an image of a girl next to their pretty strange list of qualities wasn’t the best idea that this school has ever had.

Save

Source: Reddit

57. Stand up for what you support in

These people were trying to do a good thing, but unfortunately for them, they failed epically. Unless you’re right up close to this sign, you’re going to read the larger letters only. We’re not sure that, “we support child abuse” is a term that would go down well with most people.

Save

Source: Reddit

58. Change fart

We don’t know if we’re just immature, but we’ll admit that we had a good old giggle over this store’s advertising. Of course, it’s obvious what the store name is actually meant to say, but we just can’t help reading the word “fart.”

59. The most terrifying library

We’re not sure that a picture like this would actually encourage customers to visit the library- in fact, it could actually do the opposite. This is the kind of picture that could make little kids cry.

60. Pizza and ice cream

Here’s another terrifying sign, and after looking at this ad, we don’t think we’ve ever wanted pizza or ice cream less. This poor little girl doesn’t half look creepy.

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.

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.

50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists

Published

on

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.

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.”

– Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Chanel celebrity makeup artist

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss

Published

on

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.

Teenage trauma

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?

Source: YouTube Screenshot – MAKEOVERGUY

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!
