75 Clever Bumper Stickers That Will Make You Double-Take

Published

on

While bumper stickers are everywhere, they’re also one of those things in life that are easily overlooked. After all, we’ve seen hundreds of them while sitting at red lights or crossing the country on road trips. They can say almost anything: support politicians, share pithy wisdom, or show off stick figure family trees.

There are even some bumper stickers that have become classic symbols. Remember back in the 1990s when every bumper declared that “Shit Happens”? Or in the early 2000s when we whittled down acceptance of our neighbors to a single word: “COEXIST”?

In some ways, bumper stickers have become a symbol of hard-talking Americana. Just go to the South and you’ll see more stickers celebrating the Second Amendment than you can count. In other parts of the country, you’ll see everything from political commentary to life lessons and silly puns.At the end of the day, bumper stickers are just something fun to read as you sit in a traffic jam. Good ones usually give you a chuckle. And great ones might very well make you look twice. Here are 75 bumper stickers that’ll make you do a double-take. At least traffic won’t be boring.

1. A note to all the dreamers

It might sound cynical, but it does need to be said. Sometimes, the rest of us are just too nice to tell you that your art is terrible. Find a new hobby.

2. Yawn

What, you think you’re going to impress me with your basic literacy skills? That’s nothing — pretty much everyone I know can read. We all went to school, pal.

3. Two zingers for the price of one

It would awkward if your boss happened to see this bumper sticker while behind you in traffic. Not only are you telling them to go to hell, but you’re also not pulling any punches about the workplace.

4. I’m blushing AND laughing

When a man drives a big car, we often jokingly say he’s compensating for a lack of something. This guy has taken advantage of his small car to prove the stereotype goes both ways.

5. It all evens out

No matter how convenient they are, cars aren’t good for the environment. But don’t worry: this driver is bringing their carbon output back to zero with the use of a handy-dandy branch. You’re welcome, ozone.

If you laughed at this, you definitely have a twisted sense of humor. And as funny as it is, I wouldn’t want to have a cop driving behind me with this bumper sticker on my car. I’m pretty sure it makes everything you do 100 percent more suspicious.

6. Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to step out of the car

If you laughed at this, you definitely have a twisted sense of humor. And as funny as it is, I wouldn’t want to have a cop driving behind me with this bumper sticker on my car. I’m pretty sure it makes everything you do 100 percent more suspicious.

7. It can all be true if you dream

Talk about striking back against the patriarchy. Sure, it’s a little strongly worded — but there are some good men out there, after all. But this driver puts them up there with dragons.

8. They’re not wrong

Hopefully, your parents never awkwardly told you where you were conceived. And if they did, we hope it wasn’t in a parked car. But let’s be honest…some of us were conceived in parked cars.

9. I don’t think they’re Republicans

Ah, bumper stickers, the perfect way to express your political leanings. But this one is incredibly clever. They’re making it clear what they think about the Republican candidates.

10. That’s not a bad point

13. Hey, wait for a second

The funny thing about this bumper sticker, you know it went the same way every time. The driver behind the car saw it, chuckled, and then had the lightbulb go on.

14. Must be from Canada

This is another clever bumper sticker. It’s telling anybody driving too close to go screw themselves. But it’s disguised so nicely in the form of an apology.

Not every bumper sticker is funny. Some are motivational or thought-provoking. Just take this one for example, which is a reminder not to get stuck in thinking the way you’ve always thought.

17. Too soon

As if it wasn’t enough that T-rexes have short little arms, they also have to deal with all of us making fun of them because of it. Or at least they would if they weren’t extinct.

18. Better leave him the hell alone

I might not be 70 years old, but I too feel like saying this to everybody on most days. But this driver doesn’t need any excuse. They’ve dealt with all these idiots for 70 years and they deserve some peace.

19. Words to live by

If dragons were real, you know we would hear stories about people who died because they tried to mess with them. I can hear it now: “Hold my beer while I poke its tail with a stick…”

Talk about sharing too much information. Didn’t your parents ever tell you to go to the bathroom before you got in the car? It’s a very important life lesson.

22. Way to tell ‘em

Even though we’re about to start the 2020s, some people still think women can’t be good leaders. But the reality is that we follow women all the time — in traffic and elsewhere.

23. Don’t mess with this driver

Have you ever taken one look at another person and known you shouldn’t antagonize them? Something tells me the driver of this car is one of those people.

24. If they had cars in ancient Israel, that is

Jesus lived 2,000 years ago, which means he was confined to using the mode of transportation of the time. But if he had driven a car, I’m sure he would’ve been very careful and courteous.

25. A compelling argument

We all know how important it is to wear a seatbelt, and yet there are still people foolish enough to risk not buckling up. This might very well be as convincing an argument as any.

26. I think I found my soulmate

We’ve all seen the bumper stickers proudly stating the number of marathons the driver has run. Or maybe how fast they can run per mile. At least they’ve finally made a version for the rest of us.

27. Of all the arguments in favor of marriage…

I can’t decide if this is a good or terrible argument in favor of staying in a marriage. I think the answer is it’s a terrible joke, but it’s still funny.

28. Okay, that’s fair

There are plenty of impatient drivers on the road, so it makes sense they need to plead for patience. But what do they do with the sticker when they’re not pushing a motorhome?

29. What a nerd

Look, it’s a joke that makes math lovers chuckle and the rest of us groan. Don’t worry, bumper sticker. I’ll never do calculus no matter how much alcohol I’ve had to drink.

30. Making all the minivans full of teenager’s giggle

Poor old Uranus, the planet whose name has been making us laugh since the third grade. Back in the day, they made us pronounce “urine-us.” Unfortunately, that’s not much better.

31. A variation on a classic

Once upon a time, “COEXIST” bumper stickers were everywhere. But this one’s a little different. It’s enough to make any comic book nerd squeal with glee.

32. I’m guessing this was custom-made

Most bumper stickers are mass-produced because they’re geared toward a big demographic. But something tells me this one had a pretty small audience. Maybe just this driver.

33. They might be onto something here

35. Something to ponder

Bumper stickers can express support for politicians, raise awareness for charitable causes, and have silly witticisms. Apparently, some of them also serve as strange conversation starters.

36. Don’t judge me by my minivan

When we see a minivan, we know who’s driving it — a parent with several small children. But don’t judge them by their car. Back in the day, they were a cool kid, too.

37. Pretty much

The stick figure family bumper stickers were once almost as popular as the Coexist ones. But let’s be honest — does everyone in traffic really need an introduction to every member of your family?

38. Don’t hold back

There are funny jokes on bumper stickers. Then there are the ones that are so funny and so bad at the same time that you can’t help but say, “Oooooh…” This one falls into the second category.

39. It must be one of those new cars

42. Every bumper sticker ever

Well, that’s pretty much it — this bumper sticker summarizes, well, every bumper sticker. We all have opinions and we all want to share them, even in the middle of traffic.

43. Most of us need to remember this

This homemade bumper sticker might seem like it’s touting a non sequitur, but let’s be honest. Most people need to be reminded of this so they won’t be jerks — especially in traffic.

If you’re tired of bumper stickers that loudly express opinions, you’re bound to love this one. There are no politics here, just a good old-fashioned silly joke to give you a chuckle on the road.

Save

45. It’s good to stand for something

Lots of bumper stickers take a stand on important political, religious, and societal issues. But something tells me this one isn’t trying to take a stand as much as it is trying to confuse the heck out of everyone.

46. PETA does not approve

Most puns are groan-worthy, but every now and then you hear one that’s so unexpected, you can’t help but laugh. This one is hysterical, playing on the usual meaning of the word “preserve.”

51. Quite the achievement

Sometimes you have a victory in your life that you want to share with others but you don’t know how. Clearly, the answer is to make a bumper sticker so the world knows your achievement.

57. What’s the fastest way to say “I’m pretentious”?

Is there anything worse than people who brag about their cool “other” cars? As it turns out, there is. It’s this person who thinks it’s not obnoxious to make this statement.

59. I’m afraid to respond

Bumper stickers are a first and sometimes, only an impression of another driver. That’s why seeing statements like these can be…well, kind of disturbing. Imagine if someone walked up to you and said this without any other context.

Save

Source: Reddit/rasta_banana

60. Should I be afraid?

Some bumper stickers don’t look strange at first because they play on a design you’ve seen before. This is obviously based on the Coca-Cola design. But once you look closer, you realize it’s something completely different and a little creepy.

63. Every truck driver needs this one

Ask anybody with a truck and they’ll tell you it comes with the territory. Once people find out you have a truck, they’re going to ask you to help them move. It’s only a matter of time.

64. Who needs online dating?

It can be so hard to date in this day and age, especially after a divorce. This dad isn’t interested in the traditional ways of meeting women. He prefers a much more direct approach.

65. Oh, the irony

Nothing says “irony” like a bumper sticker declaring a hatred of bumper stickers. It might take you a moment as you’re sitting behind this car in traffic. But once it clicks, you’re bound to chuckle.

66. No need to brag

Oh, you ran a marathon and have bumper stickers bragging about it? That’s nothing. I ran a Netflix marathon while finishing “The Office.” It was a big accomplishment.

Save

Source: Noteabley

67. Perfect for everyone who doesn’t GAF

This one requires a pretty dark sense of humor since it’s parodying real memorials often seen on windshields. But unlike the real ones, it’s grieving the loss of the driver’s motivation.

Save

Source: Noteabley

68. Use what you got

It’s generally not a good idea to flip the bird while you’re on the road no matter how angry you are. But this driver would argue it’s the only way to effectively communicate.

Save

Source: Noteabley

69. Well, they’re right

There are dozens of variations of the “Honk if you…” bumper stickers, so it’s never a surprise to see a new one. But this sticker is a little more obvious. I guess it’s as good a reason as any.

70. What a beautiful family

Awe look, this driver has a picture of their spouse and kids on their back window. Uh, wait a minute…those are some pretty unusual names.

71. This is probably a millennial

Millennials are notoriously uninsured and underinsured. Of course, we don’t know for sure if a millennial even owns this car. But they sure as heck can relate to this bumper sticker.

Save

72. Uh…yes, yes, it is

We’ve seen political bumper stickers, those with pithy wisdom, and the ones with groan-worthy puns. But when none of those will do, there’s always another option: bumper stickers with obvious statements.

73. You’re a winner, we’re all losers

Is this really something to brag about? We should all be trying to reduce our carbon footprint, especially when it comes to our cars. So, I guess you win and lose at the same time.

74. What century are you from?

With a bumper sticker like this, I’m reasonably certain this driver is from the future. And if they’re telling the truth, the future sounds absolutely amazing.

Save

75. I don’t believe you

A word of advice: the moment you have to tell anyone you’re not a stalker, they’ll likely think you are. In the case of this bumper sticker, I think that’s the point.

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!

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.

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

44.) Find the right lip shade

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?

“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!
