When is the right time to teach your kids about when to call 9-1-1? We may start as early as 2 years old or maybe wait for them to be a little bit more matured to fully understand how 9-1-1 works. We may have different opinions but we all have to agree that it is a very important lesson.
This emergency line has saved many lives and is continuing to do so. That’s why it’s very important that our kids learn when to call and to know how to distinguish “emergency” from not-so-important matters.
We do have to agree that there can be many incidents of children calling 9-1-1 and even though they are being thought of the importance of the emergency line, we can’t help but admit that they are all funny!
9-1-1 operators share their funniest calls on Reddit. We’ve gathered 50 stories that are will surely brighten up your day!
1) Breakfast time
A little boy called 911 because he was hungry and needed breakfast. The operator asked him if he was alone and he said no because his sister was watching him but she was sleeping. The operator then told him he should go and wake his sister, so she can make him breakfast but the little boy didn’t want to because she was really mean. Good thing the boy’s mom was an EMT so the operator knew his family; he called his grandma and had her go take care of the breakfast crisis. Later, his mom called to apologize.
2) Fart bomb rescue
A 4-year old called 911 because his older brother farted on him. After he explained what happened, the operator was laughing too hard and had to wait a couple extra seconds before calling the number back. It was the mother who answered the phone and he had to explain what happened to her just to make sure that everything was alright. The mother was of course mortified and apologized over and over.
3) A whoopie Christmas present
A six-year old girl accidentally called 911 saying that her mommy and daddy were making “whoopee”. The operator had flashbacks of Family Feud and laughed so hard. He had to wait for a couple of minutes before calling back and the mother answered. She shrugged it off and said they were just wrapping Christmas presents.
We might all wonder if that present is a new little brother or sister.
4) I just called to say I love you!
This little girl has the purest intentions. According to the operator, she called their center for more than 10 times so she could tell the 911 operators that she loved them and she appreciates them. She would always get a new operator but if she would get an operator more than once, she’d say “Nonono, I already told you! I need to tell someone else. You’re great, but they need to know they’re great, too! Okay, I love you, bye!”
Ain’t she the sweetest?
5) Requesting a vegetarian, please!
Operator asked the little kid who called what is the emergency. The little kid answered that he needed a “vegetarian”. Confused, the operator asked the kid again, still the little kid said “vegetarian”. He then said that his dog was sick. That’s the only time the operator understood what the kid meant.
He was looking for a Veterinarian. So the operator explained that that 911 was for human emergencies.
6) Please save Steve!
A little girl called because she was giving her pet lizard a bath and it went down the drain. She called 911 crying telling that Steve was drowning and had gone down the drain. By the time the dispatcher figured out that Steve was a house gecko the police and fire department were already pulling in.
We’re still wondering if Steve made it.
7) Daddy took his hard-earned Trick or Treat candies.
A four year old boy called in to say that his daddy took his trick or treat candies. Apparently, he took them because he was planning to ration it out and didn’t want his kid to eat them all in a single night.
8) Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
On a Saturday morning about 7 am, a mom was “sleeping in” and her 2-year old son called 911 because he wanted breakfast. The mom didn’t know what happened until a Sheriff was already knocking on their front door doing a welfare check.
9) In ‘N Out Burger problems
So, a sister called 911 because she wanted her ‘problem’ fixed. She and her brother wanted the same In ‘N Out Burger. Sender mentions that they all had 4 identical burgers, but they just wanted the ‘same’ one. The police came to their house after the call and gave them a lecture about real emergencies. Their mom came home in the middle of the lecture and we all have an idea what her reaction was.
10) A little chat about fortnite
One operator shared his favorite call from an 11-year old boy who was walking home from school and got lost. He called because he panicked, so the operator told him to stay where he was until the officers arrived. Since no officers were available for another 30 minutes, he needed to stay on the line with the boy and they spent the next half hour chatting about fortnite.
11) Dear 911
When this mom got a job as a 911 operator, she happily shared the news with her kids. The next day, one of her sons called 911 just to tell ‘mom’ bout his day.
12) Big brother won’t let him watch “The Simpsons”
A little boy calls 911 because his brother won’t let him watch The Simpsons. The boy told the police that his brother was being really mean to him and their parents got a callback. This led to a very interesting conversation.
13) We are all safe and alive
A little boy called 911 just to let them know that nobody in the house was “dead”. Alarmed, the police wanted to speak to the child’s parents but the little boy insisted that they don’t need to because “no one is dead”.
The operator called back and was relieved to know that they were all okay and alive – as promised by the little boy.
14) Where is the old man?
Every toddler is a handful, just like this 17-month old baby boy. While his mom was cooking, he somehow dialed the emergency line, though mom didn’t really think that the call went through.
Fourteen minutes later the police came and were looking for
“an old man who might have fallen down”. Apparently, the emergency line operator had asked several questions, but the only response she had gotten was labored, heavy breathing that she thought was an old man who was in need of help.
After figuring out what happened, the kid met the police officers and one of them just said, “Yeah, that’d be the perp. Look at the guilty look on his face.”
15) Craving for some Doritos
A 12-year old boy was home alone and was apparently bored so he called 911 and asked them to “Tell daddy to bring Doritos when he comes home”.
His dad was a State Trooper but the real question here is if he did bring home Doritos.
16) Wrong number
About 10 years ago, a preteen girl accidentally called 911 while dialing her friend’s number which also has 9 and 1 minus the area code. As soon as she realized the mistake, she dropped the call and didn’t tell anyone.
This action seemed suspicious to the operator so they sent someone to the girl’s home. At the exact same time, the girl’s aunt was leaving so the police followed her and pulled her out of the driveway.
Everything was cleared out and all the people involved already got a good laugh.
17) Itsy Bitsy Call
A 911 dispatcher once had a call consisting of several toddlers all singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider together. Now, this is definitely one cute call. We’re all wondering how he responded.
18) What’s for dinner?
A little boy called 911 because he didn’t like his dinner. They were having fish and he told the dispatcher that his mom was forcing him to eat fish for dinner. They promptly called back and it was the mom who answered this time and well, ever since, the child no longer complained about having fish for dinner.
19) Free concert
This guy was so busy planting flowers that he didn’t notice he pocket dialed 911. An officer shows up at the man’s house and good thing everything was cleared out.
The guy said that he didn’t know how much of his improvised singing about planting flowers they all heard.
As it turns out, this guy also pocket-dialed the phone numbers of his ex-girlfriend, boss, his best friend, and his old boss. They all tried to contact him back to ask why he was singing.
Pretty embarrassing and funny at the same time.
20) Some Debbie snacks please
A 7-year old boy thought that his dad’s phone number was 911 since he works in law enforcement so, one day, he called and asked if he can get one of his little Debbie snacks and to tell him about the planets since his dad loves space.
When the kid was asked who his father was, he was radioed but was unavailable because he was working a fatality. Instead, one of the patrol offices shows up and tells the kid’s mom that her son called 911.
The patrol officer also told the little boy that he can have some Debbie snacks. The father thought it was the cutest mistake – ever.
21) Just 20 minutes alone
The dispatcher receives a call and there’s a second of giggling then the phone disconnects. As with all hang ups, the operator calls back.
A child answers with a hello, and the dispatcher said his spiel, then the child drops the call.
He tried calling back again when a very tired sounding man answers. The operator says his spiel once again and the distraught man denies that he called 911.
After explaining what happened, he shouts the names of his children and asked them about the “call”. Of course, they said no but when daddy told them that the police are on the phone, the operator heard aloud gasp!
“John did it daddy! I told him not to! I can’t go to jail!” She ratted him out immediately. As it turns out poor daddy was home sick with the flu. Mom had run to the store thinking they’d be fine 20 minutes watching TV.
22) Bikini Bottom call
“Emergency 911. What’s the location of your emergency?”
“Is this the Krusty Krab?” (kids laughing in the background)
“No this is Patrick” (hangs up)
This 911 operator sure knows how to respond.
23) A Total misunderstanding
A kid around 3 or 4 years old woke up after a nap and mommy was out for a jog. Daddy on the other hand was outside doing some yard work.
Little kid decides to call 911 and said that he can’t find mommy anywhere!
Operator asks where is the kid’s father and he responded that his dad was outside digging a big whole.
In no time, police came knocking at their door and didn’t leave until Mommy came back.
24) Where’s my grandma?
A little girl decided to call 911 so she can look for her grandmother. This little girl thought that 911 was her granny’s cell so after a few minutes of talking with the operator, they asked her if there were adults in the house.
She went up and asked her mom who was then taking a shower about the police calling and was looking for her grandma.
Well, the kid was grounded from using the phone after.
25) Concerned about mommy
A young boy around 3 years old called 911 because his mommy “wasn’t moving”.
In no time, two EMT and a cop were knocking at the door and were asking questions. Turned out that mommy dearest was just having a “nap” and little boy didn’t know what that was.
Good thing, the boy’s older brother was there to explained what happened.
26) Not too loud!
A worried kid called in because he thought that his daddy was hurting his poor mommy. The kid told the operator that all he could hear was heavy breathing in the bedroom, and what he said sounded like crying.
In no time, units arrive on scene and well, you’ve guessed it right. It was just his parents making the kid a little sibling.
The mother was mortified with embarrassment while explaining.
27) What happened to Barney?
A little girl was having a great time and was enjoying her brother’s 5th birthday with Barney the dinosaur theme. Apparently, it was their uncle who was under the suit and he wanted to cool off so he went to the bedroom and took the suit off.
The Barney costume came in sections so when the little girl came inside the room, she was horrified to see Barney in pieces, scattered all over the floor. She called 911 and said that Barney has been murdered and was in pieces in the bedroom.
Helicopter, swat team, and many police officers arrived at the scene of the crime a.k.a big brother’s birthday party to find Barney the dinosaur in the room.
28) Woke up confused
One afternoon, a little kid had a nap and woke up around 7pm. As an anxious child, he thought it was 7am and he panicked when he can’t find his mom and sister.
He assumed that they were dead, so he called 911. All the involved people weren’t thrilled.
29) He took it literally
A young kid called in and reported that their butts were on fire.
Turns out, he didn’t quite understand how their butts were on fire (because of the friction) because they were sliding down a carpeted stair.
30) A little out of control
This kid who was around 5 years old was playing with all of his toys and made a huge mess so his dad told him to clean all his toys.
The little boy refused and they got into a little discussion and he thought it was appropriate to ask someone to side by him by calling 911.
He reported how his father made him do things that he didn’t want to do.
Which definitely looks like he is reporting some sexual assault incident and this prompted the police to come and visit.
Things were settled but the authorities still recommended that they get help from a social worker.
31) Deep river
A kindergartner called 911 to report that their older brother and sister jumped into a river and drowned themselves. The Police of course arrived to the river and it was a drainage ditch no more than 2 feet deep.
32) Brilliant idea
This kid wanted to check how real 911 is. She just learned it in kindergarten and was excited to try it out. Luckily, she had a brilliant idea!
She used a payphone thinking it wouldn’t go through but to her surprise, she saw two fire trucks and some cops in her school.
33) Concerned toddler
A little girl around 3 or 4 years old wondered if 911 had enough ambulances, so she decided to call them and ask.
Maybe, this cute little girl thought that she can help them if ever they didn’t have enough units.
Mommy was shocked to receive a very interesting call from the operator afterwards.
Adorable and funny!
34) Future police officer
Kid called 911 saying he shot his dog. The operator asked him where his parents were and got the reply that they were on the porch.
So, the operator then asked if his parents heard the gun and the little boy just said no, he added that it doesn’t make any sound when it squirts’.
The operator instructed the kid to call his pet dog and afterwards, all he can hear was a happy kid.
Turns out, this kid has a very smart and trained dog that can play dead when a toy gun is pointed at him. After calling back on the kid’s parents, the operator found out that this little boy wants to be a police officer.
They got invited over, the kid made an apology drawing. Up until today, the drawing is still on the fridge of the station, waiting for him to grow up and become a cop and see his own drawing every day 😉
35) Dreams do come true
This kid remembers having a vivid dream of calling 911, but the operator couldn’t understand anything she was saying.
That morning, her father went inside her room and said that something really weird happened to him last night.
To his surprise, she cut him off and said that something weird happened to her as well.
She told her dad the story and then the father simply said:
“The weird thing that happened to me is that cops showed up at our house at 5 AM!”
36) Guns in the lounge
This little boy who was staying at his grandfather’s house has been playing with nerf guns. Somehow, he found the house phone and dialed the emergency number and told the operator that “there were guns in the lounge”
Since there are very strict gun laws in New Zealand, Granddad didn’t realize what happened until a few cops showed up in bullet proof vests to search the property.
37) Batman’s murder mystery
A little boy called 911 because his older brother tore the head off his Batman figurine. The cops showed up and realized what really happened but since they were already there, they took statements from each kid, and presented the evidence to the parents to let them decide on a corrective action. Everyone had good laugh about it.
38) In case there’s a fire
As a part of the Fire department drill, students were instructed what to do in case they see smoke or fire. This kid heard that when he sees smoke, he should grab a phone, call 911 and get on the floor and roll.
The kid came home that day and his mom was taking a batch of burnt cookies out of the oven, immediately, he ran to the phone, called 911, and got on the floor and began rolling.
His mom was confused and took the phone.
39) Steamy cows
A kid apparently decided to call 911 because the cows in their area had steam coming out of their noses. Alarmed, he asked the operator about what happened.
It’s just one of the days where Wisconsin temperature are too low.
40) Mommy is a shooter
A little boy called 911 and told the operator that his mommy was shooting at them and that she had a gun.
What really happened was the two boys were playing nerf gun with mommy and she wasn’t going easy on them. Everything was cleared out and they got a good laugh about the story.
41) The brother who didn’t snore
A little boy got anxious when his older brother, who was watching him didn’t “snore”. He got so used to him snoring loudly that he thought his brother had died.
He called the police and when he saw them in front of their door, he began singing:
“bad boys bad boys whatchu gonna do, whatchu gonna do when they come for you,” while jumping up and down.
42) Lots of asteroids
A 4-year boy got alarmed and called 911 to report an asteroid was about to fall on the neighbor’s house.
It was 4th July and he was seeing fireworks and has mistaken them for asteroids.
43) His little baby sister
This little boy had a favorite Christmas tree ornament he called his baby sister. When his mom took down the tree and put all the Christmas decorations away he called 911 and reported that she put his ‘baby sister’ in a box in the basement.
The police came to investigate and his mom was pretty upset.
44) No excuses
This kid didn’t like it when his parents told him to do his homework and to stop making excuses.
So the little boy couldn’t find a pencil and was so scared that he called 911 sobbing.
“My parents will kill me!”
A dispatcher came and gave the little boy a pencil along with a business card for his parents. We all know what came in afterwards.
45) Where’s the pizza?
A 5-year old boy really wanted to order pizza but since the only number he knew was 911, he tried to order his cravings.
A cop came to his house and the little boy cried not because his parents were angry but because he doesn’t understand why there was no ‘pizza’!
46) Mommy’s shower rescue
This little boy dialed 911 just to let the operator know that mommy is in the shower. It was the perfect sound logic for a toddler but for the operator, this meant that the mom had an accident.
The mommy had the shock of her life when she heard the police trying to break the door down to come in and rescue her. We all know this kid wouldn’t have access to any phones after this.
47) Potty trained
The little boy called 911 to tell them know that he went ‘poop’ on the potty!
We’re pretty sure everyone was happy for his success!
48) Scary poop scooper
So this big brother chased his little brother whild holding a poop scooper. It looked like a shovel with a mouth so it was a bit scary for a toddler. The little boy panicked and “fake dialed” the police saying that his older brother was chasing him and is going to kill him.
In no time, the officers were at his doorstep. His dad and the officers gave them a lecture.
49) Ride horses together
The operator received a call from a little girl named Ariel, who just turned 4 and called 911 to ask (repeatedly) if the operator can ride horses with her.
When the mom found out, she was so embarrassed but we have to admit that it’s too adorable!
50) Murder most fowl!
A little girl was so upset when her grandmother killed a chicken for dinner. She decided to call 911 to report a murder and when they all found out that it was a chicken – they all had a good laugh.

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!
