What Not to Do: 13 Hair & Makeup Mistakes We've Been Guilty Of

Here's what bad '80s bangs, scary eyebrows and leathery skin have taught us

Wow!  Some of these are just crazy!  What would you say has been/was your biggest beauty blunder?  I think mine would have to be sky-high (and super crunchy!) bangs in the 80's.  Boy could I pack on the hairspray!

I don't consider following the trends of the times to be beauty blunders.  It's when people cling to those trends or consistently do things that look bad in any era (dark lipliner! unblended bronzer! bronzer on pale people!) that are real blunders.

Mine was wearing a foundation that was too dark about 10 years ago.  I thought it was fine and used it for months.  One day I was sitting at a stop light in my car and looked in the vanity mirror and realized, oh my goodness, I've been wearing this shade for months and it is ALL WRONG.  I was so embarrassed - and annoyed that DH didn't tell me!
