It happens - the clumping of your lashes, the uneven foundation, the purple eyeshadow on the brow that looks like a bruise. Whatever the reason (usually you're in a rush), this quiz will remind you of makeup mishaps so you can banish them from your beauty routine.
Ever wonder when makeup started ruling our world? It began with the Ancient Egyptians, who wore the first recorded eyeliner-like substance called "mesdemet," which was a mixture of copper and lead ore, to trace their eyes. It was worn by both men and women. Methods to accentuate our best facial features were created back then and continue to evolve.
In America, the mass production of makeup occurred in 1915 when Maurice Levy invented the metal container for lipstick. By the 1920s, dark, sultry eyes, red lipstick, red nail polish and a suntan glow became the style when Coco Chanel and flappers were the fashionistas of the time. Decade after decade added more color, gloss and shimmer, until the years when, as fashion always does, the style changed to become natural with a glow. Yet throughout the decades, along with the makeup, there have been lapses in loveliness. See how many of these makeup mistakes you can identify. Get more than 20 correct and you're a makeup maven!
