10 Colossal Beauty Fails None of Us Can Escape (GIFS)

zit#BeautyFails: None of us are immune. No matter how hard we try to look our best (or at least decent enough to leave the house without alarming people), there's always some unforeseen circumstance waiting to undo all that careful primping and planning!


Don't feel too bad: Even celebs with high-priced stylists have been known to make the occasional beauty blunder (nothing like walking down the red carpet with too-pale face powder in need of blending, right Angelina Jolie??). Indeed, at some point or another, we're all doomed to face the following inevitable beauty truths:

1. You will somehow manage to smudge your perfectly pristine new manicure in the five seconds between leaving the salon and getting into your car.


2. You will wake up with a shiny red pimple on the tip of your nose on the morning of your 20-year high school reunion.

3. The humidity level will surge to 300% on the day you paid $50 to have your hair blown out.

4. The first day you wear those perfect white jeans, you'll sit down on the train without realizing that the previous passenger apparently dropped a slice of pizza facedown on the seat.

5. If you splurge on that amazing bandage dress for the office holiday party even though you really shouldn't be spending the money, your boss will show up wearing the same exact dress (only she'll look better in it).

6. Every time you try to ditch your usual eyeliner and cheek stain for a "natural" look, everybody thinks you're coming down with the flu.

7. The one day you wear your Scooby-Doo pajama pants to run errands is the day you run into your ex from college (the one who dumped you for a runway model).

8. The sorta sheer dress that looks perfectly fine without a bra in the mirror at home will turn into a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen when you get to your 5-year-old niece's birthday party.

9. The fake eyelashes you so carefully applied before Girls' Night Out will come loose (on one eye only) about halfway through the evening but your friends won't tell you because they don't want you to be embarrassed.

10. Buying a one-size-too-small outfit never means you'll actually lose the weight you need to before you can wear it, it just means you'll tell yourself you lost the weight and try to wear it anyway.
