The makeup struggle is real, and you should never underestimate that fact. Millions of people work hard (and often fail) at delivering a serious makeup game on a daily basis. Since the invention of the tweet, the more lighthearted among them share their failure online in order to make the learning curve a little less steep for the rest of us. Of course, there are those chosen few who don’t have such mundane problems. Yet again, what kind of people are they? Although they are probably immortal and can walk on water, they don’t seem like much fun. For us mortals, here are some of the funniest makeup fails to ever found their way into a tweet.
