Funny Makeup Fails From TikTok That Will Bring A Smile To Your Face

posted in: Makeup | 4

With another lockdown looming ahead of us, I thought it’s the right time to bring some light humour! Lockdowns are lonely and the thought of a virus travelling quickly through the air is frightening. Have a laugh and let out some stress watching these funny makeup fails!

1. Masks and lipsticks?


I always think it can be different THIS time… If I’m REAL careful. #makeupfail #maskwearing #lipstickfail #lipstick #makeup

Masks and lipsticks are just a no-no! Well, either that or you need to choose a non-transferable lipstick that dries quickly! Truth to be told, these days when I venture out I don’t bother with lipstick anymore. Really what’s the point when you need to cover them and no-one can see your lips? For me, it’s one less thing to do in the morning! Do you wear lipstick with a mask on?

2. Achieving Even Lipstick

I think we can all relate to the struggle of getting even lipstick at some point in our lives. Lipstick is definitely one of my ‘challenges’ when it comes to makeup! Even when my lipstick looks even, I over-analyse and usually end up messing it up! The trick I learnt to get the perfect lipstick is to follow my lipline- it makes it a whole lot easier!

3. Ooops

Poor girl, although I did have a good laugh at her expense! Getting long-lasting lipstick all over your face is more of a nightmare than anything else! I hope she didn’t have anywhere important to be that day, because if that would have been me, I would’ve without a doubt called in sick:))

4. Evening Makeup in the Day

Doing your makeup while you’re still sleepy can be a problem, at least this lovely woman ended up with nice makeup- I can definitely think of worse looks to end up with!

5. Prank

I would kill my boyfriend too if he did that:) Ye, I don’t have a boyfriend and my husband doesn’t dance, but you get the idea! To me looks like he did it by mistake, but either way, it was funny to watch and she has a sense of humour to laugh at it instead of blowing up as I probably would!

6. Where everything smudges

Ok, so she definitely did all her makeup fails on purpose, because let’s be real, she did! But, I think everyone can relate to that time when your eyeliner went wrong after doing a beautiful smokey eyeshadow, or when you finished your makeup and oops, your lipstick went half up your face! Yep, the frustrations of makeup. And of course, these things only happen when you’re in a huge rush!

7. Eyeliner fail

Eyeliner is another one of those makeup steps that often goes wrong. The worst is the more rush you’re in, the more likely you are to make a mistake. This always happens to me at the worst possible time, but you gotta laugh and go on!

8. Freckle Fail

One of the funniest TikToks I’ve seen! You know when you see someone do an amazing makeup hack, but when you try it out, it never seems to go right! Ye, that’s how most of the hacks I try, end up! One thing I don’t get, is why would she want freckles? I’d happily give her some of my freckles;))

9. Setting powder gone wrong

This makeup fail is pretty epic! That’s why when I do my makeup, my kids and husband know they’re not allowed to come within 5 metres of me! I haven’t had a fail like this one (yet), but I’ve had my setting powder end up all over the floor from over-loving family members being too affectionate! And how can you get angry with them when all they wanted was some love?!

10. Too Much Highlighter?

Somehow when you watch someone else do their makeup it always looks a heck of a lot easier! Tutorials always make it seem simple, that even beginners should be able to accomplish the look! Well, some of us know better, and most of us learn the hard way!

While this makeup fail is not technically a makeup one, I had to include it because it’s hilarious! I’m assuming she’s trying to wax the hairs from her nose, but correct me if I’m wrong. Either way, it’s clear her plan did not go quite as she had planned on it going! It is comical for us viewers, but I do wonder how she got the cotton wool out of her nose- especially if there was wax on it!

12. Don’t Cry!

Whether they’re happy tears or sad tears, I think we’ve all been there at some point in our lives, where we would do anything to not cry- only so that our makeup would stay on! Yep, that’s what happens when you spend way too long getting your look right! But, it’s all part of looking beautiful!

13. Eyeshadow Fail

This has gotta be one of the most frustrating and funny makeup fails! Her makeup was gorgeous, I can’t imagine her disappointment! But at least she got to make a funny TikTok!

My Thoughts

I hope you enjoyed the funny makeup fails that I compiled, and I also hope they’ve brought a smile to your face! They sure made me laugh! Having a sense of humour, at the end of the day is the most important thing. How you cope in life is all in the attitude which is still a work in progress for me!

    Good one Hollie!

    Aahhaha I didn’t expect lipstick to smudge all over the face like that, I was thinking that it’s a bit maybe like a small stain or two but no, it’s all over! You girls have it very hard with lipstick when masks are around, I guess not wearing any lipstick when going out do help. What about when you’re on a date, do you still put it on?

    Hi Hollie, I really had a great laugh! I think it could be me. Makeup is really a challenge for me, so I keep it mostly decent, a little mascara, foundation, eyebrows, and lipstick. That is for me enough. But I love your website. To see all the products I can purchase lifts up my woman’s heart. That is very beautiful! 🙂
