Failboat Friday: Poked Myself in the Eye with a Makeup Brush


Whilst looking through my makeup pictures, I noticed that I have a lot of old stuff that I didn't post because I screwed something up royally. Either the pictures didn't turn out, I looked like more of an idiot than usual in them, or I had a good idea for a makeup look but it just didn't turn out. I have decided to let some of these see the light of day on my blog on good old Fridays. I don't take makeup too seriously so I think it's fun to have a sense of humour about these things!

Today's crappy look was done in the summer of 2011. I had bought a new item from a Lise Watier collection. It was a lovely purple cream eyeshadow that came with glitter to stick on top of it. I cracked out some other Lise Watier shadow that I had to make a summery, colourful look. In the end, it turned out to be a poorly blended mess and the cream shadow creased and the glitter got everywhere. I also tried out a new mascara that sucked the big one and on top of that I poked myself in the damn eye with a makeup brush! Of course, the reason I was trying to do my makeup nicely was that I had a day off and was going shopping at Sephora and I wanted to take makeup pictures for my blog. When I looked at the pictures, almost ALL of them were blurry (and I took like a thousand). I thought maybe the makeup would look okay in the pictures but NOT SO MUCH. 


It started off so well....


Not so sure why I thought it would be a good idea to take a closeup of my raging red eye after I poked myself with a makeup brush! GROSS!


At least my lips looked nice.

OMG my gross red eye, it hurt quite badly, lol!
REALLY, I'm not at all sure why I even took pictures of this! I am going to try something similar to this look again because I see where I was going with this but I hope it turns out a lot better!

Have you ever looked through your makeup pics and been like, WTF??
Ever poked yourself in the eye with a makeup brush?


  1. Such a pretty look! Your eye does look sore though :/ I cannot even count the amount of times I've tried to photograph a look I've loved and the photos have all been crappy.

  2. Well your eye looks indeed a little red, but the overall look isn't that bed... I like the pastel rainbow!

  3. I really like this idea and the long shot looks really good. The first time I used mascara I jabbed it my eye... I didn't use it again for a long time afterwards!

  4. I poke myself in the eye all the time, ugh. Usually a mascara wand (horrible! Mascara on my contacts!) or a concealer brush as I'm trying to put it under my eyes. I'm really terrible at this, I don't know why I have a blog, LOL.

  5. I love the color combinations! It reminds me of cotton candy-- you should make an outfit around that, I'd love to see what you come up with.
    Dang does that look like it HURT >.<
    I can't remember the last time I poked my eye hard enough that it'd turn red-- I'm so blind without glasses I go slow regardless lol.

  6. Oh I do that all the time. My eyes are often horribly bloodshot for no apparent reason :/ But I think this still looks great! Besides red eyes are totally goffik :P

  7. Poor eyeball! I have definitely done both things (saved some wtf pictures and poked my eye) It's usually with a liner brush when I'm trying to go over my bottom liner with shadow. Then my eye cries off everything and it winds up being useless. That said, I still really like the color placement on this. The green especially!

  8. Woo! That looks painful! You must be like me -- I can ONLY take pics of one eyeball, my right one. And if anything happens to it, I'm screwed. Lol

  9. So painful poking your eye , it happens quite often to me ....
    And i have tons of pictures with looks that didn't make the final cut , just because they were too awful to post LOL
