What could possibly be your worst nightmare? Surrounded by snakes or stepping out with a scary makeup? Any girl reading this would be dreaded by the very thought of her makeup gone wrong! I have a similar story to share which is utterly hilarious 😉
It was my hubby’s best friend’s wedding and he wanted me to look the best among the couples. Afterall, wedding is the time where we get to make people jealous ;P Anyways, we started working out like maniacs to look fit and splurged in beauty and makeup. I was bored of the regular sarees and gaudy suits people wore on such occassions and so I picked a beautiful orange floral-print lehenga with a mirror-work blouse.
I never went to the parlor for makeup except my on my wedding. But this time, I decided to get my makeup and hair-do done from the parlor. So I called up Page3 in my town and booked a MAC makeup + hairdo. I treated my skin with a facial two days before and so my skin was glowing that day.
The moment I stepped in, a lady took me without wasting time. She seemed to be in a hurry to go home after the shift. But apart from me there was a bride, who was waiting for her makeup. The lady quickly started blending the MAC foundation on her skin and then she jumped towards me and did the same. For a second I was blank! But then I realized that she had used the same sponge for both of us, without even washing it! The other lady had severe acne on her face and I felt like throwing up already 🙁 I told her not to overdo as my skin is very sensitive and it tends to breakout fast. She plainly ignored my suggestions and continued to paint my face. When I showed my displeasure, she said that the makeup would set in sometime. Then she took a hue of eye shadows and started painting golds, oranges and glitters! By this time, I had almost surrendered and started believing that the end would be pretty though!
I was almost done and so I called my hubby to pick me up. He was all excited to see the love of his life all dolled up. While waiting for him, there were three other people- two girls and an elderly women, in that room, giving me weird glances. I thought, they were purely jealous, until he stepped in! The over-excited me wanted to know how I was looking. He got nervous and took me to the car and exclaimed, “Yeh kya kiya?!!!” I was almost numb and furious at the same time. He clicked a picture to show me the disaster, I just paid for 😀 It was a blunder! I looked like an Asian Paint’s shade card 😛
On reaching home, I hid my face with a stole and ran upstairs into my room. Hubby gave me the courage to undo and redo it properly. Here is a list of things I did to fix my makeup,
- Took a generous amount of almond oil and wiped all the makeup off my face
- Cleansed it again with Neutrogena Deep-Clean Foaming Face Wash to remove every spec of it
- Rubbed two ice-cubes all over my face and neck and relaxed for a while
- Started with applying L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Primer
- Brushed Bellapierre Mineral Foundation-Cinnamon, for a semi-matte finish
- Put on Chambor Fiery Red Lipstick
- Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drams Gel (Black) for the eyes
- Highlighted with Colorbar Spotlight
- Blushed Maybelline Cheeky Glow-Peachy Sweetie
Thankfully, I fixed everything and was good to go 🙂 Here is a picture of showing what I looked like before and after 😉
Caution: Not for faint-hearts! 😛 😛 😀 😀
