Ah, make-up. Sometimes it can make us feel like the sexiest lady in the room, all flawless Beyonce skin and power pout. Other times, it can make us want to scream and cry and punch a pillow.
Because when you’re a glamourpuss who takes a little more than a layer of moisturiser and a quick hair brush to get ready, you’ll know that all too often, beauty mistakes can happen.
