Kasia M 7 May 2019

Looking good is everyone's goal and some of us are much better at it than others. There are those who spend countless hours in front of the mirror. And then there are those, usually me, who spend less than five minutes.

But many of us have tried some new beauty routine here and there only to fail at it miserably. So, let's sympathize with these epic beauty fails together.

Applying those brow creams is a skill, people. So try not to laugh too hard at this poor attempt at it. It happens.

This looks like an epic nail polish fight or arts and crafts gone wrong. Either way, practice makes perfect. You'll get it.
