I'm embarrassed to admit I've done well over half, but mostly when I was too young to know any better...

Only 5. How you go through life without getting lipstick on your teeth or your mascara in your eye though is beyond me.

no 28....the mumsnet haircut!

And maybe this should be in 'Style 'n' Beauty?

And how about 28 ridiculous mistakes men have made?

Londonista85 Fri 29-Nov-13 22:33:57

I've just realised I didn't even mention they are beauty mistakes. In my defence I've had a long week...

Is there a way of changing the title?

LalyRawr Fri 29-Nov-13 22:34:05


My excuse is that neither my mum or Foster mum wore make up, so had no guidance!

ThoseArentSpiritFingers Fri 29-Nov-13 22:35:08

I've only done 3... I think I'm just very unadventurous when it comes to make up though

BooMeowson Fri 29-Nov-13 22:35:56

Ha! 15! Most of the ones from my yoof before it was really popular for false eye lashes etc.

Didn't realise I had tried out so many make-up things (and failed at so many)

Londonista85 Fri 29-Nov-13 22:36:12

Beauty mistakes men have made? I could write that list.

Mistakes men have made generally? I could write that list as well.

Sorry if I've put this in the wrong place, is there a way to move it?

BrianTheMole Fri 29-Nov-13 22:36:25

14, (in the days I used to bother about make up and stuff). In the past ten years or so though, zero!

Report yourself op and ask for it to be moved.

Bunbaker Fri 29-Nov-13 22:37:21

Just three. Most of them are too stupid.

Longdistance Fri 29-Nov-13 22:39:52

Two <wipes brow> phew!

Londonista85 Fri 29-Nov-13 22:40:00

I've asked for it to be moved. Cheers!

5 but then I don't care too much about beauty.

What is wrong with block highlights? I thought the picture looked quite nice (should I be ashamed now??)

KungFuBustle Fri 29-Nov-13 22:40:16

It's chat! It's not in the wrong place.

I've done most except the fake tan and bronzing ones.

1. Lipstick on teeth.

We're just going to trundle this over to style and beauty.

Hilarious that the OP is getting bollocked for putting this in the 'wrong' place.

It's chat fgs! Nothing wrong with it being here.

And I doubt that many men have left the house with lipstick on their teeth so I don't see the problem with it being about women's mistakes.

Calm the fuck down, it's Friday - cheers!

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Fri 29-Nov-13 22:43:03

8 but then am quite limited in my makeup choices

magimedi Fri 29-Nov-13 22:43:39

Well done for getting it moved! wine (which won't aid mistakes grin )

NoComet Fri 29-Nov-13 22:45:12

I frequently cut my own fringe too short much to DDs disgust.

In my defence I wear glasses and my fringe is only ever the right, just not touching, length for a couple of days.

Gawd 21!

Plus lots they haven't mentioned. (Home hair dying, anyone?)

RedLondonBus Fri 29-Nov-13 22:47:46
