I was inspired by the wonderful world of Twitter yesterday to do a blog post on ‘teenage beauty blunder’. God knows, I had more than my fair share of them! After seeing a couple of ‘tweets’ about them I thought I would do a post to ‘confess’ a few of mine…. just for laughs.
- My first foray into coloured eye shadow using a raspberry-pink Rimmel shade resulted in being asked if I had been crying.
- Once I wasn’t allowed to go into the canteen for lunch at high school till I removed my lilac eye liner. I think the lunch lady had the right idea.
- After reading in a magazine that you could curl your hair with dish cloths, I went out and bought a packet, preceded to rip them up into small strips and wrap my hair REALLY tightly in them. When removed I looked like I had been the victim of a strong electric shock.
- Along the same lines, at about age 13 I had my hair crimped and then decided to brush out my fringe- leaving me with a afro/frizz puff on my forehead.
I wont even get started on how my first attempts at fake tanning went…or how I only discovered hair straighteners at 19…
SO, now that I have shared (some) of mine, it’s your turn! What are your ‘teenage beauty blunders’… comment below 🙂
