Katherine Heigl's wardrobe malfunction last week has now hit a soft spot in one Real Beauty staffer's heart. Being born with the curse of two left feet, she fell this past weekend and is now left with a rather embarrassing rug burn looking mark all across her chin.
Get tips to cover any type of skin flaw.
Luckily, we aren't celebrities and can hide in the confines of our cubicles. Poor Katherine had to stand in front of hundreds of people, with only Billy Bush's hands protecting her ta-tas from popping up on every gossip site around the country.
We've all had a beauty disaster, whether it was a dress related accident, or more likely a skin, hair, or makeup mistake. How many times have you woken up on the day before a presentation with a huge pimple? Or went through an entire meeting with lipstick on your teeth? It happens! The next time you find yourself in a beauty blunder, try one of these tips from Dara Klein, New York City makeup artist to get out of it:
Your mascara runs: First, don't rub! Instead, use a premoistened cotton swab and remove the runny excess. Reapply your concealer and set with powder. And if you know tears are going to be involved (i.e. a wedding, watching The Notebook), save yourself the trouble and buy a tube of the waterproof stuff.
Messy lipstick: Apply a thin coat of lipstick with a lip brush starting in the center of your lips. Next, gently apply pressed powder on top of the first layer to seal it in. Reapply another layer of color on top to finish. Opt for a cream formula like CoverGirl Continuous Color Lipstick.
Shiny skin: There is nothing worse than looking like you could fry an egg on your forehead. Klein suggests always having some blotting papers on hand. Press, don't rub the paper on your skin so the rest of your makeup stays in place.Try on Katherine Heigl's new hair color for free.
