15 Comments You Should Never Say About Someone’s Makeup

It doesn’t matter how bad someone’s makeup is, you should never say one of these eye roll-inducing lines. They are as annoying as telling people what’s wrong with their eyebrows. Someone with crooked eyeliner may not have realized that there are tips to correct shaky hands. Or maybe they haven’t figure out how to contour their faces properly a la Kim Kardashian? (Contouring is difficult and can go wrong very easily). It’s fine to subtly drop a few hints about how to apply mascara to your bottom lashes without it smudging. And you should definitely tell someone if they have white powder all over their face, because that certainly isn’t intentional. Just please be kind and don’t say these comments about someone’s makeup:

1. Your skin looks good today.

2. That mascara makes your eyes look so much bigger.

3. I didn’t know they still sold plum lipstick.

4. How many different colored eyeshadows do you have?

5. That foundation makes you look really tan.

6. Who are you trying to impress with that lipstick?

7. That blush makes you look healthy.

8. I didn’t know you wear makeup.

9. Do they actually make foundation in that pale of a shade?

10. Are those your real eyelashes?

11. That eyeshadow makes you look less tired.

12. Look at you! You must be going out somewhere fancy tonight.

13. You look like a different person.

14.  That concealer does a really good job of covering your dark circles.

15. That red lipstick means that you’re high maintenance.

    Shit, the “your skin looks good today” is one of my favorite comments EVER. I’m like “Thank you!!!! Omg Seriously THANK YOU!!!!! Can I…..can I hug on you for a minute??!”

      I want people to say “my skin always looks good” because when they say “today” I think it must look like crap most of the time (which it probably does).

    • Samantha Escobar

      I usually get excited about it except then those are always the same people who ask if I’m “okay” when I don’t wear blush :(

  • Alana Vincenza

    My favorite makeup comment occurs after I do my full face for the day and someone tells me I look tired.

  • loser_sneeze

    The Gizmo gif in 13 is killing me. That face is so appropriate for the offending comment.

    I remember getting ” so do you like match your eyeshadow to your shirt everyday or something?” from this clueless idiot girl I worked with, ya… yup,thats it hun

  • blh

    Lol, so apparently no one should ever talk to you. Most of these aren’t offensive at all. Just need something to bitch about?

  • yousuck

    Most of these aren’t even insults. A bunch of them are compliments, even. What a stupid list!
