Out of all the different parts of our daily makeup routines, the one with the greatest potential to go very, very wrong is brows. While #MakeupFails can happen — like accidentally stabbing yourself in the eye with your mascara wand or failing at your contour game — brows can truly make or break your look. And if a bad look goes documented — let’s say on Instagram or those dreaded tagged photos on Facebook — you’ll probably have nightmares about it every now and then for years to come.


Clearly, we’ve all had our share of beauty blunders, and as simple as filling in your brows with an eyebrow pencil or eyebrow mascara seems, there’s definitely still room for straight up failure. See all nine of our favorite #EyebrowFail tweets ahead — and know that you are not alone.

My nana can’t see very well and instead of using her eyebrow pencil she used her wee green eyeshadow pencil... this women never fails to surprise me 😂😂😂

I know you're eyebrows are supposed to be "sisters not twins" but mine are 3rd cousins at best.#makeupfail #isuckatmakeup #browsnotonfleek

note to self: if you're exhausted and its way past bedtime, plucking your eyebrows is not a wise decision. #eyebrowfail
