When Pretty Girls Wear The Wrong Make-Up! 10 Celebs Who Can’t Get Their Faces Right

October 8, 2012  |  
1 of 10

I guess the saying is true…money can’t buy you everything. Well, at least when it comes to these celebs’ poor make-up choices! Either they need to spend the extra dollar or two on better make-up or someone needs to get fired! Let’s have a look at those women who have beautiful faces, but fall victim to bad make-up choices:



Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton is a good example of the reasoning that just because something exists, it doesn’t mean you should wear it. This woman is guilty of a little bit too much make-up. What’s up with the over the top blush and porcelain doll eye shadow? Well, just like those dolls, it makes her look a little too fake.

Come on girl, get it together!

Foxy Brown

Someone should ring the bell, because Foxy Brown’s battle with trying to stay relevant in the music business just ended with this atrocious looking appearance she made in New York with Nicki Minaj. Yes we know that she hasn’t been making that much money selling music lately, but we didn’t think it was so bad that she couldn’t even afford some decent make-up. Bright pink lipstick and abnormally drawn on eyebrows are not gonna cut it… and let’s not even get started on her suspect clothing choices…

Lauryn Hill

Just because your career is tanking, doesn’t mean your make-up has to. Somehow, Lauryn Hill’s make-up style has fallen victim to her downward-spiraling career. Sometimes it even looks like a child did her make-up for her…we wouldn’t be surprised considering she’s got so many.

Lil Kim

Lil Kim has definitely broken some rules of fashion more than once, but why does she have to break so many make-up rules too? If you’re going to make outrageous outfit choices, then at least make up for it with your pretty face. First of all, her too many layers of powder is always way too light for her actual skin tone…Second of all, she seems to think going for drag queen look suits her. She really needs to tone it down…as the saying goes; a little bit goes a long way.

Lark Voorhies

Say it ain’t so…the gorgeous Lark Voorhies who grew up right before our eyes on “Saved By the Bell” seems to have lost her way. We’re not going to say too much about this one because there are some rumors that she may be suffering from an illness. However, there has definitely got to be a better way to do her make up than this…

Christina Aguilera

There’s a reason they call her Xtina…and her outrageous make up is just another one of those reasons. For some reason, she chronically goes for that hooker/prostitute look. We can accept the thick layers of powder, but that bright red lipstick gots ta go!

This next woman also seems to be suffering from wrong lipstick syndrome. Someone should tell her that some colors are just not meant for everyone. Sorry girlfriend but those lips are just not working for you!


Nicki Minaj

Does she really surprise anyone anymore? Probably not…Nicki Minaj doing anything normal would just not be Nicki Minaj. She does look incredibly stunning sometimes…but other times she’s just a bit over the top. It’s safe to say that the less is more rule applies to her too.

Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks is living proof that just because you’re a model, it doesn’t mean you’re allowed to do whatever ever you want and call it modeling. Let’s face it; some things just don’t look good…including this look by Tyra Banks. In fact, it actually looks scary.

    so um.. nobody was gonna say anything about christina’s foundation being all up in her bleach blonde hair? SMH

  • Christina Aguilera needs to stop drawing her lip line right under her nostrils.

  • NessNess

    Lil Kim: why are u talking about her make up and not the awful plastic surgery?

  • NessNess

    Lauryn, Lauryn, Lauryn that was some good wing-wang cause Rastaman has had her messed up for years…..Damn that is some good…Sorry got distracted!

  • NessNess

    Forget her make up, where in the heck did her edges go??? Have you seen her without the wig? Maybe its running from the rouge!

  • Not that I know Lil Kim personally. It breaks my heart to see what she has done to herself. She was so cute when she first started.

  • MLS2698

    That outfit looks like it should be worn by the accomplice of the ” Hamburgler.” I do believe she walked out of the business because they were trying to steal her soul, though.

  • I think for as ridiculous Nicki looks 99.9% of the time, her make up is ALWAYS on point!

  • jackieOsassin

    i can’t with some of these…..especially lauryn’s. i just can NOT.

  • psylocke_2001

    Christina’s hairline was orange! Is she wearing a lace front with foundation caked into it? Bless her little big headed heart.

  • dbatt001

    Tyra scared the black off me

  • Gimmeabreak78

    Tamar Braxton, Christina Aguilera, and Niki Minaj consistently overdo it with the wigs/weaves and makeup. And although Niki Minaj usually looks like someone put Bozo the Clown’s head on a blowup doll’s body, at least she is actually going for an over the top look. I think Tamar and Xtina are a ratchet woman’s version of what an elegant woman looks like.

  • maggie

    I am going to have to defend my girl Kelis, sometimes she tries to look pretty (very easy for her) and sometimes she gets bored of going for the safe ‘pretty’ look. She is creative and the world is her play land. You can tell by her album covers, videos, outfits and yes, her makeup. She is what we call artistic.

    • ariesdollface

      i totally agree! Kelis’ renegade attitude, esp. in fashion & beauty, is part of her appeal

  • Nkontrolikejanet

    Tamar’s make-up makes her look like a ventriloquist doll. Jus saying (Kanye shurg)

  • Meyaka

    Tamar Braxton “the make up artist revenge ” coming to theaters near you..

  • Mikkalotious

    I will be so glad when Nicki Minaj moves on to a more mature level…if possible… she looks crazy at least 90% of the time. Without all of her crazy attire I think she kinda’ looks like she could be related to the true Queen Diva “Chaka Kahn”.

  • Mikkalotious

    I think Christina Aguilera looks ok… her lipstick is a little hard but her foundation is ok for her skin tone and her eyes a beautiful with the lashes.

  • Mikkalotious

    Yeah…Lauren Hill…that was the worst picture I have ever seen of her. I really don’t care for her fashionista either.

  • Mikkalotious

    Tamar should rid herself of those shades of pink on her face. Also, her foundation always appears to be too light.

  • Rebecca

    Lil Kim has to be the most tragic case on this list. Kelis and Tyra look like they are going to the same Halloween party.

  • kathicks01@yahoo.com

    Jeeeezzz….That Foxy Brown photo was atrocious….The LAST thing I noticed was her make-up

  • Na Na

    Oh Tyra

    • Mikkalotious

      wooooooo lawd….wwoooo or should I say (in my scarest voice) boooooo……booooo…..
