Makeup looks great on your face. You know where it doesn't look so hot? Anywhere else. But since putting on makeup is sort of the grown-up version of finger-painting, it's bound to get a little messy at times. We've dealt with pretty much every makeup disaster you can think of -- the lipstick tube that came uncapped in a pocket, the Chanel powder that burst in the Chanel purse (oh, the irony), the nail polish bottle that fell on to the carpet-- you get the picture.
