Everyday women have to get ready in the morning, put on their business casual clothes, and head into the office. There are a lot of mishaps that can occur during this process. Keep reading to see some of the most comedic and relatable events women have gone through.
Beware The Claw
Hair clips come in all different shapes and sizes, but there is one that stands out from all the rest. The hair ‘claw’ is a clip with pronged edges that effectively holds your hair in place. However, when these fall on the floor, which the inevitable do, they can be very painful to step on.
It’s kind of like stepping on a piece of Lego. Always keep an eye out for a wayward hair clip, you do not want to experience the pain of the ‘claw.’
The Smudge Protector
It can take an hour or more to get your makeup applied just right. The finishing touch is always lipstick or lipgloss. Once you’re ready to go out, you may realize you’re a bit peckish.
To avoid any lipgloss smudges, you have to eat with your lips held as high and as low as possible. You may look a bit like a horse, but at least your makeup will stay pristine.
The Lipstick Tester
When it’s time to buy a new lipstick, there is only one place to go — the makeup aisle at your favorite store. This magical place has every shade of lipstick under the sun, with testers to try out. Most women opt to test the lipstick shades on their hands or wrists, because nobody wants the germs from sharing a tester tube with a stranger.
This is a great way to see what shades work best, with different skin tones. After testing all those lipsticks, your hand can be covered in different colors, which makes keeping your clothes free of lipstick difficult. Always travel to the store with a wet wipe to remove all the color, after you find your perfect shade.
The Sunglass Snag
Anybody with long hair knows that sunglasses have a tendency to snag. Whether you are out on a windy beach, or simply walking to work, a piece of your hair will get snagged in the groove between the arm and the lenses. That snag can be a bit uncomfortable, as you have to carefully unwind your hair from the grooves.
If you’re unlucky, you won’t notice that your hair is caught, and will end up pulling a few strands out when you take your glasses off. There isn’t really anyway to avoid this situation, unless you always keep your hair slicked back in a bun.
A Little Bit Of TLC
Working all week is rewarding, but it can also be a bit stressful. Everyone needs to take some time to relax, and just be alone. Everyday is spent talking to coworkers, family, and friends which doesn’t leave a lot of spare time for some “me time.” We all need to sit back, and relax in a bath with a face mask on once in a while.
Every woman knows that an hour or even an entire spent pampering yourself will leave you refreshed, and ready to take on the week to come. Copy this chihuahua, and make sure to alot yourself some much needed time for TLC.
Think Before You Cut
It’s always good to try new styles, and colors when it comes to your hair. You never know how you will look with a bob, or with a platinum blonde dye job until you do it. However, a lot of women realize that they tend to like their hair long.
Before you go short, try using one of the many hairstyle apps to give you an idea of how you will look with short hair. Always remember though, hair grows back, even if you don’t love your new ‘do!
The Pricey Side Of Makeup
Men don’t seem to realize that good makeup costs money. Concealer than blends well, retinoids that work on fine lines, and eyeliner that doesn’t smudge all cost big bucks. $80 worth of makeup does not go very far these days, since most brands have products that are $20 or more.
Looking your best, if it is with makeup does not come cheap. That is one thing that men should remember when giving a makeup gift certificate!
Fancy Versus Comfy
Women have the ability to completely transform themselves. Everyone likes to be a couch potato, and lounge around in their sweatsuits with no makeup. However, for most women they have two looks — the couch potato and the fashionista.
You either look like you haven’t showered in awhile, or that you are ready for a night out on the town. Always give a woman a heads-up if she needs to make herself look glamorous, it takes a few hours.
Professional makeup artists at Sephora and MAC, really like to make their customers look completely different. Whenever they ask if you want a makeover, you know you are going to be walking out of the store with a full face of makeup.
The ‘look’ is always a bit over the top, but it’s a lot of fun to see what you would look like if you were a model on a runway. This is a great way to try out a bunch of expensive products, without having to buy them. Always say “Yes!” to the free makeovers.
Time To Unload
It can be hard to verbalize exactly what you are feeling in a relationship. A lot of the time you feel happy, but sometimes there are issues that need to be addressed. Most boyfriends know that when it’s time to talk, there is going to be a lot to unload and unpack in the conversation.
When you ask a woman what’s wrong, be prepared to answer all of her questions, about everything, from what is bothering her at that moment, to something that happened five months ago.
Always Replace The Roll
For any woman who lives with a man, then this picture will look very familiar. If there is one thing most men forget to do, it is replace the empty toilet paper roll when it’s finished.
There is nothing worse than doing your business, or needing to wipe-off some makeup only to realize that there is no tissue. Men need to be mindful of this, and always replace the roll once they notice it is gone. Everyone needs toilet paper after all.
The Perfect Shade
Going shopping for new lipsticks and eyeshadow is a ton of fun. You get to try out different palettes on your hands and inner arm, to see what shades work the best with your skin.
These cupcakes have enough dye in their icing, that they look like they would be perfect shades to try out as eyeshadow. This person is obviously going to have a Euphoria-esque look if they end up using colors like this in real life.
Most women have gotten pretty good at giving themselves an at-home manicure. Not only is it pretty easy to do, but it’s also cheap. The only things you need to buy are nail polish, and a manicure kit.
After painting your nails perfectly, there is one thing that most women have experienced — the smudge. There is nothing worse than accidentally rubbing a freshly painted nail on your pants, or when opening a drawer only to have it smudge. Always let your nails dry.
The Imperfect Fit
When it comes to buying clothes, most women know how hard it is to find that perfect fit. Sometimes the waist is too loose, and the legs are just right or the legs are too baggy and the waist is perfect.
All women know that it can take hours, and hundreds or stores to find clothes that mold to your body. We don’t know why the sizing at every store is different, imagine how much easier it would be if all stores had the same sizes.
The Quick Fix
One of the most fun parts of a night out, is the getting ready part. You and your friends get to apply your makeup together, have a few drinks, and talk about all of the fun you are going to have. Women are exceptionally good at finding surfaces to place their makeup bags on, and it doesn’t matter where they are.
Bathrooms are the perfect place for a quick makeup application, and the back of toilet seats are a natural shelf. Just make sure to sanitize the area, if you’re going to put your makeup there.
Chipped Tooth Or Chipped Nail?
Cracking open a can of soda on a hot day, or sitting in front of your television is a necessity. A nice cool beverage is the perfect way to relax. Women know that using your nails, whether they are fake or real is a real no-no when it comes to opening a can.
Your fake nail can come off, or your real nail can chip. That’s why some women opt to use their teeth. Be careful with this trick though, you don’t want to chip a tooth.
Don’t Get Burnt
One of the best ways to keep skin looking youthful, is by wearing sunscreen. Sunburns and tanning can lead to fine lines, and wrinkles which nobody wants. This girlfriend asked her boyfriend to throw in a bottle of sunscreen for the beach, but he misunderstood.
Instead, he threw in a sunshirt, which means not only was her body protected from the sun, but so was her head with the hood. Something was definitely lost in translation here, it’s hard to go swimming in a sunshirt.
The Broken Hearts Club
All women have favorite products, and a powder with a compact mirror inside is one of the most important. Pulling out your compact for a quick makeup fix, and a dab of powder is something most women are familiar with.
That’s why it can be a bit upsetting to find out your favorite powder has broken. The good news is that with a bit of water, and moisturizer you can turn that powder into a cream blush or bronzer. Crisis averted!
Don’t Clog The Drain!
Luscious long hair is one of the most coveted hairstyles by women. Having long hair does come with a few problems though. Whenever that hair needs to be washed, some of the long strands will come out in your hands.
You don’t want that hair to end up in the drain, and clog it. That means that every longhaired woman’s shower wall will be covered in hair. It’s the best place to stick your hair while you shower, and keep the drain from getting all clogged up. It is a bit gross looking though.
Kids And Makeup
If there is one thing kids love to play with, it’s their mom’s makeup. A colorful palette is irresistible, probably because it is a lot like paint. This woman’s child found her colorful glitter palette, and decided it was time to do their makeup.
It was only after their mom found them, and the broken palette that they realized the mistake they had made. Always hide your palettes, or put them away up high. Little hands will find anything colorful, if they aren’t hidden.
Technology gets better and better everyday. There are applications for new hairstyles, and for makeup. Sephora’s beauty app is great for trying new shades of blush and lipstick on.
There are just a few kinks that need to be worked out, like the fact that blush shouldn’t be placed in round circles on your cheeks. The last time we checked, clown makeup wasn’t in fashion, but who knows, maybe next season it will be.
Too Much Choice
For women who are into beauty products, specifically palettes, then it’s pretty hard to stop yourself from buying new ones. Each day TikTok influencers post about new palettes that you have to have.
This person loves their palettes, but when you buy a palette online you can never be sure the colors will work with your skin tone. Sometimes you just have too many palettes, which can be overwhelming. Basic neutrals work for everyone, always remember that.
Sheet masks, which originated in the Asian beauty market have made their way into the West. These amazing little masks can do anything from moisturizing your skin, to dealing with unwanted acne.
For some reason, this woman’s husband decided to give her a bunch of sheet masks. We can’t help but wonder with her, if her husband thinks she needs to work on her skin? He was probably just doing something nice.
Is The Gold Worth It?
Gold is an expensive substance that is used for jewelry, baking, and now face masks. Some face masks have incorporated gold flecks or dust, as one of their key ingredients. That makes this face mask cost a whopping $130.
We have to admit, we’re a bit confused as to what the cold is supposed to do for your skin? It doesn’t seem like it would hydrate that well, and absorbing metals isn’t necessarily good either. It must just provide a nice golden glow.
Too Many Creases
Baggy pants are the most comfortable things to wear, but sometimes we need to don our business clothes and tights. While this might look nice, taking them off at the end of the day is even nicer.
However, there is one thing that all women have after wearing tight clothes all day — creases. These creases are on your belly, ankles, and sometimes even your legs. You’ll always know where your clothes were the tightest by these creases.
Mascara has to be one of the greatest makeup creations in the world. It can make anyone’s eyes pop. That being said, it is also a bit tricky to apply.
You have to make sure you don’t blink, or sneeze. If you do, all of that carefully applied mascara is going to be smeared across your upper eye, and under eye.
You can never have too many skincare products, afterall skin is the largest organ on the body. Some people love skincare so much that even their Sims character has to share in the addiction.
Luckily for this woman, she can just live vicariously through her Sims character. It would be pretty pricey to actually own all those products.
The Hair Tie Badge
All women know that you need to have a hair tie on your wrist at all times. Long or medium length hair always needs to be put up, whether you are at work or out for a run.
The trusty hair tie on your wrist is always ready. All women have experienced the noticeable circular indent on their wrists, after using their hair tie.
Social media always shows influencers prancing around in bikinis, with a full face of makeup on. This can sometimes give women unrealistic expectations of what beauty is supposed to look like. Everyone is beautiful in their own right, no matter what your body looks like.
If you want to wear a bikini from your favorite brand, don’t worry about whether or not you’ve been hitting the gym. Put that bikini on, add a touch of confidence, and rock it! Body positivity is something every woman needs to have, as women and men come in all different shapes and sizes.
Over the years there have been a lot of different eyebrow trends, and methods for managing them. Threading and microblading are now the go to for perfect brows.
Nothing feels better than looking in the mirror, and seeing your perfectly trimmed brows staring back at you. Tweezing eyebrows just doesn’t have the same effect that threading or microblading does.
