1. When you sneeze while your mascara is still wet.
WHY. WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE!?
2. When you accidentally pluck a brow hair that was crucial and the shape of your brow is RUINED.
There's no going back. Dear kilay, I'm so sorry! Please don't make tampo and not grow back. :(
3. When the world goes in slow motion as you drop your expensive bronzer to the floor and it explodes into a million, perfectly bronzed smithereens.
4. When you put the lid back on your favorite lipstick too fast and accidentally gouge a chunk out of it with the lid.
5. When you sharpen your eye pencil and it's all gone.
6. When the lashes on your right eye look perfect after mascara, but your left eye is a heinous clumpy mess.
Does lash symmetry even exist?

13. When you totally forget you'd gotten the perfect cat eye this morning (which took ages to get right) and then ruin them by rubbing your eyes without thinking.
14. When the lid comes off your lipstick in your bag and is totally unusable because it's all smushed and has fluff stuck to it.
And it's gone over everything in your bag. It's an all-round catastrophe.

15. When you smudge your freshly manicured nails.
