Makeup - when applied correctly, it can take you from basic to banging, but if you're not careful, it can also leave you looking a hot mess. Here are 8 celebs who maybe should have checked the mirror one more time before heading out for the night.
1. Giuliana Rancic
This pic of Giuliana is a perfect example of one of the most common makeup struggles: thinking that your dramatic makeup looks awesome in the bathroom mirror at home, only to go out into the world and find out that it's way too harsh.
2. Nicole Kidman
If ever there was a time for contouring, it's now. Adding warmth to her face could have done wonders for Nicole's overall look here.
3. Kim Kardashian
Kim may be a master of the contour, so we don't know what happened here.
4. Miley Cyrus
Who among us hasn't forgotten to blend our loose powder every now and again? (Peep the whiteness in Miley's chin area.)
5. Angelina Jolie
The loose powder strikes again, this time at Angelina Jolie's Normal Heart premiere. Embarrassing much?
6. Nicki Minaj
Nicki may have forgotten to blend her makeup here, but she's still one of the hottest female rappers in the game.
7. Uma Thurman
Ugh, Uma found herself in some very unkind, harsh lighting here. What is it with celebrities and the white loose powder, anyway?
8. Jennifer Lopez
Jenny from the block definitely had a misstep with this look that relies on spider lashes, ultra thin brows, and a lip color that disappears into her face in the worst possible way.
