We all love a good makeup challenge, especially when they teach us a thing or two about certain beauty products. These challenges of 2016, on the other hand, are absolutely useless and teach us nothing at all… but just because we don’t love watching a train wreck doesn’t mean we have the strength to look away from it!
8. Boyfriend Does My Makeup Challenge
Of all of the insane makeup challenges, this is, by far, one of the most entertaining ones I’ve ever seen. The commentary and lack of skill on the boyfriend’s end creates a comical video that is sure to make you crack up (even if the look does suck).
7. Five Minute Makeup Challenge
Hallelujah! Alas, I’ve found a makeup challenge that could actually be useful. Who has ever slept through their alarm and realized they had a good twenty minutes to get for work or class? I know I have! So, knowing how to create some kind of a look in five minutes is worth the ten minute video, even if it doesn’t necessarily come out looking immaculate…
6. How I Did My Makeup In High School
I absolutely love this terrible makeup challenge. It just happens to be hilarious and super relatable. Don’t lie, you know you had numerous makeup faux pas back in high school.
5. Full Face Using Only Kids Makeup
Who came up with this? I will admit, this challenge is pretty creative, but it’s just another one that makes absolutely no sense. Like, what even is “kids makeup??”
4. Full Face Using Only Fingers
This one is definitely not the worst of the worst, but it’s up there on my list of things that I wouldn’t want to do. Putting makeup on with your fingers creates a huge mess and your makeup won’t exactly come out flawless.
3. Full Face of Makeup Using No Makeup
This is a little less crazy than the next two you are about to see, but equally pointless. Beauty YouTubers take items like Crayola crayons and colored pencils to create a horrific makeup masterpiece. Check this one out and judge for yourself.
2. Full Face Using Only Food Challenge
Oh, what a surprise! A disgusting and absolutely useless challenge made it on the list for worst makeup challenges of 2016. The name of this challenge also speaks for itself. You take foods like cinnamon and cornstarch and apply them as bronzer and mashed cherries for a rich blush. Check out this crazy one below:
1) 100 Layers of Foundation
This challenge is one of the worst of all time, much less 2016. The name of the challenge speaks for itself, you apply 100 (yes, 100) layers of foundation to your face. Not only is that time consuming, but it looks gross and takes the term “cake face” to a new level.
