The Worst Makeup Advice You've Ever Received

What's the Worst Makeup Advice Anyone's Ever Given You?

Whether you read about it in a magazine or listened intently as a makeup artist doled out tips at the counter, I'm sure at some point or another you've received some pretty terrible makeup advice—am I right or am I right?

Someone once told me that I should wear a darker foundation to "add a bit of colour" to my complexion. Then there was the time, back when I was a teenager and purple lipstick was all the rage, that someone declared it was "my colour". Needless to say, both were epic fails.

I'm sure all of us can say we've made a few errors in judgment so what's your story?
