In the course of her life, the 75-year-old Linda Herring from Johnson County, Iowa, has been a foster parent over 600 times. The kids that Linda took care of and gave food, shelter, and love to often had special medical needs. Alongside helping all these children, Linda raised five of her own. The astonishing acts of kindness of this woman are what foster care needs all over the world.
What Is Foster Care?
Fostering a child means providing them with temporary care. At the same time, the birth family members work on improving their situation so the child can return to a safe and healthy environment. The 75-year-old Iowan was not only making sure her foster children had food, clothes, and specialized medical care, but at one point, she was also running a home daycare. She was even working as a high-school custodian in the evenings.
Taking Kids With Medical Needs
Linda wanted to focus on taking care of kids that were both young and had special medical needs. She talked to the local county’s Department of Human Services, and they agreed to give her the chance to focus on care for little children with different medical conditions.
In 2017, Iowa was 6th in the United States for children in foster care, and nearly 40% of them required mental health medication. Linda was one of the most dedicated foster parents throughout these years and made sure she kept clothes of different sizes at hand so that the kids had clothes waiting for them as soon as they arrived. She would cook them warm meals and give them clean clothes as if they were her own children.
Retiring From a Lifetime of Being a Parent
In 2019, Linda chose to retire from her job as a foster mom due to health concerns. After the announcement of her decision, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors decided to honor the woman in an appreciation ceremony for her 50-year-long service and parenting over 600 children in need.
All over social media, social events, and TV shows, many individuals have appeared with a poor choice of foundation color or wrongly drawn eyebrows. While many of these awful makeups are self-caused, several resulted from makeup artists who have done botched jobs.
She Needs a Nike Endorsement
Her brows are clearly shaped like the signature Nike design. If the brows were the only problem, maybe she wouldn’t have made the list, but it’s a lot more than that.
The thickness of the foundation is excessive, the tone of color used is too different. Overall, she pretty much looked like a doll.
The Lighthouse Brows
Doing makeup at home should be simple and casual to avoid huge mistakes that make one look like a clown. These glittering brows remind one of a light-house in a fog. The brows will definitely shine through the heavy fog and darkness.
The error also affects the shape of the brows – they look almost as big as the wings of penguins. The awkward brow was then highlighted to further show the world this ridiculous face painting she’ll most likely call makeup.
In a bid to hide facial blemishes, many apply too much makeup – using excess layers of foundation to make the face smooth and perfect. The first image showing the individual without makeup makes one wonder what the lady was thinking of when applying the makeup.
She went from having a beautiful face sprinkled with lovely freckles to become a doll. Was she trying to achieve the signature look of Ariana Grande? Perhaps she should have employed the help of a professional instead of going on a failed “do it yourself” project.
Shocking and Horrible
It’s unexplainable how the beautiful girl in the first frame could change to the clown on the right side of the split image. The problem all started with extra-large brows.
The satire design looks horrible and not a bit pleasing. Asides from the eyebrows, the highlight of the lips area is basically a good choice of Halloween outlook – so if the makeup is meant for a Halloween party then this clown-look is so fitting, but if not, then a million things are wrong.
The Moulded Face
The face is apparently soaked and excessively filled with foundation. The collar is smeared with foundation, and from the look of things, it’s pretty obvious that the shirt can never turn white no matter the amount of time it spends in the washing machine.
And isn’t that a school uniform? One won’t be surprised if she starts to claim that’s her natural face. But of course, the thickness of her pancaked face, her glossy mouth, and the eyelashes will definitely betray her.
Hilarious Geisha Makeup vs. Actual Geisha Makeup
Trying to copy things without learning them perfectly can result in something funny. The common Geisha makeup is a popular thing in some parts of Asia.
Merely looking at a picture or a tutorial video, it’s easy to think it’s a simple design. However, the outcome may just be as funny as the first picture in the split image. Apart from the red lips, the rest is just not right. If a little red lipstick is drawn near the corner of the lips, then there goes a Joker Lady.
Even the Celebrities Are No Different
Watching popular reality shows that were successful and lucrative, one would expect perfection in some basic things; the hair, nails, and the make-up. These images bring to mind the popular reality show on E!
What were the K-women thinking about not hiring a professional for make-up? Look at the face, then check out the hand – what contrast in skin tone. The face looking so tanned while the hand is a lot lighter. Well, maybe the makeup artist was indisposed that day or was out of town.
The City’s Worst Mua
Haha! Merely looking at her makes one laugh heartily, but seeing the overpainted face on the handheld device is a lot funnier. A viral video on YouTube shows the details of her makeup session.
It comes as no surprise that she ranks among the worst makeup in some reviews considering the wrong tools used for the process. In one of her videos, pencil eyeliner was used instead of liquid eyeliner for some specific spots. Above all the color blend is similar to that of country flags (even some are more beautiful).
A Face Mask
It’s hard to believe this is makeup, not a face mask. While the facial color is apparently too thick, it wouldn’t have been so bad if it also covered the neck and chest area.
However, the difference in complexion and the makeup is so glaring. It feels more like she dipped her face in soft mud. Or more like she had a turmeric mask on her face. Looking at her again, one feels deeply sorry for her – a gentle and lovely face heavily smeared with ugly makeup.
This Is Just Scary
The darker lip liner is the first turn off on this hilarious face. The decision of making the lip look so ancient and ugly is the first sign of poor makeup. Then the orange color with the touch around the eyes is all just too bad.
This is simply scary, nothing else than scary. Whoever wants to scare a bunch of kids during playtime can simply print this picture and make it a mask – it will do the trick just fine.
Even a Kid Knows This Is Wrong
The shirt is lovely, the lapel pin attached to the jacket is beautiful. After dressing so nicely, it’s sad to see the face looking all messed up and not an inch lovely.
Two shades of foundations of different colors were used, making the color so excessive and didn’t even extend to the neck area. The neck had a slightly pink color, while the face is almost bronze. Just so many things are wrong. It’s about time people started hiring professionals.
Muddy Muddy Makeup
We will talk about the muddy foundation later, but right now the color choice is the concern. Why in the world will she choose two different foundation colors that do not match in any way.
Then to worsen matters she applied excess foundation at the lower part of the face and forgot to smoothen it well. Overall, it’s simply a disappointing look. People need to stop trying makeup after watching 5 minutes of videos on YouTube.
Too Many Details and All Seem Ugly
Can one see it all? No, because people never stop doing funny makeup. Just look at the multiple colors around the eyebrows – this a pictorial way to describe a rainbow.
While the lashes are good looking, the lip part is nothing worth appreciating. The black line on the lip is arguably similar to a mustache, and it runs to the side of the lips, it becomes a lot funnier and more disappointing.
This Is So Bad
Is that an exclamation mark on her nose? It’s certainly one of the numerous flaws on her face. Taking a closer look, it feels more like the face was smeared with plenty of baking powder. Or perhaps the glittering face was photoshopped.
Maybe if one had too much to drink then the face will not look so bad. The funny look is so evident. No doubt, this poorly made face needs tons of correction to look a bit appealing. Better still she could go without make-up.
This is another failed project. Just about everything is wrong – totally wrong. Imagine her closing her eyes – it would only look worse – more like having black holes in the eyes. Assessing the brows, it’s just bad, really bad, and in no way beautiful.
A piece of good advice is for her to wipe off the poorly applied makeup, and have an expert put a simple design or just have a natural face. It’s better to look ordinary without makeup than apply a type that makes one look unappealing.
Click That Link
So, the face in the picture belongs to an individual who took time to fix this makeup and posted it on a make-up group, tagging it “subtle, soft, and glamorous” – one can only imagine what her “sharp and daring” will look like.
This face is definitely not looking soft and makeup is too pronounced to be termed “subtle.” To make matter worse, she wants people to click the link to her Instagram to see more – see more? No, we’ll pass.
The Golden Face
Maybe if she hadn’t closed her face, then it won’t look so ridiculous. For a moment, one would think the eyes were open when in actual sense they are closed.
Well, if she plans to sleep while at work and not get caught, then this plastering on her face will do the trick. But asides that, this is a total mess – shining so much it appears to be a drawing or perhaps a plan to join a circus.
The Makeup Show
A makeup show on Netflix is said to host a couple of upcoming makeup artists. The individual in the picture is said to be among the participants in the show.
After numerous trials and spending time on the show, one would expect something professional but sadly, nothing changed. Perhaps it’s even worse. The lips are not well blended, and they look nowhere near lovely – a lot to improve and work on.
What a Face
The face is heavily plastered. It’s hard to know what she particularly used on the face. It appears as if she went to a muddy area, and stuck her face within, then tried to smoothen the mud. It all becomes glaring and funnier by checking out the lips. The lips have a thick smear all over.
Next is the eye. The black color ruins whatever part of the face would have been manageable. And as if the black lining isn’t ugly enough, she further added a yellowish color – total disaster.
From Miss Beautiful to Miss Doll
The first frame picture shows how a beautiful face with freckles can be. The natural face has a lovely nose and nice skin tone complemented by reddish lips.
Then boom! The decision to use makeup came up, and that beautiful face turned into a doll. If she stays still for some minutes, many will think they are looking at a mannequin. Starting from the poorly drawn eyebrows, the brows just do not look appealing. Next, the eyelashes, and the awkward color of the lips. Once miss beautiful, now miss doll.
Getting ready and preparing to look glamorous at a wedding can make one go the extra mile to look beautiful. Somewhere lovely dresses, shoes, and on the ceremony, day have their makeup done. Of course, almost no one goes to a wedding with a plain face (although sometimes it’s better).
The example in the picture shows how certain individuals can end up looking like clowns when attempting to look glamorous. The eyebrows are sinking into the lashes, and the foundation seems too much plaster for the face – it needs to be toned a little bit.
She looks like a priestess getting ready for the rituals. The hilarious multi-color design on her face leaves one surprised by what purpose it stands to achieve. Then the blushes and lips are just another baffling things to consider.
This face needs a proper fix up done by a professional and not a try and error kind of thing. This is an example of seeing a design on social media and trying to replicate it. As expected, the outcome is usually not close to the original – a total disaster.
Hold That Head Up, the Makeup Is Too Heavy
She needs to hold that head up, the makeup is quite heavy. Sometimes simplicity could be all that is needed to achieve a lovely face when applying makeup. Heavy shades of foundation can ruin the whole process.
And besides, the color of the foundation is no match for her skin. It’s so bad, on the flip side she has a resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence. And the eyes are beautiful. With a little tone down, she would have had a beautiful and striking result.
The Purple-Yellow Clown
Oh my, me. Everything little detail is wrong and nothing close to beautiful. First of all, whoever taught her this “rubbish” should be behind bars. She’s isn’t just a clown but the entire circus. The brow is literally drawn on the forehead; it’s an eyebrow, not the head-brow.
To make matters worse, the foundation appears muddy. The color used on the eye is a mixture of purple and yellow, all excessively applied. Oh, wait! There is hope; her set of teeth is lovely and well arranged. Asides from that, every other thing is a major “disaster.”
From Beautiful to Something Different
Catch a glimpse of the first frame – beautiful right? Well, that is pretty obvious considering the expertly applied makeup. But the next frame is utterly bad. If it had been makeup on a movie set to describe a “Mummy,” then there would have been no complaints.
But this isn’t a movie set, in fact, it looks as though it’s an entirely different person in the frames. It’s possible she may have watched professional makeup artists over time and felt it’s “simple.” It’s not so simple after all then.
Wrong Purchase, Wrong Purchase
Everything is wrong with the choice of foundation used. Well at least reading the caption, she knows something is wrong unlike the numerous examples above. Some faces are proudly smiling to the camera despite loads of mud and the wrong blend of colors around the eyes. Not this one.
According to the caption, the problem all started from the point of purchase. Then she applied the wrong foundation and had a funny brow drawn on it. To capture the entire disappointing look, the eyelashes are part of the problem.
Slapped With a Mud of Foundation
The problem goes beyond the choice of foundation, but let’s not talk about it first. The shade of the foundation looks pretty shoddy and a bit excessive. If she was in Siberia, then the makeup can keep her warm; very thick foundation.
Next are the brows which were poorly drawn and far from presentable – scattered and feels like a first-timer applied the makeup for her. While some other things can be overlooked, the lashes appear to be too much and have a lot in common with the feathers of a bird.
This Is So Wrong
While we will come back to why she desperately wants to appear orange, the entire face is just funny. This is so wrong and funny at the same time.
The reminds one of the leeches and considering its placement to the distance of her hairline, this is simply a no-no. The eyelashes are something else. The foundation needs to tone down a bit. Are there no more makeup artists to do a lovely job or many have decided to take it up personally, thinking it’s an easy job?
The Shinny Goddess of the Mysterious Makeup Land
How did she come to this? From far or at close range, if she could hold her breath and hold still, she’ll pass as a doll. Whatever was applied is too much and didn’t stop at the face.
It extends down to the neck, chest, and shoulder – it was a full painting session. More like swimming in a pool of mud and towel drying it to look smooth and well blended. Once again give it up for the glittering goddess – can’t just deal, just reminds one of many characters from movies and animations.
She Over Covered, Now it’s Heavy
From the first picture it understandable that she wants to conceal the acne but there are better ways to achieve that than this. Light powder or subtle colored foundation will do the job effectively without looking so artificial. Of course, she neglected simplicity and aimed for the conventional heavy plastering of makeup.
Who would have believed the face in the first frame was carrying the heavy layers of foundation in the next – she’s a strong woman. Overall, she looks quite good and the makeup seems well applied and different from the hilarious ones above which are great examples of makeup gone wrong.
Please Stay Natural
The image of the first frame is a picture of a pretty girl with a lovely and calm face. It’s not wrong to feel the need to have a makeover and add a touch of glam. The only problem is doing it the wrong way.
The forehead is beautifully done, but coming down the cheeks, the error becomes pretty evident. The application of different colors makes it all messy and weird. She most likely didn’t expect this funny outcome. A word of advice – never go overboard getting all painted to look elegant.
Paying $150 for This?
The caption says the “3rd time is a charm, she loved the look.” However, her facial expression doesn’t agree with that. So many questions arise here. Did she not use the mirror to spot the stark contrast between her face and the neck?
The plastering did not even cover the entirety of her face. Some parts looked darker than the front part of the face. This looks more like a turmeric mask that needs to be washed away soon. One can only hope the price for this painting session isn’t $150.
The Celebrity That Did it Wrong
Guess who this is. While guessing, take a long and good look at the face of the woman in the picture. First check the arms, cheek, neck, and lastly the face. Spotted the error? The lighter foundation color is totally far from the color of her skin.
Well, one can argue that this style is the trend in the ’90s. Regardless, be it the style in the ’90s or her mistake, the foundation is just not right. See this and learn from it. Never forget to take a close look at the face and other parts when applying makeup.
The Biggest Brows Ever
The makeup looks nice overall. The foundation seems well used and blends well. All looks good except for the brows. It’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?
The brows are just too thick and big. It certainly affects her look – making it difficult to tell if she’s a teenager or someone in her early 50s. Just one mistake and she ruined everything. Well, practice will make perfect, but before then, she will keep giving us different hilarious pictures of imperfect and ugly eyebrows.
Why Always the Eyebrows
If the eyebrows had a voice, by now there will be a nationwide protest for them to be drawn better. It’s not difficult to deduce the makeup was self-inflicted (because this isn’t a makeup application, it’s a makeup affliction).
The lashes are something else but that’s not even the problem. The poorly drawn wide eyebrows are the big error in this painting job she has chosen to embark on. This is a typical makeup gone the wrong scenario – it just never ends.
Choosing a Wrong Foundation Color
Oh my, it’s always best to choose a foundation color that blends well with the tone of the skin to avoid this kind of discrepancy. No amount of blending can make this look any better.
The difference is just so glaring. Of course, seeing the face alone, one wouldn’t detect a thing until other parts are visible. This brings to mind people who wear shirt and tie with shorts and without shoes for a zoom meeting – since no one sees beyond the chest level.
Shocking, Funny, and Ridiculous
The first frame is beautiful and lovely. A gentle face with pretty features. All was fine until she chose to go for a makeover. The eyelashes are something, something really.
The beautiful face on the left just transformed into something else. Truthfully, the natural face is way better than the painted one a million miles apart. Sometimes staying natural is good, and applying light powder could do the trick.
Speechless; That’s How You Make Me Feel
Did the caption below say “classic gold and brown?” First, of, there is nothing classic about this ridiculous frostbite-looking makeup. Even the inside of her ear is well plastered with the colors and thick layers.
Although the eyeliner is well blended, her entire face is shiny – reflecting light and glittering like precious metals. “Go easy” should be the caption next time. The foundation could have been reduced among many other things.
The layers of plastering, lashes, and eyebrows will be discussed later. Right now, the caption of the image needs to be assessed. The question is how on earth could she be so brave to tag the picture “natural.”
Either she doesn’t know the meaning of natural, or she didn’t check her face after it was touched. Of all the words to use, natural is nothing close to being appropriate. The layers of makeup are clearly too much and excessive – an epitome of “artificial.”
For Someone on a Makeup Show
For someone on a makeup show, this is nothing close to being professional. The foundation plaster on the face is enough to serve two or three persons for another makeup session. The color blend is also poor and runs over the lips again.
Arch! There isn’t even a good mixture of colors. Did the caption on the image say “glow-up?” This is more of a glow down than a glow up. Whoever did this needs to improve, or hire the service of an expert that does a good job.
The Face of Foundation
If any cosmetics companies are in search of an individual to run an advert on foundation products, then they found one. The WWE lady obviously has too much foundation on her face. The foundation was so thick it matches her blonde hair.
And this obviously wasn’t applied in small quantity – she seems to be sweating it out. If not viewed closely, one might think she rubbed her face in a bowl of curry. It’s high time people start to watch the quantity of foundation, shape, the size of eyebrows, and other features of make-up to avoid looking like clowns.
Even Important Figures Are Victims
Whoever had this done on her face deserves to sacked and put out of practice. Makeup is to make the face look beautiful. And considering this is an important figure, it should even add elegance. Looking again, first, the color picked doesn’t match well with her skin, then it was applied excessively till she turned something close to a clown.
Oh my, this is actually scary. If this was makeup for a horror movie, then the artist would be paid extra for getting it just right!
The Celebrity Cases
In the early days of their career, many celebrities have made horrible makeup errors. While they may have forgotten these times and are now using experts for their makeup sessions, the internet kept some proof.
The image shows, Nicki Minaj, Lindsey Lohan, J-Lo, and some others who carried funny makeup on their faces. Maybe they did their makeup or hired an amateur. Some had heavy makeup, some have the wrong color, poorly drawn eyebrows, wrong lip color, and other flaws.
Wrong Foundation Color
At first glance, it seems nothing is wrong. However, taking a close look at the faces, then the flaw becomes obvious – the wrong foundation! The decision to use a yellow foundation is a simply horrific color match.
The better option would have been to use darker shades instead of the overly bright types. On the flip side, the foundation may not have been so bright but the process of taking pictures and lighting may have added effect a bit. Taking the possible effect of photography away, then the makeup isn’t still right.
Speechless – Too Much of Everything
Imagine waking up to see this face. One will probably run a couple of miles before stopping, thinking it’s an alien invasion. First, the lashes were looking seriously angry, and coupled with the off-territory brows, this picture brings to mind flamingo birds.
Just too much of everything – the lashes, the eyebrows, and the foundation – all heavy, excessive and wrongly applied. It feels more like trying out a craft after seeing a complex tutorial for the first time.
