Epic makeup FAIL....

I couldn't help but post this, because I've been giggling for about 10 minutes about this.

The eternal self promoter that is Napoleon Perdis is currently in New York for Fashion Week.  Follow him on Twitter (@napoleonperdis) and you'll find he has an assistant (winner of his reality contest maybe??) taking pic after pic of the models backstage that he is making up.

One tweet that caught my eye was of him working on Shenae Grimes from 90210 - rather proud he was!  Gotta love a celebrity endorsement!!

So you can imagine my amusement when I check out one of my favourite blogs ( to find this little gem, under the title 'Epic Makeup Fail':

Oh no!  She's been Napoleoned!!  Those cheeks... those lips... those eyes... it's just BAD.

Moral of the story is - if you Tweet it, make sure it's good!!

  1. How the HELL is this person such a Famous makeup artist when SO MANY ppl are always commenting on his BAD technique...seriously it's awful. How did he get to where he is!?!

  2. It boggles my mind. Seriously. If that was any other artist their career would be over. Yet he'll survive to bronze the world for another day...

  3. A tad heavy handed he was! total epic fail!

  4. He's got a PR Dream time, money can buy u anything, hes created a brand and we buy it, more fool us

  5. Poor girl! Her make-up really is dialed up in every area, isn't it? Napoleon Perdis is a terrific make-up artist, but you're right -- this is an epic fail.
