First up is white hair mascara. This was the 90's equivalent of hair chalk and I thought it was amazing. It came in all sorts of colours: pink, purple, red, blue.. and white. Now for some reason I thought it was a brilliant idea to wear white hair mascara - until my mum once panicked and thought a bird had pooed in my hair.
My second disastrous beauty product that I thought was oh-so-cool as a 12 year old is glitter mascara. Why, oh why? In my mind I looked amazing but in reality I just looked ridiculous. On top of that, I wondered why I kept seeing random dots in front of me eyes... it was the pieces of glitter that I could see out of the corner of my eye.
Staying on the topic of mascara, I also went through a phase of wearing blue mascara. Yes, you read that correctly - blue mascara! I would actually wear this blue mascara to school and it wasn't until I received a copy of my school photo when I realised how blimin' awful I looked! Cara might be able to get away with it, but not us mere mortals I'm afraid.
The last item I would like to mention in my teenage beauty disasters post is an item which I honestly cannot believe it still being sold. The spawn of Satan that is Sun-In Spray. I sprayed this on my hair to within an inch of it's life, so much so that my hair snapped off about 1cm from the root and I had a tuft of hair sticking up all along my parting. How bloody horrendous!
So there you have it, my teenage beauty disasters. Did you have any disasters as a teenager? I'd love to know in the comments below.
