Heavily pencilled eyebrows voted worst make-up faux pas

Researchers who polled 2,000 women found dense, false-looking dark brows were the ultimate make-up no-no, The Sun reported.

Sporting a tide-mark of foundation around the jaw line where make-up hasn't been blended in properly was declared as the second blooper.

In third place were cosmetically-enhanced lips, resulting in a trout pout.

Over-plucked eyebrows leaving little or no hair came fourth and dark lip liner combined with a lighter shade of lipstick.

"It's really interesting that brow blunders make up three of the top ten, whether brows are too big, too light or too dark. With this in mind it's no surprise that sales of brow kits and brow pencils are soaring in our stores," Sara Wolverson of Superdrug, which commissioned the study, said.

Other mistakes in the list were fake beauty spots, clumpy mascara and matted hair extensions.

Black roots with fair hair, yellow teeth and sunburn also made it in the top 25.

The study also found 85 per cent of women follow the mantra that 'less is more' when it comes to applying make-up.
