9 Truly Tragic Choices in Celebrity Hair and Makeup!

Published on March 13, 2014. Updated April 5, 2017

We look up to celebrities for tips on hair and makeup. They seem to have the best resources, products and professionals to lean on. Unfortunately, all the help in the world can’t prevent some stars from making really bad choices. Here are 9 truly tragic choices when it comes to celebrity hair and makeup!

9. Kesha

Kesha and Lady Gaga have at least one thing in common – they both like the shock factor when it comes to makeup, hair and clothing. Kesha looks really nice when she goes for a more natural look; however, she is known more for her painting her lips dark, wearing excessive amounts of eye makeup and doing god-knows-what to her hair and eyebrows.

8. Courtney Love

Courtney Love would benefit from trying a more natural look with less lipstick, eye makeup and foundation. The excessive use of red lipstick is not flattering and the hairstyle she is sporting looks a bit too much like a mullet. Very few women look good with their hair bleached white and Love is definitely not one of them.

7. Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson will sometimes show up at events looking really nice; however, at the ABC TCA Party Summer event in 2012, she made a few big mistakes with her hair and makeup. For one, the hairstyle is totally unflattering. It looks like no thought or care went into it and, as for her makeup, she definitely overdid it with the eye shadow.

6. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga loves to shock people with her outrageous makeup and clothing, but this particular look makes her look a bit too much like a corpse. She  used too much foundation with too much blush and she has lined her eyes with a color that is strikingly similar to the blush. The effect is totally unflattering, to say the least.

5. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus actually looks quite good with short hair because it brings out her small facial features. This hairstyle, however, totally hides that. It looks like she was going for a Brigitte Bardot look, but it just doesn’t work on her. As for the cat eye makeup, it doesn’t suit her either. Most people look better with less makeup and the “Hannah Montana” star is no exception.

4. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera is naturally beautiful. She could literally leave the house with just lip-gloss on and still stun people with her beauty. Unfortunately, she chooses to hide her face under layers of foundation, heavy lipstick, heavy eye liner and ridiculously bleached hair, which doesn’t suit her – at all.

3. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan used to be the girl next door. She had a beautiful fresh face that she didn’t bury with makeup. Fast-forward several years and the former “it girl” seems to have lost her way. Unfortunately, Lilo is a far cry from the beauty she once was.

2. Mischa Barton

When Mischa Barton was starring on “The O.C,” she seemed to know how to use makeup without making it look like she was wearing any, but that isn’t the case anymore. Barton will show up at events wearing an unflattering amount of eye makeup, bright red lips and long, greasy locks. Not a cute look, to say the least.

1. Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen was adorable on “Gossip Girl.” She wore a minimal amount of makeup and she looked flawless. But times have changed and so has Taylor’s style. She is now the lead singer of a band called “The Pretty Reckless” and she has totally changed her look. She wears an excessive amount of eye makeup, foundation and nude lipstick, which makes her look more like a zombie than a respected actress.
