12 Celebrity Powder Mishaps

Excuse me, Melissa Joan Hart? I know you’re on your way into the premiere of “Frozen” but I really feel like someone should tell you this. You have something on your face. Specifically your forehead.

Probably the latter, most likely, though it’s hard to understand how any self-respecting makeup artist could let Melissa leave the house without blending in her makeup, like, at all.

More specifically, powder. But it’s a delicate balance. Too much and your favorite celeb may look like a clown, too little and they’re shinier than an oil slick. Click through to see some very unfortunate celebrity powder mishaps.

Shopping Guide: 11 Cute Easter Dresses That Won’t Get You Thrown Out Of Church

I never know how to dress for Easter Sunday. Some years, I am dragged to a formal church service, but other times, I’m just kicking it at home with family, elbowing my nieces in the face so they don’t get to my Cadbury eggs.

My go-to Easter get-up — thrown together at the last minute, natch — is usually a floral or pastel frock with a cream-colored cardigan, thick, warm stockings, and flats.
