In the winter most of us suffer from pale skin, chapped lips and tired eyes and a bit of mascara can breathe some life into a woman"s face but some celebrities have been spotted going too far with the eye makeup.
AOL celebrity blogger Steve Cook has named and shamed glamour model Jodie Marsh and Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle as two celebrities who have slapped on more than enough mascara.
Katie Price, he writes, has reverted back to applying her makeup in the style of her Jordon days.
"Applying spiders to her eyelids and caking more black around the eyes than a panda is just the start of Katie"s (very long) beauty routine," he writes.
Mr Leng also notes Kelly Osborne, Beth Ditto and Boy George as celebs who have been less than successful with their colourful eye shadows.
But one celeb who does know her makeup is X-Factor"s Cheryl Cole, and she suggests the more minimal approach of adding a little glitter to the eyes for the festive parties.
