Well at least we think that's what happened to Claudia Winkleman ahead of last night's GQ Awards.
The Strictly Come Dancing host suffered not one but TWO beauty malfunctions as she hit the red carpet at the fit-men-packed award ceremony last night.
Posing in a bang-on-trend navy jumpsuit alongside newsreader Kirsty Young, Clauds overdid her eye make-up just a tad - modelling the panda eye look as she did her best pout for the camera.

The star, who had just arrived at the bash, looked either like she'd been crying for hours or smeared her mascara really badly down her face as she sported more of an end of an end-of-evening look than a beginning.
And the 41-year-old coupled her eye shadow #FAIL with a fake tan error too, turning up in a far-from-even bronzed look.
The hilarious star managed to dip her hand in a darker shade of tan than the rest of her arm - the perils of fake bake eh?
Things didn't get much better for the mum-of-three as she stumbled out of the event hours later looking even more bedraggled.
Well at least she got a goody bag, hey?
