Sometimes you just stumble into a great look. With these canines, curiosity — and perhaps the desire to eat anything they come across — resulted in some … interesting new makeovers. As you’ll see, while a dog can avoid culpability after hoovering the food off your plate, or tearing up your best socks, there’s no way a dog can eat lipstick without getting caught red-handed (and red-lipped, of course). Here are some of the best pictures of dogs wearing lipstick, on their faces, their paws and … well, it can get to be kind of a mess.
Sometimes it pays to be bad. It says it all there on the paper. Not only was this dog trying to look good — it also seems to have plotted a night out on the town to flaunt its new look! Why else would it have grabbed three whole dollars from mom’s purse after she fell asleep? Of course chewing up the money made it unfortunately unusable, so this pup found itself all dolled up with nowhere to go, but sometimes getting ready is the best part. From the looks of it, this pooch even gave a makeover to its longtime frenemy, the couch.
Let’s say you’re walking down a dark alley alone at night and you bump into this little pooch. You’d probably run the other way, right? Taking the term “fierce” to all new levels, this pup upped its intimidation game tenfold by giving itself a zombie-like makeover. Sure, we wouldn’t know how such a sweet looking little guy could overpower its previous victim, but we would not at all be willing to find out.
“What did you do, Chloe?” this dog’s owner asks, walking in on the Frenchie as it chews up the last bits of lipstick in its mouth. We love the way this pup is holding the lipstick when it’s walked in on, perfectly between the paws below its mouth as if it were properly applying a new hot-pink shade. Of course, the smudges on Chloe’s paws and the rash of pink on her underbelly mean that this wasn’t the totally coordinated effort it initially appeared to be. “You’re a bad girl,” the dog’s owner says, but clearly Chloe feels no remorse. “You’re right I’m a bad girl,” she seems to say with her steely eyes.
We appreciate the effort, but some criticism is necessary here. I mean, didn’t everybody already dress up as “Dark Knight” Joker, like, a decade ago? Not a very original idea, dog. Get your act together and think of a more contemporary Halloween costume, like, uh, that Ed Hardy-looking Joker from this year. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
Awwww. The application of lipstick here is on the subtler side, looking more like the makeup was thoughtfully applied, and there’s a good reason why. Redditor Ezraelda posted this picture with the caption “My girlfriend forgot she was wearing lipstick before kissing our puppy,” meaning this cute pup didn’t actually consume tons of makeup like the other dogs on this list. Instead, just a slight smudge from what was probably a well-deserved smooch. And look at those adorable eyes. We would probably give that dog a kiss too.
The shame in this dog’s eyes is almost unbearable. It knows what it did was wrong. It knows the jig is up. And it seems that all she wants to do is recoil and wallow in her shame while her mom scolds her for her misdeeds. “I know what I did and I just want to be alone,” her body language seems to say. From the sounds of the baby in the background, it’s very possible that this dog owner might have to have the same conversation with a tiny human down the road.
Everything about this dog screams, “I don’t care! I know I look great.” The colors are super coordinated and the facial expression is runway ready. All this dog needs is the perfect outfit and Vogue for dogs (Dogue?) won’t be too far away.
