One false move with your eyebrows and you could be committing one of three top 10 beauty sins, according to a new poll by the UK’s Superdrug.

The survey, which polled 2000 women on beauty blunders, ranked heavily pencilled eyebrows as the number one faux pas, with over-plucked brows coming in fourth. Monobrow was seventh on the list.

Most of the highest ranking beauty sins were related to overly fake looks: foundation marks at the chin (number two), overly plumped lips (number three) and dark lip liner with pale lipstick (number five).

The poll revealed 25 beauty no-nos in all, including yellow teeth, orange palms (from fake tan), hairy legs, bad hair extensions and even pierced fingernails.
