    Take a look at yourself in the mirror

    Can we say in Russian

    Посмотри на себя в зеркало!

    First look at your flaws, failings, deficiencies before criticizing someone else.

    Хочу вам рассказать о девочке Оле, которая вдруг увидела себя со стороны. Увидела так, как можно увидеть не себя, а совсем другую девочку -скажем, сестру или подругу. Таким образом, она довольно долго наблюдала
    самое себя, и это помогло ей избавиться от недостатков, которых она раньше в себе не замечала.

    I think we can say this.

    One more variant: ахал бы дядя на себя глядя.

    "Чья бы корова мычала, твоя бы молчала" is a rude rhymed saying. It means something like, "shut up, you have no moral right to tell this in the given situation. First look at your flaws, failings, deficiencies before criticizing someone else.

    As well you can remember this:
    "Вынь прежде бревно из твоего глаза и тогда увидишь, как вынуть сучок из глаза брата твоего”
    (Евангелие от Матфея, 7:4–5).
    Кр. -- сестр. тал.
