Beauty Things I Suck At
I recently came across this post from Keeping it Karen’s blog and loved the idea! I thought it was really interesting to see and have since read many other, similar posts of beauty things bloggers suck at. Despite calling myself a ‘beauty blogger’ there are sooo many things I really suck at. Honestly, I’m not sure I can even class myself as a beauty blogger haha but I absolutely love all things makeup and have a lot of fun doing it.
Here are the main beauty things I suck at:
I’ve been really trying to get better at these lately but I just cannot get the hang of them! It takes me so long to try and put one lash on and then it’s usually wonky, or droopy or too high up on my lash line. Like everyone says I try to use tweezers to place them on but actually find it easier to apply and manoeuvre them with my fingers. I shall continue to persevere with the lashes but I don’t think it’s something I’ll ever be a pro at!
Daily Skincare Routine
You’d think as someone who is so self-conscious of their skin they’d make every effort to ensure they have a religious daily skincare routine. Nope. I’d love to be one of those girls who do a skincare routine morning and night without fail but I just end up either forgetting or being too tired to bother. I do wash my face every single day and I moisturise a lot but I don’t have a solid skincare routine, I wouldn’t even know where to start. I really want to try and make more of an effort with this though so my skin is all clear and glowy and flawless for my wedding next year!
Painting my Nails
No matter how many times I do it, or how many times I watch my nail technician do it I cannot paint my own nails neatly. It goes everywhere! All over my hands and fingers and ends up looking like a 5-year-old or my cat painted them. You wouldn’t think it’d be so hard to just put a bit of colour on your nails. I hardly ever paint my own nails anymore and if I do I usually just pick it all off in a day or two anyway.
My eyebrows suck. I can admit it. No one else has ever said my eyebrows are bad but I know everyone is just being kind. They’re terrible haha. I don’t know how I get them so wrong but it seems every shade is too dark for me so I just have these dark bricks across my forehead. Thankfully I have a fringe which covers them most the time.
Honestly styling my hair just bores me so most of the time I don’t do it. I’m lucky in that my hair is naturally wavy so a lot of time I can get away with not doing anything other than straightening my fringe. Normally in the mornings when I’m getting ready for work I’ll spend all my time doing my makeup and then leave about 5 minutes to do something with my hair so I’ll finger brush it, fluff it up a little and call it a day. If I have the time I’ll straighten all of my hair. I’d love to be able to curl it and make it look all lovely and like I just stepped out of a salon but it’s just too much effort.
