BEAUTY THINGS I SUCK AT

8 April 2015


I don't know about you, but I am not good at everything when it comes to make up. Sure I would love to be perfect at it all, but then I would learn any new ways of doing it. So below are my tell tales of the beauty things I do suck at. 

1. Eyeliner, I think quite a few girls have a love/hate relationship with this product. It doesn't matter if its pencil, gel or liquid it is one of those things you have to duplicate on the other eye and it could become a hack job - easily! I have found that gel eyeliner works easiest for me as I have more control over the brush, and a top tip is also to use sellotape as a guide! Without that tape though, my eyeliner does not stand a chance for looking the same!

2. Nails, eugh. I absolutely hate painting my nails. It is boring! It is messy! And it is smelly!!!! So dramatic I know, but I seriously can't stand it, and I don't want to pay out to have my nails done by someone else either so I do simply leave them. I also have to have them cut short too. I'm not a girl with pretty nails.

3. Blusher. I love blusher but I actually do a shoddy over the top look if I'm not careful. I pack too much on the brush and just dive straight in there with an end result - a clown. I tend to stick to the bronzer until I've mastered being careful with blusher!

4. Lipstick, I'm terrible at apply bright lipstick, every other shade is fine! But if it is bright, bright pink, red... whatever I have a real melt down. I definitely have to use a lipliner otherwise I've got the product feathering everywhere.

What beauty things do you suck at?

  2. Eyeliner and mascara are two of the really hard ones for me. It's so easy to get a bit in the wrong place and mess up the eyeshadow. I do like the tape methods I've seen in some makeup tutorials on YouTube. I'm always amazed at how talented some beauty bloggers are with their makeup. I like the look of lipliner. Some lipsticks are easier to use than others. I think the lip tars take more skill.

  3. I love this blog post! So honest! :)
    I suck at anything to do with eyes... eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara. If I somehow manage to do any okay job, I always end up smudging it by rubbing my eyes :( haha xx

  4. I couldn't agree more with the nail one! I hate painting my nails but I feel so bare without some polish so its a very gruelling process!! I definitely suck at contour, I just end up with muddy lines all over my face no matter how much I blend! Definitely something I avoid now! x

    1. Try the Clinique contour stick, it's saved my face from looking muddy! :) x

  5. I am exactly like you concerning nail polish!! It's so annoying when one hand is done perfectly (or as close as it's going to get to perfect) but then the other hand looks as if I did it with my eyes shut hahahah x)

    With eyeliner, I used to be like that, but whenever it was time to remove my makeup, I would practice my eyeliner. Practice makes perfect. ;)

    There's a trick I use whenever I put on too much blush (which is every day lol), which is dusting your face powder on your cheeks! It will tone down the shade :)

    Great post! :)

  7. I'm so big on posts where people are honest on what they're not good at - so refreshing!

    I'd have to agree with you on all 4 of these - I'm absolutely RUBBISH at applying eyeliner, painting my nails, applying blusher and lipstick (omg so bad at lipstick - probably why I steer right away from anything but natural colours) Great post and posts, beauty! Gained a new follower :-)
