Beauty Things I Suck At.

20 Feb 2014

I guess it's time to let you into a secret. I'm rubbish when it comes to beauty and I thought I was alone with these problems before I saw others do a similar post so here's my version of this post to maybe put you at ease if you suffer with any of these beauty related problems!

Since starting this blog, I've said I don't wear eyeliner because I have slightly hooded lids and it covers my whole eye but that's only half the truth as I'm just rubbish. I keep trying and trying to get he technique right and each time I'm edging ever so slightly closer to feeling I actually can start wearing it out so fingers crossed

Right Hand Nail Painting.
Yes, I'm sure nearly everyone has the problem of painting with the hand they don't normally use which, for me, is my left. It always takes me a few times to get my right hand perfect!

Getting Haircuts.
I had a haircut last month and that was the first hair cut in 6 months which is pretty bad seeing as you're supposed to have one every 6-10 weeks. I think it's mainly because it makes my really nervous; what if the hairdresser gets it wrong and cut of more than I want or do the wrong thing?I also didn't feel I needed to as I don't straighten my hair so I don't have many split ends but it got to the point my hair was just a little too long for me to control so mum forced me to have a haircut! Since having my haircut last month I definitely realise how much I should have haircuts more regularly!

Cleaning My Make Up Brushes.
This seems to be something that everyone seems to suck at and I'm no exception. I was actually in denial until the other day when I was looking at my brushes and then I finally admitted it to myself. With this, it's aminly remembering because I'll remember when it's too late to do it before I next use my brushes I don't have tim to let them dry. I don't have much of an excuse not to clean them regularly as I've got my no7 brush cleaner and it dries in a couple of minutes. I put it down to laziness and forgetfulness!

Fake Tan.
Fake tanning is definitely not in my genes which probably doesn't come to a shock because I'm so pale. I hardly ever fake tan but when I do, it doesn't always turn out how I want it to even when I exfoliate, moisturise etc just how you're told to! This is more of an annoyance that I can't get it right even when I do do it right!

Maybe from this, you might realise you're not alone with the beauty things you suck at because it probably will turn out that I suck at the beauty deal more than you!

What are some beauty things you suck at? Or do you feel my pain toward some of things listed above?

Hope you're ok,


  1. I'm always so nervous too when I get my hair cut! And somehow it always ends up too short for my liking, which is probably why I've been shying away from getting my hair cut for a year now...

    Yet Another Makeup Blog.

    1. That's what I did- I didn't have a haircut for a year once and then when I did I was so relieved that my hair was looking healthier than before especially with my hair so hopefull I'll stick to getting my hair cut more often!

  3. I have hooded eyes and it's horrid! I literally cannot do anything with my eye makeup :-(

  4. I suck at eyeliner too, and just painting my nails in general! I wait ages for them to dry and still manage to smudge them!x
