Beauty | Things I'm Crap At

So, over the last year I've shared a lot on this blog - mainly it's been hauls, product reviews, sometimes even weekly life updates (guffaw those lasted long, eh?)

There's a few small points I don't tend to cover on the blog, you know why?  'Cos I'm shit at them!

Things I'm Crap At : BEAUTY blog

Eyeliner - OK, let's start with the obvious one.  I know my blog name may lead you believe my wings are on fleek every day but seriously, no!  Now, I'm not saying this is one I'm TERRIBLE at.  I don't avoid eyeliner, very much the opposite.  I've come to terms with the fact I'm shit at eyeliner and I've kinda embraced it.  Plus I look fucking terrible without it.  God loves a tryer, eh?

Eyeshadow - Yup, I'm a beauty blogger that can't eyeshadow!  Is there a shadow school I should be attending?  Where do folk learn to blend eyeshadows like Instagram shows us anyway?

Mani / Pedi's - I'm a naturally messy soul, add a bottle of nail polish and jeez you may as well just write the whole day off. Maybe my hands just weren't built for such things.  9 out of 10 times when I paint my nails I ruin them within 20 minutes and have to redo the process all over again. 

Tanning -  Remember this post?  My first and only time ever self-tanning.  How do folk do that every week?  How do you reach those bits on your back?  Are all your bedsheets brown?  I don't get it. 
Recently I got a spray tan for going on holiday and it was just TERRIBLE.  It's not the most pleasant experience, is it?!  It all started off so well: paper pants, nose plugs and hairnet donned before being painted a more mahogany shade of brown than I was expecting.  And don't even get me started on the underboob stain I was left with.  Srly gal pals, how do you do these thing?

Hair Stylin' - I have 2, maybe 3 hairstyles: up, down or curls.  Does everyone else get out of bed two hours before work to perfect the messy bun look or what?

Skincare - Again, maybe I'm just forever a lazy girl but where do you find the time to do a full skincare routine 14 times a week?  I love a good cleanser - actually that's an understatement.  My cleanser collection and I are baes.  I have SO many that I love.  Possibly one cleanser for every occasion:  Lazy days, deep cleanse, acne cleanse, gels, creams, oils, balms - Ohh yes, I have them all but I rarely do the whole cleanse, tone, moisture palaver, I especially don't manage to do it twice a day. 

Washing my brushes - I lost a good hour of my life this past weekend cleaning my brush collection 'cos I'd just kept using fresh ones instead of cleaning the others. 

Go on, confess.....I won't judge you.  What are you crap at?

  1. I LOVE this post! I'm totally shit at false eyelashes. I just can't do them. Either as a whole lash or cut into threes I'm all fingers and thumbs trying to do it. 80% of all the lashes I've ever bought have ended up mangled in the bin 5 minutes later. And eyeliner, I know it can sense fear. Crap at it, so I avoid. xx

    1. Ahhhhh see lashes is one I'm actually getting there with, totally depends on the lashes though. I can't do individual ones at all, never tried cutting them into 3 but that could be handy. The preglued eylure ones are decent and usually in the £store so worth a wear & throw away. I'v some decent Illamasqua ones that the girls cut to size for me that are my go to :)
      I feel completely stupid with big thick lashes though, props to those gals that can pull them off x

  2. I LOVE THIS! And I'm so glad you're back!!!!
    I'm shit at eyeliner but pretty good at eyeshadow so can get away without the liner. Laughed out loud at the 'up, down and curls' < That's me hahaha.
