10 Beauty Things I Suck At.


Curling my hair. Straighteners or curlers I just can't do it. It just looks like one big half kinky, half straight mess. 

Hairstyles. It's not just curly hair that I fail at, messy buns, plaits, anything other than straight or a pony tail is too hard for me.

Plucking my eyebrows. This is more just laziness, other than a small amount of necessary maintenance they pretty much get left until Im force to have them waxed.

Fake Tan. Being very pale means fake tan can be a bit of a disaster, and I tend to stay away. Even some gradual tanners can look streaky on me if Im not careful!

Washing my brushes. Something Im sure most girls struggle with. It just takes so long!

Eyeliner. I've given up trying on this one, Im never going to be able to rock a winged liner look. 

Contouring. I can't be the only person who can't get to grips with contouring, or maybe I just have non existent cheekbones that will never appear even with the help of make up. 

- False Eyelashes. Just no, it's never happening.

Skincare. Beauty bloggers will hate me for this one, but I suck at skincare. I use face wipes to take off my make up, and I don't even know the purpose of toner! Maybe one day when Im a real adult with a real job I'll be able afford a proper skin care regime. 

Haircuts. Im poor and therefore can't afford a haircut so it just keeps growing and growing. 

These are the reasons why I will never be a beauty blogger! Let me know if you also suck at any of these beauty things, or maybe you're amazing at one of them and have some tips you can send my way!

    1. My friends can all do it and do it on my hair for me, but I just can't do it. It goes all kinky and just terrible! Glad someone else feels my pain!

  3. I love this and agree to every single one. False eyelashes and fake tan are way more effort than they are worth and curling with straighteners is not possible and anyone who says it is is lying.

    1. False eyelashes are just too much effort, I'll stick to mascara thanks! Im so pale that fake tan just looks stupid anyway, and I can't even curl with curlers, I just give up trying.

  4. Haha I am the same with a lot of these! Plucking my eyebrows especially! The only time I seem to notice they need doing is right before I go out, when I can't afford to have red lumpy eyebrows! Although I have recently discovered numbing them with ice first, which has been a revelation! I certainly won't be beauty blogging anytime soon either! Great post! x

    1. I have really light blonde eyebrows so you can't really see them anyway so my laziness always wins! That sounds like a good idea though, might have to try that out. I'll never be a beauty blogger, I can't afford all the products anyway! Thank you :)

    1. I don't see the big deal, it takes my make up off, and then I wash my face with a cleanser, so whats the big issue?! I've worn them once and they felt so heavy and took so long to get on!

  7. I think I have just about given up on eyeliner too. I have tried all different types and brands and I have come to the conclusion it is just me...I suck at apply eyeliner.

    1. I think it's something that requires a lot of practice, and I just can't be bothered with that so I just don't bother using it.
