Beauty Things I Suck at!

Hello everyone! I don't do many chatty blogposts like this one but I've seen videos and other posts like this and thought it would be quite fun. Because there is nothing I love more than revealing how useless I am. At everything. On with the post!

1. Washing my brushes. How is this not on anyone's list? Despite the fact I am repulsed when I see other people using foundation clogged brushes and despite the fact that I love the feeling of freshly washed brushes and despite the fact that I know my makeup goes on better when they're clean I still put off doing it. What is wrong with me?

2. Keeping my nails painted. I'll do it once and really like how they look but then they chip after less than a day and I can't resist picking it all off. Then I won't do it again for weeks because I get so pissed off at how quickly they chip. Same goes for false nails, once one comes off they're all gone and I can't be bothered to stick them on again. I'm destined to have hideous hands.

3. Doing things with my hair. I have my hair down every single day in the exact same style. I go through phases of having it a bit more curly or adopting a different way of using the straighteners to curl it but other than that it's exactly the same. Your milkmaid braid tutorials are completely lost on me. 

4. Listening to hair care advice. I complain about my damaged hair constantly but no amount of telling me to stop washing it everyday or to stop using so much heat on it will have an impact. I know it's sage advice and it would probably work but my second day hair is like most people's fifth day hair and my natural hair is inexplicable. I have to wash it everyday (if I'm going to be seen by the general public) and I have to use heat on it, there are no other options!! 

5. Concealing. Like... I do it... but I don't think I have ever successfully concealed a spot. It conceals around the spot but the redness always shows through. What's that all about. 

6. Plucking my eyebrows. They can pretty much just go die for all I care. 

7. I can't do the same makeup twice.  To be fair it probably looks the same to everyone else but if I think 'oh yeah I liked my makeup yesterday I'm gonna do the same today' it will fail miserably. Oh! and doing my makeup for a special occasion (for all those special occasions I have). If I really want my makeup to be nice I'll try too hard and have a disaster. Fact. 

The moral of this post is that I'm shit at most things. Good then. 
Thanks for stopping by! Lots of love, Annie xx

  1. Hahaha this was hilarious! I'm in the same boat as you with a lot of these things, especially not washing my brushes!! So important but soooo not what I want to be doing.
