Beauty - Things I Suck At.

What a beautiful Saturday for most of the UK.  I took the kiddiewinkles to the beach for the day and let them run wild, whilst I caught up on my favourite blog reading - though myself have lost my mojo  and have been suffering from major bloggers block  So tonight's post is a tag, hope you don't mind!? 

Beauty Things I Suck At!  
It is really non specific but here are a few of my beauty woes:

I am absolutely terrible at applying this.  My hands seem to shake a lot when I try to do it and my eyes blink uncontrollably, I swear it takes me forever to get it right.  I find it the most frustrating thing about  make up application.

Washing my Make up Brushes
I have to say, you really would be disgusted with me over the length of time I take to wash my brushes.  It is always a job I 'put off for another day'.  I really should take more pride over this.

Fake tanning
I always end up with nasty orange patches on my elbows, they are so ghastly.  How do I get rid of these - I do exfoliate and moisturise prior to the task?

I once shaved half of my right eyebrow off with an electric facial hair trimmer. It has never looked the same since and I have to take a lot of time adjusting it to make it look even.  It is a daily chore of mine.

Night Cream
I have so many night cream products but never remember to apply them, complete laziness on my part -I wonder why I have dry skin in the mornings and resemble a lot older looking woman (nice swerve).

Eye Shadow
I like to think that I am ok at this actually however, there is always one eye that looks far better than the other - also blow drying my hair, my left side always looks 10 times better than the right.

Well there you have it.  What are your beauty frustrations?

I am still lacking in inspiration so if you have any requests please let me know.

  1. Love this idea for a post! May just have to do a tag and do it myself for something fun :)

  2. Haha, washing brushes? Who does that haha, yea I am pretty terrible with that one too!

  3. I love these kind of posts! I agree with the eyeshadow one eye ALWAYS looks better!! So annoying.


  4. Love this post! I suck at doing eyebrows too and using products I have - I always forget I have them and then vow to use them, and then forget again haha! X

  5. I love tags! I am also terrible at eyeliner and eyeshadow. It just never seems to look right to me- although we are our own worst critics.

  6. I am terrible at applying fake lashes, I can't do it!

    I am an eyeshadow fiend, but I too usually end up with one eye looking better than the other. I just ignore it, lol :)

    And yes, I am clueless when it comes to my eyebrows :(

  7. I suck at eyeliner so so much. My wings never look the same. It literally takes me about 15 minutes just to make the wings right.

  8. I also suck at eyeliner and i won't dare go near fake tan for my fear of coming out bright orange and patchy.

  9. This is a great post idea! I probably suck at eyeshadows the most. My eyes either come out looking really flat o uneven.

  10. Great post! As for ideas, I've only been following your blog for a few months so I don't know all the posts you've done before, but how about a lipstick collection or something like that?

  11. I think I'm terrible at eye-shadow, I can never really get it blended nicely.

  16. I've just done a post like this :)
    With the fake tan I moisturise before and after application. Still goes orange sometimes but nevermind!

  17. I'm so bad at washing my brushes! Glad to know it's not just me xx

  18. Oh, eyeliner is one of my beauty frustrations definitely!


  19. I struggle to apply eyeliner as well, If only someone would invent eye liner for dummies!!

  20. I did one of these posts a few months ago. I'm really bad at eyeliner and washing my make up brushes too. I know it's bad but...ooops!
