Beauty Things I Suck At Tag


I decided to swipe this tag from YouTube and move it to the blogosphere. I know that beauty girls always seem to know exactly what they're doing, but that is not always the case. So I decided to throw my voice into the ring and talk about my imperfections.

First thing I suck at? Skincare. I've tried so so many things and none of it has worked yet. I. Currently trying Murad and it might work, but that will be an upcoming blog post.

I also really suck at self tanner. I always turn orange, or streaky, or both. It doesn't matter what I do, how much I exfoliate, or how carefully I apply it, it just doesn't work for me. I keep trying, because I want it too. Next on my list to try is St. Tropez. I've been putting it off because I just think this might be a more expensive tanning mistake.

I'm awful at liquid liner. I never wear it because no matter how I try to apply it I just can't get it right. I always apply it super thickly, or not straight, or its gloopy. Whatever I just can't get it.

Plucking my eyebrows. I always have to watch Jim Chapman videos while I pluck. It's kinda because he's hilarious. I'm kinda a hardcore wuss, so I need a distraction, and I always put it off way to long.

I'm really bad at tight lining. I freak out and then picture myself stabbing my eye out, and then I chicken out. Every damn time. Same thing with false lashes. So I just don't wear them.

While I'm talking about my eyes, I'm super bad at blending my shadows. I'm lazy. That's my only excuse.

I hate using powders to set my makeup. I've been using a setting spray. I'd like to use a powder but no matter how little I use, I end up cakey and grumpy.

 I suck really bad at properly removing my nail polish, I always just pick it off. The bonus of this is I don't really have a problem removing glitter polish.

I'm super bad at remembering to use a heat protectant on my hair. I just never remember to, I guess it's a good thing that I don't use heat on my hair very often. Actually usually only on my bangs which get regular trims.

Speaking of regular trims, I'm really bad about that too, my hair dresser is 40 minutes away so I usually put it off until I absolutely have to get them trimmed.


Non beauty things I suck at:
Waiting. I am the most impatient person ever and I'm currently waiting on some news that will affect a lot of things in my life and whether or not I'm moving next year. I'm supposed to know in a few days which by definition is today. I'm really hoping to know by Friday at the latest or I swear I'm going to go insane. This waiting is why I haven't really posted anything this week, I've been to anxious.

See that mean face?
(that's me waiting)
