1. I DON’T POST FREQUENTLY
I feel like this is a very fitting first point considering I’ve posted, what, twice in September? Ridiculous right?! I just felt as though I wasn’t enjoying blogging, wasn’t enjoying photography, so I just stopped. Thankfully my need to get posts out and feel accomplished came back and I’m back in the blogging game. I’ve also ordered some studio lights so I can take photos when I’m most motivated to – which is always at midnight. Always.
2. I CANT DO EYELINER FOR SHIT
This is more of a ‘Why I’m a Bad Beauty Blogger’ point than a general blogger, but let’s be real, I’m not a general blogger. My niche is very much beauty and no matter how hard I try, I just cannot blog about lifestyle. ANYWAY, back to my original point. I can’t do winged eyeliner. Can’t do it, refuse to do it, it takes about half an hour and looks like I’ve scribbled my eyes in with sharpie ANYWAY so f*ck that.
3. EYESHADOW IS WASTED ON ME
For the amount of eyeshadow palettes I have, my everyday ‘neutral brown’ look just isn’t cutting it. If I’m feeling particularly wild I will do a basic orangey eye but that is literally it. I so wish I could do eyeshadow well and do these amazing pink or blue or green eyeshadow looks but my talent pretty much stops at blend darker colour into the outside bit. What even IS a cut crease and how do you magicians do it?
4. I DONT WASH MY MAKEUP BRUSHES
I’m sorry. I can hear you all screaming at me. Right now, I haven’t washed my brushes in well over a month. I’m not gonna lie, more than a little bit ashamed. It desperately needs done but I just can’t be bothered. Thankfully, the lovely people at DEE&CO sent me their Shadow Switch dry makeup brush cleaner and I have never been so grateful to try out a product.
Basically, you take your dirty eyeshadow brushes and swirl them around on the little black spongey bit and it removes all the eyeshadow, so you can switch colours! It’s a must-have for lazy girls like me. It retails at £5.99 on Amazon HERE (which is an amazing price) and it’s quickly becoming a staple in my makeup routine. Now just to find the lazy way to wash foundation brushes.
5. I HATE MOST MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS
So I say ‘MOST’ because there are some that I wear everyday and don’t turn my lips into a bumhole, but whenever I try to broaden my matte liquid lipstick horizons I end up bitterly disappointed?! The Violet Voss liquid lipstick was probably the worst, I had quite high expectations but it honestly felt like my lips were about to fall off. I’m currently trying the Gerard Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Ruby Slipper, which is slightly better but I’m finding it so patchy. I think I may have to stick to my Nyx Soft Mattes in the future.
