I am in no way, shape, or form a beauty guru but these tags were popular in the beauty community. So lets just pretend that I have friends and someone tagged me to do this. Basically beauty gurus talked about what they are not good at and beauty confessions are what we know we should do, but avoid. I first am going to start with the beauty things I suck at.
I can apply maybe one or two neutral colors and blend them a little bit but when it comes to colorful eye shadows and smoky eyes I start to look like Ke$ha and not in a good way.
I can put products in it to make it look acceptable but styling hair is not my thing. I can straighten it up curling, crimping, braiding, and any other hair related thing is just a fail.
Part of my problem is that I don’t even own a bronzer or contouring brush but I tried improvising with a dark eye shadow. It looked like I bought a power foundation that didn’t match my face so I just gave up after applying it to my cheek bones.
4. Painting my nails
If you know me, I love having my nails painted. Unfortunately I’m so bad that it’s just a huge hassle and I usually wait until every nail is chipped before I remove and repaint.
5. Putting outfits together
I’m actually one of the worst people when it comes to putting an outfit together. I would say I have an ok sense of style when I buy things at the store but matching and styling is not my thing.
Now for the beauty confessions…
1. Using heat protectant
I do not even own a heat protectant and since I straighten my hair it’s really damaging to my hair. I don’t know why it never crosses my mind when I look for other hair products.
2. Sleeping in my makeup
This one I know is one of the worst things to do for your skin and I know better. I don’t know why I don’t just remove it.
3. Going to the gym with makeup on
Now I’m not one of those girls that will put makeup on to go to the gym. However, if I’m already wearing makeup, I don’t remove it to go to the gym.
I do get my eyebrows waxed but they’re so thick and full that I don’t do anything else to them except maybe brush them. I usually neglect the brows when doing my makeup.
5. Wash my brushes
I seldom remember to wash my brushes. Some people wash them after every single use! I’m surprised I really don’t have much acne after treating my skin so poorly.
6. Wearing sunscreen
Obviously if I know I’m going to be out in the sun I will apply sunscreen. If I’m not going to be outside for very long I usually rely on the SPF that’s found in my makeup.
7. The ‘stache
This is the Internet, no biggie. But yes I do have to get my upper lip waxed and sometimes if I wait too long to wax it, I just apply extra foundation there to cover it up.
So those are all of my beauty things I suck at and beauty confessions. Obviously I’m not going to be in the makeup industry when I get older. Oh well, you don’t need to look good to be a dietitian.
