BEAUTY THINGS I SUCK AT

Apr 6, 2015

Do you see those super duper cute pinterest pictures up there? Well I wish I could do that, pretty nails, effortless yet lovely hairstyles. But ... no. Well, who here has no make up or beauty fails time to time? Uneven eye liner, bad contouring, panda like smockey eyes. We've all been there right? Learning how to do make up takes time, and even after years of practice, they are still lot of things that I suck at in the beauty department. 

1 - Curling my hair with a flat iron - Well first, my hair is not cooperating at all to be honest. When I want it straight it is just wavy, when I want it curled the curls will last twenty minutes max and then fade away. Then, about curling my hair with a flat iron, I have watched tones of tutorials, I have tried hundred of times but there is just no way that works on my hair.

2 - Pretty hair styles - Following with the hair issues, I apparently can't do even a simple messy bun. It always looks so bad on me. I remember being at uni, watching a girl with amazing hair just doing a perfect messy bun in like 10 seconds and being like ... why? No need to talk about fishtails or waterfall braids. Total fail.

3 - Taking care of my nails - I am biting my nails I think ... since I was in kindergarten. No need to tell you how damaged, short, thin and basically ugly they are. They only look good when I splurge on a gel nail manicure which is honestly not even once a year. Even if I tried hard not to bite them I can't stop more than two weeks. If you have any tips or products recommendations, let me know!

4 - Contouring my nose - I am not too bad for like contouring in general, I love defining a little more my face and making it sharper. I also love highlighting my cheekbones, and my cupid bow. But when it comes to the nose area. Oh god. Not good at all, I can never blend it correctly and it just make my nose looks super mudy and disgusting basically. 

5 - Fake Tanning - Maybe because I don't have a long time experience with fake tanning, and because I never really invested in good products, I always end up with patches and a super stricky tan all over my body and I think the overall result is not really natural. I do love a bit of a tan but I think I will just keep on going to the beach to have that real sunkissed look.

What about you girls? Anything you are really bad at?

  1. Oh god, I totally agree! Nose contouring just never goes right on me and I've completely given up with fake tanning after a few very patchy, orange experiences!

  2. I totally agree with you on curling the hair with a flat iron. I don't know what it is (maybe I'm just not flexible enough) but that result never turns out pretty :p I rather prefer my curling iron :P Wonderful post!
