'Beauty Things I Suck At' Tag

4 comments
It's October already! I'm so happy its now Autumn and we'll be coming in to Winter before we know it! There's lots of little things to look forward to; chunky knit jumpers, Halloween, cosy nights in and bonfire night! Of course there's lots more too, but this is definitely my favourite time of year - when the nights get darker sooner and it's the perfect excuse to snuggle up safely in front of the fire! I know it's super early but I'm already planning what presents to get for who and I cannot wait to go Christmas shopping! I'm loving looking through all of the gorgeous gift sets at Boots and I'm definitely considering treating myself to a Beauty Advent Calendar! Today's post is a tag you have probably seen before - Beauty Things I Suck At. I have really enjoyed reading other bloggers posts as we all vary; what one person is brilliant at, the next just cant get it right no matter what! It's a nice little reminder that nobody's perfect and its all about learning what works best for us!

 
Contouring.
Now, I know this is a popular aspect of beauty and makeup - we've all seen Kim Kardashian's contouring photo! If you're a little bit like me and clueless as to what contouring actually is; it includes using different shades of makeup such as blusher and bronzer on your face to highlight your features. I have never actually tried this but I can't help but feel I'd rather just stick to my usual foundation and a bit of blush!

Lipstick/Lip gloss.
I often see other bloggers posting about their brand new lipstick/lip gloss but I just can't 'get it' myself. Don't get me wrong, I think it looks great on others but I just don't think it suits me! Maybe its because I've never worn it often, I tend to focus on my eye makeup more; but when I wear lipstick I don't feel myself! On the rare occasion that I do wear a lipstick, it annoys me when you have to keep reapplying it after eating and drinking sometimes! As for lip gloss, I can't stand that sticky feeling it gives you on your lips, it makes me want to wipe it off straight away!
 
Eye shadow.
Now and again I will remember to apply a little bit of eye shadow! The only one I 'trust' is Rimmel's Smokey Quartz and I wear that when I actually remember! I always worry with eye shadow that I'm going to end up looking like I've got myself a black eye thanks to too much shadow!

Nails.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love nail polish and I'd happily buy every different colour there is if possible! However, when it comes to actually painting my nails I'm so clumsy! I always end up with the polish spreading all over the tips of my fingers rather than just the nail! I love seeing other bloggers nail art too and I wish I had a steady hand to do this! I have tried before and lets just say it didn't go down too well! If you're like me and slightly rubbish with your nails, have a peek at my nail stickers post here - its so much easier, trust me!
 
Brushes
I did branch out and treated myself to Real Technique's Starter brush kit - but have I got to grips with it? No I haven't. I have heard so many good things about using brushes to apply makeup and how it can benefit your makeup look, but I just can't be bothered with it! I find it so much easier to put my foundation on with my fingers after using a good primer.
 
I tag you all to do this post!

  4. I'm awful at contouring too! I think it's something that's hard to follow online or from a video or photo because everyone has such different shape faces and that really makes a difference in how the contouring is done!
