Beauty Dilemmas & Makeup Mishaps

I've been a little frustrated this week as my motivation to blog has decided to grow a pair of legs and do a runner from me! It's so annoying when I have the time to write but instead my mind is just a blank canvas. So, apologies for lesser posts this week, I'm hoping to get back to normal as soon as I can! I first spotted the below image online and it inspired me to write a little post about those pesky beauty dilemmas. I'm talking about those times when your makeup doesn't go right, heck it doesn't even go left, so I have devised a list of all the annoying things I come across when it comes to getting myself ready. Don't worry, I don't walk around with messy makeup, I'll fix it first! This is just a bit of a jokey post - hopefully you will relate to some too!
TIL winged eyeliner is equally hard to draw on the computer as it is on your face
Right handed nails: As a right handed girl, whenever it's time for me to paint my nails, I can usually bet that my left hand nails will be lovely and neat until I move onto my right hand where I end up covered in nail varnish and most of it isn't actually on my nails. This is the main one on the image that I relate to the most.
Limited time in the mornings: This may not be such a beauty one, but we all know that dreaded moment when the alarm clock sounds at ridiculous o clock. Yes, I know I have to get up but do you have to be so annoying? *Presses Snooze* Twenty minutes later, there's barely any time to perfect my makeup or hair before I have to be out of the door, so it will be a pretty shabby job!
Eyeliner Smudges: This has been driving me nuts this week. I always use liquid eyeliner on my top lids and have recently started using a new Rimmel liner which has a very thin tip. I am slowly getting the hang of it but just as I think I have, whoop its all smudged to under my eyebrows.
Mascara Life: The same applies for mascara, you know when the brush is too big, you may poke yourself in the eye (ouch) or one I did just today was end up with mascara marks on and under my eyes - how did I manage that?! If you have blonde hair and love your mascara then I can sympathise with you, as when I had lighter hair I was forever getting black mascara on strands of my hair just after I'd washed it.
What makeup mishaps drive you mad? x

  1. The nails really bug me. I have so much trouble getting my right hand to look presentable.

  2. I always end up getting mascara on the bridge of my nose when applying it, not sure how but it nearly always happens D: & I am also right handed, I have become a lot better when using my left but it still looks a mess *sigh*
