Beauty Things I Am Rubbish At.

I know I'm not the only person who completely fails at doing certain beauty tasks. I mean I can apply my lipstick well-ish, I can pick a lengthening mascara and I am better at painting my nails. However there are many things that I am rubbish at and today I thought I'd share some of them with you. 

Tanning is something I really haven't mastered, I mean when I use gradual tan like the Cocoa Brown Gradual Tan or gentle bronze (review is here.), I am not too bad. However when I apply spray tan or mousse that gives you an almost instant colouring, I am awful. I end up with streaks, I end up being darker in some places and it tends to go blotchy. I end up getting frustrated with myself and give up and this is why I cannot do fake tanning.

Now I know you are all sat here thinking, what? How can she be bad at foundation but for the simple reason I can never get it to blend well into my skin and it looks cakey and I just hate foundation. I can't tell you the last time I wore foundation. I have picked up the lightest shades possible in some of the drugstore foundations and they look orange when applied, absolute nightmare.

Shaping My Eyebrows
Is this even a thing? Basically my eyebrows have no shape to them whatsoever and maybe I should consider going to a salon and getting them done but when I pluck my eyebrows I just can't seem to get any shape to them. They just look flat and sluggish.

Although I try to "contour" I don't think I'd convince many people that I've done it right. I naturally have quite good cheekbones but sometimes it's nice just to emphasis them a little more but oh no, I can't do that. I never know what look to go for when "contouring" and all it looks like is that I've got the wrong shade of powder near my cheekbones. 
What beauty things do you suck at?


  1. Hahah I relate to this soo much x Contouring just looks so cakey on me and overall just looks so bad

  2. I really suck at applying false eyelashes! Luckily, I don't really need them but would like to try them a bit. It's taken me a while but I'm actually improving at contouring now :)

  4. I suck at gel liner. it's just not the right eyeliner medium for me.
