Beauty Things I Suck At

The lovely Lucy from has kindly tagged me to do the 'Beauty Things I Suck At' tag. I could literally sit here all day if I could but here's a few of my worst!

001- Top Eye-Liner
I envy anyone that can perfectly line the top of their lid with pencil or liquid liner! I always attempt to do it for nights out and end up with big black messy eyes which I usually end up converting into a smokey eye. And don't even get me started on winged liner. I've not attempted that since my college leavers prom when I poked myself in the eye and had to cover a bloodshot eye with my fringe! I feel like applying top eye-liner is one of those Marmite beauty tasks - you can either do it or you can't and unfortunately I was cursed with the can't-do-it gene. *sad face*

002- Applying Liquid Fake Tan
Liquid fake tan is the absolute bane of my life. It makes me feel sticky and sweaty and rubs off at the slight touch of anything leaving me with patches of tanless skin. I find that it's very messy to apply and rubs onto absolutely everything! My best advice is to not apply liquid tan and then put a white shirt on - worst mistake of my life! I much prefer mousse fake tan that comes out of a pump. It's so much easier to work with and I find that it rubs into the skin a lot quicker and has a lot more staying power.  I currently use the St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and I am completely obsessed with it! If you're looking for a new fake tan then I'd definitely give it a try. 

003- Plucking my eyebrows
I just literally can't bring myself to pluck my eyebrows - ever! No matter how many times I've done it, I can still never get used to the pain. My eyebrows are quite thick to begin with so it's a lot of effort to keep them in shape. I always end up going to a salon to get them waxed because my mind just won't let me cause my body pain! I find that waxing is a lot quicker so the pain isn't prolonged :) 

004- Moisturising everyday
I find moisturising a bit of a chore as I hate just standing there waiting for it to sink into my skin. I've never liked doing it and I don't think I ever will. I've recently purchased the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream as I LOVE the scent so I've found that this is encouraging me to moisturise a bit more. Although there are some days when I still 'forget'...

I tag

And anybody else who would like to do the tag! :)


  1. I relate to all of these! Literally all 4 are things i'm horrific at! xx

    1. Hahaha! Why is being a female so difficult?!

  2. Thank you for tagging me! I am the exact same with plucking my eyebrows, I just want to cry every time I have too.. Sometimes I don't and just accept the fact that I will have a monobrow haha!

    1. Hahah I'm EXACTLY the same! Monobrow girl forever

  3. Haha great tag! I enjoyed reading it! I also cannot line the top of my eye lid. It takes for ever so I hardly ever do it!

    Would you like to follow each other on gfc and bloglovin? Just let me know on my blog! :)


  4. I can totally relate to sucking at putting on top liner! I finally invested in a really nice liquid liner so hopefully that will help. But now I can't blame it on having bad quality liner.... :)
