5 Beauty things I wish I was better at

I love all things makeup and beauty but I’m pretty rubbish at it and there are a lot of things I would like to improve. So I thought Iwould tell you about 5 I wish I was better at.

Winged Eyeliner

I think winged eyeliner looks so good but I cannot do it. The wings never match and it always ends up way too thick. I have tried many different products and practised loads of times but the liner always end up toothick, wonky, uneven and it just doesn’t look good. I am determined to get better at it though.

Applying False Eyelashes

I have managed to apply false eyelashes once for Halloween a few years ago but that was the only time. I love the look of false eyelashes especially for a night out but I just cannot apply them. I’m not sure what the issue is but I always end up putting them more on my eyelid rather than the lash line. I’ve tried watching tutorials but I’ve stopped trying as I get too annoyed and end up ruining my eye shadow.  

Maintaining a Skin Care Routine

I do have a skin care routine, I wrote a post about it a while ago, a couple items have changed but it’s basically the same (linked here) I always think I need to start taking better care of my skin so I start doing the routine again but I always end up stopping after like a week or two. Usually because I skip a night as I’m too tired or just forget and then that’s it the whole routine stops. Again I would like to maintain a skin care routine and just have nicer skin. My skin isn’t too bad at the moment but it could always be better.

Applying Fake Tan

So many people I know fake tan and it’s just something I can’tdo. I have fake tanned twice before when I was a bit younger and erm yeah we won’t mention how they turned out (pretty awful). I don’t have a problem with being pale, I’m never bothered about it but fake tan is just something else I just can’t do. Chances of me trying fake tan again are pretty low as I don’t want to risk looking like a wotsit but maybe I will sometime.

Eye shadow

I don’t wear eye shadow for everyday makeup but I always doon a night out. I can obviously apply eye shadow but I’m not very good at smoky eyes or coming up with ideas. I also need to improve my technique and how I blend.This is one thing I think I will definitely improve on if I just practise a bit more. One thing I really want to learn how to do is cut crease, I think it looks so nice.

So that’s it. Those are 5 beauty things I can’t do but would like to be able to do.

Hope you enjoyed this post

  2. I can definitely relate to this! I don’t wear a lot of make up but I love doing it, and I’ve always envied how perfectly people can do winged eyeliner. I’ve never worn it as I’m too scared to try in case I get frustrated that it’s not as good as everyone else’s!

  6. I can so relate to this! The only difference is that I’m pretty decent at following my skin routine and applying eyeshadow. I wish I was better at eyebrows and eyeliner, however!

    1. I’ve started getting better at sticking to a routine but I still struggle. Eyebrows and eyeliner are definitely the trickiest to do
