On Sharon’s channel I saw the “Beauty Things I Suck At” Video, which was really funny. I don’t know where the tag originated, but there are loads more videos to be found on Youtube. So now I decided to make my own non-video version of the tag. 🙂
Plucking my eyebrows

I do pluck my eyebrows, however only a little bit, as first of all, I find it painful, and second of all, I feel that my hair is just stubborn. I like thick and natural eyebrows, but there are always this few hairs that are out of place but it seems impossible to get rid of them!

Applying false lashes

I know, I know… there are many tutorials explaining how easy it is to apply lashes (see Beautylish for example). I also bought some that are self-adhesive so that I don’t have to bother applying the glue first. Then I bought this Bourjois Lash Tweezers, but still… I am completely incapable of applying them properly and usually I give up quickly, because I get too impatient with myself. 🙂
Styling my hair
I just cannot make a proper hairstyle, no matter how many times I watch tutorials. Even the easiest tricks seem not to work on my hair, or maybe I am just having two left hands. On a daily basis I therefore usually just put my hair into a simple knot in the back of my head.
Washing my makeup brushes

Ever since I started using brushes to apply makeup I have started a small collection. One of the reasons why this is collection is ever growing is that I hate washing them! The more brushes I have, the longer in between I have to do a washday. Well, at least in theory this solves my problem, until I realise once again, that this approach obviously means I have to wash more and more brushes each time… *sigh*
