5 Beauty Blogger Basics I Fail At!

Hello gorgeous!

As someone who likes to blog on the internet about beauty and what not, I happen to fail at a handful of basics that should be a piece of a cake. So, I thought I'd share and hope I'm not the only one!

Shall we begin?

1. The Oh-So Popular Winged Liner

If there's anything in the makeup department I would love to succeed at, it is definitely the good old cat eye. For some reason, I can rarely achieve the perfect, equally good on both eyes, winged liner. Because trust me if I ever do, it will be blog-worthy.

2. Regularly Clean Brushes

Don't get me wrong, I definitely try to wash my brushes and deep clean them as often as I can, and it very much pleases me when I do but oddly enough, I'm always a procrastinator when it comes to actually cleaning them.

3. Painting My Nails

Now there are many reasons to why I avoid doing my nails. Here's a list:
a) I will probably find something to do within a few hours that will get my nails chipped.
b) When they are chipped, I will remove the nail polish in order to paint my nails again, but that probably won't end up happening and I'm back to naked nails.
c) I never know what colour to go for. First world problems, I know.
d) Waiting on them to dry is just a dreadful thought.

And the list goes on! But I can't deny how feminine and good I feel when I do get them done!

4. Moisturising

This is strictly when it comes to moisturising my hands. I moisturise every other body part as well as my face, but when it comes to my hands, I can't be bothered unless I'm going somewhere fancy or something of that sort. But in general, I'm just lazy about it!

5. Being A Good Instagram-er

Social Media is a place where you need to be on as frequently as possible if not everyday, that's where I fail especially on Instagram. I just don't seem to have anything Instagram-worthy and when I do, the photo isn't good enough. Again, first world problems.

So that's a little list of 'beauty blogger basics' that I'm genuinely bad at, fingers crossed it's not just me? Let me know in the comments down below!

I hope you enjoyed!

Until next time,

  1. Wow, I identify with pretty much all of these! I actually painted my nails yesterday and I'm surprised that they're still on!

    1. Haha, the pain! I painted my nails yesterday and let's just say it's an accomplishment xo

  2. Totally agree with the winged eyeliner - I am a major fail in that department too! 25 years and I still suck!!

  3. This made me laugh haha! Also how come you only post 1-2 times a month? If you have a spare 5 minutes can you check out my blog-thank you!

    1. I'm glad it did! I've been busy with university and work so I've been squeezing a post whenever I have the time since I do like to put an effort to my posts. Also, I've recently given the blog a makeover which is what I was working on more than the actual content but it's almost done so I'm back with more content. Hopefully I'll have more up now!
