The beauty things I suck at

Contrary to popular belief us beauty bloggers aren't pro's at everything when it comes to makeup. In actual fact, we're just like you normal folk in the sense that there's days when our eyeliner flicks look really, really uneven, and our contour looks a bit of a muddy mess. Oh, and let me let you into a secret, we also use that famous 'right, that's it, I'm not going out' line when we can't get our lashes on in a paddy... But shhh, don't tell anyone! 

 Anyhow, before I go of onto a tangent about makeup meltdowns- I could write a book on all of mine- here's what I'm not so pro at... 

Applying False Eyelashes | You know I mentioned I could write a book on all of the makeup meltdowns I've had? Well, applying false eyelashes was definitely the cause of more than one of them. I'm just SO bad at it, no matter how hard I try- let's just hope that the sticky-up inner lash look will be in one day, if only for my sake. 

Fake Tanning | People that use fake tan and can pull of that 'I've just came back from sunning it up in Marbs' look, as appose to the orange glow- shall we call it?- really make me green with envy.. Or should I say orange with envy? Anyway, I'm just really rather rubbish at it. It's the whole process of exfoliating, moisturising, and then waiting for it to dry. No thanks, I'll still to the pale look! 

Shaping/Filling In My Eyebrows | Well... Let's just say that my eyebrows definitely aren't 'on fleek'- that's the cool thing to say nowadays, right?! How do you girls get them so perfect? I'm yet to master the whole 'fade' effect. Brow lessons please *hand up in the air emoji*. 

Remembering to wash my make-up brushes | Before you all assume that I'm really dirty and don't bother to wash my makeup brushes at all, I do... Just not as often as I should. I know, I know, it's important to make sure that they're clean, but is it not just one bore inducing, tedious task? 

Lining my lips evenly with lip liner | I absolutely love bright lipstick, so you'd have thought I'd be a dab hand at applying lip liner. Well, couldn't that be further from the truth, I'm useless at it. I'm definitely no Kylie Jenner when it comes to pouty lips, I guess I'll just have to practice at that whole making your lips look 50x bigger than they really are thing. 

And so there we have it, that concludes the beauty things I suck at. What do you struggle with beauty wise, anything on my list?
