So the lovely Olga from watercoloursilk tagged me in a post. I am glad this post is different. I want. I’m gonna do this as a sort of confession sort of way. Ever since I started this blog, I have been trying lots of new products, have been paying a lot more attention to how they perform and have tried to use different brands. Today I will confess to you all the things I still have no idea how to do properly…
- A proper, SYMMETRIC winged eyeliner
I can do the wing alright. But then, how do you make the other one as thick and at the same angle? It baffles me every time that after all this time, I still have no idea how to do this.
- Detailed eye shadow
Ever since I invested in some brushes, I have actually started using eyeshadow, and not just black eye shadow. It may come as a shock to you but that was a huge step. So yes, I can sort of do a smoky eye… I can blend out different colours but that’s pretty much it. I have no idea where to begin to do a detailed eye shadow with a transitional colour that is visible and so on. I am no Saman from colourobsession. She is so talented, I’m curious if there is anything she cannot do! (Pssst, you’re tagged Saman)
- Letting nail polish dry
I am actually quite good on both hands when painting my nails. And I am patient! But many a time I look at them and they look dry… and I just check… and OOPS!
- Missing spots when blending concealer
Haha I actually do this… I usually put concealer on all of my blemishes and spots and such. And they I blend them and I always start from my T-Zone. But when I have spots that I do not usually hide, I sometimes forget they were there. So then when I am blending or buffing foundation, I find this untouched concealer blob!
- Shaving my legs
This is funny and annoying. I use shaving cream and so and I sit in the shower to make sure I see my legs well. I don’t cut myself, not anymore. But even after checking, I go out of the shower and find that I left 3 full length hairs! Or a section which is still in tact 😛 Pretty and stylish indeed!
- Curl my hair
I have a curling iron… But it’s old so I don’t use it anymore because I am sure that it is horrible on the hair, no protection whatsoever. And I have a straightener and apparently people curl their hair with a straightener. I just cannot do this. Never. I tried a couple of times and I gave up. So my hair will be straight till the day I die.
- Fake a bigger lip
Some people know how to line around their lips neatly to make their lips look bigger and fuller. I can do this only on 1 half of my cupid’s bow. It will never be symmetric, pretty much like winged eyeliner. So I just stick to my naturally tiny lips!
- False eyelashes
My eyelids are small. Tiny even. Smaller than most false eyelashes. How the hell do you stick these?! I saw tonnes of tutorial and I still cannot do it. I guess my last chance is to cut the lashes and try to stick them in halves. We’ll see how that goes.
They’re cute. I know how to do the regular braids. No french twists or anything like that. But I can only do a tiny one in an area I can see and manage completely. So if you ever see me wearing a ponytail braid, it’s not my doing.
- Flick out my hair
I cannot do this if my life depended on it. I usually straighten my hair spaghetti straight and I like it, but most of the time I need my fringe to be a little flicked or twisted in some way. How? How?!
I guess that’s all but I’m sure there’s more!
