Beauty Mistakes I Used To Make

Over time my make up skills and trends have certainly changed, the way i look at make up and the outcome of make up has changed. I thought i would share with you some of the mistakes* i used to make.

Here is a list of beauty mistakes i used to make*

  • Not matching my foundation correct and believing that i had incredibly pale skin so i looked like a ghost.
  • I used to smother my face in talcum powder because i thought it made my skin feel soft I was about 12 ok!
  • Neglecting my brows – i even shaved them off once and thought that drawing on tadpole shaped eye brows was nice? Then i though that over grown brows wouldn’t make a difference. Oh how i was wrong eyebrows are something that can make or break a make up look.
  • Applying my blush incorrectly; Looking like coco the clown with big pink dots on my cheeks.
  • Spider Legs for mascara; Remember the extremely clumpy mascara stage, i used to sleep in the mascara to make it quicker and it would build up more..
  • Foundation on lips – I’m all for nude lips but foundation on the lips it just not attractive especially when the lips are so dry and cracked.
  • Not even having a moisturiser or skin care routine until i was about 15/16
  • Not using setting spray and wondering eh why does my make up run away after 3 hours..
  • Shaving non wet legs with no products. Just the thought makes me cringe now, no wonder my legs where always cut to shreds.
  • Not realising the importance to brushes or beauty blenders. Now id be lost without my brushes and sponges. Oh and another thing is keeping them properly cleaned and sanitised.
  • Not using conditioner on my hair, so i used to shampoo it once and wonder why it was always so brittle and tangled.
  • Not putting eyeliner in my water line but under my eye. Yep i looked like a panda.

 

Oh wow how tragic did i used to do my make up? What i know now i defiantly didn’t know then..  I can’t find many but here are some throw back pictures of myself from the age 13-15..

*these are things i consider as a mistake, if this is something you do and it works for you then so be it. Its make up what works for one doesn’t always work for another. Everyone has there own opinions.
