Reasons I'm not a Beauty Blogger

Tuesday, 23 June 2015

 "I've been tryin' keep my grip, yeah I think I'm over this..." - Bad Sun's 'Cardiac Arrest'...

You know I really admire beauty bloggers, their ability to write a whole entire post, dedicated to the pros and cons of the latest mascara or being able to create tutorials on the most famous make-up looks! Like seriously I have never been one for make-up, nor am I any good at applying it, but y'all are good! I really wish I was good at doing make-up, because I am forever seeing beauty bloggers doing tutorials of dewy glowed, smoky-eyed looks - that I can just never quite master - drats! But props to you beauty bloggers and all you self-taught MUA's, the art of make-up application is definitely not easy! So anyway, enough with the rambles, today I am going to tell you all the reasons why I am not (count yourselves lucky guys!) a beauty blogger. I mean up until a few months ago I did not know my concealer from my foundation! (Forever confused!)
1. Shaky hands - So, I probably have the shakiest hands in the whole of London! (Google it and I'm pretty sure you will find me there on a Wikipedia page-somewhere!). This is not a joke, my hands will literally shake to their hearts content even when stationary, so how on earth would I ever be able to perfect the feline flick! (You have no idea the amount of times I have to rub off and restart my eyeliner flick every day!)
2. Fashion Lover -  So I'm sorry to all you beauty bloggers and MUA's out there, but I am a fashion lover at heart, and would much rather spend £100-200 in Primark on 15-20 items of clothes I can wear over and over again for years to come, then the same amount of money in somewhere like MAC on about 6/7 items, that will all run out eventually AND expire! Why? Clothes always people! Fashion bloggers, I hope you're with me on this one - I trust you know where your loyalties should lie! ;)
3. Brushes -  Brushes! Another baffling thought of mine, why am I going in to Boots and seeing one blusher brush for £30?! Like what?! For something that's just going to flutter a pinch of powder over your face! MIND - BLOWN! HAHA! And while some of them look really nice and apparently the quality affects the way the make-up is applied, I wouldn't know a Zoeva from a Zoella brush (does Zoella even have a range of brushes? - see completely clueless!) Not to mention I only own two make up brushes myself, one of which now has no handle!  I mean come on - that speaks for itself, I will never succeed as a successful beauty blogger!
4. Limited Make - up - Following on from point 2, I would much rather spend money on clothes than make-up. So I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I don't own much make up, I think all the make up I own, could fit comfortably in a normal sized make - up bag, with space to spare! I watch these beauty bloggers room tour videos, with drawers and drawers of make-up and I'm like! Hah? How can you fill an entire set of 4 drawers with make-up!? How?! But I suppose that's what they think about us fashion bloggers and our 4 wardrobes full of clothes, HA!
5.Smoky Eyes - The smoky eye, ahh the make up look coveted by all! Now this is one make - up look I really wish I could do, but I can just never seem to get it right and it bothers me so. I see so many people with it and they always look so sexy and mysterious and I'm just there with my one tone dead-ass looking eyelids! Haha! Yeah so I can't do a smoky eye, and just about every beauty blogger I've seen can, so yeah. Another cross on the list there!
Now I know I have said I can't do all these things, but doesn't mean I don't want to learn. I don't think I could EVER be a beauty blogger (well never say never) but I would love to be able to master the Kim Kardashian contour or the sexy smoky eye, just to say 'I can'. I'm a very independent person and love when I am able to do things for myself, and I SO badly want make up to be one of them! But for someone who uses owns only two make-up brushes (one of which is broken) they should probably just stick to blogging fashion!

  1. This post seriously made me smile. I totally know what you mean, especially with like, the makeup storage videos and so on. The videos detailing all the products people bring with them in their carry-on luggage are especially baffling to me - you're flying, no one expects you to look flawless! Oh well. Whatever makes people happy, I suppose!

  7. This post was fun! I like to do a beauty post once in a while but I don't consider myself to be a beauty blogger. I never know what I would do with 20 different foundations... I don't even know why I would need 20.
