A few weeks ago, as I was watching the telly with Tim, I randomly tweeted this.
“I’m a beauty blogger, but I can’t put on fake eyelashes to save my life. If you’re a beauty blogger, is there something you cannot do?”
To my surprise, many beauty bloggers replied the tweet, sharing the beauty things they can’t do, and are still struggling with. I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one who can’t do the following:
- False eyelashes baffle me. I just can’t seem to be able to put on. I’ve watched videos, I’ve practiced and wasted a lot of falsies (the desk usually ends up looking like there are dead creepy crawlies all over it).
- I’m still struggling with the application of eyeliners, especially liquid and gel ones. Even though I found a liquid eyeliner that doesn’t make me want to poke my eyes out, I can’t do the flicked/winged tip.
- I don’t really know how to contour my face with bronzer. I usually end up looking as though I have war paint on my cheeks.
- I only know how to style my hair one way. Hair bloggers like Hair Romance drive me nuts with envy because I wish I knew how to do hair-up-knot-thingy with certain thingamajigs like she does.
Dang, and I call myself a beauty blogger? Well, I believe I still have things I can bring to the table that can benefit my readers, and that’s why I continue to do what I love doing. And I strongly believe this applies to ALL beauty bloggers as well. So what if you don’t know how to do a few things? There will always be something someone else don’t know how to do, but you do!
It’s also a reminder that we’re only human, and that in this fun journey of beauty blogging, there are still a lot of things we can learn from each other.
What about you? If you’re a beauty blogger (or not), is there something you wish you knew how to do? Is there something that drives you completely bonkers that everyone else seem to know how to do it, but somehow you don’t?
