Ah yes, the secret is out. Beauty blogging isn’t all that it’s glammed up to be. Well, the fact that I’m typing this blog post out in my pyjamas during the day is already giving you plenty of hints that at the very least, this beauty blogger isn’t a glam princess. 😛
To make it worse, there are some beauty-related things that this beauty blogger (aka yours truly) has been slacking off lately. It’s terrible with laziness often being the key excuse. There are some things I haven’t been arsed to do much lately and I thought what better time to tell you what they are than this Tuesday morning?
Not wearing nail polish
All right, I confess. I haven’t been wearing nail polish regularly for the past 3 months. I could count the number of times I had nail polish on all winter in just one hand. I had an issue with a nail product that left my cuticles severely dehydrated (it’s akin to my fingers looking as though they’ve been soaked in 100% acetone) and even lots of hand cream and cuticle oil couldn’t fix the issue quickly. The best way to avoid people from looking directly at my fingers would be to stop wearing nail polish for a while. To tell you the truth, after not wearing it for some time, I got a tad too lazy to apply them on my nails again once my cuticles started looking better. Tsk tsk!
Not putting lipstick/lipgloss on before leaving the house
I don’t know when I developed the habit of not putting lippie on before leaving the house. I never used to do that! These days, I’d have a full face of makeup on but I’d forget to put lipstick on. This usually means that I’ll have to apply them in the car, on the train or do a quick dash to the public loo to slap some on. Such a faux pas, I know! Note to self: STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY.
Not applying body lotion after each shower
I used to be incredibly diligent in applying body lotion straight out of my shower. Again, I don’t know when it was that I started to skip a few applications of body moisturiser. It’s obvious because my skin is starting to dry out again. Again, damn you laziness!
Not shaving my winter legs and arms
Okay, to be fair, I hardly wore skirts and dresses during winter and when I did, I had stockings on so you can’t tell the condition of the “forest” issue on the arms and legs. I can’t be the only one who forgets to shave, right? Having said that, after I wrote this post, I did dash to the bathroom and sorted the winter fuzz out so … erm … it’s not too bad, right?
I don’t know why I decided to tell you all this. Geez, what am I doing to my own reputation as a beauty blogger here? Ahem. Ah well, just goes to show that I’m human after all, with winter fuzz (thankfully now de-fuzzed) and polish-less nails. Oh, and also because I got tired of talking about beauty products. 😛
