Beauty Mistakes I Used To Make

I'm sure I'm not the only one that committed a number of beauty sins when they were younger; i often wonder what the heck i was thinking when i think of all the many beauty mistakes i made, i thought it might be an interesting and funny post to share with you some of the sins i committed.

1. Panda Eyes
I used to wear black eyeshadow all over my lid - thankfully I'm pretty sure it had terrible colour pay off so it was more like a dark grey but still, it wasn't a good look and i don't know what i was thinking or why my mum ever let me go out wearing it. It didn't suit me and i can only imagine it didn't look so great underneath my glasses either!

2. Scrunchies
Scrunchies were massive when i was younger; i think they are slowly making a comeback but when i was in primary school i used to love wearing them and i don't mean just one, i used to layer those bad boys up especially if i had my hair in a bun. I seriously thought i was the bees knees.

3. Foundation Shades
Before you start to panic i was never in the 'oompa lumpa' category - their used to be a lot of girls in my high school who came in with full on orange faces but i don't think i have ever been guilty of that. I was however, not very careful with matching my shade - i would literally just pick any up and hope for the best and most of the time it was an alright match but its only has I've gotten older that I've understood the importance of getting the right shade.

4. Necklines
Another foundation problem - i never used to blend my foundation past my face. Now i don't recall having any bad necklines which either means i was lucky and it blended in or my random shade choices were bloody good but i know i never used to take my foundation further down so it was blended out properly into the neck.

5. Not taking my make up off
I used to be seriously lazy with this - I'll hold my hand up and say i still have some lazy evenings when i can't be bothered doing it properly so i either use a wipe or just my micellar water but when i was younger some nights I'd just leave it on and wash it off in the morning then reapply it, how my skin coped with it I'll never know but i was terribly lazy with removing my make up - i can definitely say I've gotten much better and always make sure I've removed my make up whether i do it a lazy way or properly.

6. Green Eyes
When i wasn't sporting a black eyeshadow i seemed to be quite fond of green - why, I'm not quite sure because now i would never dream of using a green eyeshadow on me. It's just not really a colour i suit and why i thought it was trendy to wear I'll never know.

7. Eyebrows
I never used to do anything with my brows at all - I've always had quite full brows and whilst i love them i didn't really help them out either. I hated tweezing them as i found it painful so i just left them to their own devices and thankfully they didn't grow wild.

8. Temporary Tattoos
Using these wasn't the mistake it was more my choices of which ones and the placement of them that I'd consider the mistake. I'd always pick the worst ones like tweety bird or tacky tribal patterns (sorry, if you have either of these - they are just not to my taste) and id always put them in the worst places like right in the middle of my stomach or slap bang in the middle of my arm. I also used to be that really annoying kid that would walk around and pretend it was real!

There are so many other sins that I'm sure i committed but I'll save that for another post! For the record, i just want to point out and say that I'm not trying to be insulting - just because i may have considered something as a beauty mistake doesn't mean it's a mistake for you!

What beauty mistakes did you used to make?

  2. Ha! I totally did the green eyeshadow thing for YEARS too! I bought some scunchies the other day, but only to sleep in because my hair extensions can't cope with normal bobbles.

  6. Oh God, I done most of these too haha! But I was particularly fond of hot pink eyeshadow - looking back I'm pretty sure I probably looked like I had conjunctivitis or some other serious eye problem. We all most have looked amazing haha.

  7. I used to do the massive thick make up as well - but I was a goth kid, so it sort of worked for me?!
