Beauty blogger confessions

Beauty Blogger Confessions

I read beauty blogs pretty much every day and there are so many products/trends/ideals that you see over and over again. There's often the portrayal of a 'perfect' lifestyle, perfect make-up/skincare and the perfect bedside table, so I thought as a blogger, I'd put together a little list of confessions just so you know that lots of bloggers are pretty normal!

  • I don't really know what a stippling brush is used for.

  • I don't 'fill in' my eyebrows on a daily basis...I wouldn't even know how.

  • I don't have a perfect, all white house, which is ideal for product photographing.

  • I wouldn't know the first thing about contouring.

  • I rarely wear lipstick...don't get me started on lip liners.

  • I can't apply liquid eyeliner.

  • I don't own an Ikea Alex thingy-majig.

  • Sometimes I don't even take my eye make-up off before bed…

    What are your beauty blogger confessions? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Great post. I only wear makeup 1-2 times a week.. lol.. Do I even have the right to call myself a beauty blogger?!!

      1. I only ever really wear eye make-up!

    2. Yes to every one of these! I use my stippling brush to blend foundation in because I find it a nicer finish than a 'foundation' brush - how do you stipple anyway? haha xx

      1. What even is stippling? Haha! I have got a stippling brush though...

    3. I feel ya on the perfectly white house - I definitely don't have that either. I live in New York City, so when it comes to apartments, you take what you can get! x

      1. Haha, the perfect white houses are such a lie!

    4. I loved this post! I definitely agree with the liquid eyeliner point, I'm absolutely rubbish at it! x

      1. I have yet to own one, I feel like I need one though!

    6. I couldn't go a day without filling in my brows! I don't own the ikea storage thing either! x

    7. Haha this is such a good post! I don't have all white painted rooms in my house either and I don't have the Alex drawers and I never burn candles :) xx

    8. LOL! I don't own Alex and can't apply liquid eyeliner (or any eyeliner for that matter) too! My tiny flat is also not photography/beauty storage friendly. :) But that's the beauty of blogging - we can all be different! :) X

    9. Haha great post! I never fill my eyebrows in! Yesss what is a stippling brush for?! (although I do own one ofcourse) and once my lipstick rubs off once thats it, I'm not applying it again that day!
      My house is all white though!

      1. I'm jealous of your all white house!

    10. Well, I am no blogger, but I have a few confessions anyways:
      I always take my full-size moisturizer when I travel, just because I think the jar is pretty.
      I have never tried anything from Nars.
      I never wear lip liner nor do I own one.
      I can't stop myself from pricking blemishes.
      I "revive" my high end mascaras if they dry out before I have used them up.
      Let's just stop here, shall we?

    11. I admit I don't even do anything with my eyebrows, please don't gasp too much at that...! ha! But I don't have time! I also never wear foundation or anything in summer, not even BB creams, I just go naked, apart from a little eyeliner. I find it easier than sweating when walking to work, and I feel free'er! I am sure if mnay admitted to what they actually wear day to day, it wouldn't differ too much from your list too! Great post :)
