my 5 biggest beauty crimes

Got tagged by Violet Honeybee, Ichigobunnie, and Chyix2 to admit to 5 beauty crimes...

1. Skipping concealer

I skip undereye concealer frequently because i just haven't found one that won't go crepey on me no matter how much I moisturize :(

2. Not getting enough sleep

I don't get enough sleep for the past 2 years i've been working and its starting to show on my face/hair :( I get a lot more blackheads and less even skintone now, and my hair is thinning ... My fault partly though, I could go to bed early but I'm such a night owl.

3. Neglecting hair / clothing

I tend to spend too much time on the actual makeup application when i'm getting ready and not have enough time to do my hair, or pick an appropriate outfit :S Sometimes i'll have really nice makeup but messy/flat hair, or a more dramatic look but wearing clothes that are too casual.

4. Rubbing my eyes too much!

Don't know why but my eyes itch often at night and i'm too lazy then to get up and wash them out with water so I end up rubbing them. But I've been cutting down on that and just using a fingertip to gently scratch the eyelid instead.

I noticed a few lines have been developing since I started wearing contacts - is it because of holding my eyelid open to insert the contacts? or was it always there but I only noticed now because I started scrutinizing my eyes more since wearing contacts/makeup...?

5. Rushing out the door without fixing eyelash glue...

I don't wear falsies unless I have time but when I do, I still take too long to do my makeup. So sometimes I end up stepping out the door even though the glue on the falsies hasn't quite been concealed yet :S Which makes me super self conscious about it and defeats the purpose of putting them on...

I really like neutrogena 3-in-1 concealer for eyes :) guilty of...2/5 of your beauty sins

cheryl said...

putting on falsies can be tricky. i used to wear them every day till my eyes started developing a sensitivity towards the glue! darn...

petitebelle said...

I'm really guilty of #4. I rub my eyes SO MUCH that they become red and irritated all the time. Not to mention I'm probably getting tons of bacteria in there :/
