There are certain things that girls can learn quickly and makeup is one of those things. Although every single girl in the world is pro in makeup and knows what she is doing while trying new techniques of makeup. In fact, a true makeup lover will always be unhappy with her overall collection and will ensure to add more beauty products to complete the set. But, learning makeup has never been a smooth ride for any girl.
If, we are proficient in something, that doesn’t mean that we never had a hard time with it. It takes like hundreds of attempts to become a perfectionist especially in case of makeup. In this post, I will highlight some of the craziest things that almost every girl go through while learning makeup:
- Reckless Kohl Smudging
Have you seen those 2-minutes smoky eyes videos on YouTube? Well, not only have I seen one but I’ve also tried it and the outcomes were hideous. Sometimes I wonder why I was expecting to attain the classic smoky eye look just by smudging the regular kohl on my lids.
- Lipstick Bleeds
For those who don’t know about lipstick bleeds, it is the main reason that ruins the entire grace of colorful lips. Makeup beginners think that lipstick application is the easiest part of makeup. On the other hand, it is more of an art. While learning makeup, we tend to pick any random color and apply it on lips with a free spirit.
- Foundation Cakes on Skin
When I was 12, I used to think that foundation is used to make skin look fairer. That’s what many girls of this age consider. I understood the actual use of foundations and concealers when I was 18. Besides this, makeup beginners tend to pick the wrong type of foundation and end up making their skin look cakey.
- Burnt Hair during Heat Treatment
I don’t know about others but there was a time when I was naïve enough to burn my hair strands while using a hair straightener. Yeah, that’s what happened when I dared to pick a heat treatment appliances without any supervision. Thankfully, students have become the masters. I am completely familiar with almost every appliance which is used in hair styling.
- Clown Eyes
It’s not easy for makeup beginners to select a shade when there are like 100 options in a palette. Besides, it may be hard for a beginner to understand the right color combinations of eye shadows while learning makeup. This is the reason why some makeup beginners end up with clown eyes.
- Wrong Brush Mess
When I was learning makeup, I was shocked to know that there are more than 20 types of makeup brushes. I was wondered because there was a time when I had just 4-5 brushes in my vanity box. Commencements are complex but somehow we girls manage to get out of it.
- Eyebrow Disaster
When you are up to professionals for your eye brows, then you are probably out of danger. But, when you are trying to do any eyebrow DIYs all by yourself, you aren’t that safe. This happens often in case of eyebrow tinting. In fact, I still look up to professionals for any minor eye brow treatment.
- Highlighter trouble
While learning makeup, I used to consider highlighters and bronzer as extra stuff in a beauty box. It took me a notable time to understand the worth of every single type of makeup product and especially highlighters.
- Too much of Illuminator
Illuminators are great for night out parties and other evening occasions. But, when you are learning makeup, you might get confused while applying illuminator on face. It’s not just the right facial spot but the quantity is also an issue. Illuminators are for dewy glow but too much of it leads to a devil look.
- Glitter Dilemma
If you are learning makeup and still have thoughts of trying glitter makeup, then you must be a daring person. Every girl wishes to get that perfect glitter makeup look and shine in the crowd. But, it takes the practice of like hundred attempts to deal with the glitter dilemma.
Things that I mentioned above are commonly experienced by the girls who aren’t really acquainted with numerous beauty and makeup products. But, these problems don’t last for long duration once you get to enjoy wearing makeup. Once you are familiar with the basics of makeup, it will become just a matter of few minutes for you.
