The Weekly Post #8 // Make-Up Firsts and Fails TAG

Today I am going to do the "Make-Up First's and Fail's Tag", I was tagged by the lovely Zoe from Zoe Georgina. To be honest I actually haven't seen this tag before this but it seems quite interesting as well let's face it we didn't begin as make-up pros now did we! So I am going to prepare myself and try and think back to when I first started wearing make-up - this might be difficult. 

A first and a fail that every single girl has faced is foundation, it is surprisingly difficult when you first begin to know about foundation. Like everything - there is a lot of products that all do different thing and that are for different skin tones. And there is not a great selection of colours for foundation at the high-street. Especially when I have pale skin and a lot of foundation are very orange based meaning one thing - tango-ed! Never a good look! 

Also blush, doesn't sound difficult but the way I used to wear it... well lets just say it was very bad and I can't believe I ever did it.

Eyebrows - They are one of my biggest  pet peeves when not done write to the person! Now don't get me wrong everybody have the write to look how they want but when eye brows are far to thin or not kept maintained or not filled in my you've got a full face of make-up on but no eyebrows including what  I call "foundation brows" ahhhh!!!! 

I have never gone through the phase of bright eye shadow - thank god! But it has never really been plain sailing and that includes eye-liner!

As for lips all I can really remember is that I used to wear this one lip gloss from 17 and I went through about 5 tubes of it! It was a hideous pink with a kind of metallic streaks going through it - wrong on all levels! 

Well that's pretty much the most of my firsts and fails and well thank god they are over and I can tell between good and bad! I am going to tag to do this...

  1. I love this, thank you for tagging me! I have the same issues with eyebrows, I am actually bordering on obsessive with mine and hate seeing them done wrong!

    1. Thanks lovely! I will do it soon :) I think bad foundation is universal for everybody - everyone has had bad foundation at one time or another! Becki xx

  4. Agree with the foundation! I've looked pale as a ghost and brown as a berry - neck upwards - before finding my HG foundation. Even now, if I try something else once in a while, it settles in pores or cakes or something else goes wrong. Now I need to work on paying attention to my brows x
