Confessions of a Beauty Blogger | Lifestyle

You see that beauty rulebook? The one with all the do's and don't's when it comes to make up, skin care, hair care and everything else? Well it seems like I've thrown it right out of the window! Like many of you I have some terrible beauty habits that are in need of change. But the first step to resolution is acknowledgement so here we go..

1. I don't always remove my make up.
Yeap, Rule 1 of the handbook has already been broken. I don't always remove my make up before going to sleep because the majority of the time I'm just pure lazy. At university, after a night out all my friends would be reaching for their make up wipes and removers but me? I just jumped straight into bed and dealt with the breakouts a few days later!

2. I'm forever picking my mascara.
Let me try justify this.. I have really sensitive eyes, like really sensitive. If I sit on the computer for too long at work or if the sun is somewhere near my eye range you can expect some tears. So as my eyes begin to hurt I have a bad habit of sitting and picking at my mascara. I don't even realise I'm doing it half the time.. Well until I get a glimpse of myself and see little black dots around my under eyes. Not a good look.

3. I bite my nails.
Well I don't any more. But that's only down to the fact I constantly have fake nails on. But the moment one comes off.. That's it. I'm back to biting my nails! I don't know why I can't stop, I just find it so satisfying!

4. I don't think I've ever read the ingredients of a product.
Beauty bloggers are meant to read ingredients! We are expected to know so much about what's good and what's bad but frankly I never actually have a look or understand. My whole life is played out by trial and error and if a product has too many nasties.. I guess my skin will let me know a few days later.

5. I wash my hair too regularly and then regret it.
I cannot have a bath/shower and not washing my hair. Is it just me? But every single day I have to fight the temptation of washing my hair. I just love the feeling of fresh hair but I HATE drying my hair. Until the GHD AIR came into my life. But before this magic machinery I would wash my hair pretty much every evening and get straight into bed with wet hair. Meaning - Bad for my hair and Bad for my health.

6. I leave make up everywhere.
So I mean this in two ways. Firstly, if I look inside my bag right now best believe I have about 4 powders, 2 brushes and a dumb amount of mascaras in there. Why? Because I'm lazy and just leave things everywhere! Then they suddenly appear again once I've convinced myself they're lost and I've repurchased new ones. And secondly, my boyfriend will vouch for how much my make up transfers! Just everything white around me seems to turn orange. So I touch my face, then a piece of paper.. The paper is now orange. I hug someone wearing white, well now half of my face is on your shirt. It's not technically a bad habit but annoying none the less!

Can you relate to any of these? Please don't tell me it's just me! What are you bad beauty habits? Let me know below.
