Beauty Tips for My Younger Self

When I look back at pictures of my younger years, one thing that stands out is the lack of beauty knowledge and experience. A lot of the make up looks I rocked when I was younger, makes me want to hide in the hole and never come back out. However I thought it would be fun to share some of the advice I would tell my younger self...

Put down the Bright Green Nail Polish - I don't know why but I was obsessed with bright green nails during my younger years and wore it everywhere and let me tell you that it definitely didn't suit me. Thankfully I have grown out of the bright green phase and have turned to mint green instead.

Blue Eyeshadow doesn't suit you - Nowadays I only ever rock bronze and brown toned eyeshadows as they match my skin tone the best but back in the day, I rocked bright blue eyeshadow which definitely didn't match my skin tone. If I am honest, I can't believe my mum let me leave the house with it on.

Glossy Red Lipstick will smudge onto your teeth - I remember discovering my mums lipsticks and deciding that a glossy bright red lipstick would look great on me. I have nothing against the red shade but there was more on my teeth than on my lips.

Face Glitter won't do anything special - One Christmas, I received a Barbie themed beauty kit which included some facial glitter which I worn almost everyday. I still ask my mum why she didn't remove it from me as it just made me look like I had walked into a glitter ball.

Learn how to apply eye liner correctly - During my later teenager years, I tried my best to wear liner but I just couldn't apply it correctly which meant it ended up below my eyes. I didn't even try to apply it along my lashline. Thankfully I have finally nailed the art of applying eyeliner.

What would you say to your younger self?

  2. Mint green is such a safe way to rock green nails, I love how soft it is. What would I say to my younger self...I'd say you didn't need makeup! You didn't need to go so heavy with the eyeliner!
