My Beauty Secrets

- As soon as my nail varnish starts chipping off, I will pick it off. I also pick it off if I'm anxious or bored.

- I never wore make up til I was 18 and then I only wore eyeliner for about 4 months before I brought other products.

- If I'm in a 'can't be bothered' mood, I will use baby wipes instead of micellar water to take my make up off. I normally regret it the next morning and wait for a spot to appear.

- I feel very uncomfortable if I'm outside house without make up on.

- I am 21 and I've only purchased one thing from lush, having a trip soon to correct this.

- I learnt the majority of my beauty/skincare knowledge and about the products from bloggers/YouTube.

-I don't brush my hair every morning, it looks better after it has been washed with my natural curls. I run my fingers through, to get rid of knots.

- I hate how my feet look without nail polish, it's rare I have them unpolished and pedicured. Even other peoples feet gross me out, especially if they aren't groomed.

- I buy lots of lipstick and always forget to re-apply throughout the day. I feel like it's a little waste of money because I don't wear them as often as I should.

- I still can't get to grips with contouring and highlighting.

A short and sweet post of my beauty secrets, share some of yours?
