7 Beauty Things I Suck At

The other day I was creating a makeup by which I used false lashes and I had a huge problem by putting them on nicely. It's also noticeable in photos that I didn't glue them as I should, and that gave me the idea that I could talk about the beauty things I suck at. Some time ago a tag with the same name was very popular, and although lately, I don't read much about it anymore, I think it's never too late to talk about things you're not good at. I mean, no one knows everything and we're not good at everything, right? 

1. Applying false lashes
Appyling false lashes is my nighmare. I can never apply them nicely on my eyes. And even when I manage to apply nicely one on one eye, I usually screw the second one. Because I often wear a thick black winged eye line, mistakes aren't that visible but when I don't you can totally notice that I can't put them on as I should. I really admire people who wear false lashes on a daily basis, I could never do that. It just takes too much time. The biggest problem for me is to them place nicely in inner corner of my eye - they always unglue. 

2. Doing my eyebrows
I have thin, strangely shaped eyebrows because I plucked them for many years. Ever since I became interested in makeup, filling my brows was a total disaster. I know many people hate how I fill my brows but it's the best way I learned till now. And because one of them is higher than other, I never manage to do them the same, one always looks higher and thicker. 

3. Curling my hair
Ever since I was younger I wanted to have curly hair. But my hair is thin and heavy and curls don't last long. Not to mention I really hate using the curling iron. It takes ages for me to curl my hair and when I'm nearly done the curls on the side where I started are already almost straight. I discovered that the best way for me to get wavy hair it's to do a french braid and sleep in it overnight. In the morning I have wavy hair but, of course, it doesn't look the same as if I would use a curling iron. 

4. Using face masks
I really suck at using face masks. There are moments when I use a mask once a week (especially when I'm testing something for my blog), but more often I just skip face masks and sometimes I don't use any for months. 

5. Using body lotions&creams&oils
Since I got pregnant I take care for my skin better and put oil on it every day, but before that, I was so bad at moisturizing the skin all over my body after the shower. Once in a while, I applied a lotion or a cream on, but definitely not every day. I admit, I'm just too lazy to do that.

6. Contouring my nose
I never ever contour my nose. I just don't know how to contour it to make it look nice. I learned how to contour my cheeks but that's it. If I try to contour my nose, it always ends up looking strange.

7. Applying a bold/vibrant lipstick without a brush
When I watch Youtube starts applying dark or vibrant colours on their lips without a brush I just look them with admiration. I have very uneven lips and a brush is a must for me to apply those lipsticks nicely. Otherwise they end up over the edges of my lips.

Black and White

I was told few times that dark and black colours aren't for pregnant ladies. "They should wear bright clothes because those make them prettier," I heard many times. Well, while I do like bright clothes, I often wear black. Black and white are one of my favourite clothes combination. Both colours are just so elegant and classic. 

In the past month of my pregnancy, I started to miss wearing high heels. To satisfy my wish, I decided to combine this outfit with nude high heels. No, I didn't walk around in them because baby bump and high heels aren't the best combination (except if you were very stable on heels with big bump), but I put them on only for the sake of these photos. 

I'm really happy that my darling agreed to take these photos (although he always complaints) because I'm really satisfied with them. Kovačeva domačija in Nedelica is just amazing place for taking photos.

FOTD: Blue Eyeliner

In the summer there are three staple makeup looks, I usually like to create and wear: a look with neon eyeshadows, a look with blue/turquoise eyeliner and a look with bright, vibrant lip colour. A few weeks ago, when I bought a special drawer for my makeup, I went through it, threw away what was old and meanwhile rediscovered some amazing pieces in my collection. One of these makeup pieces is NYX eyeliner Extreme Blue. I decided to create a look with it, but of course, I had to play with colours and add a special touch to this look.

I started with light yellow eyeshadow in the crease. I deepened it with darker yellow, which I lightly blended out with neon green. I also decided to add the same neon green in outer V. All over the lid and in the inner corner, I applied a light beige shade. Then I applied blue eyeliner. 
I really liked how blue eyeliner played with warm colours on the upper lid, but I wasn't sure if I should use the same type of colour on lower lid as well, so in the end, I rather went with colder colours. I created a gradient effect from baby blue to darker blue and purple. I prolonged purple line and between it and blue eyeliner applied a bit of shimmery white eyeshadow. On waterline, I used white pencil and in the end, I applied mascara. If I'd apply false lashes as well, this look would probably look even better, but I didn't want it to be too dramatic.
On the rest of my face, I went with soft, nude colours. On my cheeks, I used a peachy shade of a blush and on lips a nude pinkish lipstick.

Enjoying Last Days

My due date is in two weeks and although I can't wait to meet my baby, I try to enjoy the last days of my pregnancy. Everybody says that my baby bump is so small for a nine-month pregnant lady, but I, on the other hand, feel like a whale. The heat is also annoying big time. There are some things that became so hard for me to do and I already miss them, like doing my nails on my feet or wearing high heels, but on the other hand I try to enjoy in movements of my baby and touching my baby bump because soon my baby won't kick in my belly anymore but in person, hehe. I never thought I'd say this but feeling movements of a baby inside you is one of the best feelings in the world. :)

The other day my BF and I had a little photo shooting and I decided to share few photos with you. I hope you don't mind. The dress I'm wearing is from Lidl and it's similar to the green one I showed you here
