WHY OH WHY
Going through the teenage years meant a lot of experimenting with my own looks and believing that every single one of them looked great on me. I was quite a late bloomer when it came to my looks. I didn’t really cared about them until I was 16/17 years old. College and first year of university was my experimenting days. Looking back at photos, boy oh boy was I wrong, thinking I’d never make any mistakes. These aren’t the usual smudged eyeliner, too light foundation. They are the next level. Here are my beauty mistakes I’ve made.
Plucking them so much that I’ve got a huge gap between them. No one wanted a monobrow right? I plucked them so much they were thin as well. I never used an eyebrow pencil back then so they looked non existent! This was whilst I was in college. Because of this ungodly mistake, I have a photo of me trending this look on my drivers license. It’ll stay with me until I need to renew it which would be when I’m 28. Luckily I never had a photo like this on my passport otherwise kill me now.
I’m not sure how and why I started colouring my whole eyelid from the lash line to the crease with liquid eyeliner. It was hard to remove as well. This must have been a paint my numbers phase I went through since I dropped fine art at A-Level and was missing the course so much that I wanted to re-live it a tad. This only lasted around a year, during my college to university transition.
During the day was fine. It was at night where I would go out clubbing, I’d pack on the blush or bronzer so it’ll show up I’m photos and make my cheeks defined. In a rare few photos, it looked perfect whilst in most, I was a clown. I even did it for my grad ball. Back then, I thought it looked great in photos and now, I’m ashamed. Hands on my face thinking what was I even thinking.
