Fashion & Beauty Pet Peeves

Fashion & Beauty Pet Peeves


We all have a pet peeves. Some may be worse than others. Here is my list of fashion and beauty ones.

Visible panty line – Leggings, fitted maxi skirts, anything fitted and is made of thin material can lead to the outline of the panties if you wear the wrong ones. The panties may be nice, pretty or cute but the outline isn’t. I’d feel like I was exposing myself if I had VBL.

Short shorts – Out and about during the day where the peaches are on show is definitely a no. Think about the young children! At times, I want to pull them down a tad to make sure they’re covered up to save their dignity.

Sheer leggings – Peekaboo skin. Nice seeing you through these sheer leggings… Might as well add their underwear to this view. I’ve seen so many like this walking in front of me. Not pleasant.

Uggs in the rain – I haven’t seen many people wearing Uggs or fake Uggs for like a year or more. Has this trend died now? But those in the rain or slushy ice is the worst. Water gets soaked through regardless and it’s not a pretty look. This is probably a really stupid idea.

Too much bling – It’s always nice to express yourself but if the bling is excessive, it starts looking cheap. Or is that me who only thinks like this?

Foundation not matching and caking – If I see someone wearing foundation that doesn’t match the neck, I’d be tempted to go over and try to blend it out. Or I’d want to give them a makeup wipe if it’s too orange. Also, would you like some jam and cream with that cakey foundation? (A victoria sponge cake reference just in case you wasn’t on the same wavelength or my humour is really dry)

Clumpy eyelashes – Just… Need I say more?

Panda eyes – Yes I may have done the thick eyeliner before but I have stopped and learnt from it. It had become a pet peeve when I see thick eyeliner or even the use of black eyeshadow on the eyelids during the day.

Eyebrows – There is a difference between filling your brows and drawing it with a sharpie. Anything to do with the brows is a pet peeve; from the wrong fill colour to the wrong shape to the no brows with heavy makeup. My eyebrows are sparse but it doesn’t mean I’ll draw them with a “sharpie”.

Concealer/Foundation “Nude” lips – Blending the lips into the face was a trend back in the days and thankfully it’s died (I like to think). There has been some instances where the nude colour of the lips was lighter than the rest of the face. Wasn’t a pretty look. If it’s too nude, you just look lifeless. There is a perfect nude colour for everyone. It doesn’t necessarily mean the same colour as your foundation.

What are you fashion and or beauty pet peeves?

    Many of these are pet peeves of mine! I can't stand seeing someone's underwear or worse when they're wearing very short shorts. I also hate sandals with socks! Just doesn't make sense to ma…

    I think for me it's seeing someone's knickers throught the leggings or tights that is just wrong. Cake face I too feel like giving someone a face wipe y'know

    Baahaha, love this post. So many truths! LOL to VBL & drawing your brows on with a sharpie! Ha! Some of the others don't bother me as much, but some of these are just BAD. 🙂

    Aha remind me not to come too close, I don't have much in the way of eyebrows due to stress so I have to draw them on (though I think they look pretty realistic with years of practice), but I love your other points! The concealer/foundation nude lip thing is soo cringey!

    Just using leggings as pants alone already bothers me! Super strong eyebrows always seem to keep reappearing as well. Sometimes they're just too long.

    Totally agree with all of these! the only one I thing I would say is sometimes I like a bit of clump to add thickness to my lashes but not very dry or spidery looking. If that makes sense? xxx

    I couldn't agree with this post more! Another one I HATE is when I can see a really obvious bra under a light coloured top, like come on! xx

    Totally agree with the majority of these, I do love my Ugg type boots though! Luckily they're rain resistant so don't let the water in
