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 care about them until I was 16/17 years old. College and first year of university were 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 at 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 driver’s 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.
