10 reasons why I will never become a beauty blogger

After my post about why I don’t wear make-up, and my recent co-operation with Demak’Up I received a few questions about beauty blogging and why I don’t do it more often. So I devised a short list of 10 reasons why I should leave beauty blogging to the pro’s and want to stick to my trusted style-niche!

  • I don’t have a clue what I’m doing.
  • “Soooo… bronzer and blush are not substitutes? You use them together?”
  • I never knew your face could be divided into so many zones
  • It took us a total of 3 hours to get my make-up done, take product shots and make portraits. Outfit shooting takes me usually 15 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to walk to a location and another 10 minutes to shoot.
  • …and I haven’t even spoken about the editing!
  • Getting  the light to fall on your face just right to avoid shadows is a tough job!
  • I am way to conscious about my skin to let the camera come so close to it. Too. Much. Detail.
  • I have very wrinkly eyelids. Is that weird?
  • IllemasquWHAT? And do I really have “sexplosion” on my face?
  • The only fall out I know is Fall Out Boy. I like their latest album, by the way.
If you, like me, could use a little help with make-up and want to learn the meanings of words like “crease” I suggest you stop by my girls Inez, Natasja, Elien and Natalie and their blogs for all the tips and tricks you need!

    wrinkly eyes must be a red head thing, because I have them too!

    Hahaha, love this! I could never be a beauty blogger either! While I like make up and trying new products here and there, I mostly like sticking to tried and true products and make up styles. It takes me 10 minutes to get ready in the morning. It’s crazy how it takes some girls a half hour or an hour to get ready! Yikes!

    haha umm are you serious? I thought you used either blush or bronzer too! Are you supposed to use them together? I have no idea how that would work…..

    Makeup confuses me too! I have foundation, powder, blush and mascara and lipstick. But skip those most days to just wear BB cream and lip balm. Easier! πŸ™‚

    Ha! Why I will never be a beauty blogger either. I just learned from you that you use bush and bronzer together…

    I like their latest album too πŸ˜‰

    You’re very pretty without and with the makeup… do what makes you comfortable!

    Thanks for the mention! I guess the wrinkly eyelids are in the DNA of our family (good job dad, good job. Nope).

    Hahaha, I love this so much. Also, I’m don’t see the big deal about make up. If my skin were clearer, I wouldn’t care to wear it, either.
