5 Annoying Struggles With Wearing Makeup

May 2, 2020

Wearing makeup is supposed to be fun. Scratch that, it is fun. It’s like enhancing the best features of your face with some color and technique. But having it on for an entire day can be uncomfortable sometimes. But will that stop us? You guessed right, No.

Here are 5 of the most annoying makeup struggles;

1. You can’t clean your face properly when you sweat.

You have to do it carefully before you wipe off the eye brows you spent hours drawing.

2. You can’t give your face a satisfying scratch when it itches.

Itching is completely out of the question. Do it and you’ll be scooping a piece of your foundation with your nails. Even rubbing your face gently is a gamble because makeup very easily smears.

3. Answering calls with your phone pressed to the side of your face.

Absolutely not allowed. Try it and get your phone screen smudged with all the layers of foundation, concealer and bronzer you padded to your face.

4. Removing it is almost as hard as putting it on

Eyeliner, eye shadow and lip stick will cling to your eyes and lips like a clingy ex. 2 face wipes plus one entire bath later and you’ll still see traces of it on your face.

5. Did we mention how long it takes to get it on in the first place?

Don’t listen to the Youtube Tutorials. It takes way more than 5 minutes dear. You get one eyeliner right in a flash and then spend hours on getting the second eye right because eyeliner is so petty.
