5 Things That Simple Makeup Tutorial Will Not Tell You

April 22, 2020

The youtube makeup tutorial will most likely make everything seem effortless. Let me save you some future heartache, stress and disappointment and tell you right away that it is not true. It will be a struggle. Just like the cute youtube work out routines, the simple makeup tutorials are far from simple.

1. The eyeliner will disgrace you.

Even when you draw one eye right, the other eye will be there to remind you that it was pure luck and not any expertise that you mastered in 5 minutes and so be humble.

2. The foundation will not sit pretty.

You see how the youtuber dabs on her foundation and suddenly her skin becomes a clean and clear canvass? Your case will most likely be different. Mostly because you probably forgot to prime your face first.

3. The eye shadow will refuse to collaborate.

Because like eyeliner, eye shadow is very tricky. It looks simple enough but when you start applying it everything suddenly starts shifting position. And if you have hooded eyes, the battle becomes of the Lord.

4. Getting the Ombre lipstick application is a battle.

One that you will most likely not win even by the 5th application. This is not a prophesy of doom, more like a prediction of failure. There’s a difference.

5. The final look will be an embarrassment.

And leave you wondering where you went wrong. But don’t feel too bad. With makeup, practice really does make perfect. More foundation to your brushes sista!
