Taking it off because where’s the fun in that?

Other than that, eyeliner, because my eyes are hooded, also both are shaped very differently, and the left side of my face is raised about half an half an inch (okay I can’t word that right but) higher than my left so everything looks kinda wonky and ugh. Getting eyeliner on is just a pain with hooded eyelids especially winged eyeliner cos I have to put SO MUCH of it on so it at least looks “straight”.

Same as you Christine! I also don’t love curling my eyelashes. I know that sounds weird but I have these crazy lashes that are always pointing in 12 different directions and curling/taming them always takes forever and it’s so easy to screw them up and overcurl certain areas.

Lately, I have lost all patience for removing my mascara in the evening. I have been leaving it too late, and when I get around to it, I’m tired and annoyed. No cleansing method feels fast enough, and if I try to rush, I always lose an eyelash or two. Bad beauty habits!

Eyeliner is my least favorite part. I’m legally blind in one eye, do trying to get both eyes even is a mission impossible level task. To make matters worse, my blind eye is losing tone faster as I age, so everything looks slightly lopsided anyway. I’m actually starting to think seriously about cosmetic surgery.

Honestly, pretty much every part other than putting on my makeup feels like a huge chore, lol. My least favorite is washing/conditioning, drying, and detangling hair. Ugh! I’ve always been bad at cutting and filing nails, and I used to love painting my nails…I found it relaxing “me time,” but now I just lose patience. Oh, and shaving, major freaking chore!! Actually, that’s probably my least favorite then comes hair then nails.

Makeup has been a fun and important part of my daily routine until I developed psoriasis. Every aspect of the process I used to love is now a nightmare I’ve yet to solve. Menopause has added to the dryness and lines with spotty patches.
Before I can even apply makeup I need to solve the cleansing and moisturising issues!
I would be so very happy if the issues of older women and sensitive skins were addressed more often…and PLEASE remove all perfume from cosmetics and skin care products! Thanks for the rant!

Filing my nails (hate the feeling & I can never seem to get the shape perfectly right), filling in my brows (takes me much more time than it should) and blow drying my hair (also because it takes too long).

Agreed with Christine. I also dislike tweezing or any sort of hair removal–shaving, waxing, etc. Makeup removal is also a hassle.

I don’t dry or straighten my hair… Problem solved! 😀
Cutting my nails is also the one thing I keep putting off.

Trimming and reshaping my nails. They grow quickly so they need filing once a week but I normally leave it two weeks and do a full trim and reshape. I’m into ovals at the moment so shaping takes a while and I need to get a better nail file!
Also definitely hair removal! Everyone says they are jealous of how thick the hair on my head is and how quickly it can grow but this works everywhere else on my body! I finally caved yesterday and waxed my lip as no sun has made my skin pale and my moustache dark! Over winter I’ve been growing my leg hair and waxing so hopefully by summer my regrowth won’t be so bad. I’d like to be able to shave my legs in the morning and not have leg stubble by the evening >.< When I have excess money (ha!) I will definitely look into laser options.

Laser removal is without a doubt the best (albeit most expensive) beauty investment I ever made. There are a few sessions left to do for when I get excess money too, but it’s already life-changing 🙂
