Same here! I can never find a pleasing shape/look.. and sometime even my brow gel can’t tame the hairs the way i want them!

This may sound silly but, covering up blemishes when I have them, poses the greatest challenge for me. There’s hope for dark circles, but sometimes it feels like I’m tackling Mt. St. Helen’s when I’m trying to cover up those pesky “mounds”!

Applying mascara. I have very short lashes and it’s so hard to apply mascara on it. I dislike curling my lashes too, so I pretty much leave it as it is and compensate w/ an eyeliner.

I have the same problem, my eyelashes are so short, it’s tough not to get mascara on my lids.

Agreeed! That’s the worst for me, I’m so lazy! It’s fun to put on but, after a long day ugh, I just wanna sleep!

Mascara without my contacts in! I just recently went back to wearing glasses more regularly, and my vision has gotten terrible. Without my contacts, I have jabbed myself in the eye & face too many times now with the mascara wand, and it’s getting a bit frustrating! Actually, I have to get so close to the mirror now, everything is hard to do because I can’t fit a brush in between my face & the mirror!

lol…sorry to laugh but I have the very same problem with having to get so close to the mirror the handles of my brushes hit the mirror and get in the way!!

Don’t apologize! The whole thing cracks me up too…I bet it looks even funnier to my husband if he dares to watch! So glad to know I’m not the only one!!!

i don’t wear foundation but i cud see where that’d be annoying. so i’ll say taking it all off. i’m good though, i never skip it now that i know how bad that is!

Only foundation *yawn*, I love everything else. And sometimes when I come home late, I am so tired & just wish the makeup would be removed automatically.

Foundation, which is why I don’t usually use it.

Mascara, I sometimes skip it.

Makeup removal is my favourite and least favourite part. Favourite because I love the feeling afterwards, but least favourite because it’s so tedious.


Why do I like makeup again?

eyeliner, firstly it doesn’t suit me and secondly I am pretty clumsy with it … so most of the time, I just abandon it all in all and concentrate on my eyelashes 😛

Ditto to that Christine! My eyelashes are straight as a board, so I constantly have to curl them. It has become the bane of my beauty routine!

Some days, it’s everything! But for the most part, undereye concealer. I guess I still don’t have the right combination of products for that flawless undereye look, so it’s not my favorite.

The times I have to dab concealer on a spot or something. I hate blemishes in my face. I use concealer as a rule in the outer corners of my eyes and a wee bit under my eyes, but I love applying make-up. Even when I am in a hurry.

I am ok with putting on, it’s the taking off, I hate. No matter how much I try, I never get all the eyeliner off. Even with a make-up remover first and then washing. grrr

Foundation! UGH! I hate wearing it but I cant live without it. I have too much red in my skin. SIGH!

trying to conceal under eye circles…i don;t wear foundations often, but concealing my undereyes, takes tym…Its all weird…just need some magic, light potion for undereyes..
which reminds me, can u please throw light on Bobbi brown correctors and eve pearl concelers…sometym in future???

Removal of eye makeup is the worst overall part. The worst part to getting it on is the mascara…b/c I dread having to take it off.

Foundation and concealer, most definitely. I always can’t wait to finish it so that I can play with my pretty eyeshadow and blush colors!

Getting all my make-up off at the end of the day. Thank heavens for Shu Uemura cleansing oil–although it looks like I’ll have to order mine on-line from now on 🙁

Lining my waterline, ugh! It’s uncomfortable, makes me flinch, and I always smudge it under my eye. ): *sigh*

Definitely foundation. I use Clinique’s Even Better and set it with an MSF natural, two products supposed to look natural, but that somewhere in the application leave my face looking cakey u.u

I’d say I neglect my eyelashes. I admire the falsies look, I am just way too impatient to apply them. Same with eyelash curling. I usually just compensate with mascara.

Curling lashes and drawing eyebrows on! It would cut the time of my makeup routine in half if I could eliminate these two. lol

Curling my lashes and mascara for sure.. They make such a big difference, but I just have no patience for it! lol

I know it only has to be done once a week, but I really dislike cleaning my brushes because it takes so long for them to dry. UGGHHH
