landscape-1455313658-rbk-beauty-tipsI have never before been more intimidated by make-up than I am when I see a Youtube tutorial on achieving the perfect night to day, day to night to bed make-up look in no less than three hours.

Not to mention the no less than 10 products that are absolutely necessary to achieve said looks. I am not a fan of make-up, matter of fact, I don’t know the first thing about applying make-up.

I jumped off that train very early on when I stabbed myself in the eye with a pencil liner and by all indications, make-up has evolved quite a bit from what I remember.

These days, when I want to add a little pizzazz to my otherwise (comfortably) dull, dreary and mundane appearance, I pop out my EOS lip balm, apply, press my lips and I’m off.

As I’ve mentioned before, I am stepping out of my comfort zone for the birth month and snazzing up myself a bit. So I have been googling to get ideas of how I should go about this.

I am completely rudderless when it comes to fashion and beauty, I think I would make a perfect candidate for What Not to Wear (holla at your girl).

374062436I mean I wore crocs to work, no I don’t work on the beach; I work in an office with stiletto wearing females whose make-up just borderlines Cirque du Soleil levels.

My mom has been my biggest proponent in my following through with this make over venture that I’ve undertaken, “your cheeks are perfect for blush, Β and just put a little face powder on.”

I dabbled in modeling when I was younger (all tall skinny girls on the island dabbled in modeling) and she has been in love with the ‘new penny’ look I tend to achieve when I decided to shower, ever since.

But! Have you seen the make-up, beauty and fashion trends these days? OMG, WTF! I so admire the artistic work that is put into these masterpieces. Some are over the top gorgeous while others are really like wtf is going on there?!

The following are what I have come across lately and had I balls, I’d have probably tried the really daring ones or maybe not.

WTF Beauty Trends



Barbed Wire Brows.Β This is a definite NO for me.
Carved Brows.Β A bit elaborate but I’d definitely rock this as a Carnival look.
Dragon Brows. Cute ‘ish’ but nah!
Feather Brows. I would Mos. Def. rock the hell out of this look (had I enough brows to pull it off. *facepalm*
Squiggly Brows. Um… No… No…and NO…!



I am still browsing the internet for looks that speak to me, what do you guys think about the beauty trends these days…? Are you into make up? Do you follow the trends? Let me know in the comments below. πŸ™‚

    1. Ack! I always think that I can snazz up my make up, but when I wake up in the morning.. don’t wanna! Too much effort for the mornings before work! The crazy eyebrow thing is just nuts. Like seriously, who has the time?!
      Great post!!!

    You’re too much!
    The squiggly brow thing is the worst but what’s up with that smeared lipstick look??πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

    I used to be really hopeless with make-up… I’m a little better now but that’s only because my 2 best friends started drawing brows and doing the whole foundation, concealer thing, leaving me to be looking like a dried stick beside themπŸ˜–πŸ˜–. I decided to learn how to at least draw some decent eyebrows but mhann! I can’t be doing it everyday! That thing is work!

    sigh. I’ve rambled again. Bye KedaπŸ’•πŸ’•

  2. I have to say I’m terrible at makeup, and I only wear mascara and one colour eyeshadow haha. The beauty trends nowadays are crazy. I just think who would actually do this in β€œnormal society” πŸ™ˆ

  3. Ok, some of those brows freaked me the f*** out! What the hell? I’m assuming these are tutorials on how to be an awkward drag queen? A member of the traveling circus? Perhaps the makeup of the next Zoolander movie. Anyway, thank you for this laugh but I’ll stick with my foundation, mascara and lipstick.

  4. I have a few friends that are into the “study tutorials on YouTube, spend over $1000 a year at Sephora, create a masterpiece on my face” thing and here I am like “I used TWO colours of eye shadow like a CHAMP!!” Haha, I truly don’t understand the world of make up. Thank you sharing, this gave me a good laugh!!

  5. What on earth is going on here? You need to apologise to my eyes for exposing them to these images!! That squiggly brow photo? What?? I think that girl’s lips concerned me more. Her whole look was like she’d applied her make-up and then given her fact a wipe with a towel! I’m not a big make-up wearer either and cannot be bothered to spend long on applying what I do put on. I’m fine looking plain!

  6. Oh my holy hell at the furry lips!! GROSS!!
    I am still learning the art of makeup, I must be getting better at it because my daughter told me she is so proud of me, I do not look like a clown anymore :O
    Pretty sure in previous times people would look at me and think “no mirror, no family, no friends”
    Poor lass!!!

  10. I’m not so into makeup lol. And I don’t really follow trends. Just the normal brows is enough for me. I hardly even wear powder. Red lipstick? Nope. Lol cuz I feel I’d look like a witch. I just don’t have the confidence that I’d pull it off lol. I hate the eyebrows trends tho. A simple look is enough.
