Why a blog?

I give up, easily.
Anything. Everything.
Because of a lack of confidence.

People won't like me, laugh at me, think I'm stupid.
That is why my entire life I hid away, in dark clothes.
Black, dark blue or grey.
Anything to make me invisible.

I never used make-up in high school because I didn't know how.
My hair was always the same because I had no idea what to do with it (ponytail, tightly pulled back, in case you're curious).

When I was 18 I got married and I wanted a change.
I wanted the real me to come out.
But I still had no clue how.

At 26 I started this blog.
So that I wouldn't give up, wouldn't forget where I was going.

This is my journey, feel free to walk it with me, every step of the way.
All my failures, all my mistakes.
But also my winnings, my happy moments and my bliss.
I'll be honored to have you with me.

The right wing

Make-upPosted by Fashiondisaster Sun, November 17, 2013 13:22:25
I'm not a morning person.
Really. I'm not.

I love my bed and I hate leaving it before 10 am.
I also like to stay up late (my inspiration comes in the evening, and so does my energy), so that's a bad combo...

In the morning, you won't find me a very interesting person, I don't talk much and I am very grumpy.

The one thing that really gets me cursing tough, are my wings.
Nope, not my angel wings.
The wings on my eyes.
With eyeliner.
That never does what I want it to do.

You know what I'm talking about, right?

Either they are too thin.
Or too thick.
Or they get smudged.

Then you have to fix it with cotton sticks (oh, the joy), while you do that you, of course, smudge your mascara and take away half the make-up you had already used for your eyes.
And after all that misery I, mostly, look like a panda.

This was after a bath, but it comes close... (Embarrassing... but I did promise to show you my mistakes so...)

It's only since a few weeks that I am really determined to get "my wings" right (I am trying for months but it didn't mean to me as much as it does now).
Before I didn't bother and settled for mascara alone, like this:

I had seen so many youtube vids and descriptions of how it should look that I really felt discouraged (and clumsy).
Knowing that the internet is swamped with pictures like this:

You can't really blame me, right..?

When I found this joke it made me think of myself:

But, like with all things in life, I found out that the key is practice (sounds lame, right?).
It's like riding a bike (cliché...), really, the more you try, the more you learn.

At the moment I use a brush (a small one), from H&M (about 2,95 euros) and draw the line first with regular make-up, if the line is wrong it is easy to erase it.
If it is the way I want it, I go over it with the real eyeliner.
I mostly use a pencil, not a liquid, because I find liquids harder to control but they do give a better result (if you can handle them).

I'd love to see all of your wings so please, feel free to comment :)
In the meantime I'll keep practicing, promise!
