It's been another weekend of nothingness! It's not that I crave something to do, like work or anything, but I wouldn't mind a bit of a more exciting life! Of course it's what I make of it myself and I guess I just have to accept the fact that it's a time now that there's nothing too exciting going on... 

I got up rather early for a Sunday today and I was very determined to play around with some lipsticks and eyeshadows. I wanted to start early as I find it hard to do anything later in the day..! However, you know that morning coffee, it can take some time. I'm not really a morning person so I need some time to evolve from that sleepy zombie and into a normal human being. I had some lovely chit chats with a few #bbloggers while I enjoyed my coffee though, that helped ;)

I did a couple of make up looks, both with my new Mac Quad Palette and Urban Decay Ammo Palette- mainly focusing on Cranberry and Greensmoke/Satin Taupe.
I really need to just practice, practice and practice as my impaired vision makes it quite difficult to do detailed work! (Because naturally I can't wear my glasses when doing my own makeup).
I struggle the most with my left eye. When I'm going to put eye liner or eyelashes on my right eye - I would have to close it, of course. But since I have much more impaired vision on my left eye I can seriously not see a damn thing - I literally put liner on like a blind person... Can you imagine anything more annoying than that?
Gosh, I am just so grateful that I am not actually blind, that would be the end of me. Period.
So I guess I just have to get really great skills in applying makeup with a blurry vision ;)
I figured another technique today that made it a little easier for me to apply liner:)
I hope I can go back to contacts again soon, but it really doesn't help on detail work like applying makeup to my own face anyway, my eyes just can't seem to focus.
Sometimes it gives me the motivation to practice and just do it, but other times it just brings me down and I am only focusing on the things I no longer can do as easy as before. 

OK, that was todays little complaining! ;-)


Do you have anything you struggle with/want to get better at when you're doing makeup?

Are there any other makeup obsessed four-eyed people out there who knows what I mean? :)

    1. I'm so happy to hear that and thank you for lovely words Ray! :) Yeah, I always used to wear my contacts before applying too and even though it still wasn't great it was better than nothing at all! ;)
      Haha, I know, it needs some practice! I don't know how many times I need to re apply my liner sometimes, it's quite frustrating! xx

  2. I have the exact same problem! I have terrible vision and my left eye is the worst. I can do my right eye makeup pretty good, but as soon as it comes to trying to apply eyeliner or lashes on the left... it's not happening. I haven't worn contacts in a few years and I've been needing to go and get a new prescription for them, I need to get on that!

    Cyber looks amazing on your gorgeous self! It really suits you. x
