Beauty Secrets: Part One.

Because it’s Friday, and I’m late for work…

-When I take my makeup off, just for walking around inside the house, I take all my makeup except my eyebrows – the better I did them that morning the longer they stay with me for.

-I’m convinced I look like Michael from Eastenders without makeup on.

-I still can’t quite get to grips with toner – I don’t think I ever will.

-I don’t like being in water. If I didn’t have to bathe I probably wouldn’t.

-I’m currently missing half a toe nail. Yes it looks weird and YES it is a biatchhhh to paint.

-For some reason my skin always looks really good if I eat a banana a day, which is weird because until I was about seven I was allergic to them.

-I started plucking my eyebrows at the age of 11 to tame my crazy monobrow. I also have a LOT of baby hair around my hairline – when I was born it used to meet the tail end of my eyebrows. Apparently I looked like a baby monkey. Thanks Dad.

-When i’m anxious I pick all my nail varnish off – it’s such an attractive sight…

-My friend Elisha tells me my eyebrows make me look a little bit like boy George.

Happy Friday!

    This was really funny, I'm pretty sure that you don't look like Michael and I must start eating bananas because you have great skin. Happy Friday!

    I read the other day that you're supposed to take off make up when you get in, not when you go to bed, and I can't believe it had never occurred to me before. Hopefully it will start making a difference to my skin soon!

    What a cute little post, I think everyone has some little insecurities. And I'm actually incredibly jealous of your eyebrows, they're awesome!

    Ahah loved this post!! πŸ™‚ And love your eyebrows too, they're gorgeous! I didn't have a monobrow when I was a kid but had massive, fat and wild (still wild though) brows. It's funny (and weird) looking to old pictures of me ahaha.

    Good to know I'm not the only person who doesn't like water! Whilst I like a bath when I'm in it that's about it and it and I'm not one for swimming etc.
