7 thoughts on “Five things I’ve learned about makeup since I started my Instagram account!

  1. You’ve improved so much over two years! I think the thing to remember is that there will always be someone out there who is better than you (or anyone for that matter) at something. It shouldn’t take away from the progress you’ve made, your earlier makeup looks were still really pretty.
    I also made a similar post not too long ago but I knew absolutely nothing about blending shadows or cut creases when I started posting looks and reviews, I just kind of learned as I went. I look at my current photos and I know I still would love to improve so much but it’s nice to celebrate where I’m at now.

    1. You are absolutely right. It’s a continuous learning process and there will always be someone furter ahead. I am very greatful for instagram though. That has really pushed me into trying to do better. I have improved more the last couple of years than in the rest of my makeup wearing life. Still a long way to go off course ❤️ but you are right about appreciating our own work even though there will always be someone better.

  2. I really loved reading this thoroughly. As someone who has only been doing this a few months on social media, I’ve been into makeup for some years now but my skills have greatly improved noticeably just in 2-3 months of consistent practice! I loved seeing your progression and of course had to creep your old looks (Still great) Although I find myself feeling harsh against my own style, I realize I don’t have the most outlandish makeup style like some paint works of pure art on their eyes/face. As soon as I started following your page I vibed with your style. You got me buying rhinestones and stickers and pearls😆

    1. Thank you so much lovely 😍 I guess we are all our own hardest judge. But as long as there is progress something must be done right 😅 And gems and rhinestones are such an easy way to make a look seem more advanced without much effort ☺️

    I am so looking forward to catch up on all those lovely posts of yours, since January was craaaazy and I finally got some time to also just sit back and enjoy doing what I like to do – like foe example reading your blog 🙂 And what a cool post to start my catch up with – I was immediately excited when I read the titel! 🙂 And it is so inspiring too read. I adore all of your looks so much on IG and it kind of gives me hope for myself to know you were not always that perfect. <The tips are great and I will definitely try to pay attention to this. Especially the over-dramatic looks – sometimes I do a look that is so bold in real life and then I post it on IG or upload a video and I feel like I can barely tell there is any colour involved 😀 This was a great post!!!

    1. I am happy you want to do that because you always have such great feedback and I really appreciate that ❤️ I am hoping for more of your videos when you get a bit more time! I have always enjoyed them, but they just keep getting better and better and you got such great content. I had some good laughs at your last one with products you did not want but bought anyway 😅
