My least favourite beauty chores

As a beauty blogger, it'll come as no surprise that I love skincare and makeup. I'll happily spend ages in the bathroom pampering myself and I'll schedule extra time before I go out just so I can enjoy doing my makeup. But there are some beauty tasks that I find a chore and it's those I'm sharing with you today...

Painting my nails
I love nail polish, I really do, but do I enjoy painting my nails? Nope! I think it's because I'm impatient and don't like sitting there waiting for my nails to dry when I could be doing a million and one other things. I also chip my nails so easily and sometimes wonder why I bother in the first place. Having said this, the Ultimate Fix nail spray has made painting my nails a little more enjoyable, as it helps to dry them quickly and prevent chipping. You can read my full review of it here.

Plucking my eyebrows
I'm sure I'm not the only one that finds plucking eyebrow hairs to be a real chore? It's not exactly fun and  there's always that risk that you're going to pluck the wrong hair and end up with noticeably odd brows. I think it's time I looked into getting them threaded!

Doing eyeliner flicks
I've been doing eyeliner flicks since I was fifteen and going through that emo phase so you would think that at the age of twenty four I'd have mastered it by now? Unfortunately not. It still takes me so long to get the perfect eyeliner flicks, cat eyes or whatever you like to call them, making it a painfully long task. This image describes it perfectly.

Anything hair related
I think drying, straightening and curling my hair are my least favourite beauty tasks of all. Even though I've got fine hair, there's a lot of it, so it takes so long to dry. The fact it's so fine also means that as soon as I've curled it and got it looking all voluminous and lovely, it drops. Maybe with the right haircare products I'd actually start enjoying doing my hair a lot more. Any suggestions?
