Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I'm sure y'all watch YT tutorials and even have some of your own favorite gurus you always turn to.

 

What's the one (or more than one) thing that those gurus do that you can never do in your day-to-day makeup routine?

 

For me, I simply cannot use a "pea-sized" amount of primer or foundation to cover my entire face like the gurus can, even when I'm going for a lighter coverage.

my skills are on the good to better side, BUT one thing i can not do is a cream concealer contour!

they bascially use a full coverage concealer to cover and contour the face and then a brownish foundation on the cheekbones, sides of nose, and around the face but i tried it and i looked like i had a white mask with brown edges!

 

i wish i could learn an easy way to do this

That's quite difficult, and I'm not sure if it'll work with my oily skin. Let us know when you perfect it :smileyhappy:

A lot of gurus are pretty basic & consistent, so I'm kind of with Janine, that my skills are on par, if not a little more advanced than your regular run of the mill guru.  The one that I do love & is way more advanced & technical than most, would be Promise Phan.  She can transform into just about ANYONE, and that is one thing I cant do :smileywink:  She def has my respect!

OMG, I struggle with putting on falsies, it's pathetic!

Oddly, while I can almost put lashes on clients with my eyes closed, putting them on myself is ridiculous!  I've succumbed to half lashes at this point :smileysad:

I can't blend with my fingers.... It always ends up badly with me, LOL!  I have fat fingers...

Yeah, I gotta go with blending eyeshadow properly.  That is really difficult!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Especially when dealing with just neutrals! Overblending has made some eye looks look muddy on me.

Hmm I hate to sound haughty...but I don't think there is anything they can do that I can't do. Perhaps special FX worthy things...but then again the average beauty lover can't do that.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

True! It's also all about knowing your facial features, eye shape, etc!

I can not do wing eyeliner or apply mascara without getting it on my eyelid.
