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.

I'm not super good at finding youtube gurus, I mostly end up watching cranky monotone people who don't explain themselves well.

 

BUT there are definitely things they can do that I can't do.  For instance: put on eyeliner.  can't do it, tried ever method, every formulation and though I can line my bottom lid my top lid is gonna be line free forever.  But the youtube people can do insane things.  They line their eyes normally, they do cat eyes, they do smokey eyes, they line their waterlines.  I'm super impressed with all of them. (these are probably all skills that ya'll have.  i'm very impressed.)

A few of my favorite gurus include: Raeview, Blushingpixie, and LisaEldridge! Smiley Happy

ooh! thank you!

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

Winged eyeliner... I try it every time before I take my makeup off and it just doesn't work lol 

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

I have a difficult time getting both sides to look the same -- so frustrating!

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

I simply cannot do my eyeshadow like they do.  I try, but theirs looks professional and mine looks like a little girl in her Momma's makeup.  Smiley Wink

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

I think when I first started out with makeup, I had twenty shades of Maybelline in a given time on my face, haha!

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

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

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

I can't either with mascara; it always ends up on the lid somehow.

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

Something that helped me was using an index card of some business card on my lid behind my lashes Smiley Happy

Blending eyeshadow

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

Definitely something I still struggle with!

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

Nothing. Smiley Very Happy

 

I don't watch YouTube "gurus."

 

 

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

Not gonna lie -- Youtube was part of the reason my makeup collection tripled within a year haha!

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

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,

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

I can't either! Colors always end up on my browbone! haha

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

eyeliner, eye shadow and false lashes.  I really need help with my eye makeup skills lol

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

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

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

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 Smiley Sad

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

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 Smiley Wink  She def has my respect!

 

xo, Mia
