I did my makeup and beauty loves so I thought it would only be fair to do my makeup and beauty hates, too. These are the things that bug me most when it comes to anything makeup and beauty related and some of it really really does bug me!
Firstly, I hate nude lips with a passion. I know many people love it but I don’t think it looks good on anyone at all. The rare occasion that it will look ok is in an editorial shoot and even then, I still won’t like it much at all. I don’t understand how anyone thinks it looks nice. I can understand in having neutral lips if you’re wearing a lot of eye makeup but you don’t need to have them looking completely nude as if you’ve covered them in foundation and powder. I can’t understand why anyone would purchase a lipstick in this shade purely to wear alone. I’ve never liked it and never will and I always cringe when I see someone walking around like it thinking it looks lovely, it doesn’t.
For the same reasons I really don’t like it when people don’t apply any colour to their cheeks. You only end up looking ill in my opinion. If you’re going to apply foundation and everything else then at least apply a little colour to the cheeks.

I know a lot of people love them but I can’t stand long fake nails or even real ones for that matter. I don’t bite my nails and can easily grow them really long but I just think it looks tacky (plus they’re annoying!) I also can’t stand nails that are too curvy, like below. They need to be slightly squared off a little. I admit I’m hard to please when it comes to nails, I don’t even like my own half the time!
Lastly, well, obviously there are other things I don’t like either like not matching your foundation correctly but this one will be the last I put here anyway and it’s unshapely eyebrows. A lot of the time when I see them, they’ve clearly been over plucked but other times I often bump into the same people who’ve had the same shape for years and it’s just totally wrong for them. I can usually see the shape they’re trying to create but they often end up with something like below instead. It’s a lot better to go to a professional if you can’t create the shape you’re after rather than end up with dreaded tadpole eyebrows.
What are your makeup and beauty hates?
