The Beauty police - Beauty sins #1

There's some things that all beauty bloggers don't admit, it could be the use of the face wipe or the fact that you don't wash your brushes as often as you should. I decided I would count down the top 5 Beauty sins in my eyes. I really hope you enjoy this post. Before you read on I just wan't to let you all know this is a little light hearted post so please don't feel offended by it. 

5. Not using Heat protection spray. 

We all know we should do it, not many of us actually do it. I must admit I always buy it with the best of intentions but never really use it! 

4. Hoarding Makeup for far to long. 

That Mascara that has been open six months but you can't quite bare to throw out, or the first lipstick we bought at age 12 that has to much sentimental value. We are all guilty of it!

3. Overuse of bronzer.

How does it happen you go from bronzed goddess to oumpa lumpa in 1 brush stroke. One minuite you have cheekbones and the next you look like you've fallen in a muddy puddle. 

2. The cleaning of brushes. 

Hand's up if you've told someone that brushes need to be washed at least once a week yet your own brushes can go for a good 3 weeks before you remember to clean them. Or you've put of washing them because you need them for the next day when in fact you have 12 different brushes you could use. 

1. The face wipe.

This one is probably one of the most talked about sins in the whole beauty blogging community. There ok every now and then but we all know how bad they are for your skin. Yet sometimes we reach for them anyway. But we make up for it with a Triple cleanse the next night! 

I really hope you enjoyed this post, let me know your biggest beauty sins in the comments.

  2. I have makeup from an age ago as well, and I'm also dreadful at brush cleaning! My biggest one is mostly ignoring my hair, though - and not using skincare enough at all! I think I still have the whole 'teenage invincibility' thing going on :P

  3. I am definitely the worst for throwing out make up. I only really bother if it starts to smell funny! x

  4. I am so bad for washing my makeup brushes, I literally leave it a couple of months each time. I dont get the whole face wipe senario, i think they're not as bad as others say x

  5. I'm guilty of most of these things as well x

  6. I am so guilty of the wipes but I usually cleanse, tone and mositurise after ;) x

  7. I hate cleaning my brushes but can't stand them being so dirty, I can't win! x

  8. Oh god, I've definitely done all of those haha! I'm a sucker for peeling my nail varnish off too :')

  11. I'm terrible at cleaning my brushes - must do it more often xx

  12. I am probably guilty of all of these. Especially not cleaning my brushes is my favorite thing to do. I try to use heat protection regularly though and I am staying away from face wipes if I am getting home before 4 am.

  14. I am terrible at cleaning brushes... it is such a chore but I do try my best; Sometimes haha.
    Personally I don't see anything wrong with using wipes but that's as long as a cleanser is used afterwards.
