Beauty Confessions I Shouldn't but Will Own Up To

Beauty Confessions I Shouldn't but Will Own Up To

At the moment I have five inch regrowth at my roots (that is not the main confession although it is grim sight to behold), why you ask? I can not make up my mind if I want to stay blonde or go over to the dark side and don't see the point in damaging my hair further on a whim. Luckily it has reached the point in which it looks like it is was intentional and not just sheer laziness. Anyway the point I'm getting at is I have contrasting hair and when tied up some of the blonde ends lay flat against the dark roots looking like little white hairs.

Last night while combing my hair after a shower I thought I saw my first grey and straight up panicked. I'm in my twenties and the shock was all a little too much. In a state of blind panic I not only took photos of my scalp using my camera from every angle imaginable but insisted everyone in my household join me on the scavenge hunt for the elusive grey hair. Turns out it was a loose blonde hair lying on the dark root, no grey hairs as of yet. Lord help me when they do appear! With that in mind here are some other bizarre habits of mine...

- I pick mascara off my eyelashes, I seem to do it subconsciously and it does tend to be my left eye which would perhaps be the reason why my eyelashes are sparse.

- I know it is not recommended but I rather enjoy cleaning my ears with cotton buds.

-  I have been known to pluck any stray hair on my upper lip with my fingernails.

-  I don't care what anyone says, squeezing blemishes is life's great pleasures. Yes it is slightly gross and can lead to scarring but you'd only be lying to yourself if you said the temptation wasn't rife.

- Every now and then I am convinced I am loosing my hair and will count every hair that I have shed while brushing.

- I don't brush my hair everyday unless I am going somewhere, if I am working from home it is more often than not tied into a top knot. I should stress I do still shower twice a day but don't always wash my hair.

- I don't always fill my brows in, I know for some they are the be all and end all but for me I don't feel they look all that much different - filled or not.

I am sure there are tons more but that is all that really comes to mind at the moment. I thin we have all gathered from this post that I am slightly neurotic. Feel free to over share in the comments below in regards to your weird and wonderful beauty habits.

  1. Great post Adrienne! I also love to pick my spots, unfortunately. That and mosquito bites! I also used to pluck my eyebrows with my fingernails, didn't know any other person who plucked something with that lol.

  4. I too am often convinced I'm loosing my hair especially when I wash it! I don't fill in my eyebrows either because I have a fringe so don't see the point but luckily they're pretty thick at the front anyway xo

  6. This was such a cool post to read and we all have that one beauty thing we hide. I can relate with the hair thing and with mine being curly if I comb it and not style it goes frizzy so the top knot is my BFF.

  11. Yes I can honestly say I can relate to you on a few of these. I fall asleep often when I'm watching tv with my make up on. Not very good for my skin. Katie x

  17. Great post, I am guilty of a lot of these. My hairdresser found my first white hair the other day, it was very depressing. I am only 27!! x

  18. Oh my god, I always pick off my mascara too and it's always from my left eye as well. It's such a bad habit and why I never have long eyelashes. I will just sit in class and pick it off, or pick at my nails. Glad I'm not alone! I like this post idea too!

  26. Picking mascara off of my eyelashes was something I loved doing when I used mascara. I have no idea why I did it though, it was just impossible to resist.

  38. Great post! I noticed my first grey hair at the age of 21 and I was in a complete panic haha. I think I have about 5 or 6 more in the same area now at the age of 27, almost 28. They're underneath the top layer and no one else notices them except me, so I've learned to accept them lol. My mum has a pretty cool looking streak of silver/ grey on the side of her head and I'm wondering if mine is going to go the same way considering they're all together in one place, Em x

  39. I got my first white hair (white not grey and actually a streak not just a single hair) when I was 21. I was actually seriously ill at the with a brain infection and I think it made me lose the pigment in a streak of hair. It was difficult to see when I was blonde but now I dye my hair dark brown it's pretty easy to see at my roots. Luckily though it's underneath other hair so you can only see it if I pin part of it up x

  45. I get really paranoid that I'm losing my hair too, last year it got to a point where I was taking photos of the back of my head to check for balding spots.

  46. My hair is rediculously thick, and at 24 I am going quite badly grey. My hair falls out in clumps, but never seems to get any thinner, its annoying and ends up everywhere.... im bad for sticking it to the walls in the shower cubicle... then forget to wash it off... hairy walls! I will also admit that I will only wash my hair twice a week... its long and thick and drives me totally bonkers washing drying and straightening it. But its super pretty, so cant complain too much :P

    Oh another slightly embarassing confession, I cried when I seen Mac was coming to the Dundee Debenhams, goodbye money, it was nice to know you.
