There are many things out there that are a lot harder than it looks. Nail designs are one of those things. I tried to paint a heart on my nail and it ended up being a disaster. I'm talking nail polish everywhere, and that heart ended up looking like a blob. I definitely have a newfound appreciation for people who are good at nail designs.
Another thing that is a lot harder than it looks is eye makeup. I see so many makeup bloggers slay their eye makeup, and they make it look so easy. I tried to recreate a beauty blogger's smoky eye look, and I ended up looking like I got punched in the eye. Not cute at all.
After that experience, I have been practicing a lot with eye makeup. Although I can't do a proper smoky eye, I finally know some eye makeup basics. All it took was a ton of practice. No big deal. Along the way, I have learned a bunch of easy tricks that have helped elevate my eye makeup look. Here is a list of 12 of those tricks that made a huge difference. I do #10 all the time!
