Makeup Tutorials That Don’t Really Make Sense

Hello mah ladies. Welcome to another segment of TheFabZilla chit-chat. Newbie here? In a nutshell, it’s our mid-week break from product reviews and whatnots. It’s when you and I talk like regular human beings, yanno like girlfriends discussing the season finale of The Walking Dead. In short, everything you read is unedited. Sarcasm, check. Humor, check. Smarts, check. I expect the same, so speak your gut.

For this week, let me touch-base on makeup tutorials that don’t really make sense. Now if you have done any of these tutorials, I apologize in advance! If you have followed these tutorials at one point, I apologize. If you’ve seen my jurassic (ancient) posts talking about these tutorials, I apologize; people change, so does preference. With that out of the way, grab a bag of chips or pint of Haagen Daazs ‘coz here I am saying, sorry not sorry y’all, hahaha!

1. How to Look Cute in School.

Call me old school but back then, I never really bothered about looking cute in school. Maybe because I wasn’t cute to begin with. I guess being acne-laden with coke bottles don’t make anyone cute ha? But see, you go to school to learn and not to become some bimbo! Remember this generation x y z, makeup may give you confidence but education gives you power. While I applaud the creativity of our present-day tweens, I cannot for the life of me understand tarantula lashes and heavily-lined eyes. More, they call themselves makeup gurus….. shoot! goose bumps here.

2.  Makeup When You’re Swimming

I said it before and I will shamelessly say it again, unless you are a member of the Aqualilies or you do synchronized swimming entertainment for a living, you don’t need to paint your face with a shitload of crap. I’m not kidding, I’ve seen way too many videos piling on makeup after makeup. Contouring for swimming, who the hell does that? Much as I love makeups but there’s a point you have to go barefaced. Sunscreen and tinted lip balm with SPF are probably enough woman!

3. Get Ready With Me Videos, Eleventy Eight Bajillion Times

I like watching GRWM (get ready with me) video, I know you do too. Fact is, it gives me ideas what others are using on a daily basis. But can I ask a little favor? please don’t bombard me with GRWM every freakin’ time. It’s akin to you posting your OOTD in every occasion which IDGAF. Get ready with me (going to Walmart), Get ready with me (going to the beach), Get ready with me (watching a movie), Get ready with me (going to Starbucks). Girl, are you kidding me? Unless you are showing different makeup technique for every occasion you are attending, then I don’t need to see the same old cat eyes, plastic-ky lips and curly hair you’ve been doing over and over. 

4. Hair Tutorial: Messy bun

If you know how to ties shoe laces, then you know how to do messy bun. Enough said. No, seriously, it’s called messy bun for nothing. Simply put, tie your hair whichever way you want. The messier, the sexier…

Had a good laugh? it’s your turn. What makeup tutorials you don’t really like?

    OMG I'm so with you! why in the hell would I wear makeup to the pool or beach? And the messy bun…it's not rocket science, people.

      Isn't that the craziest thing to do? Girl must be suffering from hallucination thinking that the beach is a club, haha!

  2. April 9, 2014 / 1:24 pm

    I don't need a tutorial for messy hair. Just sayin!

  3. April 9, 2014 / 1:47 pm

    So I think it's ABSURD that anyone would pile on makeup to go swimming!! OMG I laughed out loud when I saw your meme and read that part. You're keeping it real as always <3

    • April 10, 2014 / 8:13 am

      Haha! There are plenty in YouTube, you won't believe it. Thanks my friend

  4. April 9, 2014 / 2:07 pm

    These are hilarious but who does a "makeup when you go swimming video" really??? Unless you are in the Olympics competing, nobody cares what you wear when you are out for a swim.

    • April 10, 2014 / 8:14 am

      LOL! There are plenty out there. Full-blown makeup ala beauty pageant contestant

    I must be seriously late to the party, I never even knew these existed. But then, I've spent the last 6 years as a chef. You could say makeup wasn't really part of my day. Having seen these, gonna have to agree with you.

  8. April 9, 2014 / 4:02 pm

    Hilarious and I'm so with you on these! Speaking of… I did a messy bun for work today – good thing I didn't have to consult a video to figure it out

    • April 10, 2014 / 10:57 pm

      Lol! I always wear messy bun. One time a female rep rudely asked me, why is your hair messed up? I told her straight that's why it's called messy bun!!!

  9. April 9, 2014 / 4:03 pm

    Oh m gosh, I seriously love you! You are beyond hilarious!!! I couldn't agree with you more girl!

    • April 10, 2014 / 10:58 pm

      LOL! I love you more because you put up with my sarcasm

  10. April 9, 2014 / 8:03 pm

    HAHA this is hilarious!

  11. April 10, 2014 / 12:08 am

    Cute post and yes, agreed these types of things are done to death

    • April 12, 2014 / 7:52 am

      yep, I know I'm not alone thinking about these silliness…

  12. April 10, 2014 / 1:29 am

    ROFL you had me at the Gollum meme girl!

  13. April 10, 2014 / 3:06 am

    HAHAHAH! Love it! I actually love watching GRWM videos but I agree… It needs to be different every time.

  14. April 10, 2014 / 3:52 am

    I need a GRWM video for Target, gurrrl. You know you got to werk it when you go to Tar-jay. No 'juicy' sweatpants or bare faces, allowed!

    • April 10, 2014 / 11:00 pm

      LOL , love the ASS component, haha! have a great weekend Sharon

  16. April 10, 2014 / 9:53 pm

    Hilarious, love it. My pet peeve is the ninety bajillion "makeup for glasses" tutorials. Here's how you wear makeup with glasses: 1. apply makeup. 2. wear glasses. Done.

    • April 10, 2014 / 10:59 pm

      LOL! I totally forgot that makeup for glasses! So many tutorials when I'm fact, like you said, just wear makeup and your glasses, haha!

  17. April 13, 2014 / 11:42 am

    Oh Kath you are too funny!!!!! I am in complete agreement with you, there was one blogger that I unsubscribed to because she would have posts on every new item in her house… oh look at my new lampshade, rug etc… the funniest was right down to her box of friggin' kleenex… frankly who gives a rat's ass on what your box of kleenex looks like and how well it harmonizes the room…. get real!!! Just sooooo narcissistic….. anyhow that is my vent for today! Hugs, xoxoxo PS keep the laughs coming!!!

    • April 14, 2014 / 6:29 am

      hahaha, you cracked me up w/ your comment too. I know what you mean. I think bottom line is, there is a limit to everything. *does the shaka*

  18. April 13, 2014 / 7:37 pm

    Hahaha I can't stop laugh at your post and the comments. Don't forget date nights…lol

    • April 14, 2014 / 6:29 am
