Well, I know I’m guilty of these beauty habits, especially the shaving part ( when I think I’ve got a smooth shave and damn it, missed a few hairs ) so are you guilty of these beauty habits…

12 Semi-Embarrassing Beauty Habits We’re (Probably) All Guilty Of
by Megan Gustashaw

~Treating every aisle at the drugstore like the beauty aisle
Vaseline to tame messy eyebrows, Visine to fight skin redness, Preparation H to de-puff tired eyes—they might make our roomies and partners do a double take, but boy, do they work.

~Shaving here, there, and everywhere…nothing is off limits including your arms, your belly, and even your face ( hey, some VIPs say it produces collagen ).

~And STILL somehow forget to shave those 3 little hairs!
around your knees, under your arms, and, yes, on your big toes. It’s a lot of surface area to cover, ya know?

~Holding on to cracked, shattered or melted makeup for aeons
There’s no shame (OK, maybe a little shame) in keeping broken blush or melted lipstick in your makeup case in a plastic bag or paper towel. It makes a huge mess, but you’re not going down without a fight.

~Giving yourself a two minute two toe pedicure
If you don’t know what that means, let’s just say it involves being in a rush, a fabulous pair of sandals, a not so fresh pedicure, and a genuine fear of the hostess with a “shoes off” policy.

~Using freebies as a mini-make over
Like giving yourself a quick lipstick change at the local beauty counter without any intention of buying the hue.

~Ignoring expiration dates
Does this bottle smell weird? If you have to ask that question, you are probably guilty of this semi-embarrassing beauty habit.

~Borrowing from the boys
His shaving cream, his deodorant, his razors, his cologne. The fact that he doesn’t put a lock on his side of the medicine cabinet make you want to borrow it even more!

~Loving these crazy beauty trends- from afar
You might enjoy reading articles about fillers, DIY finger waves and 3-D nail art, but you’ll take some apricot scrub, a high ponytail and a baby pink manicure over a new beauty trend any day.

~Sticking to the same beauty routine ( for a long, long, LONG time )
Like since high school. So you found the ideal shade of lipstick when you were 13 and you perfected the cat-eye flick at 14- you can’t help it if you were a child genius.

~If you’re using your tooth as a substitute as a nail file
It’s semi-embarrassing when it happens at home…completely, 100% traumatizing when you find yourself doing it in public. Yeesh!

~Using a bun or braid to hide uber-dirty hair
At the office meeting. When you have a dinner that evening. What possessed you not to shower that morning? It’s anyone’s guess.
