Red lips and glitter (always glitter)

Fun fact: I’m a makeup junkie. I always see these people doing their declutters and living more minimally on YouTube and I think, “I want that!” but then I see a new makeup release, or a new gorgeous red lip shade, or God forbid Fenty Beauty releases something new and I die a little. I NEED it. Some deep part of me just won’t be satisfied until I own it. I’m very proud of my makeup collection as of this moment but I also realize it may be too much. (Maybe…)

I scour Ulta, CVS, and Sephora looking at all the sparkly new items and salivate over them. It’s a rush. A high. A promise that I’ll be more beautiful when I buy the product. I peruse Instagram and YouTube watching reviews, comparisons, and tutorials. My biggest weakness is adorable packaging and lipstick. I own a ridiculous amount of lipstick. Especially reds. Something about a red lip just makes me feel so powerful and in control.

As much as I want to reduce my amount of makeup I own, part of me wonders if it would even be worth it? Will I just end up filling my stores back up with more? Probably. For now I’ll just add some glitter to my eyes, put on that red lip, and seize this Monday.

Happy Monday!
