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.
