There are dozens and dozens and dozens of reason I love makeup but if I wrote them all out we’d end up with a bible.
So I tried to narrow it down a little and here are 5 reasons I love makeup.
Feel free to share your top 5 reasons!
Because ya know my blog….
I started Musings of a Muse on my Space of all places. Because my x-boyfriend’s dad had written this rather poetic ode to makeup….he inspired me somehow. But one of the reasons I love makeup is my blog. I really like that I have an outlet that I can share my love of makeup with everyone. Several years ago that was like two people now it’s thousands of people. Blogging to me feels like having a bunch of friends that I can sit with every single day and squeal over some new eyeshadow. It’s one of the top reasons I love makeup, the sharing aspect just thrills me!
Because I can take ordinary and make it extraordinary!
I love makeup because I can take my ordinary lashes and make them super long! I can make my boring brown eyes look big and doe-like with a little tightlining and waterlining! I can smooth a little BB Cream on my face and instantly my skin looks healthy and refreshed.
Because no one in the makeup world says no to any shade no matter how loud, bold, or outrageous!
If you wanna snap pictures of yourself in aqua eyeshadow and place it on a Reddit Makeup Addiction you’re likely going to get tons of encouragement. You rarely have people who love makeup nay saying certain shades! I love that people don’t think aqua eyeshadow is weird or wearing some outrageously long falsies is too much. Makeup lovers are usually all about encouraging each other to try the bold and not to be scared of it.
Because it makes me feel pretty!
We all have something we dislike about ourselves! I love that makeup can make me feel prettier and more confident!
Because it’s nice to look at!
I love pretty packaging, pretty colors, gorgeous shades of lipstick all in a row….! Makeup is just pretty to look at. I love switching up my vanity to display my favorite perfumes, powders, and newest blushes. Makeup is just damn nice to look at!
