5 Reasons I Love Makeup

reasons to love makeup

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!

Valentine’s Day is on the way!

So what do you want?

Flowers? Chocolate? Jewelry?

Or are you a non-traditional kinda girl or guy and perhaps you want MAKEUP!

Something along the lines of Too Faced’s cutesy Ultimate Chocolate Box? Or perhaps some expensive eyeshadow palette you have on your eye?

Does your husband, wife, girlfriend, or boyfriend indulge your makeup junkie ways and gift you with makeup Valentine’s Day gifts?

Do You Apply Foundation All Over Your Face?

Curious minds, do you apply foundation all over your face? Whenever I’m watching a youTube guru prep his or her face and they start blending foundation all over their face, onto their forehead, etc…I literally cringe. It’s not how I personally do it. Although it’s of course, depending on the coverage you personally need but the idea of foundation on my forehead seriously makes me break out into hives! I think I’d like be an oily mess if I applied liquid foundation or BB Cream on my forehead.

I typically don’t apply foundation all over my face, do you?


Do You Buy Backup Makeup?

You know the evil allure of limited edition makeup and beauty that makes you want to buy a backup or two or three? I know that feeling well. You put limited edition on anything be it makeup (or something else entirely) and suddenly my evil hoarding ways come out to play!

Unfortunately in recent years I think “limited edition” has become somewhat used and abused. It’s very casually tossed around in the makeup and beauty world and most products labeled with it aren’t truly limited edition as they are either around for ages or they get repromoted somehow.

If you like something, like say a lipstick shade that does launch with some limited edition MAC Collection I think you’ll be compelled to what to grab a backup. Because really if that gorgeous lipstick makes you feel and look amazing who wouldn’t want a back up?
