Let's Talk Makeup

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical. - Sophia Loren

I mentioned a couple of months ago that I wanted to shrink my makeup collection and I think I did a fairly good job. I haven't bought any makeup in seven months and it feels so good, knowing you're not wasting money on something that isn't important. I used to buy makeup because I thought it looked pretty in the packaging or because I wanted to be cool too. I obviously watched too many makeup tutorials from beauty gurus, all telling me that I needed this newest product or that magical eye shadow when in fact, I didn't need it at all.

Every makeup product in my makeup bag is something I use on an everyday basis and I'm planning on using everything up (I'll keep you updated). If I run out of concealer and I don't own any other ones, I probably will buy a new one because I use it almost every day. Thanks to my vegan lifestyle, my skin has cleared up massively and I also haven't been wearing any mascara these last couple of days and I'm probably going to continue doing so. Anyway, enough rambling, let's get straight to the point now!
Velvet Finish Concealer - Catrice
Camouflage Cream - Catrice
Bronzer - Mua
Better Than Sex Mascara - Too Faced
Eyeshadow/ Eyebrow Palette - Catrice
Prime and Fine Powder - Catrice

As you can see, I don't use a lot of products because I'm not that good at applying makeup, I haven't got the time for it either in the morning and I don't like the feeling of it on my face. Whenever I wear mascara, my eyes suddenly start itching or when I apply some concealer it somehow starts raining. Me + makeup is just not a good combination. Don't get me wrong, I sometimes really like making my face look fancy, but that's only for outfit photos or New Year's Eve, haha. I don't think there's much explaining to do about my routine as it speaks for itself.

Just remember you're beautiful, with or without makeup, and you don't have to change the way you look for anyone. I know it can be hard to accept yourself sometimes, but there's only one of you and you should be proud of who you are. Have a lovely evening!
