Words of Wisdom on Makeup Collecting

This is your come to Jesus MOMENT: You dont need every shade...

I know this is a touchy subject in the online beauty community, but the truth is.... you dont need every shade of that brand of lipstick lipstick you like just because you like the formula or the packaging is cute.

Whew now that i got that of my chest lets begin, shall we? Ok there are a few things to remember when you set the world ablaze makeup shopping...

1. There are hundreds of limited edition collections released every year. You WILL miss a few, hopefully many. It will not be the end of the world. Here is the thing behind larger companies releasing tons upon tons, and stacks and stacks, of these LE collections, (here it comes are you ready? this is going to change the way you feel about LE collections, are you sitting down?) its a marketing tool to stay relevant. I know I know that was a hard one to take in but just breath through your nose and we'll get through this together. 

Behold: my makeup collection from 4 years ago....

2. There is an art to "Makeup Collecting" the most important (2nd most obvs) thing to remember is that if your goal is to acquire a huge amount of makeup, just heaps and heaps, youll never really be happy with what you have. Not only will it never be enough, youll never feel like you have the right items you need to complete your look. Its not about getting every color, of every release. Its more about getting the items that give you the chills, that you cant live without.

3. That being said, #yolo yo. If there is something out there that if you skip on you will loose sleep, become socially awkward, develop a hysterical herpes case.... BUY it. Its just makeup, dont let something like the "big decision" to purchase a lipstick give you a stress induced case of conjunctivitis (possibly not a real disease).

4. The #yolo movement, does have one caveat when it concerns makeup (and so much more really) dont go into debt, for makeup. Please pay your bills, the mortgage the cell phone, your babys lunch room fees, before you #yolo some new makeupZ.

5. Its just makeup, something bigger better shiner and newer will always be around the bend, so if you missed out on something dont worry there's always right around the corner to set your little hearts a fluttering.

And Finally my makeup collection from 2 years ago.....

And FINALLY its just makeup, I know I like to treat it like its the second coming,  its not that serious. Makeup can bring a lot of joy into your life, provide employment, and help you look cute, but.... You cant airbrush yourself into being a Decent Human Being.
