You use whatever you can find to make the perfect makeup shots, whether it is your floor, your carpet, your mom or your cat, you need to take a picture and upload it to instagram right away.
YOU SPEND A FORTUNE
Makeup addiction is an expensive addiction, sometimes even more expensive than gambling, but it doesn't matter, you need to have the latest trends, even if that implies working extra shifts or selling your family.
WHITE CLOTHES ARE FORBIDDEN
You can't even think of using white tops or dresses because they always end up with a makeup stain. Half of your face gets imprinted in the fabric, like the holy shroud.
ALSO FOR HIM
This is how your face looks like when you hug him and then you realize that your entire face is imprinted on his shirt and you don't want him to notice but you know he will eventually.
YOU TAKE YOUR TIME
You have no consideration for other people's time when you are buying makeup. If you say "Going to Sephora, be right back", you should be honest and clarify that "be right back" means "I'll be here in three hours"
YOU ARE MISUNDERSTOOD
… Or at least you think you are. Especially when people tells you "Make it easy: Buy the same foundation as last time" How on earth? That was a whole other season, you moron.
You made the Kylie Jenner Lips Challenge when it was trending, of course. Because every makeup addict is also a Kardashians addict, even if that implies putting your face in serious risk.
IT TAKES FOREVER
So your boyfriend says "I'm outside your house" and you are like… that. Because the lack of other's time consideration also applies in this case. Let him wait outside, he will be fine.
ALL YOUR BRUSHES ARE DIRTY
Wait, you really need to clean your makeup brushes? Really? I use a towel. Or my shirt. Or my sink, or myself. There's no time for cleaning up brushes, especially when you use it everyday.
The gunk in your eyelash curler is so so old it is presenting it retirement papers tomorrow morning. How much does that thing cost? just change it, woman, you won't die.
THE SINK IS YOURS
You own the sink. You have the rights to do it and you will do it. But you need to borrow another sink if you need to do regular stuff like brushing your teeths.
You dropped a little glitter a few years ago and now everything you own and will own in your entire life, and even the things your grandchildren will own are and will be glittery.
You are always trying to give people makeovers. And when they say that they don't want one, you give it to whatever is around you, like your cat. Yes, I know what you did to that poor kitten.
Everytime this happens a deep silence invades the earth and everyone around you disappears. There's a mix of anger and sadness that takes over you, and you just want to scream.
You are aware of all the risks that implies sleeping with your makeup on, but you still do it anyway, because you are tired or because your contouring is flawless.
A TRAIL OF LIPSTICK
You leave a trail of lipstick wherever you go, like a modern day Hansel and Gretel. Maybe you are marking your territory, but let me say that the dishwasher at the restaurant hates you.
MAKEUP UNDER YOUR NAILS
You always have makeup under your nails. It is gross and annoying, and there's no way you can take it out, even after washing your hands several times. Luckily, you always have your nails polished.
FAKE EYELASH ADDICTION
You forgot what it feels like to have your natural eyelashes without any glue or fake shit on. There's no way you are leaving your house without your fake eyelashes, even if it means glueing a fly by accident.
You know what happens when your makeup powder falls in the sink and gets mixed with water: Living hell. You won't be able to take that stain off, just move out.
COVERED IN THEMSELVES
All of your makeup products are covered in themselves, creating a veil of makeup that will never disappear. You sometimes need to take off a dry crust to use them.
YOU WORKOUT WITH YOUR MAKEUP ON
You know that you will end up looking like a complete mess, but there's no way you can remember to take off your makeup before working out. You got used to it.
You had a busy day. You went to school, to work, to visit your parents and to a date. And then, when you got home and saw yourself in the mirror, you noticed it: Your clothes were covered in powder. Just throw that sweater out.
YOUR BRUSHES ARE A MESS
You use the same brush over and over again (sometimes even not knowing the difference between one brush and another) until it falls apart and then… you continue using it.
MAKEUP IS THE ANSWER
You don't have a pen? Use a lipstick. Not sleeping well? Try concealer. Can't find a job and your landlord is threatening to kill you? Use your savings to buy makeup to make you feel better.
YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL
You've watched so many Youtube tutorials and scrolled so many Pinterest hacks and tricks that you think you know everything. You spend hours working on your face without much success but you feel like you can judge.
YOU LIVE FOR SAMPLES
You would go down the sewer if Pennywise the Clown tells you that he has some samples of expensive makeup. You would even kill your family to get those samples.
You are too lazy to redo your nail polish, so you just paint over it. And paint again. You have so many layers of polish on your nails that you find it difficult to grab things.
YOUR BEAUTY BLENDER IS DYING
I know, you paid a fortune for that little thing and you will use it and abuse it until it literally disintegrates between your fingers. I don't blame you, I would too.
You enjoy watching and imitating every tutorial you can find step by step, doing the exact things that girl does on camera, but the results are slightly (a lot) different.
You've learnt to do things a certain way and when you miss one step the Universe just falls apart. If you forget to do one little step, you better stay home, it's going to be a terrible night.
Sorry kids, but buying and using a new product for the first time is better than giving birth. At least your new makeup will give you nothing but joy and pleasure.
BOYS DON’T LIKE MAKEUP
This is your face when someone tells you "Boys don't like girls that wear too much makeup". Boys can like what they want, and I can do what I want. I don't live to like, you moron.
You took your boyfriend to the makeup store and showed him your favorite products but he didn't surprised you by buying them, so you left him and burned his house down.
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
Woah, Woah, Woah. Keep your hands off me, pal. Haven't you seen this piece of art? It can't be touched. You wouldn't touch the Mona Lisa even if you could, would you?
You wake up in the morning and say "I want to do something quite natural today" and a few minutes later you come out of the bathroom looking like this.
THE NEXT STEP
You get very anxious because you don't know if adding winged eyeliner will improve or break forever the look you've been working on for the last three hours. So confusing!
You have absolutely no respect for anything or anyone, and you wait till your boyfriend gets asleep to try on him the newest things you bought. Poor guy, he better run.
THIS OLD THING?
You deny having too much makeup when someone gives you a compliment, though it is obvious that you spent about four hours brushing up your face. It is a secret, ok?
You spend too many hours watching videos of random people showing shit they bought. It is like hypnosis. We don't know why we do it, but we can't stop doing it.
Makeup makes you very happy, extremely happy. But it can also make you really sad. Because products run out, or get lost, or cracked, and stupid people decide to discontinue that fabulous mascara.
You want to do the makeup diet, that means spending on makeup all the money you should spend on food. It really works but it is not healthy at all.
YOU CAN’T CHOOSE
How am I supposed to choose between these two foundations that looks almost the same but slightly different? I can't, I simply can't. And don't tell me that there's people that is dying.
Your makeup bag is your life. You can't be without it, you take it wherever you go, even if you are not allowed to. It is your friend, it is part of the family and is full of joy and pleasure.
HOW MANY NUDE PALETTES ARE TOO MANY NUDE PALETTES?
You never have too many makeup, that's not a real thing. And it may look the same to muggle eyes, but for your trained eyes every shade is completely different.
YOU ALWAYS NEED A NEW THING
You have a date tonight and you run to Sephora to buy new products because you think you don't have what you need, even when you have like seven drawers full of mascaras.
You are always paying extra attention to sales and offers, and you are even capable of quitting your job and camping outside the store just to get the best prices.
SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY
You say you are going to buy only a lipstick but you end up buying the entire store, losing your family, your job and your house and living on the street. But your makeup is on fleek.
You are extremely tired but you don't want to go to bed because your makeup is looking perfect today and you don't want to wash it out, so you stay awake all night.
COOL FOR THE SUMMER
You like to wear makeup all year long, even when the heat is unbearable and your face looks like if its melting down. Consider it a waste of product and please stop doing it.
