How much Makeup do you really need?
I see so many haul posts everywhere and I’m just left wondering- how much makeup do you really need??
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not being judgmental. When urbantouch and other makeup shopping sites were launched, I went mad! It seemed like I was getting couriers everyday. But then I realized I was hoarding makeup and I could not possibly use all of it.
So where do you draw the line? Here are some tips:
1) Do you really need it?
Ask yourself this question every time your hands reach out for that add to cart button. Do you really need another black eyeliner? Or another red lipstick? You want it, but do you need it?
2) What works for me, may not work for you:
Okay, so we all lovee beauty blogs and reviews, but you need to understand that every product may not be perfect for you! My HG may just break you out! Don’t go and buy a product just because a review gave it 5 stars.
3) Stop buying dupes!
You know that red nail paint you have? The one from Maybelline. And the one from Colorbar? Oh and the one from Sally Hansen. Well, they look pretty much the same on your hands :-/
Refrain from buying similar things! 10 red nail paints, 5 black liquid liners, 4 blue eyeshadows!! No! Do some research. Buy the best red nail paint or the blue eyeshadow which looks the prettiest! Not all of them! You may also refer to dupe lists which are available on beauty blogs like Temptalia.
Lots of bloggers are going for shopping bans these days. This is a great way to stop buying stuff, and instead use whatever you have.
If you guys have any other tips, I’ll be happy to add them to this list. I hope this was helpful for some of my shopaholic readers 😉
