15 signs you might be a beauty junkie


As someone who is more than a little obsessed with beauty products, I've recently realised that I need to take the time to enjoy what I have instead of constantly yearning for something new....so there is a bit of humour/ exaggeration in this post but there is also some truth somewhere...

1. You own 10 different neutral eye shadow palettes. You know your 'normal' friends would ask exactly how many shades of brown eye shadow you need...but to you they are like your many children...it would be impossible and so unfair to choose between them.

2. You could wear a different lipstick every day for a fortnight and still have some over. I overheard someone talking at work about how they had a really nice red lippie but needed a new pink and a new nude....the thought of only owning 3 lipsticks seemed quite shocking...is this what normal people do?! haha

3. You can't wait for that new product to launch...and 'normal' people wonder how you even know these things are going to be available ahead of them being in the shops...you actually spend your time reading about these things online?!

4. You find yourself starring at people doing their makeup on public transport. You try to figure out what they're using and either approve of their technique or grit your teeth as they pile on EVEN MORE bronzer.

5. You have bought a beauty product because it had such beautiful packaging.

6. You buy ANOTHER red lipstick that everyone else would think was the same as the 10 you already have, but to you it is SO different.

7. Instead of buying less makeup because your storage is getting full, you just buy more drawers/ a bigger dressing table...and you're constantly searching pinterest for new storage solutions.

8. Beauty blogs and youtube beauty gurus are your morning news.

9. Every country you go on holiday to, you can't resist having a look at the brands available there...I mean there might be a life changing product that's impossible to get at home!

10. You bring 20 eyeshadows and 7 lipsticks for a weekend away...you never know what you're going to need after all!

11. You have bought a makeup product because of the shade name.

12. When tidying up you find beauty products that you'd forgotten you owned.

13. You carry a handbag the size of a suitcase to fit in your kit...a girl needs to be prepared for all beauty emergencies at all times!

14. For special occasions/ nights out, you plan your makeup first and build your outfit around it.

15. You CANNOT just buy 1 makeup item when there's an offer....when there's 3 for 2, what person in their right mind wouldn't buy a second item to get the third one free?! Buy one get on half price? Obviously it would be criminal to not buy a second item.

Can you think of any others?
