Life as a makeup addict!

Posted by makeupforbree on August 5, 2009

So if you’re following my blog, you might also have the same addiction as me…MAKEUP. It was really strange how this came about. I mean, I have always liked makeup but I never really understood it or tried different brands. I was a drugstore makeup purchaser ONLY for basically my entire life. I accidentally came upon the world of makeup channels on YouTube about a year ago. The first YouTuber I was lucky enough to find was TiffanyD. Now if any of you have watched her videos you know how amazing she is. I immediately became addicted! Then of course my interest grew and I have since found several other YouTubers that I absolutely adore.

So, what is it about makeup that just makes you feel so good after you come home with a good haul?  I promise you nothing makes me feel better or puts me in a better mood than taking a trip to Ulta. And to be totally honest, I dont even wear makeup every single day. There is some frustration with my makeup obsession though. First of all, it takes a lot of money to enable this addiction. Secondly, for some reason the one line of makeup that I really want to know better (MAC) is not exactly accessable to me. I am not a fan of buying makeup online. I have done that too many times and end up disappointed. I definitely believe you need to play with it, swatch it, and ask for help from store professionsals. While in Mexico this past June, I had the pleasure of visiting a store that carried MAC products, but let me tell you I was OVERWHELMED. It was my first time seeing it all in person and the store was crowded. Then the salesman had no understanding of personal space and he was kinda pushy. I had to get the heck outta there! So sadly, I left without purchasing one single item.

Anyway, I will have to say that I have discovered some of the most amazing products through my love of makeup and YouTube. I have also found some pretty amazing people and a new hobby that I love.
