I love makeup.
And I wanted to share a few facts about me
as a makeup user.
1. There's more days in the week when I'm not wearing makeup.
I like myself without makeup just as much as with it.
I don't want to waste time to do makeup for just working at home. Or going to a boring class.
I've been wondering if I should post more pics of me without makeup..?
I just love to take outfit pics whenever I'm dolled up ^ - ^
because I love doing a fun makeup look... but yeah... maybe some no makeup outfits too?
2. I don't own or use any kind of foundation products.
It disgusts me nowadays. I think it looks ugly on me.
Stopping using foundation (daily) about 3 years ago has improved my skin so much.
I used to pick my skin and it was easy to keep on doing because I could always hide it under the irl photoshop layers.
3. I haven't been using mascara in a year +
Just because I haven't found a good, waterproof and not super expensive cruelty free vegan mascara.
But I've been feeling like using it again lately.
I just haven't bought one :)
I'm super happy about this experience.
Going cruelty free has taught me to be more minimalistic.
I don't have to own everything.
I'm happy with what I have now :)
4. I don't own an eyeliner
But I use (matte) liquid lipsticks as my eyeliner.
They are much more fun, as easy to use, they stay on better
and less products = less waste on Earth ;)
I also don't own eyebrow pens etc
5. I take my makeup off with coconut oil
and makeup wipes.
I use coconut oil on everything so... Money saved :D
6. I'm happiest when my makeup look consists of: highlighter, glitter, fake freckles and blush.
Loads of everything above.
7. I'm not afraid of messy makeup
Especially lipstick looks so cute after eating or kissing.
I think it looks so natural that it's charming :)
And sleeping with your makeup is a big no no but I think eyeliner looks cute after a lil nap ;)
8. I can't use false lashes
9. When I'm lazy but want to wear some makeup I just put on dark lipstick
I think it is such a huge distraction ;) and it looks cute ofc!
10. I use lip stain as eyebrow gel and blush
and shimmering eyeshadows as coloured highlighters :)
11. I hardly ever need to buy new makeup products
Because I use cruelty free products and live in Finland
I've "had to" stop myself from buying many things.
When in doubt (is this cruelty free) -I leave it.
Makes me feel powerful and happiest!
my lush highlighter lasts over a year and I'll never run out of eyeshadows with 2 palettes...
and I'm not into trends and collecting makeup.
I hope you might find this inspiring
or maybe you just learned something new about me :)
Be your own makeup(less) guru!
