This year I have hauled a LOT of makeup, checked off so many things from my wishlist and built a collection I am pretty proud of. However I didn’t think I would be saying ‘I have enough makeup now’ for a while. This probably sounds ridiculous to those of you who aren’t really into beauty, but for a bblogger it’s not uncommon.
I’ve spent the week preparing for Uni = clearing out my room. Part of that has meant dealing with my dressing table which has been covered in makeup, due to a lot of wedding and evening events as of late. Whilst putting everything away and shopping my stash, I’ve come to realise that I am so so happy with my makeup collection now! Okay so I still have a sticky note open with a list of things I’d like to trial in the future, but it’s nothing urgent. I honestly can’t think of anything I really want, which in itself is a great feeling, so I’ve decided to set myself a challenge.
I’m not going to call it a makeup ban, purely because I know I’m not so great at sticking to those. It’s just a rather large challenge...are you ready to hear what exactly that is? I’m going to try and refrain from buying any makeup until my 21st birthday. Which is approximately 8 months away. *Gulps*. Now I have allowed myself a small budget for when the x-mas sales begin, but aside from that I am just going to be using my existing makeup and hopefully hitting pan on a lot of items. Instead of hauls, there should be empties and of course a tonne of reviews because when you aren’t buying more, you have a lot of time to actually use what you own y’know? 8 months will literally be the longest time I have ever gone without buying makeup since I was like 15, so of course I will most likely be treating myself to another Sephora haul for my 21st but ONLY if I complete my challenge.
Please wish me luck! I’m sure you’ll be getting detailed monthly updates with how I’m getting on ^_^ I’m feeling a little nervous but a lot more excited to face this challenge head on - especially as recently I’ve been working hard on a budget and being more responsible with money *feels like a responsible adult*.
How long have you gone without buying makeup?
