Hi, I’m Robyn and I’m a complete make-up addict. I’m forever spending money on eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks, and having a dolled up face makes me feel so much more confident. I don’t quite like it as much as clothes… but it’s up there.
The only issue is… I really HATE wearing make-up. Literally, I despise it. I don’t know if I’m the only person that feels this, but I love how make-up makes me look and hate how it feels to wear. Strange right?
Firstly, it feels disgusting.
You know when you scratch your face (*cough* pick your spots) and you get foundation all over your fingers? Ugh. Having a full face of make-up makes me feel like I’ve got a layer of dirt on me and I literally can’t stand it.
Having to up-keep it is a hassle
It’s only 11.30am and you’ve already got to touch up your lipstick. So much effort. I literally spend the whole day checking my face in the mirror to check I’m not shiny.
Also, ‘just going to powder my nose’ IS NOT a thing. More like ‘just going to powder my nose and redo my entire face’.
Applying it takes forever
There are now about 659 steps to applying make-up these days – contouring AND fleeky eyebrows?! CMON. I want more time in bed.
Taking it off takes even longer
I’ll set the scene: you’re in bed all comfy and warm and BAM, you realise you haven’t taken off your make-up. 300 make-up wipes later and you’re now sore-faced, cold and uncomfortable.
It costs a bomb
A really expensive gold-plated bomb covered in glitter. That sh*t is expensive – and for some reason I always buy expensive make-up because it ‘stays longer’… wrong.
It usually looks crap anyway
I’m not a make-up artist and I’m so pale that there’s never a foundation light enough for me. I sport some kind of orange patchy look because foundation clings to all of my dry skin. Not to forget about blinking with newly put-on mascara, sigh.
Foundation gets EVERYWHERE
Why does this happen?! I’m surprised I have any foundation to take off at the end of the day because most of it ends up on my clothes or on my phone.
Not being able to cry all day
Sometimes I just need a good cry (either that or I saw a cute video of a puppy on Facebook and I want to weep) but NO – eyeliner will run.
It definitely gives me more spots
The worst cycle in the world… wearing make-up because you’ve got spots, but wearing make-up gives you more spots. Screw you science.
Making sure you get even eyeliner and eyebrows is so difficult – one will always be better than the other. ‘They aren’t twins, they’re sisters’ – yeah, too friggin right.
No kissing – ever
Nothing like an adorable little smooch and leaving your other half with pink lips and a powdery face, sorry Jimmy!
Having to clean brushes
Ew. The worlds most gross and unenjoyable task. Someone please invent self-cleaning make-up brushes.
Trying not to smudge your lipstick all day
I want to eat. I want to eat lots of food and I want to be able to get ketchup down my chin – but lipstick must stay in tact.
Sorry about the minor rant. But to be honest, I’m starting to think no make-up is a better option.
LOL JK – there’s no way I’m displaying my face to you all with no make-up on. But, I still hate it.
What do we all think about make-up? Do you hate wearing it?
Any tips to make me like it more would be fab also!
