live your eyeliner, breathe your lipstick, and kill for each other.

Today's post is a little bit...random. Why? I came across this picture (the one above starring Ariel) the other day and it made me smile. It is just so true. When I think about my own makeup collection, I realize just how much stuff I have. Eyeshadow palettes, singles, trios, quads, liners, blushes, highlights, mascaras, primers, and everything else imaginable.

Despite this, I find myself buying more makeup, testing out new products, and lusting after products from Sephora. Will enough ever be enough? Probably not. I suppose there is a thrill in creating a new makeup look. Inspiration can be found in a new eyeliner or lipstick shade. In a new palette or collection. It can get you out of a rut. It can help you feel excited. New products work to remind us of the power of makeup - and expressing our creativity.

My makeup collection should be complete. But it's not. At least not yet. I continue to find inspiration from products old and new. Are you the same? Today, I challenge you to really think about your makeup collection. What inspires you to create new makeup looks? Is it new products? Re-discovered favourites? Think it over - and share your answers.

So, I hope you like this picture - and that it made you smile!

  1. So cute and I will say this, when I was in my 20's I couldn't have enough makeup, but now that I am in my mid 30's, less is so much more and makes me look younger, so one day you will not have so much make up and will save money. Eventually, it's all about the eyebrows, a bit of eyeliner, great mascara and some nude lips and you are all set and a hint of blush if you wish. LOL! :)
