You like watching the makeup vids as well don't you ? Ems can sit and watch them all night . I got her one set for Christmas that nearly caused hysteria because only so many got made and it took her hours to finally get it ( I can't remember who it is now , it was two people )

Oh ya! I LOVE make up videos. Last year I spent $1200 on make up 😱

 

And $300 this month and it is only the 8th!

I like watching makeup tutorials too sometimes. I can never get a winged eye down pat!

 

I find most of the makeup vloggers/bloggers are ridiculously beautiful on purpose and are paid to promote many make-up brands. Oy vey!

 

Do you like any drug store brands?

Noooo, you don't need make up you're beautiful without, plus after 6 months open you have to chuck stuff away, so even if you only use once, waste of money. Ps send it me Haha I want to feel pretty 🤣

 

Awww thanks for the compliment but now I am just old. 😬

What do you tell yourself when you see a makeup product in the store or online? Do you tell yourself you "need" this product?

 

Substitute "need" with "want" in your mind.

 

Side note, do you feel a kind of rush of excitement when you're at the store or getting out your debit card to make an online purchase?

I know they are totally wants. I think it comes from complicated grief and loss starting from infancy on up. Trying to feel “ worthy” and beautiful and something to be appreciated. Even with therapy about 5 years worth since my teen years there are things I haven’t grieved because I had no idea they were a loss, ya know?

 

I am not sure I will ever work through everything. And I guess I was spoiled as well. My very young childhood I was dirt poor and then my mom and first step dad spoiled me to make up for many things, but things don’t replace heart break and abuse.

 

A coping mechanism?
