If you’re a fan of makeup (let’s be honest, who isn’t?) you probably have one cosmetic item that you feel completely empty without. It may be that you can’t leave the house without filling in your eyebrows, it may be that you don’t feel complete without your iconic cat-eye eyeliner, it may be that you just have to wear foundation otherwise you feel like a potato, it may be that you can’t shine bright like a diamond without your highlighter, or it may be that you don’t feel human without putting your lippy on in the morning. Yuh-huh, lipstick is life. If you’re just as obsessed with lipstick as we are and you always wear lipstick, you will definitely be able to relate to these 7 things…
You can’t leave the house without your fave color
Every lipstick lover has one lipstick that is the holy grail above all others. It’s the perfect shade for your skin tone, it’s the perfect color to go with absolutely everything in your closet, and it just feels so darn good on your lips. Because of this, you can’t leave the house without your fave color, and all of your friends and family know to expect this color on your lips on your average day. That lipstick IS you, girl.
You have different shades of your fave color
However, having just one plum lipstick just isn’t enough for your lipstick obsession. After all, you might be changing from day-to-evening, you might be going on a date, you might have taken off your jacket, or you might just fancy a change. This gives you the opportunity to switch from deep plum to light plum, or sparkly plum to matte. The best part? There are still so many shades of your favorite color in stores across the world, which means you have room for more. Mwah-ha-ha!
You always have a compact with you
Applying lipstick is basically an art form. Yep, you know it’s true. When it comes to art, it requires dedication and time, and the right materials, which means you have to be fully prepared to reapply your masterpiece if the event occurs. Because of this, you always have a compact mirror with you, so you can get your lippy application absolutely perfect.
You always make sure your eyeshadow matches
I mean, is there any point wearing eyeshadow if you’re not going to match it with your lipstick? We think not. The best part about being an avid lipstick wearer is that you become a dab-hand at being organized. You match your lipstick to your outfit, and you match your lipstick to your eyeshadow. It’s meticulous, and it’s hard work, but it pays off when you look fly as heck.
You have a mini panic attack when you forget to put it on
If you’re feeling a little down in the dumps and stumble out of bed after a heavy night the evening before, it can be easy to look at your alarm clock, jump out of bed and scream at the wall for making you sleep in so late, and throw on the nearest clothes you can find. This mass panic doesn’t leave much time for putting lipstick on, and we can almost guarantee that you will have a mini panic attack when you realize you’re basically in the nuddy.
You feel amazing when you wear it
Wearing lipstick can genuinely take your outfit from 0 – 100 real quick – which is why we’re totally obsessed with it. This is especially true when you’re wearing a super cute outfit in all black (well, duh. What other colors are there?) and you make your outfit pop with a splash of color. You rock.
You are the best at reapplying
When you’re constantly on the go, reapplying your lipstick becomes second nature. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a bumpy road in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t matter if you’re on the train or even walking through the mall, you are the best at applying your makeup. Anywhere, anytime. You’ve got it.
If you’re the kind of person that loves to wear lipstick, we kinda love you and all of the amazing talents that you possess. You keep it up, girl.
