Falling Out of Love With Makeup

I think most girls go through the phase of being obsessed with makeup collecting and buying all the time because you want to keep on top of all the trends which then ends up with you having too many foundations that one face could possibly need! I know I definitely went through that phase when I was in my late teens, when I’d constantly be experimenting and creating looks for different occasions.  What I’ve noticed recently though, is that I have fallen out of love with makeup.

I don’t enjoy spending hours on my makeup or even how much time it takes to do my makeup, tends to annoy me. I used to love spending an hour doing my makeup, I always remember when I was a teenager, running upstairs whenever I bought new makeup as I wanted to try it out straight away. Now though, to be honest, I can’t remember the last time I even bought any new makeup. The only makeup I’ve bought recently is just repurchasing makeup that I know I love!


I know that this is just a phase but it’s one that has been going on for the last year or so now, maybe it’s that I’m a college student and I don’t have the time or energy to be buying new makeup and trying it out. I still love the idea of makeup and finding new makeup but I don’t have the motivation to actually buy it and try it myself. Recently I have found myself buying more and more clothes and fashionable items rather than beauty items. Over the last two years I have gotten really into fashion and finding my own style that I really like and expanding my wardrobe in doing so.

I don’t know if that’s where my interests will continue to be for the future but I’m hoping that I’ll find my love for makeup again! Maybe I’m just waiting for that certain product to wow me to find my love for it again. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet and I will continue to buy more and more fashion and decor items instead.

Maybe its all part in parcel of growing up and finding your true interests and passions. Who knows, only time will tell! I’d love to know if any of you have gone through this phase of falling out of love with makeup, or if you fell out of love with something else, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. I hope you guys found this post interesting, I don’t really know what the purpose of it was but maybe just to update you guys on how I’ve been feeling recently. I have always had this blog about beauty but in the recent months, I have changed it over to incorporate a bit more lifestyle, as they are some of my favourite posts to read and write now. See you in my next post.

Thank you for reading,
