Wearing makeup is a form of expression, it is not a form of pleasing anyone but ourselves. Makeup allows you to express your self day to day. You’re feeling happy? Wear a brighter eye shadow or lip color. Your’e feeling little dull? Wear darker colors to show how you’re feeling. Many women prefer to stay away from makeup and thats perfectly fine, but for those of us who love makeup, here are a few struggles you will understand.

Makeup is amazing but it tends to get EVERYWHERE. If you’re not careful enough it’s going to end up on your collar, the hem of your shirt, the back of your shirt, and somehow even on your jeans.

Your makeup collection is HUGE. And yet you can never get away from using the same products. You may own a good 30 lipsticks but you only use 2 or 3 on a regular basis.

You HAVE to wakeup EARLY. Without a good 30 min to apply your makeup you are DOOMED. Plus you need wiggle room for any mistakes because looking FLAWLESS is important.

Yet there are always days when you oversleep and are forced to go natural. Going natural means you feel totally naked.

The day you go with out makeup, everyone tells you “you look tired.” Um, Did I ask you?

Walking into a makeup store means you just blew your entire pay check.

    Swatches on your arms or hands are totally normal to you and you see them as a type of art form.

      Lighting is your worst ENEMY. If you do your makeup in the wrong lighting, you will end up looking HORRENDOUS.

        Your soul dies a little every time one of your powder products falls or breaks apart into little pieces.

          When your online attempting to be productive and end up on youtube watching makeup tutorials you may never be able to replicate.

            But regardless of all the struggles, makeup is a great part of our lives and we wouldn't change our makeup addiction for anything.

            As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

            It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

            What many people forget is that there is no Christmas without Christ. Not only is this a time to spend with your family and loved ones, it is a time to reflect on the blessings we have gotten from Jesus. After all, it is His birthday.

            Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
