11 Things You Know To Be True When You're The 'Makeup Guru' Friend

Makeup is one of the best parts of getting ready. You get yourself from a solid 4 to a definite 7.5 in a matter of minutes. It’s a time when you can socialize with your friends and sing along to some of your favorite jams before heading out to whatever you’re off to next.

If you’re the “makeup guru” of your friend group, you probably agree with me. At the same time, there are so many nuances that pop up when it comes to being the “know it all” of getting ready. If you’re the makeup guru of your friend group, you probably agree with these 11 things.

1. Your friends almost always ask you to do their makeup for the night

You really enjoy doing their makeup, but at the same time, you’ve got to get ready too.

2. If you don’t have time, they’ll settle for just the eyeshadow or a nice contour

If you must...

3. Every time they go to Sephora or Ulta, they invite you to tag along

You’re honored. Your bank account is not.

4. For every birthday, they get you some sort of makeup product

Thank goodness they understand you.

5. Whenever you’re not around, they ask you for makeup advice

What products should I get with my Sephora gift card? Does a red lip look good with this outfit?

6. You get lots of compliments on your makeup

Your friends really know how to gas you up.

7. When you compliment your friends on their makeup, they’re honored

But really, your friends are beautiful either way.

8. You sometimes worry about running out of makeup

You have so much that TBH you probably couldn’t run out of makeup, but you worry sometimes because you love your products too much.

9. You wash your makeup brushes more than usual

You’ve got to keep your skin clear when your brushes have touched everyone else’s skin.

10. You offer your friends unsolicited makeup advice

You regret it later, but you really just want the best for them.

11. You high-key love that they know how much you enjoy makeup

#Blessed to be here, ladies and gentlemen.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
