Before, you were all about buying blush, bronzers, and tons of lip gloss! Now, you want products that keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

2. Washing your face after going out becomes important.

You don't go out nearly as much, but before counting ANY sheep when you do, your face must be clean and fresh.

3. You find out that, when it comes to eye makeup, less is more.

You switch from over-the-top eye makeup to a more natural look (like a soft, sparkling nude shadow) since you want your eyes to shine on their own.

4. You notice eating fewer processed foods really does make your skin look better.

All of the sudden, you drink veggie smoothies as if it were your job. You're all about that glowing skin life.

5. You decide you CAN run errands on the weekend without makeup on.

Because no one is going to judge you. And if they do, you no longer care.

6. You begin to treat your hair right. Fewer dyes, more conditioning.

7. And instead of trying to force your hair into a style, you sort of figure out what it naturally does and then work with that.

NOTHING. *Chugs a gallon of water*

You have no shame in getting your tried-and-true drugstore buys. Though you also have zero shame in spending big on the fancy things you do love.
