    3. And verbally praising your handiwork as you do it, just to give yourself some well-deserved encouragement.

    5. Asking for a straw with every beverage.

    Not because you prefer it, but because it'll preserve your lippy.

    6. Or refusing to drink at all, simply because of your pout.

    7. Compulsively buying products you already have a ton of.

    8. Being able to spot a lip colour just by looking at it.

    It's a gift.

    9. Marking the end of the day with the very moment you take your makeup off.


    Even if it's only 6pm in the evening.

    10. Or keeping your makeup on for no reason other than the fact it looks fabulous.

    11. Saying a silent prayer before doing your eyeliner, just in case.

    You need all the help you can get.

    12. Leaving a makeup store with battle scars.

    Unless you're a pro at preventing makeup stains.

    16. Thinking about how you would fix someone else's makeup.

    17. Using random objects to fix some part of your makeup.

    Anything can be blotting paper or an eyeliner sharpener if you try hard enough.

    18. Striking up conversation with someone, purely based on their makeup.
