We spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours trying to perfect the “cat eye” or the “date night” look that we found on youtube. We don’t leave the house without applying coats and coats of mascara or covering up that breakout on our nose, just for it to be halfway down our face by the end of the night. But somehow it always does. Can we just nationally ban makeup so no girl has to feel bad about not looking as put together as the next?
Can we go back to the time where crayons were $5 and 64 of them came in a box with a sharpener? Like who has the money to drop $65 on “highlighting powder”… Like what does that even do?
9) Raccoon Eyes
Yeah, we’ve all been there. You go out then come home too tired/drunk/out of it to take off your makeup and wake up with all of it under your eyes, making you look like you haven’t slept in weeks.
Waterproof means Water, Soap, AND eye makeup remover proof. You can scrub all you want, it takes a lot more than that. By the time you get all of your makeup out, you’ve accidentally pulled out half your lashes on each eye….
7) Turns Clothes Colors
Every color isn’t safe around makeup. Black shirt? Spilled powder on it. White shirt? Got foundation on it when you were putting it on. Blue shirt? You sneezed and somehow got mascara all over it. Yeah, we don’t know how it always happens either….
6) Never Matches
It’s like you have to buy a new foundation every month. You need one for Summer when you’re the tannest. You need one for September to October when you’re still kinda tan but not too tan. Then you need one for November to February when you’re paler than Casper, then one from March to June when you’re trying to build your color back up….. And who has space for 4 bottles of foundation?!
Guys have it so easy. They wake up, throw on the first shirt they see, brush their teeth and they’re ready for the day. But girls on the other hand, it’s a process. They don’t understand all the time that goes into turning us from a zombie to a decent looking human being…. So next time your man yell at you because you’re late to dinner, tell him to cut you a break. It’s a struggle being a girl… And no, he will never be able to understand any of it….
30) The struggle of putting on mascara
29) Pulling out half your eyelashes while using an eyelash curler
28) Looking like a raccoon after you take off your makeup
27) Wanting abs and a cheeseburger at the same time
26) Periods….. No explanation needed.
25) Untangling your hair after a shower, or swimming, or having it up in a bun, or being outside on a windy day, or just anything in general for that matter
24) Having a closet overflowing with clothes but still always needing more
23) Ripping your favorite lace thong that costs $12.50… Thanks Victorias Secret
22) Having expensive taste…. in everything.
21) Always being expected to know how to cook like a professional chef
As an extreme girly girl, I love to do my makeup. My heart yearns for all of the expensive products from high-end makeup stores like Sephora and ULTA, but my wallet keeps telling me no. Having expensive taste on a college student’s budget is tough, but it has helped me find high quality makeup products that won’t break the bank.
