Things people who love make up don’t want to hear

We’re probably not the only ones who can admit that we don’t mind indulging in some serious make up time every now and then. Who hasn’t devoted a solid 15 minutes nailing that perfect winged eyeliner before a big night out?

So, it kind of gets on our nerves when some people just can’t help but comment on our dedication to all things beauty product related. The cheek! We rounded up some of the one-liners we could really do with not hearing again any time soon.

“How long does it take you to get ready though?”


“You spent how much on that new Naked palette?”

“All those shades of red lipstick look the same.”

“I prefer a no makeup look.”

“Does anyone even wear purple eyeshadow?”

“What’s a beauty blogger anyway?”
