First World Problems for Makeup Wearers

As Rumpelstiltskin once said, “Magic always comes with a price.” The same goes for makeup, but not just the price you pay for purchase. Makeup wearers everywhere are burdened daily with many first world problems. I’ve compiled a list so we can come together and support one another. Let us unite.

Getting lipstick on your straws, glasses, mugs, cutlery when eating or drinking

problem

problems

A tea drinker’s nightmare is moisturising lipstick; it transfers like my money does out of my bank account (aka. more lipstick on mug than lips).

Having too many mascaras open at once

problem


The struggle of brush washing day (and forgetting to do your makeup before washing all of your makeup brushes)
