No makeup buy-Why I'm not buying makeup for at least a year, maybe more?


hey babes,

How’s it going? So I was rifling through my case of makeup (yes, I have an entire case, slightly embarrassing but whatevs) and realized that I had way too much makeup. Which prompted me to take on a challenge to a no buy.

If you haven’t heard of a no-buy you’re probably wondering, what the heck is it? A no-buy is when you don’t buy anything that you tend to collect a lot for a period of time, usually for an extended period of time.

For me, I realized I had way too much makeup (thanks to a beauty subscription) which at the time I was enjoying but got overwhelmed pretty quickly with the amount of products I had accumulated without actually using. I found that to be incredibly wasteful so I decided to do an experiment. Can I go an entire year without buying makeup?

Part of this is also challenging myself to wearing makeup more often… the quarantine life has definitely gotten to me and I find myself not in the mood to get ready. But I think getting ready for the day, whatever that means for you, plays an important role on the outlook of your day. Whenever I get ready, I feel like I’m ready to take on the day. Don’t get me wrong, I plan on having no makeup days but I’d like to see how my mood changes overall vs not getting ready. Let’s call it an experiment within an experiment!

Have you ever done a “no-buy”? If so, how’d it go?
