I was wondering, for those of you who are really into makeup and who own or are busy building up large collections...how do your family and your friends feel about it? Do you ever get grief for spending "too much money" on it, or does anyone you know not understand why you're so into it?
Are your friends all into makeup and beauty as well or are you the only one?
I'm really curious and would like to hear about how you deal with people's reactions to your interest in beauty-related stuff.
For me, I don't have any friends that are into makeup at all. I'm hoping that when I go to cosmetology school I'll meet some people who share my obsession ;D My boyfriend gets it- he's ok with me putting money into it since he saw that I'm not buying makeup in addition to anything else I may want, I'm buying it in place of other things. My mom thinks it's frivolous and will occasionally give me a hard time. She can't comprehend why anyone would need more than a few things to make themselves up each day with the same look. I've gotten some comments/questions from friends about how I can afford so much makeup because they know I'm on a budget. I just explain that they make money in their budgets for their hobbies and interests, like video games, going out to nice restaurants, photography, whatever and that's what makeup is to me- it's not just something I throw on in the morning and don't think about again. It's one of my favorite things.
So, I want to hear about how it is for you! I think this could be a good discussion.
Also, I hope I posted this in the right place since it's a question?
