Welcome back to 12 Days of Christmas here on allisonderosia.com ! Todays topic is a bit of a silly one but also one that makes me smile. It involves Brittish youtubers, red liptstick, and the beauty spiral my life has taken. (Sprial up or down...its yet to be decided)
Today I was putting on my makeup and once again found myself reaching for that Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 107. Its the lipstick that started my beauty collection. The reason I have more makeup than I know what to do with. and also the reason why I cant stop buying makeup I DONT NEED (You feel me right?) Well this started back in Zoe Suggs Bedroom.. Well through youtube all about 3 or 4 years ago.
She wore it in a christmas video and in that moment I had to have it. I ordered it from amazon for double the price to find they actually did sell it in the united states... But I had never really been into watching youtube videos, and wasnt into the whole beauty world that lives in youtube and on blogs. Well Ever since then I take 80% of my style and beauty advice from Zoe and every christmas I remember that time just from the scent of the lipstick.
I always laugh when I see my drawer filled with so much makeup because It all started with that litle burgady booger of a lipstick that I couldnt live without all because of a british girl filming youtube videos in her basement. After buying that one lipstick I decided I needed to really invest in this whole lipstick and makeup thing and I wouldnt change a thing. Ive even added visiting Brighton to my bucket list all because of the vlogs and photos she posts and I just NEED to experience that english little sea town for myself.
So when I ask myself "How did I end up with this much makeup." I like to think back to the first christmas I found Zoe Sugg's Videos and how It is an absolute Christmas tradition for me to watch all of her videos and buy more impulse lipsticks I really dont need.
This time of year it's fun to look back at what has helped get you to where you are today. And to see the impact little decisions make on your life without you even realizing.
