Let’s face it ladies, makeup is an art form. And as artists, a lot goes through our heads while working on our masterpieces.

So, whether you’re an amateur makeup user, or a full-on beauty guru, here are some of the thoughts that nearly every woman has had while during her makeup.

1. Ugh. I forgot to wet my beauty blender again.

I just sat down, and now I have to walk all the way over to the sink. Sigh. 

2. Why did I spend $45 on this primer?

Why is makeup so EXPENSIVE? 

3. Does this foundation match my face? 

4. Omg, I need to pop that zit.

5. Omg, WHY did I pop that zit?

I am gonna need SO much concealer. 

6. When was the last time I washed these brushes?

Do I even want to know? 

7. Is contouring different from bronzing?

I should probably know this stuff by now. 

8. Oooh, maybe I’ll try to follow a fun makeup tutorial.

This shouldn’t be that hard. 

9. Okay, this eyeshadow is actually way harder than it looks.

10. Okay, this time, I’m totally gonna nail this winged eyeliner.

11. Ugh. Why do I even bother?

12. My eyebrows are definitely uneven.

My eyebrows are sisters, not twins. 

13. Can I pull off a bold red lip? Or can only Taylor Swift do that?

14. Highlight? Yes please!

Get that GLOW, girl. 

15. Does setting spray even work? 

This literally just feels like water. 

16. Well hello gorgeous ;) 

There she is. Missed you, sis!
