1. Walking into a makeup store to restock on your favorite product and finding out that you bought the last one they had.
The Beauty Gods—and the super helpful sales assistants—were in your favor.
2. Getting your brows threaded or waxed.
3. Actually, nailing your brows in general.
With the amount of brow products you use on a daily basis, you’d think you’d have your routine on point every single time. But that isn’t always the case. So when you DO get perfect arches in one go, it is absolutely euphoric.
4. Having a perfectly even winged liner.
Winged liner so sharp, it could stab the heart of your cheating ex-boyfriend—yes please.
5. The feeling of smooth exfoliated skin.
NOTHING CAN EVER COMPARE TO THIS. N O T H I N G.
6. Opening a new eye shadow palette and seeing the untouched colors neatly arranged in the pan.
It's a work of art, you guys.
7. Seeing YouTubers show off their insane makeup collections.
They have highlighter DRAWERS. The videos might make you feel a little jelly of their larger-than-life collections, but you’re more likely to feel giddy at the sight of their products.
8. Bagong blowout hair after a salon visit.
I can’t be the only one obsessed with super shiny, bouncy locks after a fresh cut, right? And this is why we always give a huge tip to the lady who blow-dries our hair.
9. The feeling of waxed legs against your blanket.
YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT HEAVEN FEELS LIKE UNTIL YOU’VE FELT THIS. YOU JUST DON’T.
10. Waking up with a non-existent zit because your drying lotion worked its magic as you were in deep slumber.
If you still don’t have a go-to overnight acne cream, you’re seriously missing out.
11. Wearing falsies and seeing how much it changes your looks in photos.
The pain was worth it!!!
12. Seeing the magic of concealer after perfectly blending it under your eyes.
Oh makeup, you always know how to uplift our mood.
13. Opening a fresh tube of mascara and witnessing it perfectly coat every single one of your lashes.
LOOK AT THAT LIFT AND CURL.
14. Acing your contour and highlight game and marveling at yourself in the mirror.
15. Taking off your colored contacts after the end of a long day.
Beauty is pain. #TiisGandaForever
16. Peeling off your face mask after leaving it on way longer than what the instructions say.
P100 per sheet? And 15 minutes lang on my face? Hellz no.
17. Eating greasy food and seeing your lipstick still intact.
#Bless these people who created long-wearing lippies.
18. Finding that one lipstick color that just looks SO good on you that you immediately buy back-ups.
Love at first swipe is a VERY real thing. Don’t let other people tell you it isn’t.
19. Getting that game-changing foundation that makes you look like you have your life together.
And you will never part ways.
20. Waking up with the sexiest beach waves after sleeping in braids or bun.
Who needs to iron their hair? Not me.
