  • Have a 'treat yourself day' once a year - and a budget for that day...

    If you have something - like a blush, you don't need another one... just tell yourself that. Make it rational. Also - try to make some plans about how to spend your money in the future. If you feel you'll want an incredible coat - you'll have to save money for it - and each makeup item you spend on is getting you further away from that goal...
    Or if you want to save money - make a plan to save a certain amount every month.

  • It's a mental addiction and your best best is to go cold turkey if you believe it's a problem. You need to also find motivation to kick your addiction. I'm quitting smoking cigarettes right now so I know how it is to kick an addiction, especially one that is a mental and a physical addiction.

    You need to find the willpower to quit before you can start to try and be moderate at it. Yours is quite easy.

  • Just start telling yourself you look ugly with it. Maybe you'll stop wearing it then.

  • many guys like myself actually think women look better without makeup. I guess my brain is just like "Hey! Real skin! 8-D" Perhaps you could repeat this to yourself?

  • If it makes you happy, go for it. You should pick days of lots make up, some make up and no make. The you can see different versions of looks that you never knew you have.

      Sephora! They sell make-up, soaps, perfumes, hair products... But mostly make-up!

    • 3mo

      Well, if there's nothing essential you buy there, why do you keep going back?

  • My sister used to be obsessed with shopping for makeup due to the amount videos she watched on youtube. In order to stop her addiction, she stopped watching those videos.

    So if you think you are getting influenced by something like that or anything, then try to avoid it

  • I'm 47 years old and the best strategy I have is to stay away from situations where I can buy extraneous makeup; that counter at the malls, that part of the drug store, online shopping, resist my friend's make up parties, and go through the make up I have all the time so I keep perspective of the great amount I already possess.

  • Do you actually use it all on a regular basis? I'm guessing you don't. Think of all the other things you could buy instead or just know that saving it up for the future is always a good idea.

  • Perhaps don't go into stores that sell make up! Or you could be like "I'll use up 5-10 items before I buy a new one" and maybe that'll reduce the buying
