When you're a true beauty-lover, you know firsthand that the struggle can be real. Too real, sometimes. Like trying to get your cat-eye totally perfect when you're on a hard time deadline? What am I, a wizard?

Your mindset is just DIFFERENT when you're a makeup-adoring, product-hoarding, beauty junkie. Here are 14 things that *all* beauty lovers do differently.

When someone tells you they sleep in their makeup, you have this reaction:

"Oh yeah, sure, it's not a big deal..." *screams internally*

And you CANNOT BELIEVE people who say they've never cleaned their brushes.

"But... but... but... BACTERIA!"

You nearly have a rage-stroke when you see beauty bloggers giving terrible DIY skincare advice.

DO NOT. PUT LEMON JUICE. ON YOUR FAAAAAAACE.

And your makeup storage system practically qualifies as the eighth wonder of the world.

Beige-nude lipsticks are in THIS drawer, pink-nude lipsticks are in THIS drawer, and brown-nudes are HERE...

Beauty-lovers never just GO to Sephora — we plan our shopping trips down to the most minute detail.

"So I start over at BECCA and grab that new highlighter, than I hit Urban Decay for brow pencil, and THEN I'm gonna check out the new NARS launches."

By the time the Holidays roll around, you're already planning out your spring lewk.

"Gift sets? Over it — have you seen NARS' summer lipsticks?!"

And you start planning for Halloween in January.

Hey, it takes TIME to assemble makeup this flawless.

Beauty-lovers have no time for haters who try to lecture you about "rules."

The only rule in makeup is "If you like it, wear it." Any other rules are nothing but sexist, racist, boring-as-hell nonsense.

And you do NOT put up with "Men don't like women who wear makeup" baloney.

As if I'd waste my time blending my shadow for some fool who can't tell Half Baked from Chopper.

Beauty-lovers KNOW and LOVE the power of our own slay.

We don't talk shit about our looks — we own every single part of ourselves. I mean, I didn't buy this highlighter to not admire it!

And we're quick to tell other people when we love THEIR makeup.

Game recognizes game — and beauty-lovers always know one another. When we see another babe rocking the shit out of some neon blue lipstick, we compliment her on her slay and her bravery.

Beauty-lovers don't hate on other people's looks — that's SO boring.

We know it takes courage to rock your dream makeup day after day.

Because beauty-lovers know that being a queen is hard, and supporting one another is the best weapon we've got.

We truly are better together.

After all, who else is gonna tell you when you've overplucked your brows?
