I don’t find neutrals boring, which I did when I just started getting into makeup (at 18), and I’m much more comfortable in my own skin, so I don’t have to have a full face of makeup just to get coffee. Being older means more experience with products overall, as well as working full-time means more disposable income than I had as a student, so I can use products that would have been out of my reach before. I have less patience and acceptance for under-performing products, so when I reach for products, I reach for ones I love and that work well.
