In the beginning, I definitely stayed in one brand, and a lot of that does come down to accessibility and affordability (it was MAC!). MAC is totally a gateway drug 🙂 But in the long run, no, and I think it’s better to buy the best products from all brands instead of settling for products from just one brand. Every brand will have hit or miss products as well as hit or miss shades.

5 Holiday Makeup Looks

5 Holiday Makeup Looks

Reader Jenelle asked for some suggestions for holiday makeup, what with all of the holiday parties in full swing!  I’m a huge fan of shimmery red/berry lips for the holidays, so I tend to go more neutral on the eyes.  I still have a soft spot for smoky golds, bronzes, coppers, berries, and greens, though 🙂  Here are my five picks…

  1. Easy neutral eyes + red lip
  2. Bronzes + greens
  3. Intense, smoky purples
  4. Golds + berries
  5. Matte neutral eye + shimmery lips

I love a good sale, and if something’s discounted, that’s just more money in my pocket for something else, but if a brand is often available at 30-50% off their regular price, then I definitely don’t bother paying full price. It’s like an upcoming sale; if you know it’s going on sale, you wait a week until it does to buy it! I think it cheapens the brand in the customer’s perspective; it’s almost like saying your products aren’t worth the real price you charge but half of that.
