It’s increased overall, though this year seems to be running a little under the last few years–we’ll have to see how the year closes out, and then I can actually try to dive into the details to see why (I’m very curious).
1.) Unsubscribe/unfollow any brand or people you find particularly too tempting too often–I think this works well for marketing emails or fast brands (like ColourPop) so that you don’t feel inundated with new, new, new or buy, buy, buy. There are some people who may post a good mix of content...
I really appreciate when people explain why they do something in particular; it’s not necessarily the motion or the what but the explanation on why they’re doing that and how it furthers the technique/getting to the goal.
Happy Wednesday! Here's this week's survey, which you can copy and paste and share as a comment.
- Your skin tone/coloring:
- Favorite peach/orange lip product?
- Favorite peach/orange cheek product?
- Favorite peach/orange eye product?
I love watching them, and I love seeing transformations/how creative people can get, but it’s not something I personally enjoy doing, so I’m content to watch the effort others put in!
PEARLY RED LIPSTICKS. I just feel like red is a classic, holiday kind of color, and then duh, add shimmer. I remember years ago, I’d always look forward to a great, MAC holiday shimmery, red lipstick. There actually aren’t THAT many (relative to how many reds and brands exist) exist in...
Tell us what you love and hate about...
They have some really solid formulas in their core range, but sometimes, they play it so safe that their actual product releases look and feel redundant, even when I look at them as “someone new is always coming into makeup.” I’d like to see them take a little more risk, depart a little more from their usual zone, in small ways.
These days, definitely Pat McGrath since there’s a plethora of eyeshadow to indulge in (my favorite category). It would be shortly followed by Natasha Denona (particularly since I think the formulas have improved in the last two years). I’m also a big fan of Bite’s sets!
