I definitely tend to go more neutral/natural around my extended family, though they all know and support the blog (it is slightly embarrassing but very cute, but my uncles/aunts and cousins will tell their clients/customers at work about the blog). I find it’s more appreciated when it’s like that, as opposed to brighter makeup, but I’ve been leaning towards softer looks more often than not these days!

I wouldn’t say so, because I don’t usually remember to wear perfume unless I’m testing one! On special occasions, I will reach for one, and my favorite is Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, though I don’t know if I’d say that’s really a signature scent.

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.

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.
