Finding makeup is a hard enough job to do! The struggles of price, quality, and quantity is such a hassle when trying to find the right products. Here is some advice when shopping for your makeup.

  1. Knowing your skin type: it’s so important because if you don’t find the right products you can easily break out in acne and nobody likes that. It’s okay to be picky about the type of foundation and cover up you’re looking for. Consult with a skin esthetician if you have to. One of the best places to find a free/ super cheap skin esthetician is at Ulta. They have a full skin treatment for super cheap and it’s free to consult with them about they type of skin you have and what products you’re looking for.
  2. Don’t just buy the product because it’s name brand or a celebrity recommends it: one of the many struggles is when someone hypes up a specific product that is expensive. You buy it, and it doesn’t work the way it was expected. One of the many examples is the Kylie Jenner cosmetics. The lip products are not justified for what they claim to be. The liquid lipsticks smudge easily, dry out your lips fast and don’t last long on your lips at all.
  3. If you’re going to a beauty store consult with the employees: for the most part they know what they are doing. Always pick the person who seems like they genuinely care about your needs, because if you don’t they will just try to sell you the most expensive products in the store and not even care about what you’re looking for.
  4. Sometimes cheaper products work better than name brands: it’s totally okay to buy cheaper stuff. Sometimes I totally recommend it to clients because I know it’ll work better and they get to save money. In comparing the Nars Climax Mascara  to the Maybelline Colossal Mascara you will find in both products are very soft mascaras, not very smudgy, full brushes, and give your lashes a full body look. The Nars mascara is $24 and the mini is $11 at Ulta, the Maybelline Colossal Mascara is $5.69 at Target. You get more long lasting lasting and cheaper product from the Maybelline Colossal Mascara.

It’s always about doing research on the product you are looking and knowing what is in them.
