Don’t Be a Beauty Brand Whore

I’ve never been one that’s big on name brands when it comes to certain things.  As long as it looks nice, is in good condition I’ll use it.  I won’t budge on things like my Tropicana Orange Juice, Dawn or Ajax dish washing liquid or Arm & Hammer or Gain laundry detergent.  Those are my jams…..outside of that I’ll use a generic brand.

Makeup and beauty products range in price from super cheap like what you see at the Dollar Tree to super expensive brands like Chanel and Dior.  I refuse to by an $80 foundation because I know I can make a $10 foundation look just as good or better.  The foundation that I get the most compliments on is a $10 foundation, L’Oreal’s True Match.

You don’t have to get caught up in all the hype of the expensive brands.  With makeup it’s more about knowing what to do in terms of application than the product itself.  If someone who has no makeup knowledge uses a $200 worth of makeup it’s still gonna look like poo. And sometimes money gets tight but you still want to look your best.

Some of the best makeup can be found in local urban beauty supply stores.  The quality is comparable or very close to higher end brands.  Come window shopping with me!  I’ll show you guys some products that I use on myself and clients that have great coverage and lasting power just like the more expensive brands.
