“I’m obsessed with watching beauty videos on YouTube and now on Instagram Story. I’m keeping up with my favorite artists and thinking okay, they did this with this, can I recreate it or do it in a different way? And I like to just say up on new products that are coming out, like I browse the “New In” on Sephora every morning.
Sites like Sephora are my go-to’s just because they connect with their customers a lot – they’ll recommend things for you, and I’m a VIB so they’ll let you know about things that are going to drop before they do. But honestly, I hardly ever really look at celebrities and say “oh, I want that look” I’m always looking at makeup artists on social media or YouTube vloggers that I’ve been following for a long time. I’ve never really thought about it, but I don’t think I really look at celebrities that much, or as much as I do with the artists and YouTube vloggers.
But, there’s nothing like the first day that you wear a new product that you got. The first day that I wore Champagne Pop I was literally like “I’m a celebrity, this is the best I’ve ever felt and the most wonderful day of my life.”
So, I definitely feel like trying new things, and using different makeup combinations makes you feel great about yourself – for me at least, because I love makeup.
If you feel like you look good, then you radiate looking good to others.
I’ll definitely do research on a product before I get it, I’ll look at any reviews there are. Another reason I love Sephora is because their review section is so good. The people that comment on it are so dedicated. I’m really wondering if I should get the Makeup by Mario Limited Edition palette that came out on Sephora today, and I haven’t decided if I’m going to get it yet.
Also, if it’s around payday I’ll definitely try a new product, as opposed to now I just paid my rent yesterday which is why I’m kind of like ‘hmm do I need this $50 makeup palette by Mario?’ But, it’s limited edition so I probably will get it anyway. But yeah, I definitely do my research. There’s seldom a time that I’ll buy something that I’ve never heard of. I do want to try to start doing more of that, because I feel like it would be cool to be the first one to be like ‘guys check this new product out’ as opposed to just ‘I love this too.’
So, today I am wearing the Mary Jo K from the Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lip. I have a lot of them, and honestly this is the one that I probably wear the least because I’m honestly normally a nude lip person. But sometimes you know, I just had red on my shirt and was feeling an October vibe so I thought let’s just go with it today.
For the rest of my look, I have the Benefit PoreFessional Primer on, then the Make Up For Ever HD Mat Velvet + Foundation, and oh my God I just got the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer – I don’t know if you guys have tried it yet, but it is the best freaking concealer ever, it works so well and I’m obsessed with it. I was using the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer but I don’t like it as much as I like this one. But, it’s an Ulta exclusive so you have to find an Ulta to buy it. So, I have that on. These are not my real lashes, I got eyelash extensions a month ago and I thought they would come out by now, and they’re not coming off. They’ve just been stuck on, but they look okay – I’ve been doing everything they told me not to do – like wearing mascara, and they’re still not coming off.
Anyway, my bronzer is Too Faced Chocolate Soleil, and then on my eyes I have the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette – which is fire. I love makeup, I don’t know if you guys are getting that from this yet. But, I’m really wondering if I should get the Makeup by Mario Limited Edition palette that came out on Sephora today, and I haven’t decided if I’m going to get it yet.
But, then I used the Sephora brand Liquid Liner, I’ve tried every one and that one is just my favorite, it stays and the tip is harder than the Kat Von D or Stila ones that I’ve tried which I like. And then I have L’Oreal mascara and the Gimme Brow on my brows – it cuts the time in half on my brows.”
