Luxury Makeup - How to start your collection of Luxury Makeup

Hey all!

Today I wanted to come on here and list a few tips for those who want to start building a collection  of luxury makeup. First, what is luxury makeup? Luxury makeup might be different to different people, but overall, luxury makeup is makeup that is marketed and has the feel of luxury. Luxury makeup might be connected to a luxury brand, for example, Tom Ford or Marc Jacobs, which are luxury clothing brands that also have beauty lines. Still, not all luxury makeup brands are connected to luxury clothing lines. Take for example brands like Pat Mcgrath Labs and Natasha Denona. These two brands were started by world renowned makeup artist who have long standing reputations within the makeup industry. Their brands are luxury because of the marketing, price range, and because they are connected to their names.

So now that we have a basis, a loose definition of what a luxury brand is, let's talk about how to start a luxury makeup collections. These are just my tips, my opinion, and how I've started my small collection that I have currently.

1. If you are working within a budget and can't afford certain items, wait for a sale.

Most of the luxury eye-shadow palettes I've collected so far are palettes I got from a sale. For example, I got two Tom Ford eye shadow quads from two different sites that had them discounted. So instead of paying the full 88 dollars from Tom Ford, I found other sites that had the palettes with a percentage off. Same with the other palettes I've bought recently from several brands, including Pat Mcgrath, Charlotte Tilbury, and Marc Jacobs.

2. Buy mini versions. Some luxury brands will have mini palettes or mini makeup products which are sold with a lower price tag. Use this as a chance to try the brand out before committing to the regular size. For instance, I have two mini palettes from Natasha Denona, whose full size palettes go for 129 dollars. The mini palettes can be bought for 25 dollars.

Charlotte Tilbury - Green Lights

3. Purchase bundle deals. Sometimes makeup brands will have bundle deals where you can get several products for a lower price than buying the items individually. So wait for those bundle deals to get some luxury products.

These are most of my tips for now. I'll add on if I find other tips to starting a luxury makeup collection. Below I've listed some luxury makeup brands to try.

Book! - Let's talk about books and reading 2021

 Hey everyone! It's been awhile since my last blog post.... But here I am again!  So today I'm going to be listing off some good and not so good books I've been reading so far into 2021. If you're interested, just keep on reading  Some books I've read so far this year worth missing: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire    *** - 3 stars out of 5 The most recent book I have finished, this book explores what happens to those students who find doorways to other worlds, and what really happens when they come back to the "real" world. A very interesting concept, I enjoyed most of the characters and the writing, but felt the story to be a bit incomplete, but still think it's worth checking out, which is why it gets a 3 out of 5 rating.  The Maze Runner series - The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, and The Death Cure by James Dashner **** 4 stars out of 5 I'm glad I read this series this year. I finished all three books in February and I really enjoyed t

Review of Colourpop Garden Variety Palette

Many makeup brands have been going crazy with so many new makeup release and today I'm giving my quick opinion on the newish Colourpop Garden Variety palette. Since this palette released a few weeks ago, Colourpop has already released two other collections, so I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my opinion on the Garden Variety palette since I actually bought this palette myself and wanted to review it. So let's get into my opinion and quick review: First some.... Basic Information: Price - $20 Pans - 15 eyeshadows Formulas - mattes, metallics, and Colourpop's super shock formula Net Weight - 17g (.6 oz) Shades: neutrals, oranges, corals, golds, purples, greens, and browns My Opinion: Quality - The quality is the usual quality for Colourpop. Colourpop is one of my favorite brands and has a very good formula. On top of being affordable, they also have a very good formula. This palette is no exception, it has a good formula and I had no issues blending the shadows.
