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.

Million Yen Women - Japanese Drama Review


In this post I'm going to be reviewing a Japanese Drama called Million Yen Women, that I watched on Netflix. First a little background. One of my favorite things to do is watch TV. I love finding a good show and binge watching. I started watching Asian dramas my sophomore year of college and since then I've been hooked. I've watched dramas from Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Philippines, and India. Now I don't exclusively like shows from these Asian countries, I still watch American shows as well, but I do find myself binge watching these more often because they are usually one season with anywhere between 10-30 episodes. Short and to the point. Now there are shows that are longer but generally that is the episode range. In addition, I also watch telenovelas occasionally, but let's save that for another post. Through my blog I want to review and recommend some TV shows that I truly enjoyed and I hope you will too!

Anyway lets get on …

Ways Teachers Can Handle Stress!

As a teacher that is in my second (and a half) year of teaching, I can attest to the very true fact that teaching is not only difficult, it is also very stressful. Many may not understand, or may think that teachers just complain, but the truth is that teachers work really hard, long hours, and they often neglect their own health or families to make sure students have everything they need. Now this isn't going to be every teacher but most teachers I've met and worked with so far are very dedicated and work to give their students the best.


That being said, how can teachers relieve some of the stress that comes with the pressure to provide the best for students. Here are some tips that hopefully can help someone, including myself. I need to take my own advice, because this being only my second (and a half) year of teaching, I already feel worn out and I had a health scare not to long ago. Teachers everywhere, please remember to take some time for yourself and relieve some …

A Spanish Teachers Top 10 Kpop groups (Male)

So today I wanted to write about my top 10 favorite KPOP male groups. Quick background, I got into Kpop about 3 1/2 years ago and I got hooked from watching Kdramas, (or Korean Drama shows). So if you're a Kpop fan, a casual listener, or maybe you've never even listened to Kpop, this list is just to introduce my favorites. Maybe you'll be persuaded to give some of these groups a listen. Okay, let's get started.

 Now this list is going to be going from 10 to 1. I love all these groups and think they are all amazing but the number one spot is going to be reserved from my ultimate bias group. I will write a bit about why I put these groups on my list.
10. Pentagon
I don't know why it took me so long to start stanning Pentagon, but they definitely deserve more love and recognition. They have some great songs. 
9. Monsta X Monsta X is a group I just recently started listening to and I have to say they really are an amazing group.
8. Seventeen Seventeen is one of those g…
