I’m evolving into such a girly girl now like I pay attention to everything I put on my body and I try to pay attention to everything I put in my body..well kinda..LOOK IM WORKING IT! (lmao)
I started getting my lashes done a couple months ago, I try to get my nails done every 2-3 weeks, and I try to keep my hair done on a monthly or every other month basis depending on what style I have. So its like everything comes together for me..everything but my got damn make-up!
I’ve been using MAC products since I was 16 years old. I never really had an issue with my make-up until now, and I’m 28 years old. Probably because when I was younger all this highlighting and contouring bullshit wasn’t a thought I just put my Studio Fix on and went on about my day! Oh and my ‘Ooh Baby’ lip gloss.
Recently I’ve been looking a bit ashy by the face and since its the summer and my complexion has gotten darker my current foundation hasn’t been really covering much, and let me not get on my eyebrows! I bought this cheap angle brush and it wasn’t angling a damn thing! I also bought a cheap concealer that was not “blendable” at all! It actually made my skin super dry. I was getting so annoyed with my make up I was ready to throw everything that was MAC away, and I was over going back to the MAC store to get new make-up just to continue to look ashy. Actually I was over MAC when they discontinued ‘Show-off’ which was an eyebrow gel I LOVED! MAC always getting rid of the good shit!
After complaining to one of my close friends about my make up she told me to take my behind to Sephora and try them out. She kept saying “You know its a lot more make-up brands out there other than MAC!”. I’m like girrrrrl MAC is who I can afford! I eventually got annoyed enough to get up and go see what Sephora was talking about.
I went to the Sephora in Sugarland, and as soon as I walked in I was greeted and immediately helped. I forgot the young woman’s name who helped me, but she was awesome and so patient. I even went there with the brushes I use to see if I was using the right ones, and why I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I ended up spending…a lot lol about $100. (bae helped..get you a bae who cares about your face lmaooo) I think it’s so cool how Sephora uses this tool to match your skin tone! MAC would have just piled different foundation colors on my poor cheeks, well that’s what I have experienced in the past. Sephora really helped me, and I’ve been loving my make-up so far!
Here is some of the things I bought:
Cover FX finishing powder
A dual ended Anastasia Angle/Spoolie brush
Sephora brand concealer
Never be afraid to step outside of the box, and never be afraid to spend a couple extra dollars on quality. I’m slllooooowwwwlllyyy learning this! I can’t be cheap when it comes to make-up, clothes, and skin care. Next I plan on trying some skin care products from Sephora that helps with oily skin. Actually, if you have any advice on skin care products please let me know!
