Cheap Makeup Vs. High-End Makeup....Oh the Pressure?!!!




How are my dolls doing?! Hopefully all are doing fabulous! :) Today's Topic.....Makeup :) Let me start off by saying that I'm a proud owner of both high-end and cheap cosmetic brands; and I personally favor both the same. When I first got into makeup I was like many of you watching tutorials on Youtube and felt that if I didn't own high-end products (including makeup tools) that I couldn't simply achieve those looks in the videos. In my case, all I saw were MAC Cosmetics and MAC brushes in those tutorials, so naturally I felt the pressure to own those particular products. At the time, I just simply couldn't afford it and because of that I kinda felt inferior and simply to put it lightly....I felt like a LOSER! <---Not a great feeling.

 Over time I started to build my makeup collection and learned that there's nothing wrong with owning "affordable makeup". I will say that I've came across personalities (people) that only favor "high-end" products and even made it perfectly clear that they would never purchase low-end makeup, and to me that saddens me. I don't know about you guys but to me that's the WRONG mentality! Whether you're an aspiring makeup artist or a shouldn't down others and make them feel inferior just because they can't afford "high-end". I applaud all those pros that keep it real and are honest and use both high-end and cheap makeup and are not afraid to admit it. High-end or the end of the day it's still makeup, the only thing is that the quality is different; Agreed?. If you claim that you're a so called "skilled" makeup artist than you can use any kind of product to your advantage regardless of the price, in my opinion. Over time I've also learned that some products of the cheap makeup brands even out-shine some of the high-end ones and that's the truth my beauties!

 The point I'm trying to get at's not the product that makes you but the SKILL that you have to apply makeup period. So dolls it's okay to work with what you got and be proud of it; there is nothing to be ashamed of. CONFIDENCE is key Ladies and Gentleman. I hope this entry gave you some type of insight on how to look at beauty products differently and in a more positive light :). Let me know what you guys think about this entry and what are your thoughts when it comes to owning high-end or cheap makeup or both. Till next time my lovelies! Have a Fab Day!
