Since a young age I’ve had a love / hate relationship with makeup, but over the last few years I honestly think immersing myself in social media and blogging, has opened me up to the world of makeup in a positive way.
When I was younger, I squirmed at the thought of applying lipstick and vowed that I would never wear the stuff – it honestly scared me, to the point that I didn’t even like getting my face painted at parties – lol I was a weirdo, but as I’ve grown up it’s all become a bit of a playground for me. I now see applying makeup as a way to accentuate my best features, a luxurious step in the game of getting ready for the day ahead and I really have started to enjoy it.
Saying this though, I’ve recently come to look at my makeup collection through critical eyes, I’m just not excited by the products I use anymore and I put this down to the type of products I buy. I don’t own any high end makeup!
This may not be a big deal for many I’m sure, but I’ve come to a stage in life where I definitely appreciate quality over quantity and really feel it’s time for me to invest in good products, instead of the popular hype.
With anything I buy I have to ask myself specific questions, to see if what I want is a worthwhile purchase…
-Will it save me money in the long run?
-Once I have it, will I use it?
-How long will it last me, how long will I use it for?
-Do I have anything like this already?
High end makeup can pull on the purse strings especially as you DON’T actually need makeup to survive, but, if like me you wear makeup on a near daily basis, I think it’s totally acceptable to indulge in such products as, they’ll last, they’re of good quality (not saying that cheaper products aren’t) and a little goes a long way.
I dislike change with a passion, which means I tend to stick to products I know , but after a bit of research and peeping a few new releases, I’ve built myself a bit of a high end beauty wish list which mainly consists of base products, but I feel once you have great base products, you can build a fab look with any other type of makeup products you already own!
A more than few of these products are exactly what this post is about – A WISH! But, if I could afford these luxury beauty items, I definitely would…
Mulberry Makeup Bag | Zoeva Makeup Brush Set | Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Kit | Nars Monoi Body Glow | Marc Jacobs Gel Lipstick | Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow | Bobbi Brown Highlighter | Bobbi Brown Nude Finishing Powder | Urban Decay Naked Skin | Christian Louboutin Nail Varnish
Im really excited to try these products, as they look lush and I’ve heard nothing but good things!
Do any of you wear high end beauty, if so, which items would you swear by? x
