I use MAC satin taupe on the lid, MAC deep damson in the crease, and MAC shadowy lady as an outer-v shade. You can buy MAC refill pans for $6.00 each or you can get the single eyeshadows in a case for $16.00 each.
The new trend in the beauty community seems to be not only decluttering but also using decluttering as a tool to kick-start a low or no buy. As I was sorting through my thoughts and thinking about what I learned about both decluttering and being on a “low buy,” I decided to write them down and share it with you. I put low buy in quotes because I don’t really consider myself on one anymore and I didn’t start the low buy because I needed to control spending. I originally decided to slow down on purchases because I was buying things for blogging purposes and got very overwhelmed. I finally realized at some point that if I just purchased and used what I wanted for myself that I would still have something to blog about. I also was just getting into makeup when I started blogging and so a lot of what I was buying was me figuring out what worked and didn’t work for me. Now that I’m out of the experimental phase and know what I like, it has been naturally easy to buy less because I already have the things that I like.
It is impossible to write this kind of topic without it sounding like you’re expressing rules, but keep in mind that you should keep the advice that works for you personally and disregard what doesn’t.
The other day I was watching an older video from emilynoel83 and really loved the eyeshadow look she did with the Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 palette. So here is my latest shop my stash moment inspired by her look.
I picked these up back when they first launched (July 2017) and was really excited to give them a try. This line is exclusive to the Real Techniques website and ranges in price from $10-$25. There are only 6 items in this collection and it was created specifically to be used with powder products. I decided to pass on the powder puff and the large kabuki brush and get the four other brushes. I think the design is really beautiful and the brushes are extremely soft. Aesthetically, I can see why they’d be more expensive than other brushes the brand has released. Since the bristles are a new type of technology that they created for powders, that is also going to play into that higher price tag.
