Value of Make UP

Sunday, February 24, 2013

There are a plethora of make-up brands circulating the globe today that sometimes, more often than not, cause women to have a very difficult time sifting through myriad products in their attempt to perfect their own unique signature look. The decision to buy one particular brand instead of having several brands in your makeup bag creates a dilemma of sorts.



It is really up to the individual to decide which make up products are critically important for them to splurge on and which are not. You should seek out make up products that are a breeze to apply. For me, foundation and powder are key to achieving a flawless look. I would definitely buy hi-end products here, I also find that I am very particular when it comes to my lipsticks and lip glosses so again I buy hi-end.


If you are an individual that has very dark under eye circles and flawless skin, then by all means seek out a good quality concealer that has superior camouflage abilities and long lasting properties and opt for a lower end foundation with sheer coverage. Women with blemished skin and sun spots should definitely buy hi-end foundations that deliver full coverage with moisturising skin benefits.  It all depends on your individual needs and what you deem to be important as opposed to not.


If you buy a good eye shadow primer then budget eye shadows would be a breeze to apply with minimum effort. It is not necessary to splurge on lip liners, eye pencils and cheek blushes as there are some really amazing ones on the market that are very cheap and does the job efficiently. Mascaras come in all sorts of formulations but again there is usually not much of a difference between low and high end products in most cases. 


So when next you are thinking of purchasing make up, decide on what is critically important to your needs, do your research, take a deep breath and buy the hi-end products that you need and not what you want.
