How Do I Get My Hands on These Makeup Palettes?
If you are interested in the high end makeup palettes mentioned above, Sephora is where you’ll want to go. A “one-stop-shop” for luxury makeup. As soon as a new product is released you can find it at Sephora.
A few more bonuses? Sephora is available in store or online. You don’t even have to leave the house to get awesome makeup.
Sephora also offers several different levels of rewards programs. These programs run on a point system and can get you some sweet sample products for free. The more you spend the more perks you get as a “Beauty Insider”.
Monthly Subscription Services
One of the best ways to dabble when you are first starting out in makeup is through monthly subscription boxes. This type of service will provide you with five or so products each month in sample or deluxe sample sizes. You are charged monthly for the service.
When you decide to start a monthly subscription you will be required to answer a few questions about yourself and your “relationship” with makeup.
What color are your eyes? What is your skin tone? What type of skin do you have?
What is your favorite product? Do you wear lipstick? Do you like matte or dewy products?
Answering these questions will help the company in getting you products that you will love and use regularly.
Subscriptions like Boxy Charm or Play! by Sephora are awesome ways to try new products to see what you like and also what you don’t. Many subscriptions will even include a full sized product every now and then.
If you are looking to go the more affordable route when you are just starting out then the drug store is the way to go.
Often drug store makeup gets a bad name for being cheaper in quality because it is lower in price but that is not always the case!
While you do need to do your research on drug store products prior to buying them you can score some really awesome things there (as you can see from the list above)!
