Let me tell you my story… MAC has always intimidated me until one day I decided I will brave it. I went to the MAC counter at Nordstrom at my local mall and I knew I wanted to purchase a few things for the first time! Luckily, one of the girls working there actually went to my high school and she was really helpful (shoutout to Farhat!!). After trying on a few products on me, I decided that I needed eyeshadows to start with and a couple good brushes.
I decided to go for Saddle, Embark and All That Glitters. I know, great choice! The first lipstick that I bought was High Tea and the brushes… well, 217, 252 and 150. Yasss! I made great choices. Ever since then, I was hooked! That’s pretty much how my collection started.
I realized that if I only saved a couple more bucks and buy high(er) end products, I’d be getting the bang out of my buck. I am not saying that drugstore products are not worth it… in fact, a couple of my holy grails are from the drugstore. I guess what I am trying to say is that don’t let the higher prices intimidate you, or the girls that are all dolled up in the store – they are friendly and most of the time helpful. So go and walk in there and have fun!
P.S. One of my first makeup tutorial will be based on the products mentioned above.
