Im asked the question a whole lot on myspace & i have a little FAQ blog on there where i have an answer thats about 2 years old. I thought i'd use this question as my first FAQ blog just because it is probably the #1 question im asked & the answer needs an update lol.
So i have to say im a huge MAC fanatic, but really, who isnt? I definitely devote almost all of my earnings to MAC as i am an extremely loyal customer. Their products are extremely well made (well most of them anyway) and they have such a variety of products that 9 times out of 10 you'll always find what you're looking for. Now another reason why i love MAC is because it is such a known & trusted brand. If im doing makeup on a client, they usually know what MAC is and since it is a high end brand, the luxury of having expensive makeup used on them is definitely still there. I generally go for brands that are well known for their amazing quality, it puts the client at ease. My foundations, however, are 100% CoverFX. They are a little pricey but definitely worth it. I doubt i'll ever switch to any other brand. Im in love.
Urban Decay, TooFaced, Smashbox & most recently MakeUp ForEver (way expensive) are brands that im also constantly reaching for. My collections for these arent the biggest as i do tend to stray towards MAC over Sephora but im extremely loyal to these brands aswell.
Loreal & Rimmel London are probably the only drugstore brands i'll touch. Revlons foundations are very good aswell but thats the only thing i will use by them.
***PLEASE NOTE that these are just my personal opinions and i am in no way bashing any brands i havent mentioned and i am NOT promoting the brands i have mentioned. Use WHATEVER YOU LIKE because makeup is all personal opinions and personal techniques. What works for me may not work for you & please dont think the bigger the price tag the better the product. That is NOT the case at all. Just test out whatever catches your eye, drugstore or high end.
