5 Things Makeup Artists Wish You Stop Doing

As with any job, there are things about your job that you love, and there are things about your job that you hate. And anyone who has worked in customer service, retail, or any service industry, you know the one thing you can end up hating the most about your job…is the people you interact with on a daily basis.

I love being a makeup artist, don’t get me wrong. However, the customer isn’t always right (sorry to hit you with that reality), and often times they’re annoying AF. After years of providing makeup services, and lamenting with other artists, I know I’m not alone in my sentiments that I’m about to share with  you.

Here are 5 things all makeup artists wish you would stop doing.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks

It’s that time of year again, and to be very honest it almost passed me by! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always been a staple for me. This is the time of year where I buy all of my favorite things and prep for the fall. And even if you’re not planning on buying sweaters and boots, now is the perfect time to try out some new beauty products or get some of your favorites at a reduced price.

One tip I can give you is, work with one associate! They’re all desperate for sales (trust me I’ve worked at Nordstrom) and it benefits you to work with one associate and just give them a list, and let them grab everything for you. Put them to work, it’s their job! 

If you’re not sure what things to get from the Beauty Exclusives portion of the Anniversary Sale, I’ve got you covered! I went through every single item (yes I really did) and pulled the best buys.

Be sure to check and see if any brand you are interested in has a gift with purchase (GWP). Many brands do and they will have spending minimums for each. Check out the GWP list here

See my list of must haves below. Continue reading “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks”

10 Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

Over the years I have tried what seems like thousands of products, and despite what some people may think, I am by no means a product junkie. I tend to stick to things that I like, and things that work. I like tried and true products and don’t deviate much.

There are times when I want to try new products, but I generally won’t allow myself to do so until I have run out of another product that is similar. ( I don’t like too many things around). However, sometimes I just can’t shake a certain product, and I have to stop trying to make fetch happen and stick to what I know.

Some products there is just no replacement for me, and nothing else will do. Like, don’t even bring me a substitute, it just won’t work. So here are 10 beauty products I simply cannot live without!
