DISCOVER: Beauty Brands - One Stop Shop to All Things BeautyMonday, March 21, 2016
When I purchase makeup, I tend to do it in person. Due to blogging and conducting product reviews, I sometimes receive beauty products in the mail but for the most part I shop for them in person. I buy jewelry and clothes online, so I don't know why it has never occurred to me to shop for makeup online! Beauty Brands is changing the way you shop for products. Their not just a salon, but they're a retail shop as well. The team behind Beauty Brands handpicks the brands that are sold there and are a mix of well-known labels to independent ones. If you're lucky enough to live near a Beauty Brands salon & spa, I encourage you to go in for the full experience! They have several locations in Houston and around the country. For my review, I focused on their eCommerce website! You can watch the full review here or embedded below!
To test out the website, I received a gift card to put together a makeup look. I decided to do a day to night look! I don't really wear heavy makeup, unless there's a special event. Heavy makeup to me involves contouring, foundation, and all that stuff. I definitely don't have time to do any of that to go to work in the mornings, so my daily makeup routine for work is minimal. It consists of neutral colors for eye shadows and lip gloss. I go to a lot of after work events, and I have very little time to enhance my makeup from day engineer to fashionista. I elevate my day makeup by adding eyeliner, mascara and a va-va-boom lipstick shade! I searched for all of these on the Beauty Brands website, and curated a day to look night for under $100. There was enough left over to even purchase a makeup bag.
The website offers everything from makeup to curling irons, to even products for men! I sometimes feel that men aren't included enough in the beauty conversation. They have beauty problems just like us females. A cool feature on their website is you can sign up to have a product shipped to you again down the line. Let's say you order eyeliner and know you'll use it up within 2 months? They'll automatically ship you the eyeliner in 2 months! Genius! It really cuts down on the time to go to the store for it. They have a variety of brands, and you can see my picks for my day to night look below:
