Here’s the thing—when it comes to beauty, everyone has a different beat. A makeup look that one person loves might be totally unappealing to another, and a specific product that completely changes one person’s hair, makeup, or skincare game might be a complete failure for someone else. It’s all par for the course in the world of beauty, and while I’m far, far from an expert, I’ve certainly been around the block when it comes to trying, experimenting with, and yes, completely failing at certain beauty trends and product profiles. So I decided to write about it.
The below definitely isn’t gospel, but it does outline my personal experiences and preferences as someone who works with and learns about beauty on the daily. Plus, as I’m lucky enough to interview and pick the minds of some of the best dermatologists, makeup artists, and estheticians, hairstylists, and colorists on a weekly basis, I have acquired some legitimate knowledge over time.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to try and experiment with formulas and trends to see what works and resonates, but If you’d like to know what’s failed me in the world of beauty and what I love instead, keep reading—my blatantly honest reviews, suggestions, and opinions lie ahead.
