When building your own makeup collection, you’ll find yourself tempted to shop for popular celebrity brands. They are everywhere these days and every celebrity seems to have one, but can you even afford these pricy products as a college student?
Buying the Name?
When you’re considering buying a product from a celebrity beauty brand, take a moment to consider if you’re buying a good product or just a “big” name. Celebrity makeup often tends to be pricier, and you should only invest in it if the quality matches the price.
Don’t Believe the Hype
There’s a lot of hype every time a celebrity starts their own brand, but you should do your own research instead of believing the hype. Read reviews online and see what the beauty experts are saying about the newly-launched brands and products, but be wary of paid partnerships on social media.
Don’t Go Overboard
No matter how much you love Ariana Grande or Selena Gomez, there’s no need to buy a whole bundle of their makeup products right away. This rule applies to every brand you haven’t tested yet—start things small, with the products that you really need before moving on to bigger and more expensive things.
