high school sweethearts
Everyone dated that one guy in high school. The one you thought was totally perfect and couldn't do anything wrong. Meh, so much for that.
The other day, I was walking past a Bobbi Brown counter at the mall and realized I hadn't stopped by for quite some time. You see, Bobbi Brown was my favorite makeup brand in high school. I still love it, but I find myself branching out to explore new brands more and more. In a way, those original products are like high school boyfriends. It always seemed like they were the end-all-be-all... until you step back and realize there's more out there.
You'll notice a mix of higher-end products and drugstore brands. For me, it's important to splurge on the basics and cut back on things like lipgloss and mascara. Here's the breakdown:
Mascara: Lacome waterproof mascara —> Maybelline Great Lash
Concealer: Bobbi Brown concealer stick —> Make Up For Ever concealer
Bronzer: Bobbi Brown bronzer —> NARS Laguna bronzer
Perfume: Marc Jacobs Daisy —> Chloe Eau de Parfum
Lipgloss: Lacome Juicy Tube —> Forever21 sheer gloss
