Hello, I just wanted to share a short video with you which echoes similar thoughts I have been having recently. Due to social media being the force that it is every few weeks a new makeup trend blasts forth - contouring, strobing, clown contouring, strong brows, Kylie Jenner's 90s lip - and everyone goes crazy for it. But the truth is that all these trends are entirely fabricated, they are all simply recycled from different areas of the beauty world, such as drag or theatre, and occasionally named something different.
It pains me to say this but the beauty world is actually quite unoriginal, in terms of the cosmetic brands. They have a sheep-like mentality and what urges me to say this is that so many well-known makeup brands have recently come out with Artist palettes. First, Make Up Forever, then Anastasia Beverly Hills and now Laura Mercier. The same thing happened with liquid lipsticks, as soon a one brand makes a success of something the rest chug them out. I just don't see the point in imitating products from other brands as potential customers could just opt for the original. The least you can do is choose a unique name so at least people don't get confused between brands it seems so stupid to me.
Thank you for reading, let me know if you would like a comparison between the three artist palettes and which one looks best. Hope you are having a wonderful week, please a comment with your thoughts below and share any future suggestions you have for posts. Take care.
