Product Potential! By Perryn Acacia

Product Potential! By Perryn Acacia

Are you using your beauty products to their full potential? If you want to step up your beauty game while saving money, you need to learn how to utilize a product to its full potential.

Let me explain.

Typically, when you walk into a cosmetic store the beauty specialist will try to upsell you on products. You might want a lipstick, and so you’ll be sold complimenting products to go with the lipstick. In the world of makeup, there are no rules.

You can almost do your full face with that one lipstick, if need be. Using the same toned lip stick as a cream blush, which can create a stunning monochromatic look. Or if the lip product is eye safe, using it as an eyeliner. My favorite products for creating a liner look are the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks, they are highly pigmented and last all day.

For the look below, I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Crocodile Tears as a green based liner. Followed up with MAC Cosmetics Spell Binder Magnetic eyeshadow in ‘Swing on a Star,’ which I mixed with water to get an intense metallic effect. I also love to use this same product for a bold brow or mixed to use as a lipstick. I love this look for Halloween, it’s mysterious, dark and intense. I only needed two products to do create this. I want to challenge you to use your products to their full potential. Please tag me in your looks @perr.acacia, I would love to see your creations!
