Who here loves makeup- raise your hand!? If any of you are anything like me, then you melt at the sight of beautiful lipsticks and eye shadows as well as stunning shades of blushes and bronzers. And don’t even get me started on what happens when I come across a limited edition palette. I literally die. I can spend a solid 24 hours in an Ulta or Sephora just standing there drooling at all the different selections and mentally adding items to my wish-list. Great quality makeup always comes with a pretty hefty price tag unfortunately… and it all adds up really fast. Of course it all seems to run out at once, right? Then you end up spending over $200 just restocking on your favorite go-to shades. Well look no further… I am about to tell you about my favorite cosmetic line that won’t brake your bank what-so-ever!
I’m sure by now all of you have heard of the makeup brand Motives Cosmetics…. and if you haven’t, then shame on you! 😉 I am so honored to be one of their Pro Makeup Artists and be a team member of one of the hottest, most gorgeous cosmetic lines in the world! Celebrities- including Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria Parker, La La Anthony, Kimora Lee Simmons and Alicia Keys are absolutely in love with this makeup and firmly stand behind the brand. Motives is an anti-aging makeup and skincare line that is super affordable and does not test on animals. Pretty great, right?!!
Recently some of my girlfriends and I got together at my house for a “Makeup & Martini’s” party using all Motives Cosmetics. It was so much fun trying out all the different shades and playing with the makeup, creating soft eyes to smokey eyes as well as trying out different foundations to customize it with our skin tones. The great thing about Motives is that they have SO many shades to choose from because let’s face it… not everyone is the same. Some like bold, pops of color (like me!)… while others like soft, subtle shades. Here are some fun photos from the party:
Makeup parties are insanely fun to have if you are interested in trying out certain shades before purchasing them. Nothing is worse than when you get excited to try out a beautiful color you see in the store… only to get home and realize it looks terrible on you! Motives allows you to have at-home parties as well as on-line parties! (If you are interested in booking at Motives party, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org)

And might I add…. Motives Cosmetics is an exclusive makeup line that is manufactured by the same companies as Bobby Brown, MAC, Nars and Chanel? What does that tell you? Anyone that ever experiences this brand instantly falls in love with the quality of the makeup as well as the price! And on top of that… did you know that you can earn 2% cash back for every single purchase you make?! Hello00?!!! Shopping for your favorite makeup AND getting cash back at the same time?! Where do I sign up??!!
One of my favorite makeup brands that I religiously used to wear (and on occasion still do) is MAC… which we all know can be a little pricey. Motives has pretty much the SAME exact shades for a portion of the cost! Check out this chart showing the comparison of Motives vs. MAC!
