As a beauty blogger and makeup lover, I spend the majority of my time reading about, watching videos on, and playing with makeup. I live for it.
Loving makeup can get expensive. Although I don’t consider myself a gullible shopper, beauty influencers play a big role in impacting what I buy. Often times, I think that a Beauty Guru Made Me Do It.
A Beauty Guru Made Me Do it – Cosmetics
Given how much I love watching beauty content, it is common to feel that “a beauty guru made me do it”. Beauty lends itself well to influencer-driven purchases since viewers or fans can see products in-action.

I’ve been eyeing the Charlotte Tilbury brand for years. However, it was Jessica Braun’s brand review that made me more eager to try the brand. I wanted to try nearly everything Jessica talked about in her video.
I debated whether or not I should include the Good Sport eyeshadow paletteon this list since I’ve been drooling over this palette since it was first released last Fall. However, Julia Mazzucato rave about the Good Sport formula I finally made the purchase.
When I saw Jackie Aina demo a look using the Soda Pop Palette, I knew that I needed it. I jumped at the opportunity to buy this palette during a steep promotion period.
Pinky Rose Cosmetics Exotic Peacock Palette

Angelica Nyqvist speaks so highly of Pinky Rose Cosmetics. My heart raced when I saw the gorgeous blue-purple theme of the Exotic Peacock Palette. I have few vibrant, blue matte shades. This palette filled a gap in my collection.

Luxe Rose Gold Eyeshadow Brushes

Shout out to Melissa Alatorre for influencing this holiday purchase. After a few months of comparing Sigma and Luxie brushes, I purchased brushes from Luxie. Not only are the brushes super cute, but I purchased them using a discount code.
Camo Seamless Leggings & Bra, Lounge Leggings & Cropped Sweatshirt, House of Marley Headphones
Gym Shark| Leggings, Tips, Sports Bras
I had not heard about Gym Sharkbefore Melissa featured the brand in her videos and social posts. Knowing that she petite like I am, I needed to try Gymshark.
House of Marley | Positive Vibration Wireless Headphones
Technically a beauty guru didn’t make me buy these headphones. A minimalist, eco-conscious YouTuber influenced me.
When my Beats headphones finally kicked died, I purchased the House of Marley Wireless headphones. These headphones significantly cheaper than my Beats’ headphones. Also, the brand is more eco-friendly.
Edit: I regret that a beauty guru made me do it in this case. These headphones only lasted a few months before the bluetooth featured stopped working.
