Thoughts And Whatnots: Your Personal Make-Up Line

Good morning friends!

Today as you can tell by my title, I’m bringing back my Thoughts and Whatnot’s Series. I forgot how much I love these but coming up with enticing topics is tough. I always want to make sure that I pick something where people will want to jump at the opportunity to share their opinion. So I came up with a fun topic especially with all my beauty/make-up lovers and writers out there.

Now, I have to give credit where credit’s due, this post was inspired by a vlogger that I came across a little while ago @sophdoesnails. Don’t quote me on this but from what I gather, Soph not only YouTubes for her job but she’s also under contract with Makeup Revolution where I think she produces 1 video a week for them. And through Makeup Revolution they let her come out with her own little make-up line. Really cool! Right? Soph ended up coming out with her own eye shadow and highlighter pallet which she named SophX and is now sold in stores and online. Be sure to check her social media for details.

So all of that lead me to this-

If you could choose 1 make-up product to produce AND brand, what would you pick and what would you name your brand?

Just thinking about this question gets me all excited because how stinkin’ awesome would that be???

I would definitely choose a

highlighter pallet


I don’t use highlighter every day but there’s something so magical and fabulous about highlighter that I love. When I’m feeling like I want to be a little bit extra, that nice glowy sheen makes me feel like a million bucks. I get the same satisfaction from red lips and high heels.

Naming my product is a hard question. I definitely want to incorporate my name in there somehow- my initial thought would be ‘xo, JJ‘ which I do like since it’s my signature for my blog. So if I was to decide right here, right now I’d stick with it. But it would definitely have to be in some crazy flashy gold cursive fancy font. How many adjectives can I put in one sentence? Lol.

Okay, now it’s your turn!!

    I adore this series! I would probably do Ankhoryou and it would be metallic shimmery shades of blues and green nail polishes, or mermaid tears (another name for seaglass) and it would be shimmery green and blue eye shadow palettes. Not sure which but now you have my entrepreneur mind working! ;p ❤

    A highlighting palette is a really good pick! 🙂 Do you know what shade you’d want and undertone? LOL
    It’s a little hard for me to even think of this because I love so many products. I think I would love to make a makeup palette–eyeshadows, blush, highlighter and a satin or matte liquid lipstick. Definitely naming AyRGalaxy and it would absolutely have a galaxy background! In terms of names for each thing, I have yet to figure it out lol.

    Your highlighter palette idea sounds incredible! This is probably the weirdest idea but I’ve always wanted to produce an eyeshadow palette is named after monumental points in history hahah. It would be so cool to work with a makeup brand and produce something of your own..xx

  6. Great topic! It’s one of my life goals to have my own makeup range with a company, I’ve already decided I want a ‘makeup by Jennie’ line in collaboration with Smashbox!! Although that could change since I’ve started using ABH glow kits- I may have to collab with them since I’m completely the same as you (obvs #bloggingtwinnie) if I could only have one product it would definitely be a highlighter palette!! Because hello?? Highlighter is life! You can never have too much glow. I can just imagine your palette now, I think the name you have chosen for it is perfect and I love the sound of the fancy gold font. Simple yet classy, elegant and effective! I would probably do something similar and just logo it something like J, x but like I said- I already planned it’s going to be the simple to the point makeup by Jennie 😂 Xx
