When you're getting ready for your big day, (or even just for your day-to-day), and want to try out some new beauty products, the number of options out there can seem extremely overwhelming. What should you splurge on? What should you save on?
If you're new to the beauty product world and have suddenly decided to up your game, the sheer amount of what goes into a "normal" beauty routine can be daunting at best. Toners, eye creams, exfoliators, face oils, night creams, masks, concealer, foundation, brow pencils, setting sprays, liquid vs pencil liners—the list goes on, and on, and on.
So when it comes to choosing the products you're going to bring into your day-to-day beauty routine, it's ok to look beyond the big name-brands for some of your picks (we are firm believers in having a mix of brands in your beauty bag). And what better place to look for the more under-the-radar companies than Etsy? There are some amazing vendors on Etsy creating small batch, handmade, and organic products out there with lots of TLC, and of course we wanted to share some of our top picks! Read on and check out these shops, ASAP.
