1.What's the influence the following have on your beauty purchases. What impact do they have on what you think about different brands or products?

a)    Family and friends
I think that friends and family have a great influence on my buying habits when it comes to buying brands and makeup products. For example, my mother is a great influence when it comes to purchasing skin care products such as Lancome, Shisheido, Missha as the results are amazing and I can see why she uses them daily. 
Friends also influence me to buy products because as we get older, we are more prone to wrinkles, breakouts and so forth if we don't take care of the skin. I personally believe that we should take care of our faces with good quality products and it's truly worth every cent to buy good quality products. 

 b)    Online and social media
Depends - sometimes social media and online facts, articles, websites can be inaccurate so I tend not to be highly influenced as much as I do with my friends and family. I think over time, there will be a standstill influence with makeup social media because to be honest, everyone's skin is different. Not everyone has the same skin, we have different genetics and we get different results through the application of beauty products. Make up products are somewhat influential over the Internet because it's designed to beautify your appearance whereas skin care products only work effectively if the chemicals of the product are designed to absorb well with your face. However, Facebook and Instagram are my mostly used social media to gain more insight into beauty news. 

 c)    Magazines
I tend to be influenced through the magazines when there are make up products which show the "Top 10 buys" or "Top 1- Worth trying out" articles. From there, I am influenced by what I read and the visual appearance of the bottle. My research not only stops from reading a magazine, I would then have a tendency to go online and search forums and articles for reviews of the product such as Makeup Alley, Beauty Haven or even Facebook.
