Ever been complimented that “you look like a million bucks.”? I know personally that when my husband says that expression to me, I am on top of the world! Who says girls should spend a fortune to look fabulous? Who says you have to use up a huge chunk of your earnings just to score the best beauty buys?
This week, I will list several makeup products along with easy application tips on what products women can scrimp on. These following beauty tips are for anyone on a budget. With prices of almost all products going up and worldwide economy crashing, we cannot afford to purchase products, which do not suit our needs or satisfy our desires. We must make sure that we are buying beauty products that are worth it. So read on, if you are interested in staying beautiful without having to spend so much.
My good friend and Ziba’s Artistic Director Oscar Naranjo educated me that all lipsticks or lip-glosses have a general standardized quality. This means no matter what the brand of the lipstick or lip-gloss is, they are all the same identical quality! A tube that costs less can give you the same effect as one, which costs thousands of dollars.
Tips: spend more time testing the countless finishes and colors in the beauty counters until you find the right one that flatters your skin tone. Never test the lipstick on your hand to see if it complements your skin tone, as this trick never works. Try it on your lips! It is known as lipstick anyway, not “handstick”.
There are many ways to experiment with eye shadow. You can play around with different colors and textures (from shimmer to matte). A word of caution: Don’t shell out too much money buying the latest shades as eye trends change rapidly. By not spending too much, you won’t feel guilty about what you spent if a trendy look or color goes out of style.
Tip: Invest in eye shadow palettes to get a variety of shades at a cheaper price.
When you’re deciding on whether to use a blush or bronzer, the secret is simple for that perfect flush: find the right formula and shade that works for your skin type. If your complexion is dry, go for the cheek tints or cream blush for a fresh dewy finish. But if you have oily skin, opt for powder blush since this helps absorbs excess grease.
Mascara only lasts about three to six months as bacteria easily contaminate it. it is wiser to buy an affordable product that gives you fabulous results rather than opting for expensive ones which may go bad if you don’t use it regularly.
I hope these quick tips about makeup and their application are helpful. Always remember you exude beauty when you have confidence in yourself! No one will be able to tell that you are using products, which are not pricey as long as you know how to apply them properly.
