Each of us have makeup products that we are obsessed with. Some of which are budget-friendly, and others that are a little more expensive. We also each have a selection of beauty tools - brushes, sponges, and so on, that we swear by. Of course, our favorite products and tools won’t last forever, and need to be replaced on a regular basis. The problem is when it comes to investing in new products and tools, it can be hard to know how to go about it. Do you stick to the same trusted brands, or do you take a leap of faith and try something new?
To help you restock your beauty bag with all the best products and tools, here are some handy hacks to take note of.
Ask for suggestions
Even if you love the products and tools you’ve always used, it doesn’t hurt to try new things. So before you restock your makeup bag, ask for some suggestions from your friends and other makeup lovers. Perhaps there’s a new tool or product that’s taking the beauty industry by storm like the Beauty Blender did. Or maybe there’s a new foundation that would suit your skin type perfectly. Ask other people what they use and see whether there’s anything that sounds like it could be a good fit for you. You never know, you might just stumble across a new product or tool that you can’t live without.
By keeping up to date with all the most recent beauty news, you can ensure that you’re aware of any new products or tools. The best way to keep up to date with news is to follow all the best beauty blogs. As well as by following all of your favorite beauty brands on social media. It’s also worth downloading their apps, as this will make it even easier to keep up to date with any new products or tools. If there’s a certain product you want to replace or are in need of, such as a new lipstick, take the time to read up about all the best ones. Or, say, you’ve heard a lot of good things about certain makeup brush sets, take the time to delve a little deeper and find the ones that will work best for you.
Visit a beauty counter
A great way to get an idea of what products and tools work well for you is by visiting your local beauty counters. Most department stores have a range of beauty counters in them; that offer makeovers and product testing. Take the time to go along and see what products and tools are available, to help you get an idea of which brands you prefer. By testing out a range of products and tools, you can get an idea of what works best for you and what you would like to use on a daily basis.
