So much time, money and energy are spent on finding great beauty products. Wouldn’t it be much more simple if we could find better ways to discover great beauty products? Any gal who has spent their life wearing makeup, moisturizers, face masks, and other concoctions they discovered on Pinterest wants to know what the best stuff out there is. Here’s are some useful tips on how to discover great beauty products!
- Ask Your Friends
Ask those closest to you what they spend their pennies on, and they will likely have a thing or two to tell you about their beauty products: which to love and which to steer clear from. When it comes to beauty products it can be difficult to get an unbiased and honest review, so asking an honest friend is a great way to find out which makeup on you looks best, what moisturizer is a must and which lipstick color is in right now.
- Your Own Experiences
The best way to discover what is best for you may be to just try it for yourself, and for a long period of time. Experience and time will tell you what the best beauty products are for your situation. Blogs, friends, and appealing ads may all have their 2 cents to say about a product, but you just have to try it for yourself and pay attention to what you like and don’t like. Then, you can take this information and perfect on it for your next beauty shopping spree.
- Brand and Blogger Referrals
Personal experience and that of your friend group are a key way to finding out what great beauty products are out there. Yet another way to find out is through beauty brands, blogs, and influencer referrals. Really, any referral from someone who is in the know with beauty products can be a great source for finding the best beauty products. Many companies and bloggers know what’s out first, and sometimes even before the product launches or makes it to the shelves they will tell you in a newsletter or blog post. Following blogs and reading beauty, fashion and skincare themed articles, as well as subscribing to newsletters is a great way to discover great beauty products when they are fresh on the market.
- Go Sample Crazy!
Using the term “best” when referring to beauty products can be relative. What works for someone else may not be the best option for what your needs are and vice versa. Trying new products for yourself (without paying an arm and a leg for them) is a great way to find out what you love and what you don’t. Many companies like Sephora, Ulta, and online brands trying to promote their product will provide samples, so if you are shopping in store don’t be afraid to ask to try a sample or two (or five!) of products you may be interested in. If you are shopping online, you can contact the customer service department and ask them for samples, and they will more than likely have some to send you.
