- Beauty Balm Creams and Tinted Moisturizers – If you’re like me, I hardly ever have time to moisturize, apply primer, then apply foundation. Then I discovered beauty balm creams. These all-in-one products provide moisture, sunscreen, vitamins, and a smoothing color in one.
- Eyebrow Shaping – My cosmetologist recently told me some crucial beauty wisdom – a shaped eyebrow can frame your face and make up for a lack of makeup. Get your brows shaped by a professional; it’s not expensive and will last for a long time. Cosmetology School has information about the careers and education of different cosmetology professionals.
- Rag Curlers – Perhaps you already used rag curlers (bits of cloth that you wind your hair around) as a kid. I had never heard of them until recently and have found that they’re a remarkably easy and cheap way to give my hair a nice shape. They are free to make and won’t damage your hair like heat styling. Just put them in at night and sleep in them and you’re good to go.
- All-in-One Sticks – A friend turned me on to a product called Nars Multiple. It’s a cream stick that can work as blush, eye shadow and lipstick and I absolutely love it. I can throw it in my purse and not worry about freshening up later in the day.
- Learn the Skills – If you’re struggling with particular beauty areas (applying eyeliner or getting ready for a night out) I encourage you to browse the hundreds of tutorials on YouTube or to take a beauty class. If you’re interested in earning a full cosmetology degree, check out the Guide to Online Schools.
