My Favorite Resources For All Things Beauty
When it comes to getting information on beauty, it can get overwhelming quickly. That's why I'm here to give you some tips on how to get the information you need without the struggle.
#1 - Local Professionals
I'm lucky enough to know several local cosmetologists and aestheticians, so if I ever have a question about skincare or haircare, they're usually able to answer it. If you don't know any, search for some online and send them an email asking if they're willing to answer a few questions. Chances are if you're polite to them, they'll be more than willing to help educate you.
Want a new foundation, but don't know our shade? Worry no more! The Foundation Matrix offers you side-by-side comparisons of foundations so all you have to do is enter your shade in your current foundation and you'll be able to find a match in the foundation you want to get!
#3 - The Swatch Gallery
Want to know if two lipsticks or eyeshadows are dupes? Check here! You can select swatches of products and compare them next to each other to see how similar they are.
#4 - Influenster
Influenster is not only a cool way to get free stuff, it's also a site full of reviews on all sorts of products, both beauty related and not. I love to review things on here, as well as ask questions about products, because I often get answers within a couple days and those answers tend to be relevant and thorough. Plus, you can get free stuff!
#5 - Friends and Family
When in doubt, ask your friends and family for tips. They may know more than you think and their intentions will more often than not be good. They could even have product recommendations that would never have occurred to you otherwise!
