Beauty Investments You Should Make Now

Smart Beauty 2 April 2016 | 0 Comments

Anyone who’s taken a trip to Sephora knows that costs on beauty products quickly adds up. The rows of brightly coloured polish, enchanting perfumes, and sparkling gloss are just beyond tempting. Sure, each product promises to solve your beauty woes, but it’ll come with a cost. Still, just like having investment pieces on your wardrobe, there are certain beauty investments that are also worth making.

  1. Skincare

Investing on your skincare as early as now will save you money and time later on. Start it by using a daily sunscreen, a moisturizer and an eye cream. Moisturizing your skin and protecting it from the sun will help you delay the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration later on. To get a more bang for your buck, invest on Korres’ skincare products to brighten, moisturize, and protect your skin in one go. For a sensitive skin, opt for Aveda’s line of all-sensitive skincare products to keep your skin in its tip-top shape sans any irritation.

  1. Daily Sunscreen

Apart from the protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays, sunscreen also offers long-lasting benefits for the skin. In fact, using sunscreen daily aids in avoiding sun spots, fading acne scars quicker, as well as prolonging wrinkles. Do some research and don’t be afraid to try out new formulas until you find a sunscreen you can comfortably wear daily. Singapore dermatologists also recommend purchasing a sunscreen made from natural ingredients since you’ll be rubbing a decent amount of it on your skin every day.

  1. Speedy Blow Dryer

For career-oriented women, time is money and that’s why spending so much time blow drying your hair every morning is a big no-no. But by investing on a high quality blow dryer, you’ll now be able to dry your hair faster and use your extra time for better things like getting an extra shuteye. Hair experts suggest purchasing a Harry Josh Pro Dryer to create a shiny at-home blowout in just half the time of your good old blow dryer.

  1. A Perfect Lipstick

Every woman needs a perfect lipstick that has a flattering shade, a long staying power, and could make her feel amazing. To find yours, spend enough time at makeup counters to check on the best lip colours and formulas available. If your choice ends up being pricy, save it for important presentations, job interviews, or other life events you’d want to add some extra polish on.

Also, don’t be afraid to ask for samples of certain lipsticks. This way, you’ll be able to test how the product stands against drinking, eating, and long periods of wear. So take home some samples, and never waste your money on a lippie you’ll never wear again.

  1. A Perfect Foundation and Concealer

Foundation and concealer are the base for makeup. Unfortunately, they’re also the easiest products to mess up colour-wise. Instead of running a trial and error test on drugstore products, head to a true beauty counter. There, you’ll find the perfect concealer and foundation shade for your complexion so you’ll never wind up with different colour on your face and neck.

Most speciality beauty shops and department stores give sample foundations and concealers to take home and try. Through this, you’ll be able to test the product’s colour in an outdoor lighting and see how long it stays. Taking a product sample at home will also help you learn what formulas are difficult for you to apply, or that the dewy look you admired in the store isn’t practical for a daily wear.

  1. Boar Bristle Hairbrush

Ever found yourself burning through bottles of hair creams, oils and anti-serums? Then put down those bottles and pick your hairbrush instead. Investing on a boar bristle hairbrush, such as Mason Pearson, is a good way to gently care for your hair and avoid breakage. Using the said brush helps you to redistribute your hair oils, thus naturally smoothing your strands.

Investing on some good clothing pieces in your wardrobe is as important as purchasing quality products for your beauty needs. So make sure to keep these beauty products in mind to ensure that you’ll make the right investments to solve all your beauty woes.
