Being beauty-conscious while sticking to your budget is always a struggle
It’s important to know which beauty products you can save on when you hit the stores and which ones are worth splurging on. Certain products are worth their higher price tags because they might be better quality or last a few years.
Knowing which products are worth the extra money and which ones aren’t before you start shopping can keep your budget and credit card happy. Our number one rule of thumb is that if you’re going to be wearing it every day, go ahead and splurge. Here are six beauty products worth investing in the next time you go shopping.
For full coverage, pay the full price tag. Foundation can be tricky to purchase because there are so many shades and coverage options. Head to a specialty beauty store or to your favorite department store to speak with a beauty expert. They’ll be able to help find a foundation that’s an exact match to your skin tone and that provides the right amount of coverage for you. When you start using a higher-priced foundation, you might notice that it matches better, applies smoother, and lasts much longer.
2. Everyday Eyeshadow
Pricier eyeshadow tends to last longer, are more pigmented, and are easier to blend. A cheaper palette will work in a pinch (like if you forgot all of your makeup on a trip), but they won’t hold up like the more expensive types.
We recommend splurging on the shades you wear a lot, like neutral colors. If you want to go wild and explore using bright blue or neon green shadow, go ahead and grab a cheap one to experiment with. Then, if you find a color you really love, you can buy a similar high-end version later.
3. Serums and moisturizer
When it comes to skincare, splurge! Expensive products are most likely made with higher quality ingredients and a lot fewer fillers than their less expensive counterparts. If you’re looking for a serum or moisturizer that targets something specific, like signs of aging or a dull skin tone, then you definitely don’t want to skimp here.
High-end skincare brands typically have more product options with the right ingredients to help target your specific skincare concerns.
Cheaper perfumes can smell, well, cheap. They typically have great top notes, but they fall short with the mid and base notes.
You’ll definitely get your money’s worth if you invest in a perfume you love because you’ll most likely wear it all the time. Higher-priced fragrances will last longer on your skin because the brands pay attention to every note in the fragrance, and they are usually made with better quality ingredients.
Cheap bronzers can look very unnatural and have less variety in shades and undertones. When you buy a high-end bronzer, you’re paying for a better shade for your skin tone, smoother application, and amazing blend-ability.
If you’re willing to invest in a bronzer, you have your pick of the formula. There are liquid, cream, and powder products. You also have more matte options. Many cheaper bronzers have a lot of shimmers, so if that isn’t the look you want, you’ll need to invest in a high-quality product. If you have a little bit of extra room in your budget, consider splurging on other face makeup too, like highlighters and setting powder.
How many pairs of tweezers have you gone through in your lifetime? Probably too many to count. Once your tweezers stop working, you probably toss them in a drawer and then just get another pair. But, if you invest in one great pair of tweezers, you’ll never have to do that again.
