You must’ve heard the saying “beauty doesn’t come cheap.” And in this article, I really want to say that it isn’t true at all. Sure, you can spend a lot of money and be beautiful, but you can definitely do the same thing while on a budget.
Another thing that I want to point out is that being on a budget makes you focus more on yourself instead of things that you can buy. Being limited forces you to know yourself more and open to more creative ideas. Being on a budget shouldn’t be a limitation, rather a chance for you to improve yourself.
So, in this article, I have 5 incredible ways to showcase your beauty while on a budget. I hope these 5 tips can help you show the world your true beauty without putting a dent in your budget.
1. Use multi-purpose products
Do you know that, on average, women spend about $15,000 on makeup products in their lifetimes? That is a lot of money and not everyone could even afford that. There are so many makeup products being released every day, and if you buy each product for each use, imagine how much money you’re going to spend each month.
This is why you should use multi-purpose products instead. If you know which products to get, you can create your own spa without spending a lot of money. There are three main products that you can combine and turn into six products: moisturizing cream, face oil, and facial scrub. These three products can be used alone. Now combine moisturizer + scrub, facial scrub + facial oil, and facial oil + moisturizer, and then you have six products in total.
The combinations of these products will be more than enough to keep your face looks young and healthy. From the moment you wake up until before you go to sleep – all you need are those three main products.
2. Go natural with no make up
Every woman must’ve heard of this magical sentence in her life. But, how do you actually manage that? Believe it or not, with a little work you can look better than Taylor Swift without makeup on fairly easily. There are two important things that you must follow: healthy diet for a better skin and stick to a consistent skin care routine. Do these, and you’ll be confident even without make up on.
3. Do it yourself
This tip is still related to the first tip above. Instead of going out and pay other people to do stuff for you, why not do it yourself at home? I am not talking about giving yourself a haircut, although there are plenty of tutorials you can see on YouTube, it is still very difficult to do. But what about other beauty regimens such as manicures, facial mask recipes, hair treatments, or even spa?
The three combinations that I have mentioned above, can give you a great spa experience at home. For the manicure, you can buy quality salon products and do it yourself. Everything you need to know can be learned from the internet, so you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.
4. Don’t rely too much on professional help
Manicure, haircuts, hair treatments, etc. can be really expensive, especially if you do it weekly. A lot of women don’t even need to visit regularly, but they feel they need to because they’ve been doing it for so long. If you’ve been visiting the salon too often, you’ll feel insecure if you don’t go. But believe me, you don’t need to visit that often.
Cut back on your visits and plan them accordingly. See it for yourself, what’s going to happen if you don’t visit regularly, can you still feel confident? If the answer is yes, then you really to visit less.
5. Try sleeper brands
I know that famous brands give you comfort, knowing that these brands are probably going to work well for your skin. But these popular brands are all very expensive, not to mention some of them are going to run out in less than a month.
This is why you need to do your research on beauty products. Try looking for some brands that not many people know about but have good reviews. Some brands are just much cheaper than others but still work the same. Many drugstores or supermarkets also offer their own products, which are much cheaper.
6. Level up your fashion
Beauty and fashion go hand in hand. These two things are inseparable and if you haven’t been dressing up properly, it is time to start. Seeking out inspirations for your outfit of the day is very easy nowadays, you can use Instagram or Pinterest as your sources.
You can have more fun by experimenting and getting out of your comfort zone. Maybe try flashy outfits once in a while or wear new accessories. Look for hats that compliment the shape of your face and your hairstyle. The possibilities are endless, and you can definitely find what suits you while on a budget.
Showcasing your beauty should be affordable
Being broke because you use your money for beauty products is a thing of the past. It is time to be beautiful without breaking a sweat thinking about your personal finances. Keep improving and show everyone how beautiful you are.
