Shop Cosmetic & Skincare Products Like A Pro!
New to the beauty and makeup? Welcome to the world! Shopping for beauty items at physical stores can be very confusing if you are new. Not only confusing but time-consuming as well. There are so many products with the same purpose that you may end up scratching your head. See, the problem with retail shops is that you have to move along different stores to buy different luxury beauty items. Also, who has the time or energy to rush to the shop when you run out of a product?
However, the game of shopping for beauty products has changed now, thanks to the digital world. Whether you buy online or offline, there’s no limit to what you can buy. If you don’t find a product in the retail shop, you can always look online to buy that item. But with so many options to choose from, which one will you pick? Here’s a comprehensive list of buying beauty items from online shopping.
Use App/Websites With Innovative Technology
Why use mobile and apps for buying beauty products online? We get it; most beauty shopping websites aren’t useful at all. It has so many brands in it, buying products becomes all the more confusing. For example, if you want to buy a foundation that suits your skin tone and skin type, using just search filters won’t help. Don’t worry! The time has changed! Now more and more websites are using AI and face augmenting programs to help you see what a particular makeup product will look like on your skin without you needing to apply it physically.
Look At The Reviews Of The Product
Before buying any makeup or cosmetic products, you should read the reviews first. However, not all reviews are genuine. Most of them are paid reviews and have no truths to them at all. Sites like eBay, Amazon, etc., are full of paid reviews, so don’t trust what you read. I’d suggest you individually search the product and read reviews from the original website of the brand. Another thing you can do is use help from real people from Facebook and Instagram and ask them if the products are worth your money. There are many Facebook groups dedicated to helping you out with your beauty-related questions. Most of the time, their answers are honest and reliable.
Pinterest Knows A Lot Than You Think
We look at Pinterest for a lot of reasons! One of such reasons is that most people pin information related to a particular product. For example, how the product looks on them, the pros and cons, etc. If you are trying to find additional info, you should try and look at the pins and boards. This will help you decide whether you want the product or not.
Try Reading The INCI List - It’s Fun!
We love the INCI list, don’t we? For those who don’t know what the INCI list is, it’s International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients. This list basically has a collection of all cosmetic ingredients, both beneficial and toxic, so that consumers can take a quick look at the ingredients found in the cosmetic and skincare products. The INCI list provides useful information about the ingredients like the comedogenic level, irritation level, good and bad aspects, and many more. You can look it up in your search engine and type “INCI decoder.” You will get numerous decoders that are free to use and provide accurate interpretation.
Keep Your Face Free Of Makeup During A Skincare Analysis
If you are using an app or website to find personalized makeup or skincare products for your face, it’s best to go makeup-less altogether. Doing so will help find the exact result and name of the products you are looking for. Having your makeup on can prevent the AI from constructing a thorough analysis of your skin tones and skin concerns.
Learn About The Undertone Of Your Skin
Knowing not only about your skin tones but the undertones is crucial if you want your makeup to seamlessly blend into your skin. For example, if you have cooler undertones (blue, red, or pink), you won’t look like a foundation with warm undertones. The shade won’t match your skin tone, and that can create an unflattering look. Same for concealers, highlighters, bronzers, etc. So, be sure to know which undertones you are. People with warmer undertones have yellow, gold, or peach tint to their skin whereas people with cooler undertones have green, blue or pink tint to their skin. For neutral people, it’s the blend of warm and cool undertones. People with neutral undertones are lucky as both the warm and cool undertone products look flattering on them.
Sign Up For Reward Programs
If you are a regular shopper, you may know that many companies offer reward programs for their regular customers. If you don’t know about this, you are missing out on all the fun. The reward-based programs work by generating points for you whenever you make a purchase. The more you get rewards, the higher the chance of getting discounts and giveaways. You may also get VIP cards with which you can purchase a product with reward points. That way, you don’t have to spend every single dime when buying items.
