5 Tips for Looking Great…Without Spending (Much) Money
Let’s be honest: there’s a reason all those celebrities and socialites always look a million dollars. It’s because they have a million dollars to spend on their beauty routines! Most of us, however, are not quite so lucky. We have to juggle our beauty expenses with all the other costs of life, like paying rent, paying bills, and all those cocktails we have when we look our best. Just because you’re not a millionaire doesn’t mean you have to settle for less, though. You can still look amazing without breaking the bank.
Repurpose Old Clothes
If you’ve been buying clothes over the past few years, then you’ll have plenty of items in your wardrobe to choose from. The problem is, they might have gone out of fashion. Instead of letting these items just gather dust in your wardrobe, why not get out the needle and thread and see if you can make them look like new on your own? Take a look at trendsandideas.com/40-mindblowing-ways-to-repurpose-old-clothing/ for ideas. You might be able to put together a whole new outfit without buying a single new item!
Avoid the Salon
We can comfortably spend a month’s worth of disposable income just by visiting the salon to take care of our hair. But you don’t have to go: you can do everything you’d pay for at the salon right from your own home. Take a look at the pros and cons of the Flowbee haircutting system at http://hairclippercenter.net/flowbee-haircutting-system-review/: you might find that it’s the perfect solution for having your hair look good without paying top prices. Also, who says you need top end shampoo to keep your hair looking silky and smooth? Advocates of the no-poo (no shampoo) movement say baking soda and vinegar works better – and costs a fraction of the price.
Ditch the Gym
Sometimes it’s not about how good our clothes, hair, and skin look – it’s about how toned our body is. As such, you might think that a gym membership is an essential part of looking your best, but it’s not. You can easily get by without slugging it out at the gym by doing exercises that are completely free. Take a look at https://www.buzzfeed.com/carolynkylstra/youtube-fitness for a list of the best YouTube fitness channels. You’ll be fit and toned, and still, have your cash in your purse.
Prioritise the Makeup Bag
There’s no getting around the makeup essentials. But here’s the thing: many people go far beyond the essentials, picking up more makeup than they know what to do with, thinking that they’ll be an occasion somewhere along the line where it’s called for. In truth, you can get by with just the basics. Learn how to do a lot with little and you’ll go a long way.
When In Doubt, Buy Dark
And finally: when you do need to buy clothes but don’t have the budget to get the very best, buy dark clothing. It’ll cover up that the item is inexpensive, and dark clothes have a tendency to look great even when cheap.
