Beauty on a Budget

Beauty on a Budget
By: Cheryl L. True

You probably do not have enough money or can’t spend thousands of dollars just to look pretty. But that does not mean you are doomed to look bad forever. You can look fabulous even on a tight budget. It all boils down to  how you use the money. In this case, you should use it wisely.
Beauty experts say that the secret to staying beautiful without spending a fortune is to discover what works best for you and where to buy the things you need. To stand out in the crowd and look great, here are some things you should keep in mind:
Do not waste money on branded products. Realize that off-brand products can give you the same classy look at a lower price. Fashion trends evolve and change constantly so do not make the mistake of spending big bucks on branded clothes and accessories that may not be “in” tomorrow. Ignore fashion trends for this can eat up a big chunk of your budget. Instead go for your own individual style. People will notice and like you more if you are unique instead of being a boring clone of every fashion magazine in the newsstands.
Watch out for sales and sale items. This is a great time to get hold of good clothes for half the price. Again, do not imitate what you see in others. Select clothes that are interchangeable and can be worn anytime. The golden rule to follow is to buy something that you will actually wear. If you buy a ton of sale items and store them all in the closet, you are wasting your money. 

Always pay attention to your hair. It needs lots of attention to make you look good. Layered hair is good for many people so see if it suits you as well. To keep your hair shiny and manageable, wash it with cold or slightly cold water. Get hold of a good shampoo and conditioner. Daily washing can make your hair dry but if you feel dirty do not hesitate to take a shower. Buy shoes that look good with three or five outfits. Don’t buy shoes that you can only use in a rock concert.
