I was inspired to write this post by Emily Schuman over at Cupcakes and Cashmere. Emily shared her beauty philosophy and a breakdown of where she saves and splurges in terms of beauty routines.
Here is a breakdown of my current beauty spending philosophy:
I have never done hair color at -home and I don’t think I ever will. I’ve heard way too many horror stories about things gone awry. As for haircuts, I like getting a professional haircut regularly. A great haircut makes styling at home much easier. I go for facials regularly because I like taking care of my skin and making sure that it’s in tip-top shape. It’s very important for me to feel confident in public without any makeup on. I discovered the beauty and luxury of facials last year and have not looked back since. As for eyebrows, I get them done regularly and don’t touch them in between sessions. I never learned how to shape and maintain my eyebrows – perhaps I’ll learn how to do so one day.
I’m really low-maintenance when it comes to styling my hair. If you see me on a regular day, my hair is either fully down or up in a jaw clip. I like air-drying and am still learning how to do a blowout at home. While I love the luxury of blowouts and massages, I can’t justify the pricetag of frequent ones. For body hair removal, I shave at home. As for nails, I love using my hands for day-to-day tasks and a manicure is simply too fussy for me. I get my nails done maybe once a year (if even) as a birthday treat.
