Six signs you need to simplify your beauty routine
Do you really, really, really like beauty products? Don’t we all?! But when you’re a beauty fanatic, it’s easy to fall victim to the “too-many-products syndrome”.
So, if you currently have four mascaras on the go, pack an entire make-up kit for a beach holiday, or pass up time with friends to pamper yourself, there’s a good chance you’re guilty of overdoing it in the beauty department.
Taking pride in your appearance is great, but if your habits elicit eye rolls when you’re late - again, it might be time to streamline your routine. Here are some of the telltale signs...
Your liner takes longer than the commute to work
We know, we know, you can’t rush perfection. But when you can get across the city in the time it takes to get your flick on fleek, you might want to rethink your priorities!
You often find products you didn’t even notice you were missing
Now, that’s a clear indication you have way more than you actually need.
You’re always 20 minutes late because it takes you forever to do your hair
Hair can be tricky and unpredictable - trust us, we get it - but unless you’re going to meet the Queen, it’s no excuse to keep someone waiting.
Your make-up bag is more like a beauty suitcase
You can’t possibly be using all those products on a daily basis - so quit hoarding and downsize your haul!
You get frustrated when there’s nothing new to buy in Sephora (because you have everything already)
And all the sales assistants know you by name, and ask how your mum’s doing.
Your pink lipstick collection has more shades than the Dulux colour chart
We checked, and Dulux has over 15 different pinks. If your selection amounts to more than this, you’ve got a problem.
