"ADD TO CART" is now a widely used phrase that 2020 seems to highlight. Shopping online may seem more manageable and a whole new level of bliss, but there are things that we miss most, especially when shopping makeup. Trying out samples in malls made makeup shopping easier and prettier. But we all know that our new normal ticks off swatching every sample we want at our favorite makeup stall.
Now, moving on to our conundrum, "how are we going to shop for makeup without having the option to try it physically?". We broke down some list for you to tag the next time you shop makeup online.
1. KNOW YOUR UNDERTONE
We wouldn't call this a cheat but eventually, knowing your undertone can help a great deal in shopping your makeup. The perfect foundation, concealer, lipstick, blush, etc. rely on your undertone. It is best to know what complements your skin well if you use this makeup hack. Read our previous blog on how to Identify Your Undertone and Match Your Makeup
and learn more about it.
Nothing beats a well-researched human. And as much high as impulsive buying kicks, we know so well that our best buy is always what we read, learned, and pondered over. Also, watching your favorite beauty bloggers' makeup reviews is good research. You can discover new products through their videos.
3. READ THE REVIEWS
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. Browsing over customer reviews with products you want to try is a MUST. Never skip a sis' 5-star nor 1-star rate, and the reason behind it. These are vital information that could make or break your wallet. (pun intended)
4. TRY ON MAKEUP VIRTUALLY
Some makeup brands provide augmented reality tools on their website or social media accounts such as Instagram for their users to try. You can virtually try makeup through a series of filters that match these products you want to try.
5. JOIN THE NEWSLETTER
Most brands' newsletters provide discounts on your first purchase. Don't miss this offer, especially when it's your first time ordering from these brands. You can try new products at a discount. Shopping online is faster, convenient, and cheaper. (Wow, no wonder it is so easy to get lost in the virtual world.)
With that said, join our newsletter and GET 10% OFF ON YOUR FIRST PURCHASE.
