Create, Innovate and Try Something New With Your Cosmetics Before It's Too Late


If you find something that suits you in terms of beauty products, it can be difficult to change your styles.


After all, the primary reason that we wear cosmetics is that we want to enhance our appearance. We want to build on the things that nature didn't give us. We want more sculpted cheekbones, a bigger pout, longer fluttering eyelashes. If we find techniques, colors and products that make that happen for us - then why should we be concerned with changing?


There's some real validity to that argument, but it's time to play Devil's Advocate. If there is a valid reason to continue doing as you always have, then is there a reason not to change things a little bit?


Beauty products and cosmetics should be about fun; reinvention; trying new things and using our facial contours as a canvas. There's nothing wrong with sticking with the same thing - but there's plenty to be gained from switching it up. Don't believe me? Here are a few scenarios...


1. You have an opportunity to be brave.


So you decide, right on the second you're about to complete checkout at https://www.thankyourbeauty.com/, to throw in a product you've not tried before. It's a different color or just something totally new to you - a bronzer, a primer, a liquid lipstick.


When it comes to actually trying that product, then you have a chance to be brave. You've already had one moment of experimentation when you chose to buy it, so why not ratchet up a notch? At times, we have a tendency to use makeup as a mask - so why not try a different one for once? It's not going to freeze to your face; if you don't like it, you can remove it. So be brave.




2. You might love it.


This happens more often than you would expect. You find a trend such as winged eyeliner or smoky eyes and immediately dismiss it. You decide it's not for you, that it won't suit you, that it could never suit you...


... and then you try it. And you glance back at your reflection and can't quite believe what you're seeing. Not only does it look good, but you love the way it makes you look. It boosts your confidence and gives you a newfound respect for trying something new. Something you never would have discovered if you hadn't given it a go.


3. What you love might go out of style.


Articles like this http://www.cosmopolitan.com/style-beauty/beauty/g5770/early-2000s-makeup-trends/ love to point out how time has changed in what’s considered stylish in beauty. If you find yourself sticking to the same routine for years on end, eventually, your habits are going to go out of fashion. If you're still using concealer on your lips like everyone did in the 00s or think eyeshadow should be applied up to the brow bone - it's time to move on. Even the modern looks you're so sure and confident of will eventually become passe if you're not willing to try something innovative every once in awhile. So don't limit yourself: give something new a go at the next opportunity.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Five Ways You Can Be The Perfect Pet Owner

Being a dog owner is a lot more responsibility than you might think it is.

Here are some tips to help you out.

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
