Are you feeling uninspired by your beauty regimen lately? Do you find yourself doing the same look every day and it feels old and tired? Well, your passion for good beauty products and sophisticated looks don’t have to fade away — just explore new ideas and take advantage of all the available resources to reignite your inspiration.
In 2017, the beauty industry was worth an enormous $445 billion, according to an article in Forbes Magazine, meaning that there’s always new brands, products and styles that you need to learn about. Let’s take a look at a few things you can do to keep up with these new trends and continue to stay inspired every day.
1. Engage With Beauty Brands
As a billion dollar industry, there are new beauty brands opening and flourishing every day — it’s up to you to stay up-to-date and engaged in order to receive inspiration. Sephora, for example, has a ‘Weekly Wow’ Promotion where the company highlights new and different products. It’s a great way to see what’s trending on the market, and use it as inspiration to add to your weekly regimen. It’s important also to engage with a variety of brands that have different selling points. Amway offers high quality (often organic) products that can be a great addition to any daily skincare, hair care or cosmetic routine. The company’s social media accounts feature health and beauty advice and inspiration. Follow these kinds of companies on social media to be exposed to products and ideas you wouldn’t see on regular advertising avenues.
2. Follow The Right Influencers
Social media has been a major contributor to the rising popularity of the beauty industry, and this has a lot to do with the relevance of influencers. By posting and circulating content, influencers are able to constantly share new ideas, suggestions, products and styles so that customers like you can stay inspired. There are the celebrity influencers like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner that are always marketing their new products and providing great beauty tips, and then there are the-girl-next-door type influencers — such as Michelle from the beauty endeavor — who you can follow on Instagram. Other top influencers include Huda Kattan and Manny Gutierrez; each share some useful content, but do your own research to find an influencer who suits your style.
3. Read the Best Publications
While traditional publishing may be a dying industry, it’s still very much a prominent part of the fashion and beauty world. Publications like Vogue and InStyle have a strong following, as they set the new trends, highlight the best products and give you valuable tips and info about the beauty world. If you’re every feeling uninspired, flip through the pages of Vogue, InStyle, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, along with some lesser known beauty bloggers that can reignite your inspiration with different looks and ideas. Even if you don’t feel like subscribing to the actual magazine, be sure to follow them on social media to get daily updates, live tutorials and hot tips.
Your beauty routine is an important process that is meant to make you feel confident. But sometimes it can feel dreary and repetitive, so it’s important to do what you can to remain inspired and up-to-date. Take a look at these few tips and never get bored of your beauty regimen again.
