Makeup Blogs & Tips for Matching Your Style to Your Personality

Can you imagine being faced with such a choice? With just eyeshadows alone, there are hundreds of different shades and types to choose from. Hours can be spent just finding the colour we imagine will suit our hair colour or the colour of our eyes and even the tone of our skin.

Most of us do not seek professional help or look for tips as we feel capable of being able to matching our makeup to our style. If you are flamboyant and extrovert, you may choose a bright blue or green eyeshadow but if you are shy or not as confident you may choose a subtle brown or cream colour.

As we start to read magazines, watch adverts or read online blogs we realise there is more to makeup than just choosing a colour we like. When it comes to concealers and lipsticks, it can be very important in matching the colours to our skin tones. Some people look great in a bright red lipstick, whilst others will not suit the colour at all.

We may finally decide to go and seek professional help or look for tips, but it’s difficult to know the best place to go and some places can be intimidating, especially if you go into department stores where you have to sit in front of people walking passed as you are assisted with choosing makeup to suit your skin tone or given helpful tips.

People looking online have found there are loads of opportunities to sit in their own homes and be taught the basics of how to apply their eyeshadows or lipsticks. There has been a huge rise in blogs dedicated to makeup tips, especially for those looking for tips on matching eyeshadows, concealers and blushers with their individual style and personality.

Blogs offer people the chance to learn from a range of different people and learning about the basics of matching different colours can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. You can practice in front of the mirror and not have to worry about being watched.

We all have our own style, clothes and even our lipstick give us the chance to express our individuality and our personality, for some it’s a part of who they are everyday. As we walk down the street we will see girls with pink hair, purple hair, black lipstick or really extravagant makeup, each one wanting to express their style in combining their hair or clothes with their personality.

Blogs offering help on matching our style with our personality are on the rise, as more and more people spend time in the digital world, it’s usually the first place we turn to if we have a question or need to learn a new skill. Blogs are often written by people with a passion in the subject and in many cases you will be learning from an experienced and passionate person who really wants to help you.

Advantages of online shopping for men’s clothing

Price comparison: This is one of the biggest advantages that a person gets when he shops online. With numerous websites/stores that offer menswear, you have the opportunity to select from the styles that are very popular; from the most basic article that is men’s underwear to shirts, pants, jackets and more.

Availability of choices: From my personal experience, I generally don’t get such a huge variety at brick and mortar shops than the online stores. You get your desired colors, fabrics, cuts, styles and more according to your wish list. For example, if we talk about men’s underwear- you get everything from men’s brief underwear to men’s thongs or even men’s bikini underwear that match your personality.

Easy search options: The top stores make sure that customers easily find what they’re looking for. Hence, they create easy search filters such as size, color, style, price and more in order to get the best for the wearers.

Feedback options: Every product comes with a review page that helps you voice your opinion about the product you bought. This helps the brand and the store to provide better service the next time.

Timely delivery: One of the most loved aspects- timely deliveries by stores is what attracts most of the working class males. They need not waste their time in searching every store and can easily shop while on the run or even on weekends without going out. With faster delivery options, you are also benefited and it prevents the chances of you are not looking good at any event/occasion.

Lastly, there are some precautionary measures that you must pay heed to. They are:

Check size: This is the most important aspect that many people tend to forget and then they are left with no choices. A size smaller or bigger would not give the perfect fit. Hence, make sure you check, compare and measure your size properly before you end up buying the wrong size.

Read return policy: After you got the wrong size, if you’re not well aware about the return policies; you might end up wasting your money. So, it is always better to go through the return policies before you place an order. This helps you throughout the process of product delivery to getting the new one or the refund amount.

Fabric content: It is not important that what you see on the screen is what you get in hand. The fabric composition mentioned are many times different from what you pay for and what you get. So, be careful.

These are some of the essential aspects of online shopping for men’s clothes. Implement them whenever you shop at any online store.

3. Rebellious Chica-She makes her own rules when it comes to fashion. Avoids to all extends looking like everyone else.
