There are many different places to get beauty information. Magazines, news shows, friends and family are just a few.

As a beauty consumer, its wise to gather information on a product before purchasing. Reading magazines and beauty blogs to get info on the latest and greatest gives general info on producs but how do you know that those products are specific to you or your individual needs? How do you know that the foundation that your friend is raving about is going to work for you?  

To find out what new products are perfect for you, here are 5 steps:

1) Do the homework (visit beauty blogs, get a subscription to Allure magazine, ask women you trust what they are using and loving)

2) Once you have some products that you want to investigate, go to the brands website and get some more info on the product! Here you’ll discover what the key ingredients of the product are, what shades it comes in and what the price is.

3) Take a trip to the mall and go touch and play with the product. Do you like the way that it feels? Is the scent one that you like?  

4) Talk to someone who works for the brand and have him/her test the product on you. Does it enhance your appearence? Do you like the way that it looks?

5) Before finally deciding to purchase the product, you’ll want to make sure you’ll be able to apply it correctly at home. Is there a specific brush or sponge that it needs to be applied with? Where should it be applied?  

Once you’ve done the homework and gotten the answers to these questions, you’ll be ready to make an informed decision!
