Being a woman in today’s day and age makes for a ton of things to worry about. Besides never being able to find a pair of jeans that fits just right and losing countless hours to Pinterest, there are some other universal concerns we all face. Whether you’d rather be caught dead than without your red lipstick on or you’re more of a BB cream and run kind of girl, there are just some things we all need to know. How do you cover dark circles? Which shampoos won’t dry out hair? Will that mascara actually give eyelashes 200% more volume? Inquiring minds need to know.

Regardless of how much makeup you wear on a daily basis or how often you get your hair colored, the search for the best beauty products can be exhausting. Plus, once you get the products, you then have to learn how to apply them, how much you need, which ones will work best for you, etc. Everyone appreciates a little help in these areas. While most of us have that one friend who always knows which concealer to use for what kind of pimple or how to actually do a fishtail braid at home, many of us are left in the dark when it comes to the beauty aisle. So, what’s an under-informed girl to do besides call up the local makeup company consultant? Easy: Head to a beauty blog.
