It's one thing to be a beauty fan and another to be beauty obessesed. When we think about someone who's a fan of beauty, we think of someone who takes care of their skin, enjoys discovering skincare that works for them, someone who owns a bit of makeup, and is interested in learning how to apply it well. Someone who keeps abreast of new offerings in the cosmetics world.
When we think of a beauty obsessed person we think of someone who isn't just interested in skincare, but is passionate about it. The kind of person who reads the back of labels and actually knows what all the scientific words means. Someone who lives and breathes new releases from beauty companies. A person who is not afraid to splash some serious money if it means their skin and makeup will look its best.
So what are the tools that separate a beauty fan from the beauty obsessed? What will be hiding in their beauty spaces? Check these out...
It's one thing to use a bit of cleanser and your hands to wash the grime of the day off your face, some may even use a cleansing cloth for extra makeup and dirt-removing properties. Those who are super serious about it invest in the likes of a Clarisonic, which is designed to deeply and gently clean the skin, leaving it smoother and more radiant.
There's a good chance too that they'll have invested in one of the Clarisonic's different heads, like the Sonic Foundation Brush, which is said to blend and buff your way to flawless cream and liquid foundation, cream blush and bronzer.
If the body is a temple than your face is what people see when they come to worship, so there's no way the beauty obsessed is going to let their skin be smooshed into a cotton pillowcase at night. No, for the beauty obsessed it's a silk pillowcase all the way - like the Slipsilk pillowcase, which works to help you avoid those delightful creases that apply on your face when you smush your moosh into a standard pillowcase, all the while keeping your hair tangle-free.
Things heading south? Ah the joys of gravity! For those who want to keep the signs of ageing at bay then the NuFACE Trinity Device is sure to be found on their bedside table. It works to improve the contour and tone of skin, while reducing the look of wrinkles. At $500+ it's not for those on a budget, but is sure is more affordable than seeing a surgeon.
Artis. The word alone sends a shiver of delight down the beauty obsessed spine. It's the word that whispers elegance and quality. And this limited edition set of 24-karat gold-plated Elite Gold brushes take the brand's line to the next level. With a set like this on your duchess you'll never need - or want - another brush again.
Feet a little rough around the edges? Heels seen better days? Being beauty obsessed doesn't mean spending a fortune, it also means buying the best tool for the best result, and those who love their feet are all about the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File. The proof? With a 4.7/5 rating on Beauty Review it's a firm favourite of some of the biggest bunch of beauty obsessed gals we've ever met!
You know you've gone next level obsessed when you're willing to shell out for a $200 spatula in order to scoop out your creams and gels from their pottles. But who could blame a gal when the Argentum La Spatule D'Argent Cream Applicator is truly a thing of beauty. Made from solid silver, we'd like to think it's a solid investment - as long as you don't misplace it...
