Did you know that sales figures show (consistently) that during a bad economic period, more cosmetic products are sold than usual? These figures also show that after a tragedy occurs in an area, sales also increase.
What can we gather from this information? Just as Leonard Lauder said, tough times equate to a higher demand for beauty products. If that name sounds familiar, it is because the guy is the chairman of Estee Lauder, perhaps one of the most known brands in the beauty industry.
While you may not be experiencing really tough economic times or you may not be facing tragic circumstances, you might find yourself feeling a bit low. Call it the blues if you will, but the fact remains that prettifying yourself when you’re not feeling so good helps tons!
How can you prettify yourself on a bad day?
Put some makeup on! You may not be the type to use makeup but give it a try and you just might see the difference. Start simple – it doesn’t have to be a full blown thing. Put some bright lipstick on. Use an eye liner. Put some blush.
Dress up! You don’t have to wear a dress, but try something different. If you don’t normally wear a dress, why not get one and just try? Oh, and dump black and other earth colors. Try a bright shade of purple or yellow or orange or red – or maybe a mix of colors.
The bottom line is to find an overall look that you will be comfortable with. At the end of the day, you’ll not only look good, you’ll also feel better!
