Our beauty routine is always evolving. Case in point: The hair crimper that used to be a part of our daily routine hasn’t seen the light of day in the past 10 years (thank goodness) and our rollerball body glitter is tucked safely in the farthest back corner of our beauty drawer — hopefully for good. However, there are certain beauty tips we’ve picked up that we plan on making use of for years to come. These tricks have helped us look put-together (even if we’re freaking out internally) in the face of many a stressful beauty situation and we are forever indebted to them. Read on for the 20 beauty tips we think every woman, no matter your age, location or beauty style, should know.
