Instant Confidence Booster – Payday Beauty Treats

March 23, 2018

There comes a point in every woman’s life where she requires a little pick-me-up.
Whether it’s buying something she likes or going the ‘whole hog’ and splurging on an all-inclusive holiday – Everyone is entitled to it and women are of no exception.

So I asked Amy from High Style Life what her thoughts and feelings were on this theory, and also whether she could recommend any tips for those women who were looking to treat themselves.

And her reply was;

All a woman needs to feel beautiful is a little confidence boost.
A long working week and an even longer and exhausting month at work can cause a serious imbalance in our mind, and there’s nothing like a happy payday to turn that frown upside down.
After a productive and successful month at the office, you certainly deserve to splurge some money on various beauty treats and pamper yourself to the max.
Whether you decide to have a spa treatment or visit your hairdresser for a new styling experiment, it’ll certainly make you feel a lot better in your own skin.


New makeup

Makeup Collection

Have you been checking out that gorgeous liquid lipstick and that vibrant eyeshadow palette at Sephora for more than a month? Well, there’s no time like the present to treat yourself to a few high-end makeup products that will help you upgrade your look. Furthermore, make sure you check your makeup expiration dates regularly and don’t hesitate to invest in quality products and offer your skin the best possible care.
You shouldn’t use the same mascara for more than six months after you’ve opened it, or you could end up with serious eye infections.
Highlighters have been taking over the spotlight this season, so make sure you treat yourself to a shimmery little palette and put some natural-looking glow on your face.


High-end moisturizers

Australian women try their best to maintain a glowing skincare routine since the sun in the Land Down Under has shown no mercy in the previous years.
The damaging UV rays dry out the skin unless it’s treated properly.
Having this in mind, Aussie women have made sure to keep their skin well-moisturized and protected with lotions and creams that contain a protective SPF.
Therefore, offer your skin the utmost care, and invest in high-quality moisturizers that will keep your skin refreshed, replenished and well protected.


Treat yourself to a beauty treatment


Beauty treatments

Laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and dermal fillers are just some of the most popular beauty treatments in Australia.
The time you used to spend on waxing or shaving can now be used to a much better purpose if you decide to treat yourself to a laser hair removal treatment.
You can get a perfectly safe treatment at a reliable beauty clinic in Sydney that uses state of the art lasers, which remove all of the targeted body hair without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface. The treatment is fast and pain-free, and it will solve the problem of unsightly ingrown hairs as well.


Splurge on a hairstyling treatment

Hair styling

Is it high time you did something with your hair? Does it need a new colour, or some trimming? Maybe you’d like a perm instead of having to style it after every wash. If you ask the Australian women, they’ll probably say undone hair is the best way to achieve an effortlessly beautiful look.
However, not all of us have the hair that can go without colouring and styling, so some highlights or a different shape of bangs will make the new you.

Regardless of the idea you had in mind, payday is the perfect time to spend some money on this beauty treat. Sometimes all you need for a fresh start and a little confidence boost is a new hairstyle that actually makes a lot of difference. Experimenting with hair colours and styles has always been one of the best tactics to become a new and improved version of yourself, so feel free to give it a try.


Go to the spa

Is there anything more soothing and comforting than a day at the spa? Certainly not, so feel free to set an appointment and indulge in refreshing treatments.

From massages and facial treatments, through mud baths and bubbly hot tubs, to saunas or other specialized rooms, treating yourself to a relaxing day at the spa is worth every penny.

The absolute tranquillity, while well-trained masseurs and specialists take care of you, will provide you with a long-term stress-free feeling, preparing you for the upcoming daily challenges.


Final thoughts

We all need a bit of pampering from time to time, so why not use the chance to treat yourself right on your payday. Whether you go to the spa, have a beauty treatment at the beauty clinic or go to style your hair and restock your makeup supply, make sure it’s just the right thing that’ll boost your confidence and make you feel comfortable in your own skin.

Well, I think that just about sums up everything.

Thank you to Amy’s recommendations, I definitely could do with investing a little more into my skincare routine – Afterall, If you don’t look after it, you lose it!

      Thank you hun, and that is so true, as soon as we feel like we can have a little breather from spending, another event pops up and we’re back to where we started. C’est la vie I guess. Also, I have never bought anything from ColourPop due to international shipping costs, but I hear that their products are really good quality and super pigmented, it would be nice to give them a try.

  2. Angel says:

    I really should get a beauty treatment again somewhere soon. But mostly I just buy new make-up, which makes me feel just as good~

  3. I’ve not gone to a beauty spa for a very long time, it helps a lot as you said. It’s time to book one.

      Thank you hunni, it was the Anastasia Beverley Hills Prism Palette – I love that palette, I highly recommend it as you can create so many looks with it’s just so versatile! And I know exactly what you mean, I can think of a few people in my life who are deserving of one pretty soon. Just feels good to hit the refresh button every once in a while. I’m glad you like it.
