When it comes to reading articles about fashion, I'm usually very good at remembering certain facts and tidbits, no matter how seemingly unimportant or obscure they are. Hand me a fashion magazine, and I'll read every fashion-related story (credits included) in it. Leave me alone with my laptop, and I'll gladly exhaust the unread posts on my blog feed (which, as it happens, consists primarily of fashion blogs). To make a long story short, I will gobble up any written piece of work that's remotely related to fashion. You can quote me on that.
Beauty, on the other hand, is an entirely different thing. While I appreciate the wonders makeup can do to a person and while I'm all for following a rigorous skincare routine, I'm also a firm believer in sticking to the tried-and-tested methods and products. Articles that investigate modern beauty breakthroughs or track the creation of a certain makeup product just don't appeal to me the same way a news piece about John Galliano's replacement at Dior or H&M's new designer collaborator do. Not that I don't care about what's happening in the world of beauty—I just want the simple, abbreviated version of it (and not the lengthy explanation peppered with jargon I can't wrap my head around).
It's no wonder I love the beauty articles on Female Network. They're simple, straightforward, relatable, and understandable. Most importantly, they address concerns real women actually have. And the advice? Worth keeping in mind regardless of what age you are.
In no particular order, here are my picks for the top FN beauty advice every woman should take to heart.
