(BPT) - Let's face it, makeup can be expensive. We are living in a time like no other, with the pandemic and social distancing affecting every aspect of our lives — from our daily lifestyles, budgets, diets — to our beauty regimens. We are all guilty of wanting the most luxe and notable cosmetics to put on our faces. But in this economy, splurging on makeup isn’t a practical option.
Yet these affordable luxuries can be an excellent way to practice self-care when we need a little extra positivity in our lives. In fact, studies show that in challenging times women tend to treat themselves to personal care items as a way to feel better. As we look ahead to what the summer season has in store for us, there's no question that it's going to look different than years past — but "different" doesn't mean you can’t buy the makeup that you love.
