Learning beauty tips on the Internet

In the old days, girls had to spend money going to the hairdressing salon to have their faces and hair done before a wedding or other special event. These days, however, people can put make-up on and do their hair themselves by following instructions on the Internet.

Chea Sopheak, a 24-year-old student at the University of Cambodia, said she prefers having a DIY make-up job.

“I like to learn these things from the Internet, where many people have uploaded their tutorials onto YouTube so that I can watch various styles of make-up, such as the natural make-up look and the sexy look,” said Sopheak, who added that she can learn tips for what products should be used on different skin types.

Sopheak said that it is better to watch YouTube for free than to pay a hairdresser.

“As I’ve practised many times after watching those tutorials for months, I’ve decided not to spend money at the hairdressing salon.”

“Sure, at first I really had no idea what cleanser, cream or essence were. But after checking on the Internet, I know about the skin care and cleanser products. By reading the product reviews, I know which products I should use. They are more honest than the seller, and I can avoid being fooled by advertisements.”

“I used to know nothing about make-up and skin care routines, and I would go to the salon even for small parties. But with some effort and watching and reading on the Internet, I now get ideas for myself and don’t always need the salon.”
