From beards to makeup brushes, there’s a lot of confusion about best practices for looking your best. Beauty magazines and so-called “health and wellness” product boxes often muddy the waters. Most people don’t need 200 tips and a few dozen tricks; they just need to know where and how to shave, or what kind of brush to use.
Infographics are great as one-page cheat sheets, and the ones below prove that.
