A one-size-fits-all beauty regimen obviously doesn’t make sense. There’s just too much glorious diversity for us all to do the same stuff for our hair, skin, makeup, and nails. (And, really, how boring would that be?)
But, we will say this: As varied as our individual approaches to beauty may be, there are a few common signs that you’re a grown-ass woman with a well-considered beauty routine to match.
