Beauty is a lot more that just fixing your hair or swiping some makeup on your face. It is truly an art form. It has so many techniques and products that require a keen eye, precisions and a sharp attention to detail. Do you have what it takes? Regardless of your answer, here are some tips to help you.
Keep a bit of your favorite moisturizer in a small container such as an empty lip gloss pot. You can easily carry this with you in your car, make-up bag, purse or stash it in your work desk. You can use a quick dab of it to counteract feelings of dryness as soon as they occur.
Pale or sparse eyebrows can be quickly and easily filled in to make them appear thicker and fuller. Use a disposable mascara wand to brush on dark brown eye shadow or mascara onto the brows, then comb it through with another disposable brush to smooth out the color and remove clumps.
Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.
Drink an adequate amount of fluid each day for fresh, flawless skin. Wrinkles, dullness and dryness are the result of inadequate water. Try to consume 64 oz. of water daily, more if you live in an extreme climate. You might add some lemon, lime or cranberry juice to your water if it will be more appealing to you that way. You will see a dramatic difference in your skin’s appearance.
If you have the money, you may want to get another set of cosmetics that you normally use, like foundation, lipstick or lotion. Keep them handy in your bathroom or at work. This is an excellent way to be fully prepared so you won’t forget to put on makeup.
If you do not have perfect skin, select matte blushes, not shimmery ones. Shimmer blushes highlight flaws in skin and make them appear obvious. Blushes that give a matte appearance, however, can hide blemishes, which can help you attain an appearance of flawless skin.
Whiten your teeth using strawberries. Before a big event or pictures and to instantly whiten your teeth, use the juicy side of a cut strawberry and rub over your teeth. This will help whiten them quickly and easily. This works great if you are unprepared or running low on time.
If you wear makeup daily, try having one day a month where you go without. This gives your face time to breathe and it allows it to stay healthy. You will see that your skin will be brighter and look healthier.
Once you have found a haircolor you like, be sure to buy an extra box or two of it to keep at home. That way, you will never be out of the color you like if they happen to run out of it at the local drugstore or beauty center.
If you are looking for a dramatic eye line, use a liquid eyeliner. Liquid eyeliners allows you to use creativity and it makes your eyes dazzle. When looking for a brush, choose one that is small with angled bristles so you can make a clean line.
When you are down to the last drop of your favorite, discontinued shade of nail polish, add a few drops of polish remover to your bottle. Shake well to blend, then use as you normally would. The color will be lightened, but still very similar.
Skin care is necessary in looking your best and being healthy. One of the most important things to do is reduce dry skin on your face. Use lotion a few times each day for optimal results.
A great way to make small eyes appear to look much bigger is to steer clear of dark shades of eye shadow. Begin by using a nude base as a foundation, and then use a shadow that is one or two shades darker than the foundation in the crease. After blend the color up towards the brow by using your finger.
After waxing any part of your skin, it is important that you do not take a hot bath or shower right away. This can cause irritation because waxing leaves your pores wide open. Try waiting at least an hour before being exposed to any type of hot water at all.
For an inexpensive, moisturizing oil treatment; apply a few teaspoons of olive oil to your scalp, massage it in, and wrap your tresses in a warm, damp towel. After about 30 minutes, shampoo all of the oil out (this may take two tries) and enjoy your newly revitalized hair!
Whether it be on your face, legs, or anywhere else, do not shave the same spot over and over again. People think that they will effectively get all of their hair by doing this, when in fact, the only thing that will happen is that your skin will get irritated or you will get razor bumps.
Applying make-up is a skill that must be learned. A good rule of thumb when deciding upon an eye and lip color, is to emphasize one or the other but not both. If you would like attention to be drawn to your lips, then go softer on the eye make-up and vice verse. If you want a more dramatic eye, then go with a neutral color for your lips.
Now you see that beauty is a lot more than haphazardly applying products to yourself. It takes skill and an eye for pleasant aesthetics. You don’t want to look slovenly, so why not take some time to learn how to do it right? The above tips should have given you some pointers on how to do that.
