How fun is that? Do not let the information available overwhelm you. The following article provides you with all the information you need to develop your regimen, and become your own personal beauty-care expert.
Fill an empty pot or a tiny jar with the moisturizer of your choice. This perfectly handy container can be kept anywhere, such your purse, travel bag, car or even the drawer of your work desk. You can use a quick dab of it to counteract feelings of dryness as soon as they occur.
Give your cuticles some nourishment with a weekly Vaseline application. This stimulates the nail bed and adds moisture, which keeps your nails splitting or peeling. It helps your nails and the skin around them to look shinier and healthier, too. In fact, you will see results the very first time you try this tip.
If you plan on a night-out right after work, refresh your look using a fluffy brush and matte powder on oily areas of your face. Emphasize your cheekbones by sparingly applying a bit of shimmery powder to the apples of each cheek.
Emphasize the sharpness of your cheekbones by applying a shade of powder blush that is one shade deeper than your normal cheek color product. Using a blush brush, dab on a spot of the powder in the hollows of your cheeks just under the cheekbones. Remove excess powder, then blend in a circular motion.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
Keep your makeup light and simple. If you put on too much makeup you can stress your skin, and make yourself look older than you are. The best beauty is often the least complicated. Keep your routine to a quality moisturizer, followed with lip gloss and a good mascara.
Tone down a lipstick that is too bold or bright. A great way to make an overly pigmented shade easier on the eyes is to put some on the back of your hand, dab it with foundation, mix, and apply to lips. Your new shade should now be a better match for your tone.
If you want to camouflage a pimple, rosacea, a rash or another reddish skin imperfection dab on a green concealer. While it looks strange in the package, the green neutralizes the red tones of irritated skin so you can apply your regular foundation and concealer without the redness showing through.
Do you enjoy wearing makeup on a daily basis? If so, then one day per month you shouldn’t wear makeup at all. This lets your face breathe and helps keep it healthy. You are sure to see a freshening of your skin’s appearance.
You may not have the time to do a full makeup job on your eyes. Should this be the case, try a quick smudgy eye look by combining a small amount of lip balm and a small amount of either mascara or eyeliner on the tip of your finger. Rub to an even consistency, then rub across your eyelids as close to the lashes as you can. A smudgy look is what you’re going for. Add two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go.
To keep from getting eye bags, drink plenty of water before you go to bed. One of the leading causes of eyebags is dehydration during the night. If you still have eyebags when you wake up, rest cold, caffeinated teabags on your eyes for about 10 minutes. This will nourish your eyes and make the bags disappear.
When applying make up you want to be sure that you do it in a gentle way. If you use strokes that are too strong you can have two problems. The first of these is that the abrasive nature of the strokes can damage your skin. Secondly, it leads to a lack of control and worse makeup.
If you have sensitive skin there are certain things you should avoid doing in order to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. Do not wash your face with regular soap, do not use harsh, overly strong cosmetics, do not use facial masks that dry out the skin, avoid the use of foaming cosmetics and do not use cosmetics that contain fruit acids or alcohol.
Dark circles no more! For example, when applying moisturizer, begin by massaging the outer area of your eye and working inward. Doing this also helps prevent lymphatic damage and provides your skin with a more youthful look.
Consider applying Vaseline to your feet when you are ready to go to bed. Once the Vaseline has been applied, put your socks on and leave it on overnight. Your feet will be much softer when you wake up in the morning.
If you have run out of shaving cream and you don’t want to use soap to shave your legs because of the drying effect, then use hair conditioner! Coating your legs with conditioner before shaving will soften the hair and make it easier to shave, leaving the legs feeling very soft and silky.
If you are trying to reduce the puffiness around your eyes try holding a cold spoon on the puffy areas. The cold can cause the puffiness to go away making your face look more beautiful.
