Beauty’s main goal is improving upon one’s natural look. It doesn’t require lots of expensive products or hours of precious time to enhance your natural beauty. You can get started with the tips below.
There are two ways to disguise blemishes and flaws on your face. First, gently apply concealer to the problem areas with a small cosmetics brush. The second method of disguising imperfections is distraction. Try wearing a warm, pink lipstick. This will draw peoples’ eyes away from any flaws you wish to conceal.
You can stretch the usefulness of your foundation by mixing it with your moisturizer. Also, with the foundation being slightly watered down, it will seem a lot less heavy. The added benefit is that you will now have sun protection in your foundation too if you used an SPF moisturizer.
If you have very narrow eyes, you can create the illusion that they are more widely opened by first using an eyelash curler to curl your top lashes. Apply a dark brown mascara to the middle lashes, then tilt the wand diagonally and apply the mascara to the outer lashes.
For smooth, streak-free results, exfoliate your skin before applying self-tanner. Dead, dry skin can cause self-tanner to absorb unevenly. This can result in streaks, splotches and areas of color that are darker than they should be. You can eliminate this problem by exfoliating your skin before you apply self-tanner. By removing dead skin cells, exfoliating can help ensure that yourself tanner absorbs evenly and gives you a beautiful, streak-free glow.
If you are using shimmer, highlight the places light will hit. This will give your skin a slight glow effect. Use a highlighter on your nose, brows, and cheekbones. Cover this with a light layer of powder.
Use a teabag to help fix a torn fingernail. Empty all of the leaves from the bag. Then trim out a portion of the emptied bag that is big enough to cover up the torn part of your nail. Apply the bag, paint over it and the look will be complete.
Avoid refined foods as part of your daily beauty routine. Refined foods take away most of the nutrients that would naturally be found in a food. Often times the good things are replaced by chemicals and fortifiers. Your overall health will vastly improve, not just your skin, nails, and hair.
When applying winged eyeliner, extend the line at the outer edge of your eye so that it follows the natural curve of your lower lash line. This helps it blend with the shape of your eye so that it looks more natural. The eyeliner should be thickest at the outer corner of your eye and then taper to a point at the tip of the wing.
You may not have stuck your finger in an electrical socket, but your hair frizzes might suggest you had. To tame these nasty beasts, you will want to add moisture to your hair. Stay away from hairspray as it has alcohol that dries the hair. Apply hair serum to damp hair to lock in the moisture, and keep uncontrolled hair at bay.
Steer clear of using hair extensions to add volume and length to hair. These hair extensions are usually in textures and colors that will not blend properly with your hair and stick out like a sore thumb. Because the point of attachment is difficult to disguise, only use extensions when lengthening a ponytail or fattening, an up-do where it is not as noticeable and does not need to blend.
Use steam to refresh your face. Steam releases the impurities in your pores, and you don’t need to go to a sauna. A bowl or other container of hot water and a towel are all you need; just hold your head over it and let the piping hot steam redeem your skin.
To help you pluck your eyebrows, you want to hold the tweezers in a vertical position against the side of your nose. You then move the tweezers along your eyebrows, and you will see very easily where your arch should start and stop. This will ensure that you stay with the natural shape of your eyebrows.
Baking soda is your beauty friend. Baking soda is one of those products that you should always have on hand. For beauty you can use it to make your shampoo work better, whiten your teeth, and cure the pain of sunburn. All of this from one box that hardly costs a dollar.
Want to instantly feel younger and more beautiful? Get a new hairdo. Visiting your salon for a cut and color is a quick way to revitalize a tired look. Your stylist can provide tips for a look that works for you, and complete your beauty transformation. You will also feel relaxed after a day at the salon, making you look more beautiful as well.
Have you ever had makeup smudges and want an easy way to fix them without re-doing your whole look? Then try a cotton swab and some eye-makeup remover. This way, you can precisely clean up the area you need to re-do when time doesn’t allow starting over from scratch.
If you love avocados, you might be surprised to find out they are good for more than just making guacamole; they make great body softeners. Get yourself a ripe avocado that has the skin and pit taken out. Mash it up in a bowl. Apply a coating of avocado on your body for its healing properties and keep it on for a half hour. Avocado will naturally moisturize and soften your skin.
While most people think their hair should be washed daily, it is not recommended. This will only stimulate oil production and create excess oil. About once every two days is sufficient to keep oil and dirt from building up.
Beauty is all a matter of perception. What is beautiful to one person is unattractive to another. Make sure that whatever you do, you feel good about the way that you look. If you feel good about yourself then that will show through and make you beautiful to everyone else too.
Using these tips will help you improve your natural beauty. Using this advice, you will see results that are positive.
