Beauty is a very personal daily regimen for many people. It involves the particular needs of an individual, along with personal grooming and treatments. This vast world has so many treatments, accessories and techniques, that it can seem a bit confusing as to where you need to begin. These tips can help you make sense of the confusion.
Brighten up your eyes with this natural look: apply a light, neutral-colored eye shadow to your entire upper eyelid. Look for sand, khaki, beige, or fawn colors. This will neutralize any redness on your lids, which can make you appear older and tired. Add drama by smudging a darker shade on the lids just in the crease.
Apply eye shadow to seal in eyeliner. When you are making up your eyes, apply your liner before your eye shadow. Then, when applying the shadow, slightly dampen a cotton swab and add some eye shadow. Smooth this over the liner and you will find it lasts much longer.
If you wear makeup, invest in a proper set of brushes. While good quality brushes tend to be a little costly they will greatly improve the application of your makeup. You can find some nice brushes at a discount using online auction sites.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
If you have dry skin, or older looking skin, you need to be exfoliating on a weekly basis. You should also do this if you are applying any kind of tanning lotion. You want to exfoliate first to get the most out of the tanning lotion you are using.
The simplest and absolute cheapest way to reduce morning eye puffiness is using wet cotton balls thatbyou have put in the refrigerator! Simply soak the cotton balls under a running faucet, or use bottled water if your tap contains a lot of chlorine, pop them in a plastic bag and store them in the fridge. Come morning when your eyes are half closed and puffy, those cold cotton balls will work instant magic!
You can use potato slices to help reduce puffiness. Leave it there for about 10 minutes. As an alternative, you can use cucumbers to help with the redness. This can help even out the tone and give you a calming relief to your irritation.
After you put on lipstick, put one finger in your mouth and then slowly slide it out. Doing this enables you to clean lipstick traces from the corners of your mouth, preventing them from migrating to the teeth.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
Add some gloss or color to your lips. Applying tinted lip gloss to your lips helps to give your lips a soft, finished look. If you are looking to draw more attention to your lips, add lipstick or lip stain. By adding either one of these it will help to improve your overall look.
If you are like many who have a problem keeping your eyeliner where it is supposed to be, try applying your eye shadow on top of the eyeliner with a damp cotton ball. It will help to set the liner and keep it in its place longer than it would otherwise.
Massaging Vaseline into your cuticles will help your hands in many ways. It will make the skin much more hydrated and it will also encourage your nails to grow a bit quicker. Do this once a week every week and you are sure to see a big difference in the appearance of your hands and nails.
Make sure that you tint your eyebrows. You can do this by using a brow pencil yourself, or you may go to a pro and have them tint your eyebrows using a permanent dye. The tint adds definition and a younger look.
Eyeshadows can be tricky for eyes over 40. Metallic, glittery shadows are beautiful, but eyelid skin develops tiny folds which are, unfortunately, accentuated by those gorgeous metallic colors. On the other hand, some matte shadows look too flat and dry, and do not flatter the eye either. Instead, look for shadows that are neither matte nor metallic: “quietly lustrous” should be the goal.
Simply cover your feet with Vaseline, put on some old socks, and head to bed. In the morning, the skin on your feet will be noticeably softer.
If you have ever had the problem of your eyeliner smearing or crumbling as you try to apply it, try putting it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you need to use it. This will firm up the tip so the eyeliner goes on smoothly, and you won’t have the resulting crumbles or smears.
