Ready to get started with your own beauty regimen? No? What’s the matter, you don’t know what to do or where to start with beauty? No worries, this article has your back. Below are some tips and tricks that can get you started with the basics of beauty so that you can do it your way.
Lightly spray your face with a hydrating mist to make your makeup last longer. The mist will help set your makeup, keep it looking fresh and give you that just done makeup look for hours. This is great for keeping your makeup in place for those long days at work or nights out with friends.
If you are going to use a self tanner always exfoliate. This helps smooth your skin. Tans apply more evenly this way. Exfoliating can also make your tan last longer and appear more natural.
Disposable mascara wands, which are often known by makeup artists as “spoolies”, are a cheap and effective tool for your makeup kit. These tiny brushes are useful to break up clumps in the lashes and brush off excess mascara without spoiling your makeup. In a pinch, they can also be used to groom your eyebrows. They should be disposed after each use.
Apply a few tablespoons of sweet almond oil to your warm bath for a relaxing treat that will leave even the roughest, driest skin feeling supple and soft. You can also apply it sparingly to extremely dry and damaged hair – but only on the inch or so above the ends.
If you are trying to enhance your hazel or green eyes, try to look for certain colors that bring out the gold flecks and the green so it almost looks like it is candlelight. These colors include silvery pewter, shimmery lavender, light brown, and deep purple.
Rather than shelling out big money for a brand name facial moisturizer try using coconut oil instead. Virgin coconut oil soothes the skin with deep-penetrating moisture; it can also delay formation of wrinkles and fine lines. With natural ingredients that fight fungal and bacterial infections, coconut oil is also effective against minor skin ailments like acne, eczema and psoriasis.
If your face is a bit on the long side, you can make the effect seem less severe, simply by using some well-placed cream blush. Opt for a dark rose or brick shade, then use your fingertips to apply the color only on the apples of your cheeks; do not extend the color past this point, as it can actually make your face appear, even more narrow.
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.
Create the illusion of less deep-set eyes by using lightly colored eyeshadow to the entire eyelid. The light colors will appear to come forward, whereas a darker liner or shadow would have the reverse affect, making the eyes appear to recede further into the face. The color you apply should be light and very subtle.
Choose products appropriate for your skin type. When you are selecting your facial products, whether they are lotions, toners or cleansers, make sure they are appropriate for your type of skin. Using products aimed at your particular problem areas can improve skin condition dramatically. Follow this up with a weekly face mask that purifies.
For eyes that pop, use shimmering shadows. The glittery effects will help your eyes to look brighter. Choose colors that are similar to your skin tone, be it orange or pink. Try out different color combination and see what works best for you.
If you are dieting and want to lose weight, eating pineapple is a great idea. This delicious, sweet tasting fruit is great for dieters because it contains large amounts of bromelain. Bromelain is a great aid for digestion of many types of food. It can therefore help increase metabolism.
Daily conditioner use is best avoided if your hair is very fine. Simply one or two times per week should suffice. This stuff will weigh your fine hair down and make it look dead and dull. If your goal is to have light and shiny hair, then limit your conditioner use.
When going to the beach, use this trick to make your waist look narrower. With a white pencil liner, dot the shape of an egg on both sides, starting just below the rib cage. Then fill the egg area with a little self-tanner just one shade darker than your natural skin tone and blend it in.
If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets. These smell wonderful and are impregnated with scented transparent powder. Or you can take a sheet of regular toilet paper and press, not rub, on the oily areas.
To cover up a zit at the last minute, use a product containing cortisone or benzoyl peroxide. Apply the product to a cotton ball, and gently dab it on your pimple. This will bring down the redness and shrink the zit. This will allow you to easily hide the pimple with concealer.
To cut down on facial puffiness, put an ice cube in your mouth and hold it against the roof; that will cut down on your puffy face. Then, splash some cold water on your face, and you will get rid of the puffiness within minutes inexpensively.
