Looking beautiful is something that can make any women feel good about themselves. It is important to take the time to pamper yourself, and put some time into your beauty routine. This article will give you many tips on how to enhance the beauty that you naturally have every day.
If you need to soak up extra oil in your T-Zones, you can use blotting papers to quickly give your face a more matte appearance. These sheets often come in small, pocket-sized packets; many are offered with rice powder or in a powder-free option. The packets are very cheap and can be slipped into your purse or desk drawer.
Using dark, waterproof mascara is a great way to draw attention to your eyes. Use disposable mascara wands for eliminating clumps and extra mascara from the outer edges of the eyes.
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.
Make sure your lip liner and eyeliner pencils are sharpened before you use them. This way, they are always clean and ready to use. The best way to sharpen them is to place them in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes and then sharpen them.
Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eye brows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.
In order to make your teeth look whiter, use lipstick with cool, blue undertones. Lipsticks with warm, orange-based undertones accentuate the natural yellow color of your teeth, making them look yellower. Lipsticks with cool, blue-based undertones, on the other hand, will make your teeth look whiter. For the greatest impact, choose a bright red lipstick with blue undertones.
Peppermint oil mixed with water makes a really good, natural and alcohol free mouthwash. For each ounce of water used, add one droplet of oil. The first step is to boil the water. Then you will need to measure the peppermint drops into a vessel made of ceramic or Pyrex. Add the boiling water. Cover the container using a clean cloth and allow it to cool. Pour the mixture into a sterile bottle and tightly screw on the lid. Now you are free to use you new, homemade, mouthwash!
Always remove makeup before going to bed. If you sleep with your makeup on, you increase the likelihood you will get acne and blackheads. Makeup can trap dirt and oil on your face. Clean and tone your face every night. Don’t forget to add moisturizer when you are finished cleaning.
The accumulated foundation under the cap of your bottle makes a great concealer. If your concealer runs out and you just need a little, use the makeup that’s accumulated beneath your foundation cap. This works perfectly in a pinch.
Never ever apply a tanning lotion when you are in a hurry as this will always lead to disaster! This is one beauty item you really need to take your time with otherwise you end up looking freaky, so smooth the tanning lotion well over elbows, knees and feet and wash your hands thoroughly to avoid streaking. Use your tanning lotion well in advance of sleeping to prevent a complete botch job and well in advance of any special occasion, just in case!
If you’ve got a splitting nail and can’t get to the salon quick enough, grab a tea bag and bottle of clear nail polish! The strong fibers of a tea bag will act as a remedial mend until you can see a professional. Simply cut a small portion of the tea bag, place it directly on the torn part of the nail and top it off with a coat or two of clear nail polish and you are good to go!
If you have ever gone too far when plucking your eyebrows to where you can’t see you had any, there is a solution. You will first want to select an eyebrow pencil that blends with your brow color. Remember to fill the entire brow with the pencil and not just the bald spots using the fill, fix, feather technique.
If you have naturally pale skin, having a healthy glow can be a problem. A lot of makeup is not required to have a great looking skin glow. For the most natural-looking results, use a glow product around the hair line, the chin, the apple areas of your cheeks and the bridge of the nose.
As you grow older, your skin, as a result of sun exposure, becomes darker and is not as light and bright as it was when you were younger. To ensure that your skin remains as bright and lively as possible, make sure that you exfoliate on a regular basis. Exfoliation will lighten your skin by getting rid of dead skin cells.
Do not forget to put Visine into your beauty kit. A long, tiring night can leave you with red eyes in the morning. This could make your appearance look aged. You can put a couple drops of Visine in your eyes to clear them up. You can use it to clear up acne too. Just dot a little on the affected area and let it dry. This is a good technique for better skin.
If you have ever woken up in the morning and discovered that areas of your face are puffy, look to your refrigerator and a cucumber. You can cut up a cucumber and massage it over your entire face using a circular upward and outward motion. The cucumber has a natural astringent to help reduce swelling.
