Many people are looking for different things to add to their beauty routine because they want to feel beautiful. There are many different tips and tricks over the years you have heard but may have forgotten. This article contains tips and tricks that will help you look and feel more beautiful.
Apply a moisturizer that is light before putting a fake tan on your skin. A fake tan will collect on spots of your skin that are dry. You should make sure you pay attention to your feet, elbows, knees and around your wrists. Apply lotion to these areas before applying a fake tanner.
Red eyes make you look tired and worn out. Carry a bottle of eye drops in your purse and reapply as needed throughout the day. At home, keep a bottle of eye drops in the refrigerator to refresh your eyes when you get home from a day in a dry, air conditioned office.
Lightly dust powder onto your skin to freshen up your makeup midday. Add a bit of shimmer to your cheekbones to further enhance your nighttime look.
To make small eyes appear larger, try lining your lower waterline with a white or peach colored eyeliner. By lightening the color of your waterline so it blends better with the white part of your eye, you can create the illusion that your eyes are larger and brighter than they really are.
To achieve healthy skin, use a dry, soft brush on the surface of the skin prior to showering; this will stimulate your oil glands and help keep moisture in your skin. Brush in circular motions, from your feet to your head, and finally, take a warm shower and use a mild soap.
To give your hair more volume, consider trying a new haircut with layers. Layers are one of the most effective ways to add volume to fine limp hair. Even if you like to wear your hair long, you can still have your stylist cut long layers into the top for a major volume boost.
To get even more mileage out of your favorite eye gel, keep it in the refrigerator! The ingredients in eye gel work hard to restore and protect the delicate skin around your eyes and keeping it cold enhances the refreshment factor ten fold! The cold will also work immediately to reduce that dreadful puffiness!
Sometimes, when coloring your hair, you may find that the color you chose simply isn’t strong or intense enough for your liking. You can solve this problem by purchasing a second box of color, mixing half the product with shampoo, and reapplying it to just-colored hair. Let it sit for only 5-10 minutes before rinsing and you will find the color intensified.
If you’re in between hair dresser appointments, and need to hide some roots, use dark mascara on black or brunette hair and gold eye shadow on blond hair! Nobody is perfect and if you’ve scheduled your hair salon appointment too far in advance to save your roots from showing, brush them lightly with appropriately colored mascara or combine hair spray and blond shades of powder to conceal those roots until you can see your stylist!
If your skin looks like it could use a wake-up, try this idea. Use a hot, damp washcloth (with a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it, or plain is fine too) and press it gently against your face for a minute. Finish with a splash of very cold water. The heat will improve your facial circulation and open your pores, while the cold water will tighten your skin and wake you up generally.
Everyone loves the way a perfect sheer nails look, with long and tapered nails, but this is very expensive to keep up and takes a lot of time and patience. For an elegant look without all the fuss of expensive and painstaking upkeep, try using a short, round, and dark nail shape. File the nails so they are in line with the tip of the finger and round off near the corners.
You can pour a little nail polish remover in your favorite nail polish to make it last a bit longer. Make sure that you shake it really well before you apply it as you normally would. It will be a lighter shade, but will otherwise be quite similar.
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.
If you are fixing your hair, do not start at the front. You have to pay a lot of attention to the nethermost regions of your hair because it’s hard to reach this area. Start there to ensure your arms don’t tire out before you finish.
As part of your beauty routine, buy high quality makeup brushes. High quality brushes contain fine hairs, which will make your cosmetic application even. They are also soft on the skin, so you can avoid those micro scratches that can lead to wrinkles and blemishes. A high quality set will cost more, but it is well worth the investment.
Perhaps you bought a self-tanning device, thinking it would give your skin a healthful look. But the actual results may be unhealthy looking streaks instead. In order to correct this mishap, put some baking soda on a wet cloth or loofah sponge, and simply buff the streaks until they are gone.
