As the old saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Beauty is what you make of it, and what you consider to be beautiful. That being said, this article will give you some beauty secrets and tips that you can start applying to your life immediately.
Take moisturizer with you by filling a used lip gloss pot or sample jar. You can put this in your purse or travel bag. A tiny drop of moisturizer to the face when your skin starts feeling dry is all you need.
A good skin care tip is to exfoliate your face. Dry or sensitive skin should be exfoliated at least three times a week to adequately scrub away dead skin and let the skin that is beneath it breathe. Doing this can give your face a more glowing appearance and will also reduce oil and dirt in your pores.
Emphasize the sharpness of your cheekbones by applying a shade of powder blush that is one shade deeper than your normal cheek color product. Using a blush brush, dab on a spot of the powder in the hollows of your cheeks just under the cheekbones. Remove excess powder, then blend in a circular motion.
Make your shampoo and conditioner last longer. If you are using an expensive shampoo or conditioner that is thick, you can stretch out the amount of use you get out of it by watering it down. Be careful not to add too much water because this can ruin it.
You can stretch the usefulness of your foundation by mixing it with your moisturizer. The moisturizer makes the foundation lighter so your makeup will not look caked on.
Even the most skilled makeup artist sometimes has difficulty applying lipstick neatly. After you have applied it, use a cleanup brush that has been dipped in powder to place the powder all along the lip outline. Next, use a disposable wedge sponge to blot away any excess powder that may be left.
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.
Pineapple is a superfood that should be a staple of any overweight person’s diet, especially if that person wants to lose the weight. Pineapples are delicious and contain large quantities of bromelain. Bromelain assists in digesting starch, fats, and proteins. This essentially speeds up your metabolism and helps you shed pounds.
A top coat will preserve your nail polish and make your manicure last longer. Put on a topcoat right when you are done with your manicure. Do this every couple of days to stop the polish from being damaged. You can extend the life of your manicure by a few days through the application of a quality top coat.
Enhance your eyes by doing work on your eyelashes. Many women just apply mascara and go on their way. If you take the additional second to curl your eyelashes prior to applying the mascara, you will accentuate the eyes better than you would if you just apply the mascara.
If you find that the nail polish that you thought was the perfect color is not the color that you wanted when you get it on your nails, consider adding a bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. It will change the color a bit and make it a little lighter.
If you are diligent in your daily hygiene routine by brushing your teeth and using mouthwash, yet you still have a problem with bad breath, you must remember to floss, as well. Flossing dislodges bacteria that are between your teeth, which could be causing the odor problem. It is recommended you floss daily.
If you are interested in speeding up your metabolism and losing weight as quickly as possible, you should make sure to include ginger in your diet. Ginger, in addition to fighting infections and detoxifying the body, warms you up and increases your body’s metabolism rate. Try adding a few slices of ginger to your morning tea and see if it helps you to lose weight.
Make any eye shadow bend to your will. If you are bored with the shadow choices in your beauty kit, it may be time to get creative. Try using a moistened brush to apply your shadow. You will find it brighter and more interesting than it was before. Try it as an eyeliner too.
Keep a small tube of hand cream in your purse to use as a hair tamer on a bad hair day. In the summer, use a tiny amount of hand cream, and run it through your hair; the tips of your fingers will tame the frizz. In the winter, put a dime-size amount of hand cream on your hands, and smooth it over your hair to eliminate static.
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.
