So, you want to try your hand at beauty, eh? Do you know anything about this activity? Do you know about all the different kinds of products that you can use? Do you know what entails a successful look? If these questions raise more questions than you can answer, try looking at the tips below.
Keep Vitamin E handy. It’s useful for many things. It can help keep your skin healthy and soft. Rub a small amount of Vitamin E on your fingernails to alleviate dry, rough cuticles.
Before putting on your favorite sandals for the summer season, take the time to moisturize your feet using Vaseline. Before bed, slather your feet with a thick layer of Vaseline and cover them with an old pair of socks. As you sleep, the Vaseline will penetrate thick, calloused skin, helping to eliminate cracks and dryness. The next morning when you remove the socks, your feet will be soft and supple so you can wear your favorite sandals with pride.
To keep feet looking beautiful, especially during the warmer, dryer summer months, try applying Vaseline to them every day. It will keep them smooth and soft. Then go get yourself a pedicure and a pair of brand new sassy sandals, and you’ll have the best looking feet of the season.
To make close set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heaver on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.
Do you have trouble with your nailpolish getting chipped? Using a top coat can keep your nails looking good for a week. Make sure not to confuse this with normal clear nail polish, because there is a difference. You need to buy the top coat instead of the clear nail polish.
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.
Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.
Keep your makeup light and simple. If you put on too much makeup you can stress your skin, and make yourself look older than you are. The best beauty is often the least complicated. Keep your routine to a quality moisturizer, followed with lip gloss and a good mascara.
To improve your lip color application, always apply lip balm first. The lip balm will leave your lips soft and moisturized, and will allow your lip color to go on smoothly. Try using a basic, untinted lip balm so that you don’t effect the color of the lipstick or lip gloss you’re using.
If you want your makeup to look the way it was intended, clean your brushes thoroughly. Use a gentle soap and warm water to rinse until the water runs clear. Rinse the brushes completely, blot with a towel, and set on a clean surface to air dry. This method reduces acne causing bacteria from building up in the brush’s bristles.
You can save a lot of money by trimming your own bangs at home. First, make sure you have the proper scissors. Spend the money for a small pair of good haircutting scissors. Trim your bangs dry. How to trim them will depend on your hair type, but most people do best by dividing the bangs into three sections, holding the hair up in a twist, and taking small diagonal snips so that the cuts aren’t straight. Drop the twist, see how you look, and repeat until it’s short enough for your liking.
If you haven’t taken care of your physical appearance for a long time, don’t be scared off by the amount of work it takes to improve it. Although the initial time investment might be high it is much easier to maintain a good appearance than to initially create it.
You can break your beauty routine into small increments. If you break up the days that you take care of yourself you will only need small 10 minute blocks. Trying to squeeze all your efforts into a single day will get pretty overwhelming and may cause you to slack on yourself.
To keep from getting eye bags, drink plenty of water before you go to bed. One of the leading causes of eyebags is dehydration during the night. If you still have eyebags when you wake up, rest cold, caffeinated teabags on your eyes for about 10 minutes. This will nourish your eyes and make the bags disappear.
Using a towel can actually cause damage to your hair and leave it looking frizzy and unhealthy. Blot or scrunch your wet hair with a towel instead of rubbing. Drying your hair this way is slower, but it’s much better for it.
Many people tend to get dead skin on their lips. This makes them look old and dry. A great way to prevent this from happening is to brush your lips gently with a toothbrush every single day. After you have done this, you will want to put some balm on to keep them protected.
