So, you want to put in more effort toward looking attractive. It’s always great to put effort into your look. Beauty involves a bit of skill. Do you understand how to use these techniques and products? These tips will help you to apply products in the correct manner.
New products called mattifying lotions are perfect for any makeup kit because they can be applied anywhere on the face that appears slick from excessive oils. These lotions often have a creamy or heavy gel consistency and can be applied without a mirror; it also provides a smooth foundation upon which your makeup can be applied.
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.
It is important to use a skin moisturizer on the face. Having greasy or oily skin doesn’t necessarily mean your skin is well moisturized, so make sure you still use a daily lotion. Be sure to use a moisturizer with an SPF in it.
Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
Position the mirror below your face when you put on eyeshadow. Do your best to keep from putting pressure or pulling on your eyelids. You can do this flawlessly if you look down while applying. You will be able to see your eyelids better and won’t have to touch them.
Use petroleum jelly daily to get soft feet. Petroleum jelly is the base of many expensive skin softeners. You can save yourself a lot of money by purchasing just plain petroleum jelly. Apply petroleum jelly every other day for feet that are smooth, rather than dry and peely.
Choose your eyeshadow based on your eye color to make your eye makeup really pop. If your eyes are blue, shades of brown are the most flattering. For brown eyes, try purple shadows like lavender or plum. If your eyes are green, golden shades are very flattering, as are many shades from the brown family.
Smoking, besides being linked to a myriad of health problems, also has an extremely negative affect on the way you look. One of the best beauty tips is to never smoke a cigarette in your life, and if you are a smoker, stop immediately. Smoking prematurely ages the skin and causes wrinkles, it makes acne worse and it turns your teeth yellow.
Your makeup applicators should be cleaned regularly to reduce infections. Use a mild cleanser and warm water, gently removing old makeup and skin cells from the bristles. Rinse all soap residue off completely and allow them to air-dry overnight. By doing so, your bristles will not clog up with makeup and your chances of being exposed to acne-causing bacteria are lessened.
