Beauty can be a lot of fun and there are so many ways one can either improve upon their appearance or change their look entirely. So whether you need more techniques to make yourself appear more like what you want to look like or if you’re looking for something new, take a look at the tips below.
To avoid heat damage, air dry your hair. The combined heat from the hair dryer, curling iron, and straightening iron can take a major toll on the hair and scalp. When a blow dryer is a necessity, use it on the lowest setting. When you treat your hair gently, it will stay soft and supple for years to come.
Gently brush your lips with a soft toothbrush. This will help you remove dead skin cells from your lips and make them soft. You should then apply Vaseline or another type of lip balm to moisturize your lips and keep them soft. You can do this every day or every other day.
If you’re going straight from work to a night on the town, use a fluffy brush to swoosh powder over the shiny areas of your face. Emphasize your cheekbones by sparingly applying a bit of shimmery powder to the apples of each cheek.
Give yourself a quick facial at home by filling a bowl with hot water, and then steaming your face over it with a towel draped over your head. This will open your pores and help to eliminate black heads. Follow with a cold water rinse to close the pores and continue your makeup routine.
Pale or sparse eyebrows can be quickly and easily filled in to make them appear thicker and fuller. Use a disposable mascara wand to brush on dark brown eye shadow or mascara onto the brows, then comb it through with another disposable brush to smooth out the color and remove clumps.
Create the illusion of less deep-set eyes by using lightly colored eyeshadow to the entire eyelid. The light colors will appear to come forward, whereas a darker liner or shadow would have the reverse affect, making the eyes appear to recede further into the face. The color you apply should be light and very subtle.
Use a misting spray to set makeup. After you are finished fully making up your face, lightly mist yourself with a sprayer. This will set your makeup, keeping it in place longer before requiring you to touch it up. This is perfect for long nights out or events such as weddings.
Get your sleep to keep yourself looking beautiful. Do not underestimate the power of scarce sleep to age your face, and your body. You need from six to eight hours of sleep a night to rejuvenate your body, skin, and brain. All are important elements in your overall personal health.
When applying winged eyeliner, extend the line at the outer edge of your eye so that it follows the natural curve of your lower lash line. This helps it blend with the shape of your eye so that it looks more natural. The eyeliner should be thickest at the outer corner of your eye and then taper to a point at the tip of the wing.
If you are really concerned about your beauty care, avoid caffeine at all costs. Caffeine has been found to make you look older and more tired while also giving you the jitters. Limit your intake of coffee and tea to one cup each day. Try substituting green tea or decaffeinated coffee as an alternative to however many cups of the regular beverage you usually have.
Beauty can be a very effective tool to have in your arsenal for whatever needs you may have. You may already have a defined look and want to know how to save time or you may want to learn something new for a fresh look. No matter your reasons, hopefully the tips above gave you some ideas.
