Though the process may seem overwhelming at first, the first step is to start familiarizing yourself with various products and beauty treatments. The following tips will distill some of the basic knowledge into an easily digestible form so you can choose a beauty routine that fits your needs.
Use a curler on your lashes. A lot of people don’t think about how much better eyelashes look after curling them. Curling your eyelashes brightens your eyes and makes them look bigger. Heated curlers are a great way to increase the longevity of this effect.
Research as shown that symmetrical faces seem to be the most beautiful. So, if you are hoping to be more beautiful, do what you can to have some symmetry. This works for putting on your makeup, trimming up your beard or mustache or anything else.
For your eyes, emphasize grays and blues by using copper, apricot and gold eyeshadow colors. Go for eyeliners and mascara that are dark such as brown or purple. These colors will accentuate the blue hue of your eyes and really make them pop.
Regardless of how hard we try to maintain a clear complexion, almost everyone deals with acne and pimples at some point. If you get a breakout or any type of skin blemish, then a good home solution is to get some toothpaste and dab it on your skin. Leave the toothpaste on your skin for ten minutes or so. This will dry out your skin and should reduce the redness and swelling of the blemish.
If you feel your face is too square, soften the angles with a creamy coral or rose blush, applied lightly and blended well. Apply the blush to your cheeks with your fingers and gently fan the color towards your temples.
Sharpen your lip liner and eyeliner pencils after each application. That way, you know that they are clean and ready for use. The best way to sharpen them is to place them in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes and then sharpen them.
Exercise on a regular basis, preferably daily. Exercising on a daily basis will help you stay limber and healthy. Exercise is an important part of your beauty arsenal. Get at least 15 to 20 minutes of exercise every day. Whether you chose to vacuum your house, walk around the block, or run with your dog, it is important to include physical activity in your day.
Mend haggard fingernails with a teabag. To begin, take out the tea leaves from the bag. The next step is to cut out a piece of the teabag that will fit the torn area of your nail. Then, put that on top of your nail and cover the whole thing with some clear nail polish.
Pink lipstick is a perfect concealer for imperfections. No, do not apply the lipstick directly on your blemishes. A light shade of pink lipstick on your lips will catch people’s attention and keep them looking where you want them too. If you use a quality concealer, and allow your lips to really stand out, your acne will be much less noticeable.
Try storing some of your make-up in your refrigerator. This can be a refreshing tip, especially in the summertime. If you keep your toners, oils and lotions in the fridge, you can put them on even if you are experiencing a heatwave. Your skin will also enjoy the cooling effect.
As you can see, there are quite a few beauty regimins out there, but they share many of the same roots. They vary due to the techniques and products. All it takes to decide between them is some research and common sense to find the best ones that work with you, your budget and your own skill set.
