You have probably passed by the department store beauty counters more times than you can remember. You may not realize that the people working behind the counter will apply your makeup if you ask. The following paragraphs are full of ideas you can use the next time you are at this counter and even when you are at home.
Apply some kind of moisturizer to your face regularly. This holds true for even the oiliest or greasiest of skin. Sun protection is very important so make sure the moisturizer you choose has an SPF value.
Want pouty, sensual lips? Put a little dab of white eyeshadow right below the divot between your nose and upper lip. Brightening this spot makes it catch light and look lusciously full.
If you have a square-shaped face, use a coral or creamy rose blush to soften the angular appearance. Apply cream blush with your fingers, gently fanning the color from the apple of your cheek out toward your temples.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler prior to applying mascara. This increases their perceived length and brightens your eyes. Beginning with the base of the eyelashes, hold the curler and squeeze for a few seconds. Then, you want to move the curler gently in the direction of the ends of your lashes, where you will squeeze it again. This helps make the curling angle more natural instead of abrupt.
Try to avoid very hot water when showering or bathing. This makes your pores expand, which allows skin oils leave. You then are likely to wash them away. Use lukewarm water to maximize skin beauty and softness. You can also save money on the heating bill.
Peppermint oil mixed with water makes a really good, natural and alcohol free mouthwash. Put a drop of peppermint oil in for each ounce of water. First boil the water, and measure the drops of oil into a large Pyrex or ceramic container. Pour in the boiling water. Cover the mixture with a cloth and leave to cool. Pour this into a container, such as a bottle, with an air-tight lid. Now you have homemade mouthwash!
Fruits and vegetable juices contain antioxidants that can be nurturing to the skin. Vegetables and fruits are excellent ways to nourish and energize your skin and body. Drinking vegetable or fruit juice is an easy way to add them into your regular eating schedule. If you substitute fruit juices for your sodas, you will begin to notice improvements in the appearance of your skin.
Here is a beauty tip! Give your lashes plump volume with a lengthening mascara. Many brands of mascara have a formula specifically devoted to boosting length and curl. The truth is that these products often just leave your lashes clumpy and flake off. They will just make your lashes weighed down. Try using a lengthening, waterproof formula instead. This will help your lashes look voluminous and curl upward.
A great way to switch up your beauty routine and add a little spark to your makeup is to use shimmer eye shadow. Adding a little shine to your lids makes your eyes appear bright and large. Use a shimmer that is similar to your skin tone. Feel free to try different application techniques or colors.
