You’ve most likely passed the beauty counters many times in department stores. You may not realize that the people working behind the counter will apply your makeup if you ask. This article is going to give you smart tips for getting the most of your experience at the beauty counter and beyond.
Put some moisturizer in a sample jar. You could stash the portable container in a purse, travel bag or in a desk drawer at your work. When your face starts getting dry, add a small amount of moisturizer to it.
If your eyes are blue or gray, bring these colors out with eye shadows colored gold, copper or apricot. Dark brown and maroon eyeliners are the perfect finishing touch. These shades help your blue eyes stand out.
If you are going out immediately after you get off work for the night, you can freshen up your look by using a large, fluffy brush to dust on a matte powder over oily areas on your face. You can make your cheekbones have some emphasis with a gentle application of shimmery powder on your cheek temples.
If you blow dry your hair you should use a “hot spray” before you start. Many different grocery stores or department stores carry these products, which may help to prevent split ends and help reduce drying time. It works by keeping moisture in your hair, and also smells great!
To brighten dull dry skin in the winter, find a highlighter or moisturizer with just a hint of pink or gold shimmer to it. Use a makeup sponge to place the product on your brow bones, along with the apples of your cheeks to create a radiant glow. Stop there; any more and you will just look shiny.
Before you even apply mascara, make sure you have created the right shape for your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. It will help lengthen your eyelashes and make you eyes look more lifted open and bright. Squeeze your lashes at the base and keep the curler there for a second. Next, move it outward slightly and squeeze and hold again. This gives a more natural look to your eyelashes.
To fix a damaged fingernail, get a teabag and cut a small piece from it. You need to take the tea from the teabag first. Then trim out a portion of the emptied bag that is big enough to cover up the torn part of your nail. Lastly, glue the piece over the tear with some clear nail polish.
Here is an awesome makeup application tip. To make your lashes appear to have more volume, use waterproof lengthening mascara. Mascaras often claim that they will curl your lashes or add volume. Many of these formulas are quite heavy. Your lashes may be weighed down by the mascara in these formulas. Some lengthening formulas make your lashes look longer and enhance their natural curl. These types of mascara offer greater volume, and an upward curl to lashes.
Put a little pop in your beauty regimen by adding some shimmery eye shadow as part of your look. The glittery eyeshadow makes eyes look bigger and brighter. You should choose from shades that shimmer in a shade close to your own skin tone. It’s fun to try new colors as well as different ways to wear them. You’ll love the new looks that you come up with.
