When people think of someone that is beautiful, many times it is based on inner beauty as well as outer beauty. Both of these things are in your control to change. You really need to have both to look your best. Here are some tips to get you started on your own personal beauty adventure.
To avoid heat damage, air dry your hair. When you take into account that hair dryers are often followed by curling or straightening irons, the result is a lot of heat being inflicted on your hair. If you have to dry it, try to use the dryer on the lowest heat setting. By looking after your hair in this way, it will reward you with soft and silky locks for the years ahead.
Your hair follicles are very sensitive at this point because they are still open. You might experience significant irritation if you choose to tan. In the hours after waxing or sugaring, you should stay away from skin care products that contain fragrances. Fragrance can irritate your skin and cause extreme discomfort.
Use a teabag piece to protect a fingernail that rips off. You need to take the tea from the teabag first. Then, cut a small section from the bag that is big enough for covering the damaged area on your nail. Apply the bag, paint over it and the look will be complete.
You can replace costly designer beauty products with some castile soap, aloe vera gel, a toner and a washcloth. These wholesome, natural products will work wonders for any type of skin. For moisture that aloe cannot provide, use some Vitamin E oil. Use tea tree oil in place of medicated toner.
To whiten and brighten your teeth, add a little baking soda to your toothbrush once a week. Just sprinkle a little baking soda in the palm of your hand, dampen your toothbrush and press the bristles into the baking soda, add toothpaste and brush your teeth as usual. Don’t do this more than once a week since baking soda can be hard on your tooth enamel if overused.
To make your eyelashes look thicker, dust them with a coat of loose powder before applying your mascara. Use a small brush to apply a thin layer of translucent powder to your eyelashes, taking care not to get the powder in your eyes. Follow up with a coat of your favorite mascara over the top of the powder.
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.
You should have makeup remover wipes with your makeup kit. They’re not just for removing makeup at the end of the day, but also for fixing imperfections as you apply your makeup. They can help you quickly fix any mistake without destroying your entire look. Keep these wipes handy at all times for a quick fix to daily problems.
Keep the back of your head top priority when styling your hair. This area is harder to style and if you’re tired once you get around to that area it can ruin your whole look.
If you have discovered little white bumps under your eyes, know that these are called Milia and are quite common. They are a harmless form of a cyst caused by dry, dead cells being trapped under the skin. You can try exfoliation or use a moisturizer that includes an exfoliant with vitamin A to help them disappear, and prevent them in the future.
Here is an easy tip that can make anyone look better. Taking proper care of eyebrows, and making sure you always have two is crucial. If your eyebrows are bushy or grow together, trim them, and this will enhance your appearance.
If you’re concerned that your freshly painted nails will smear, you can protect them with a thin film of some type of oil. Either put a drop of olive oil on your palm and rub it over the nails, or even easier, use a can of olive oil cooking spray and give each finger just the quickest touch of cooking spray. The oil will form a protective barrier that will keep the polish from smearing.
If you are over a certain age and uncertain as to how to wear makeup in a flattering way, please take advantage of the makeup professionals at your local department store. Pick a brand that appeals to you and plunk yourself down in the chair of the most skilled-looking makeup artist. They will be happy to give you tons of free helpful advice on the best way to bring your “now” beauty out. Whether you buy their products or not is entirely up to you, but the makeover and the advice are free and yours to keep.
Eyeshadows can be tricky for eyes over 40. Metallic, glittery shadows are beautiful, but eyelid skin develops tiny folds which are, unfortunately, accentuated by those gorgeous metallic colors. On the other hand, some matte shadows look too flat and dry, and do not flatter the eye either. Instead, look for shadows that are neither matte nor metallic: “quietly lustrous” should be the goal.
Think about using eyelash extensions. These look great on brides and at other formal occasions. Extending your lashes works to open your eyes and give you a youthful appearance. The results are fantastic!
