Most normal people want to look good. Hardly anyone sets out in the morning with the intentions of making themselves appear unattractive. With this having been said, there are many ways one can go about obtaining and/or improving their beauty. This article contains great ideas about where to start.
If you allow your hair to air dry as much as you can, your hair will not suffer from heat damage. Combined heating tools like hair dryers and flat/curling irons can majorly damage the scalp and hair. If you have to dry it, try to use the dryer on the lowest heat setting. Your hair will retain a softer, silkier look for much longer.
Disposable mascara wands, which are often known by makeup artists as “spoolies”, are a cheap and effective tool for your makeup kit. These tiny brushes are useful to break up clumps in the lashes and brush off excess mascara without spoiling your makeup. In a pinch, they can also be used to groom your eyebrows. They should be disposed after each use.
Unless you are suffering from severe acne, you should be sure to use a moisturizer that includes emollients, which help your skin to soak up moisture from the environment. Other ingredients, such as humectants, can actually attract moisture to the skin. Dry skin would benefit from a moisturizer with a heavy, creamy consistency.
To give your medium-to long-length hair a quick boost of volume in the morning, turn your head upside down, then apply a spray-on product like mousse or serum to add volume. Aim for the roots, then scrunch your hair at the crown and sides. Turn right-side up, then use your fingers to smooth the top layer.
To keep skin looking fresh, carry moisturizer around with you. This is especially important during the winter. The cold weather can crack and damage your skin. Regularly applying moisturizer will keep your skin soft and looking great.
Instead of simply applying lipstick directly to your lips from the tube, invest in a good lip brush. This allows you to create a more well-defined shape that does not smear or smudge around the mouth. Pucker up, then pull your finger through your lips to prevent any lipstick from smudging on your teeth.
You can camouflage an unsightly double chin by brushing on a swipe of rosy-brown powder blush along your jawline from your ears to your chin. Next, use a light, translucent powder on your natural chin and blend the entire area very well. This may take a bit of practice, but when done properly, it makes a noticeable difference.
Apply eye shadow to seal in eyeliner. When you are making up your eyes, apply your liner before your eye shadow. Then, when applying the shadow, slightly dampen a cotton swab and add some eye shadow. Smooth this over the liner and you will find it lasts much longer.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
Curry leaves can fight off greying. The chutney contains things your body needs to form the cells that product hair pigments. One teaspoon is all that needs to be eaten.
If you want your hair to stay resilient and lively, let it have a break occasionally from hot dryers and curling irons. Allowing your hair to air dry and going natural with it will help your hair to recover from the heat of different styling tools.
If you find that the nail polish that you thought was the perfect color is not the color that you wanted when you get it on your nails, consider adding a bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. It will change the color a bit and make it a little lighter.
A good skin care routine will help you look good and contribute to the health of your skin. The basics are regular exfoliation to remove dead skin and moisturizing to preserve elasticity. It is a good idea to use lotion once or twice every day.
To get rid of any puffy skin, try putting some ice in your mouth. Also, splash your face with cold water, this will further aid in a reduction of the puffiness.
Are you looking for a simple soft look? First apply a light liquid foundation. This will give you a natural feel. If you need to even out your skin you can also apply concealer. Next, apply a soft creamy brown eyeshadow and a coat of light mascara. Last, add peach tinted lip gloss. This will give you the simple fresh look you are looking for.
Use a base coat, two layers of polish and a top coat to maximize the length of time that your nail polish will look great. This will give you the look of a professional manicure and keeps the varnish on the nail much longer than what one coat of polish would.
If you find that plucking your eyebrows is a painful experience for you, consider investing in some bongela. If you take the time to apply this product to your eyebrow area prior to plucking, you are going to find that it is not nearly as painful as it once was.
