Oh, beauty. There are many different techniques you can use to make yourself more beautiful. With so many choices available, you may wonder where to begin. These tips will give you an excellent place to start.
Prior to using a fake tan, you should ensure any unwanted hair is removed 24 hours beforehand. Whatever removal system you prefer, make certain that you are satisfied with the results and give your skin a bit of time before using your tanning product. This makes your tan as smooth and as even as possible.
Artificial eyelashes should be applied only after testing for allergic reactions. First, use the glue on another part of your body to test for an allergic reaction. It is vital to ensure the test area is well covered. This allows you to be sure how your skin will react.
If you feel your face is too square, soften the angles with a creamy coral or rose blush, applied lightly and blended well. Try applying your blush on the apples of your cheeks and fanning it out towards temples.
Use a highlighter or moisturizer that contains a gold or warm pink undertone to infuse life into your dull winter skin. Get a natural glow by using a sponge to apply bronzer above cheekbones and brow bones. Stop there; any more and you will just look shiny.
Sharpen your lip liner and eyeliner pencils after each application. This will also help you keep them clean. The best way to sharpen them is to place them in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes and then sharpen them.
Water is very important when it comes to glowing skin. Skin can look dull and dry if you don’t stay hydrated. Fight this by having eight cups of water (or more) every day. Use lemon or cranberry juice to flavor your water if you dislike plain water. This will dramatically improve your skin.
For a torn or split fingernail, use a teabag if you can’t run to the salon to fix it. Discard the tea leaves from the bag. Then trim out a portion of the emptied bag that is big enough to cover up the torn part of your nail. The last step is to put it on the torn area and use clear nail polish to cover it.
If possible, think about buying more than one container of each product you like to use, whether a powder, blush or lip gloss. Keep one with you at work and one at home. It is a great way to be prepared if you forget to put your makeup on or are in a serious rush.
Use eye drops to help your eyes sparkle. This also prevents your eyes from getting dry, itchy and irritated. Eye drops can be great if you stare at a computer all day, as they work to alleviate eye strain. Simply keep eye drops handy and use about every four hours.
It is extremely important to wash cosmetic brushes on a routine basis. Run warm water into your bathroom sank, and put in some gentle baby shampoo. Use soap to wash the bristles. Thoroughly rinse and dry them on a towel. By washing your brushes, you remove any residual makeup and prevent acne-causing bacteria from growing.
Slice a potato into thin strips. By putting this on your eyes, you can reduce puffiness. Leave the slices in place for around 10 minutes. Cucumbers, teabags and chilled teaspoons also work well. Not only do your eyes get revived, but they look less sleepy as the puffiness fades.
Use a loofah to combat imperfections in your skin. It’s a great exfoliator, leaving smooth skin behind. Use an exfoliating body scrub with this for the best results. You should use your loofah a few times every single week.
