A beauty regimen shouldn’t be a chore. Knowing what to do can make it a highlight of your day. If you’re not sure what to do, you can look less than your best or use products that are irritating and harmful. Here are some suggestions to help you look your best.
If you are light skinned or have light hair you may want to consider tinting your eyebrows. This will enhance the color of your eyebrows and will draw attention to your eyes and brows. You can tint your eyebrows by yourself and can find the the tint at most beauty stores.
Baking soda can bring out the shine in your hair! Mix a little baking soda with your shampoo in your hand. Wash your hair. This helps restore the shine to your hair.
If your face is a bit on the long side, you can make the effect seem less severe, simply by using some well-placed cream blush. Opt for a dark rose or brick shade, then use your fingertips to apply the color only on the apples of your cheeks; do not extend the color past this point, as it can actually make your face appear, even more narrow.
You can apply makeup to your wide-set eyes in a way that is very flattering and can make the eyes appear closer together. First, apply a dark brown or navy eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes, then blend it with a sponge. Apply your eyeshadow at the inner corners, then blend well outward.
To give your hair more volume, consider trying a new haircut with layers. Layers are one of the most effective ways to add volume to fine limp hair. Even if you like to wear your hair long, you can still have your stylist cut long layers into the top for a major volume boost.
Eat more tomatoes as part of your beauty routine. Tomatoes have many health benefits, and special benefits for beauty. Studies have shown that people who have a diet high in tomatoes, also have less wrinkles. They also are less susceptible to sunburn than people who have no tomato in their diet.
Cucumbers or rosewater will help alleviate dark circle under your eyes. The natural properties in these items lighten the skin pigments beneath your eyes while cooling them. Dip a cotton pad into one of the two liquids, and leave the pad over your eyes for 15 minutes.
Immediately after you have applied your lipstick, insert your clean index finger between your lips. Next, remove your finger from your mouth while pursing your lips. This little trick will help you remove lipstick that gets stuck inside your lips instead of landing on your teeth, while keeping the lipstick intact.
Do not condition every day if your hair is very fine. In fact, using it once or twice a week would be plenty. Overuse of conditioner will make your hair look dull, and can weigh it down. If you want light and shiny hair, use conditioner sparingly.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
Beauty routines do not have to be complicated! You may need to research and practice the techniques, but that is a small sacrifice compared to the results. These tips should help you be more informed about making beauty decisions.
