When you think of beauty, do you just see it as something that makes your commute take much longer? If so, then you have a very narrow view of the subject. Beauty is so much more than that and it can be personalized so that it works with your own schedule. Read on to find out how.
Fill an empty lip gloss pot or a miniscule sample jar with your preferred moisturizer. You can easily carry this with you in your car, make-up bag, purse or stash it in your work desk. A tiny drop of moisturizer to the face when your skin starts feeling dry is all you need.
If you want to add a pinch of color to your face midday, consider stocking up on a stick of cream blush or a gel-based cheek blusher. Apply a small amount to the apples of your cheek, then blending in circular motions. This keeps your face looking fresh in a natural and easily applied in a manner that is especially flattering.
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.
You can use baking soda to restore your hair’s shininess! Add a pinch of baking soda to your daily application of shampoo. Continue to wash your hair as you normally would. Your hair will soon look shiny and healthy.
Consider a new hairstyle for a more narrow-appearing face. Go for a cut with long, sleek lines and a length that falls between the shoulders and the jawline. You can even add lowlights and highlights that help frame the face. These are quite flattering and highlight the features of your face.
It’s important to use hair products that have heat protectants in them, especially if you use hair dryers or curling irons on a regular basis. If you regularly use these tools, they can damage your hair. Using hair products which contain heat protectants can reduce the amount of damage that the appliances cause to your hair and make it look shiny, too.
Use a misting spray to set makeup. After you are finished fully making up your face, lightly mist yourself with a sprayer. This will set your makeup, keeping it in place longer before requiring you to touch it up. This is perfect for long nights out or events such as weddings.
To make close set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heaver on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.
Avoid licking your lips. When you constantly lick your lips, rather than become moist, they actually dry out. Try carrying a lip balm or gloss in your pocket or purse, and put it on anytime you feel like doing some licking. You will soon find your lips in beautiful condition.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
For a concealer, make use of the foundation stuck to the container’s cap. If you have run out of concealer and need to use some, just take the makeup that has collected under the cap of your foundation. It is the perfect concealer because it already matches your skin tone and is thick.
You may not have stuck your finger in an electrical socket, but your hair frizzes might suggest you had. To tame these nasty beasts, you will want to add moisture to your hair. Stay away from hairspray as it has alcohol that dries the hair. Apply hair serum to damp hair to lock in the moisture, and keep uncontrolled hair at bay.
When applying make up you want to be sure that you do it in a gentle way. If you use strokes that are too strong you can have two problems. The first of these is that the abrasive nature of the strokes can damage your skin. Secondly, it leads to a lack of control and worse makeup.
Try putting some Vaseline on your lips with a tooth brush. If you do this daily, it will improve the feel and appearance of your lips. Your lipstick will go on more evenly and your lips will be much softer than they were. You will really be quite pleased when you see the results.
Try using an egg mask. Eating eggs can have a lot of health benefits. You can use eggs to enhance your outward beauty too. You should crack a few eggs in a small bowl, smearing the mixture on your face. Let it dry for about twenty minutes, then wash it off. The egg mask will reduce oils from your skin while shrinking your pores.
