It can either be easy to stay on top of beauty techniques, or very difficult. This list of tips should put you “in the know” to properly apply techniques and products to your beauty regimen.
Before you get a fake tan, get rid of all unwanted body hair one day before the application. Either waxing or shaving will be effective but make sure it’s not closer than one day prior to using the tan products. That way, your skin will be smooth and any inflammation from the hair removal process will have subsided.
You can increase the appearance of the size of your lips by adding a little white eye-shadow at the indentation of the top lip. The illusion of fuller lip is the result of the reflection of the light that this highlighting provides.
Keep a moisturizer on hand to keep your skin looking fresh. This definitely holds true during the colder winter months, which is when skin tends to crack and break easier. Also, moisturizer will reduce flaking, which can help your overall appearance.
When your skin loses its tan becoming pale in winter, a rosier tone can be attained by adding a pink or gold tone product to facial makeup. A cosmetics sponge is key to applying makeup to your brows and your cheeks. Don’t add to any other place on your face though.
Use restraint when using shimmer, only applying it to areas that will catch the light. Putting it where the light will hit it creates a nice glow effect. Use highlighter on facial planes like your cheeks, brows and nose.
Dry and brush your skin before bathing to keep cells stimulated. Do the brushing using a circular motion from the bottom up, and then shower gently with soap.
As part of your beauty regimen, have at least one glass of milk everyday. Research has indicated that a glass of milk each day can help your skin and your bones. Milk has a lot of protein and builds muscles. It can also help you shed some weight. A simple yet helpful beauty tool is milk.
Make a natural, alcohol free mouthwash using purified water and peppermint oil. For each ounce of water used, add one droplet of oil. After boiling the water, add the drops of peppermint oil to a large glass container. Add the boiling water. Use a clean cloth to cover the container; then let it cool. Pour the liquid into a bottle that has a lid that fits tightly. You now have your own custom mouthwash!
Add shimmer eye shadow to your beauty regiment. Because the shimmery particles in the makeup reflect light, these shadows can create the illusion of bigger, brighter eyes. You should choose from shades that shimmer in a shade close to your own skin tone. Try different shades and apply them in with different utensils until you find the right look.
Eye drops help your eyes to glisten. Also, this prevents eye irritation and dryness. If you work on a computer eight hours a day, this will help to rehydrate your eyes. Pack a small bottle to carry with you, and use it two to three times per day.
You can substantially beautify your face by having gorgeous eyelashes. Always use your eyelash curler to show off those lashes to their full potential. This small step draws attention to your curled eyelashes.
Foundation makes for a great concealer. If your concealer runs out and you just need a little, use the makeup that’s accumulated beneath your foundation cap. This makeup will work perfectly as a concealer because it is thick and covers imperfections.
Add some Epsom salts to your beauty regimen. Epsom salts are know to have benefits like making muscles feel better, and they may be a great mild laxative. If you mix this salt with lavender, you can create a soothing and relaxing paste. Apply this paste to any problem areas that you have and leave it on overnight. Your skin is going to look better in the morning.
As you have learned, much more goes into a good beauty routine than people would normally think. It requires knowledge and perseverance, but the results are worth the effort. Using these tips will have you on the way to feeling better about yourself.
